JUST 500 collectors can own the John Logie Baird DateStamp™ Issue

John Logie Baird is undoubtedly one of the most significant inventors of the 20th century. His work to develop the first functioning television revolutionised society.

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.

JUST 500 available worldwide – sell-out likely

Thousands of the new Brilliant Uncirculated John Logie Baird 50p Coins will be struck, however only 500 will be available in this exclusive DateStamp™ Issue – an extremely limited way to own this new 50p coin.

DateStamp™ issues are always incredibly popular with collectors and have a strong sell-out history. In fact, previous 50p issues – such as the Rosalind Franklin 50p – have completely SOLD OUT within days! All signs suggest this issue is likely to sell-out just as quickly.

Postmarked with the 75th anniversary date of Baird’s death

Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the exact date of the 75th anniversary of John Logie Baird’s death – 14th June 2021.   

What’s more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.

Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these issues can ever be produced. A sell-out is expected, so act now to ensure you add this issue to your collection.
