2022 Royal Mint Annual Sets


Recommended Posts

Platinum Jubilee and gave you a glimpse into our specially created coin collection for the occasion.

Now, we’re delighted to announce that this UK 50p coin and a commemorative UK £5 coin, featuring a reverse design by the design agency Osborne Ross and the experienced coinage artist John Bergdahl respectively, will both be included in our 2022 Annual Sets. 

The UK 50p and UK £5 coins presented in the Annual Sets will notably feature Jody Clark’s definitive coinage portrait of The Queen, which does not appear on the individual releases in our Platinum Jubilee collection. The 2022 Annual Sets will be available to purchase on 4 January 2022. Find out more about the sets here.

The Platinum Jubilee collection goes on general sale on 6 January 2022, when editions of the Platinum Jubilee UK 50p and UK £5 coins will be available to purchase individually. We will also be releasing a number of larger coins bearing a beautifully decorative, regal design by the coinage artist John Bergdahl. A Platinum Jubilee portrait of The Queen created for this momentous occasion will also appear on the 2022 UK coins in the collection, which is once again the work of John Bergdahl. 

If you’re visiting The Royal Mint Experience in the New Year, from 4 January 2022, you will have the opportunity to strike your own Platinum Jubilee UK 50p coin. You can find out about the latest events at The Royal Mint Experience and book your tickets here. 

Sign up to be amongst the first to hear more about our Platinum Jubilee collection and check back every day to follow our countdown that reveals a new fact about The Queen’s remarkable life and reign each day.

I like the Royal Arms reverse on the £5 coin.  Strong hints of the Merlen design on William IV half crowns, which is a very good thing in my book.

I really hope the RM releases that design in Silver, Gold and Platinum bullion versions, as well as the proofs.

Just a shame most of these coins will never be circulated, the 70 jubilee 50p could be circulated, I hope Queen Elizabeth reigns for a few more years if she makes it to around September 20th 2024 she will be the longest serving monarch in history.

Definitely the other way round.  These coins in the annual sets will have the normal Jody Clark obverse portrait of The Queen.  The special commemorative coins will get the new obverse with The Queen on horseback.

So which ones will be more sought after?   It's all confusing

That's how I think it is.

I assume the sets will be reasonably high mintage?

The £5 is a knock out, well done RM. I think the 70 50p is ok, not sure yet.

personally ive never been a fan of the queen on horseback, hopefully they do a nice job of it. But as you point out @GoldDiggerDave the £5 will be popular with sov collectors, particularly the one with the JC portrait rather than the commemorative crown version I think 

the gold annual sets last year had a mintage of 90 from memory, I think it’ll be about the same this year.

Never bought or researched any of these annual sets, so pardon my thick/probably obvious question, but

Will this £5 shown be available in gold ??

looks cracking 

Almost certainly @Paul. They normally do a low mintage gold set and then they’ll probably also release it separately but with a different obv it seems.

they did something similar last year on the decimal day 50p, the only way to get one with the Machin portrait was to buy the set, the general release one had the JC portrait

Thank you Mike - more debt to look forward to lol

Ignore this, saw after posting i was viewing the 2021 range. Still i hope they get this years correct! 

Has anyone noticed they have already screwed up on the premium proof "base pd"?¬†ūü§£

  • Please note: Due to an error, the base pad within the box contains 13 spaces instead of 14. A new base pad containing 14 will be available in approximately 16 weeks and will be sent out in due course. We know how special the Annual Sets are, so rather than delay your order we are sending the set with 13 coins inside - and an additional box for the medal. This will ensure the coins and the medal are kept in pristine condition until the new base pad arrives.

The £5 looks superb.  With the JC head on the obverse, it seems that it will only be available in Annual Sets.  And then two days later, I think individual coins will be released (with the Queen on horseback on the obverse side).  So,the question is which to go for?  Or which will be more desirable?  If I had unlimited funds, I am sure I would go for both.  If the Royal Mint does not reveal the Queen on horseback portrait before the Annual Set release (on the 4th January) it will be impossible to make an informed choice.
