I think we can all agree that 2021 was a fantastic year for collectors. But what does 2022 have in store?
Well, the year has already started with a bang as we’ve seen both the UK 2022 Annual Coins be released on January 4th, followed by the eagerly awaited Platinum Jubilee 50p and £5 coins 2 days later, celebrating 70 years of Her Majesty’s reign.
And to say they were well received by collectors was an understatement. In fact, we’ve already seen sell-outs of some of our initial stock. Here’s a reminder of the designs and how to get your hands on them for those who are late to the party:

We’ve taken a look at what else we can expect over the coming months to give collectors a sneak peak in preparation for the very best releases in 2022. So here are a few of our top picks that we’re excited about here at Collectology HQ…
A new 50p marking 100 years of the BBC!
From covering breaking news stories, Children in Need and sporting events, to Strictly Come Dancing, period dramas, and even the Queen’s Christmas Speech, I think we can agree that the BBC is a favourite across the nation and a part of many of our lives.
And can you believe the BBC marks its 100th birthday in 2022? In celebration, The Royal Mint will be releasing a special 50p coin to mark this milestone moment.
It’s soon time to revisit the Hundred Acre Wood!
I hope you’ve been building up that Winnie the Pooh collection, because it has also been announced that the Royal Mint will be returning to the Hundred Acre Wood in 2022 with the final part in the Winnie the Pooh coin series.
Three new 50p coins will be released and this time Kanga and Roo, and Eyeore will be joining Winnie the Pooh and friends on our UK coins.
The designs for all three coins are currently top secret, but given the popularity of the previous 6 coins, here at Collectology we’re eagerly anticipating the big reveal.
The 50th Anniversary of Pride
To mark the 50th anniversary since the first Pride event in 1972, a very special design will be released in commemoration this year on none other than the nation’s favourite coin – the 50p.
Excitingly, elements of the pride flag will feature on the reverse alongside the inscription “PRIDE PROTEST VISIBILITY UNITY EQUALITY”.
Commemorating the life of Alan Turing
Famous for cracking the German WWII Enigma machine, and laying the foundations for the early computers, mastermind Alan Turing will be featuring on a UK 50p next year!
Commemorating the achievements throughout his life, the reverse will feature a depiction of Turing against a background of letters. This is another top secret design, so keep your eyes peeled for its reveal this year.
Already with a few of my handpicked top releases coming in 2022, it’s quite clear we’re in for another great year for collectors.
So be sure to keep your eyes peeled on our socials and email throughout the year to be one of the first to know when your favourite releases are announced – many in Collectology exclusive presentations of course!
