The Snowman™ and The Snowdog come to life on brand new UK 50p!

A brand-new UK 50p is now available, marking the 10th anniversary of the first premiere of ‘The Snowman™ and The Snowdog‘ film.

The critically acclaimed animated sequel, ‘The Snowman™ and The Snowdog‘, suitably premiered on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve, 2012.

It was created with the late Raymond Briggs’ blessing and subsequently, in 2015, a book of the film was published by Puffin, bringing words to the story for the first time. 

And, for the first time ever The Snowdog joins The Snowman on a UK 50p!

Interestingly for collectors, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog 50p features a design by award-winning illustrator Robin Shaw.

As well as being an accredited designer, Shaw also acted as assistant director on the 2012 film!

2022 UK The Snowman™ and The Snowdog

Undeniably, Snowman™ coins are some of the most popular out there, with previous issues selling out remarkably fast.

Three out of the now five Snowman™ 50ps are also no longer available at The Royal Mint, meaning you need to act fast to get your hands on this new coin.

And considering the brand new UK Snowman™ and The Snowdog 50p is available the same year as Raymond Briggs’ passing, it is comparatively the most poignant yet.

It’s also guaranteed to be one of the last UK coins with Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait on the obverse. This is sure to drive demand for this brand new 50p

UK 50p issued marking the 100th anniversary of the BBC

The BBC has broadcasted some of the world’s most exciting highs over the past 100 years but has also had the hard task of delivering some of the biggest lows.

And to mark this centenary milestone, The Royal Mint have issued a UK 50p with a design that symbolises the BBC’s global impact.

Radio and television have revolutionised our everyday, providing us with important news and endless entertainment.

Last year we saw John Logie Baird, ‘The Father of the Television’, celebrated on a UK 50p coin – and quite rightly so, because where would we be without our TVs?

Queen Elizabeth II's portrait features on the obverse.

The design features key milestones from Baird’s life, presented between lines of transmission.

But this isn’t the first coin to showcase a design with waves of transmission. The Royal Mint marked the 100th anniversary of wireless transmission in 2001 with a UK £2, pictured below.

In 1901, Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian physicist, succeeded in sending the first radio transmission across the Atlantic Ocean.

The message – simply containing the Morse code signal for the letter ‘s’ – travelled more than 2,000 miles from Poldhu in Cornwall to Newfoundland in Canada and won him worldwide fame and a Nobel Prize in physics in 1909.

Both coins have been popular with collectors, suggesting this new 2022 UK 100th Anniversary of our BBC CERTIFIED BU 50p may reach the same levels of demand.
