2022 UK Platinum Jubilee 50p

2022 sees Her Majesty become the first monarch in British history to reach her Platinum Jubilee, so it’s only fitting that this moment has been captured for the very first time on the UK’s most collected coin!

And, this UK first also features new designs on BOTH the reverse and obverse!

Experienced coin artist John Bergdahl has created a stunning commemorative Jubilee portrait of Her Majesty on horseback, which is reminiscent of previous jubilee designs, including the 1953 coronation crown!

Created by design agency Osborne Ross, the reverse features the number 70 in a striking centralized design, with the dates 1952 and 2022, beneath The Queen’s royal cypher.

I’m sure you’ll agree that this coin is one of the most exciting issues we’ve ever seen.

We’ve never-before-seen a UK 50p mark such a significant event and it’s only right that the UK’s first royal 50p, should feature such an exciting design.

This is also the first time that we’ve ever seen the portrait of Her Majesty on horseback feature on the 50p!

2022 UK Platinum Jubilee £5

As the perfect accompaniment to this stunning new 50p, The Royal Mint have also issued a brand new £5 coin to celebrate Her Majesty’s Jubilee.

Set to rival the collecting frenzy of the Queen’s first Jubilee Crown released in 1977, this brand new release features a design created especially for collectors.

In 1977, Her Majesty celebrated 25 years on the throne – her Silver Jubilee and the first of her reign. The Royal Mint issued this commemorative crown. The coin’s reverse design is focused upon the Coronation theme and features the Ampulla and anointing spoon from the Royal regalia surrounded by a heraldic floral pattern and the Crown.

The coin’s obverse takes inspiration from the 1953 Coronation Crown, showing a newly designed image of the Queen on horseback.

Unusually, this coin does not feature an edge inscription or date on its reverse, making it the only crown of its kind at the time of issue. It was also one of the last crowns to be issued with a face value of 25 pence (commemorative crowns issued after 1990 have a face value of £5), which makes it continually sought-after among collectors!

Reminiscent of the 1953 Coronation Crown, the 2022 Platinum Jubilee £5 features a special obverse design of the Queen riding on horseback – only found on the individual release of this coin!

The reverse design by John Bergdahl includes the Queen’s garter robes in a fitting tribute to her 70 years upon the throne.

As you’d expect with such a stunning issue, this coin will come struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality, protectively encapsulated in Official Change Checker packaging.

The 2022 UK Annual Coins are HERE!

Each year, collectors eagerly anticipate the arrival of the The Royal Mint’s Annual Set.

These coins commemorate some of the key anniversaries of the year ahead and it means we get treated to FIVE brand new coin designs!

With some momentous anniversaries coming up this year, the issues in the 2022 Annual Set are some of the MOST poignant yet.

So, let’s kick off the year with the coins we’ve all been waiting for, the 2022 Annual Set.

Platinum Jubilee 50p

Kicking things off with a UK FIRST, is the brand new 2022 Platinum Jubilee 50p.

2022 UK Platinum Jubilee 50p

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the United Kingdom’s longest reigning monarch, with an incredible 70 years of service to the crown.

In tribute to this record-breaking achievement, The Royal Mint have issued the UK’s very first royal 50p!

Designed by Osborne Ross, the coin features a slick reverse design that shows the number 70, the royal cypher and the years that span her reign so far.

Her Majesty’s fifth portrait, by Jody Clark, also features on the obverse of this coin.

What an incredible anniversary for Her Majesty to be celebrating this year and I’m sure you’ll agree that this stunning 50p is a wonderful tribute to her.

The UK’s VERY FIRST Royal 50p will be issued individually in just two days’ time, on the 6th January. This version will feature a special obverse design not found in the Annual Set… Stay tuned to find out more!

Commonwealth Games 50p

The Commonwealth Games was first held in 1930 and with the exception of wartime (1942 and 1946) has taken place every four years since then!

