The artist Henry Gray has crafted a reverse design that pays tribute to the BBC's global reach and popularity. Housed in informative packaging that details the BBC's history and enduring influence on the world of broadcasting.
Struck in 925 sterling silver and finished to Proof standard. Produced in collaboration with the BBC. The packaging for the BBC 100th anniversary coin had been printed prior to the sad passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In the interest of sustainability, we have chosen not to re-print the enclosed booklet to minimise any potential environmental impact.In support of His Majesty the King's ambition for a sustainable transition we will continue to offer 2022 coins struck with Her Late Majesty's effigy. The 100 years of the BBC is the first to be released by The Royal Mint since the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth and will continue to bear her effigy on the obverse (heads) side of the coin. This ensures minimal environmental impact as the designs, tools and packaging for these products have already been produced.
