The Discovery

In 1922, British Egyptologist Howard Carter dared to explore a neglected stairway within the Valley of the Kings. And, as the world would later learn, one of his biggest discoveries lay at the bottom. Can you just imagine the excitement Carter and his team felt at the time?

The burial chamber of Tutankhamun had been untouched for over 3000 years, until the door was opened in February 1923. Ever since this historic discovery, the world has been intrigued by artefacts found in the tomb.

So, I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s only fitting that this Egyptian discovery is marked on a UK £5 coin by The Royal Mint!

Across the highly detailed buttons, you can see letters that spell out: ‘Pioneer of the Telephone’. What a fantastic way to show that Bell was, truly, the Pioneer of the Telephone!

This innovative feature will surely be a hit with collectors, as it follows the excitement of the secret messages within the Alan Turing 50p, released just last month!

And, these aren’t the first scientific innovators to appear on UK coins. In fact, the first 50p in the UK’s Innovation in Science series celebrated Stephen Hawking – making him one of ONLY three people to be celebrated on a UK coin within a year of passing!

The Stephen Hawking 50p was so popular that it sold out of ALL precious metal specifications on launch day — this, in turn, then drove a high demand for the BU issue.

With this latest UK science coin release, now’s the time to call your friends and share the news, as this new £2 really must not be missed!
