2022 British Broadcasting Corporation Fifty Pence Piedfort Silver Proof Coin

UK22BBPF 2022 BBC 100th Anniversary Fifty Pence Piedfort Silver Proof Coin Boxed
Piedfort silver 50 Pence coin from The Royal Mint, celebrating the centenary of the British Broadcasting Corporation, better known as the BBC. The UK’s national broadcaster is also the world’s oldest, founded in 1922 with the directive to ‘inform, educate and entertain’. Today, the BBC offers a portfolio of television and radio networks to Brits as well as online programming and the BBC World Service which broadcasts in 42 different languages. It’s an institution we’re pretty proud of, especially as it approaches its 100th birthday on 18 October 2022. The reverse or ‘tails’ side of these coins shows a new design by artist Henry Grey which emphasises the global role of the BBC, taking its inspiration from the BBC News title cards. The words ‘1922-2022 100 YEARS OF OUR BBC INFORM EDUCATE ENTERTAIN’ encircle Grey’s globe, emitted from a radio tower at the top left of the design. This is paired with a portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark, making these BBC 50ps among the last UK coins to feature the image of Her Majesty the Queen. Precious metal 50ps are the same size as their circulating counterparts (measuring 27.30 millimetres in diameter) but boast a high-shine, finely detailed, proof finish, achieved with multiple strikes of hand-prepared dies. This piedfort edition is minted in exactly 16.00 grams of .925 sterling silver and comes from a limited edition presentation of 1,100 pieces. When you buy a piedfort silver proof BBC 50p you’ll receive a new coin in its original presentation packaging from The Royal Mint. An information booklet and a numbered certificate of authenticity are enclosed, identifying your commemorative coin as the genuine article, produced by the UK’s national mint.
