In 1901, radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi made the first successful transatlantic wireless transmission. And to celebrate the 100th Anniversary in 2001, The Royal Mint issued a special commemorative Silver Proof £2 coin.

Here’s why the UK 2001 Marconi Silver Proof £2 coin is a CPM Prestige recommendation…

  • Celebrating 100th anniversary of the first ever transatlantic wireless transmission
  • Crafted from Sterling Silver to pristine Proof finish perfectly capturing essence of Guglielmo Marconi’s triumph

Wireless waves grace both the center and outer border, while a spark of electricity linking the date's zeros forms a radiating series of three dots, symbolising the Morse code letter S, representing the successful 1901 transmission.

The edge of the coin proudly declares Marconi's historic feat with the inscription: "WIRELESS BRIDGES THE ATLANTIC MARCONI 1901."
