Whilst exact designs are still locked in the ‘Chamber of Secrets‘, the latest proclamation has revealed that we can expect the following to feature in the collection:
- A depiction of Harry Potter with the inscription, ‘Harry Potter 25 Years of Magic’

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was first published by Bloomsbury Children’s Books in 1997, and has since gone on to be one of the world’s most popular books of all time.

100th Anniversary of the BBC 50p
The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) was formed on 18 October 1922 by a group of leading wireless manufacturers including Guglielmo Marconi.
Since establishment, the BBC has been shaped by some of the UK’s biggest innovators, from Marconi, to John Logie Baird. Baird used BBC frequencies to broadcast some of his first experimental television broadcasts from studios near Covent Garden in London.
The BBC is highly regarded for its award-winning creative output, trusted and impartial news services and innovative use of technology.
To commemorate the centenary of the BBC, The Royal Mint have confirmed that they will be issuing a brand new 50p in 2022, which has definitely got Change Checker excited!
As of the Royal Proclamation, on 16th December 2021, the design is said to feature a globe with transmitter waves accompanied by the inscription “1922-2022 100 YEARS OF OUR BBC INFORM EDUCATE ENTERTAIN”.

- Kanga and Roo
These are some of the most famous characters from the story and we’re sure collectors will be racing to get their hands on these coins as soon as they’re issued!
