2001 Wireless Bridges the Atlantic Marconi £2 Piedfort Silver Proof

2001 Wireless Bridges the Atlantic Marconi £2 Piedfort Silver Proof Boxed
In 1901, radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi made the first successful transatlantic wireless transmission. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of this event, The Royal Mint released this double-weight silver proof Two Pound coin. On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley’s regal portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. On the reverse, a design by Robert Evans shows a representation of radio waves spreading across the surface of the coin. The morse code for ’S’ has been incorporated into the design - this was the original signal that was sent from Cornwall to Newfoundland in 1901. The side inscription honours his achievement, reading ‘··· WIRELESS BRIDGES THE ATLANTIC ··· MARCONI 1901’. This limited edition piedfort coin is one of a 25,000 minted and is struck in 24.00 grams of .925 sterling silver with a gold plated outer ring. You’ll receive your silver proof piedfort Marconi £2 coin in its original packaging from The Royal Mint alongside its certificate of authenticity.
