Extremely limited: NEW John Logie Baird UK Silver Piedfort 50p


Extremely limited: NEW John Logie Baird UK Silver Piedfort 50p

To mark the 75th anniversary of John Logie Baird’s passing and celebrate his legacy, The Royal Mint has authorised for a BRAND NEW UK 50p to be issued, as part of the hugely popular Innovation in Science series.

But there’s one coin in the range that completely steals the show…

John Logie Baird Silver Piedfort 50p

Struck from .925 silver to an immaculate proof finish this NEW UK 50p coin depicts a television mast with a significant milestone in Baird’s life and work noted at each signal.   

Visually Piedforts are a real talking point. They are struck on superior double-thickness blanks and finished to the very highest proof quality. Double the thickness means they are double the weight of the Silver Proof issue and contain double the amount of silver.

1,900 edition limit – THIRD consecutive SELL-OUT pending

When the first Innovation in Science coin was released – the Stephen Hawking 50p – the entire edition limit of 2,500 SOLD OUT in record time – just a matter of hours. Likewise, the second coin in the series also followed suit and quickly SOLD OUT.

That’s why we’re certain that the tiny 1,900 edition limit of this NEW coin will not be available for long, and we’ll see the THIRD consecutive sell-out in the Innovation in Science series.
