I’m sure you’re just as pleased as I am to hear which themes we can expect for these coins, so read on to find out more…
150 Years of the FA Cup £2
According to the latest Royal Proclamation, a £2 coin is set to be issued in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the FA Cup.
Whilst the design remains top secret, the proclamation suggests we can expect to see the inscription “CELEBRATING 150 YEARS OF THE FA CUP” and in incuse letters an inscription that reads, “FOOTBALL’S GREATEST CUP COMPETITION”.
We can’t wait to see the design of this brand new £2 coin!
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”.
50th Anniversary of Pride 50p
Pride is an annual global event which is celebrated every June. From parades and concerts, to workshops and exhibitions, the events of Pride month enable LGBTQ+ people and allies to celebrate their genders and sexualities, discuss LGBTQ+ history, and advocate for further change.
Since the start of the modern LGBTQ+ liberation movement in the 1970s, hundreds of independent Pride events have sprung up in cities worldwide, each distinctly local and generally tied in some way to the foundational Stonewall Riots in June.
The increased visibility and activism of LGBT individuals back in the 1970s helped the Pride movement make progress on multiple fronts.
In 2022, to celebrate over 50 years of Pride, the latest royal proclamation has confirmed a brand new 50p is set to be issued, with a design depicting elements of the Pride flag, accompanied with the inscription, “PRIDE PROTEST VISIBILITY UNITY EQUALITY”.
50p Commemorating Life of Alan Turing
Alan Turing was most famously known for accelerating Allied efforts to read German Naval messages enciphered with the Enigma machine.
His work is said to have been key to shortening World War Two and saving millions of lives.
In addition to his work during World War Two, Turing played a pivotal role in the development of early computers, first at the National Physical Laboratory and later at the University of Manchester.
In 2013, he was given a posthumous royal pardon for his 1952 conviction for gross indecency.
To commemorate his life and achievements, a brand new 50p is set to be issued, depicting a cogwheel accompanied by the inscription “ALAN TURING” set against a background of letters.
2022 Winnie the Pooh 50ps
In 2020, The Royal Mint confirmed a brand new 9-coin series of 50ps celebrating 95 years of fun-filled adventure, each featuring a different inhabitant of Hundred Acre Wood.
The Winnie the Pooh 50p series continues in 2022, with the final three coins in the series being confirmed in the latest Royal Proclamation.
We can expect the final coins to depict designs of the following characters from A. A. Milne’s classic tale:
- Winnie the Pooh and Friends
- 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!

2022 marks 120 years since Peter Rabbit’s very first appearance and to commemorate the anniversary, The Royal Mint will issue a brand new £5 coin.