2022 UK Commonwealth Games 50p

In the entire 92-year history, 2022 marks only the third time that England has played host to the games! So to mark the occasion, The Royal Mint has issued this brand new 50p.

Featuring a design by Royal Mint designer Natasha Preece, this 50p represents the essence of Birmingham 2022 with a striking geometric design.

We think it’s the perfect tribute to Birmingham hosting the games for the very first time and a great way to wish all of the athletes good luck.

Alexander Graham Bell £2

Alexander Graham Bell was a Scottish-born inventor, scientist, and engineer who patented the first practical telephone.

In the 100th anniversary year since his passing, The Royal Mint have issued this brand new £2 coin.

The coin features a design showing the dial of a push-button phone, alongside the words ‘pioneer of the telephone’ inscribed into the buttons.

It’s hard to image a life without our phones, but before Bell’s work, it was a complete unknown.

It was back in 1871 that Bell first started work on his harmonic telegraph, which allowed multiple messages to be transmitted over a wire at the same time.

And in 1876, he made his very first telephone call to Thomas Watson and was then granted his telephone patent.

The design of this coin perfectly celebrates all of Bell’s achievements in making real-time long-distance communication possible.

Dame Vera Lynn £2

In 2020, we received the sad news that Dame Vera Lynn had sadly passed away. The iconic wartime singer was famous for boosting the morale of British troops during WWII.

Coined as the forces sweetheart, her renditions of We’ll Meet Again, The White Cliffs of Dover and I’ll Be Seeing You, became synonyms with wartime.

Dame Vera Lynn played such a key role during wartime that Buckingham Palace sent a private message of condolence to her family.

And in 2022, to commemorate her life and achievements, The Royal Mint commemorates her on a brand new £2 coin.

2022 UK Dame Vera Lynn £2

Designed by The Royal Mint design team, this £2 features a detailed portrait of Dame Vera Lynn as she appeared during the height of her fame.

The popularity of her songs has carried across generations. In 2020, her songs still spoke to the nation with a similar level of emotion as they did in 1940 – a testament to her charm, skill, and beautiful voice.

Platinum Jubilee £5

In this very special anniversary year for Her Majesty, we have been treated to not one but TWO Platinum Jubilee coins.

This £5, designed by John Bergdahl features a stunning reverse design. The royal mantle appears as a surround, as it was used on the coinage of William IV!

Inheriting the throne at the age of just 25, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has remained a national constant as head of state since 6 February 1952.

Since then, the nation has watched her grow from a young queen to the much-loved monarch that she is today.

The dates 1952-2022 feature on the reverse design, in a poignant tribute to her incredible 70 years of service to the crown.


I’m sure you’ll agree that this year’s Annual Coin Set is the most impressive to date.

With some incredible anniversaries and events coming up this year, there’s no doubt these coins will be in high demand with collectors.

Don’t forget, the UK’s VERY FIRST Royal 50p will be issued individually in just two days’ time (6th January) – stay tuned to find out more!

Isle of Man celebrates 140 years of women’s suffrage with brand new £2 coin set!

Did you know that the Isle of Man was the first place in the world where a woman could vote in national elections?

In fact, it was in 1881 that women householders were given the vote – 47 years ahead of the UK!

This momentous event has now been commemorated on a unique four-coin £2 set issued by the Isle of Man to commemorate 140 years since the campaign for women’s suffrage on the island.

The coin set features the names of the four pioneering women who first cast their vote on the Isle of Man, and show the voters names documented as Eliza Jane Goldsmith, Catherine Callow, Esther Kee and Margaret Kelvin.

Limited Availability

This special commemorative £2 set will be on sale for JUST TWO WEEKS, meaning availability is extremely limited and you’ll need to order fast to avoid disappointment.

What’s more, coins from the Isle of Man are particularly sought-after due to their much lower mintage figures compared to UK counterparts and with such a significant topic being celebrated, demand for the new coins is set to be incredibly high.
