• Official UK Silver Proof double thickness 50p honouring John Logie Baird 75 years after his death
• The third Silver 50p launched in the “Innovation in Science” series following Stephen Hawking and Rosalind Franklin
• The Hawking Piedfort 50p sold out 2,500 coins within hours of launch and Franklin also sold out quickly
• This new coin is limited to just 1,900 in limited edition packaging
Why I recommend the UK 2021 John Logie Baird Silver Proof Piedfort 50p Coin…
This brand new double-thickness UK 50p has been issued to mark the life and remarkable achievements of John Logie Baird – one of the world’s most famous inventors.
It’s an exceptional looking coin and a fitting tribute, with a nod to his most famous invention, the television, really well executed. But the main reason for my excitement is what has happened for the last 2 years. You see this is the third UK coin in the “Innovation in Science” series. The first, a Stephen Hawking Silver Proof Piedfort 50p sold out 2,500 coins within a couple of hours of launch and then last year’s, featuring Rosalind Franklin followed suit and sold out again.
This new John Logie Baird Piedfort 50p has been limited to just 1,900 in limited edition packaging. Surely another sell-out is inevitable.
