If 2020 has taught anything it’s that diversity is here and it’s here to stay. But recognizing diversity isn’t really a new concept. People of all creeds, colors and ethnicities have made valuable contributions to world history. To celebrate Great Britain’s long history of diversity, The Royal Mint has struck a unique seven-sided coin that makes no bones about how important diversity is to the nation and its people.
Diversity Built Britain
Struck in eight grams of 92.5% Sterling silver, this 50-Pence legal tender coin features a bold inscription that reads “DIVERSITY BUILT BRITAIN” within a background of interconnected triangles. Designed by Dominique Evans, the lines that make up the triangles are symbolic of a network, with each part just as important as the next in uniting the whole composition — just as human society is interconnected. It’s a fitting motif as throughout the 1,100 years that British coins have served as a narrative of the nation’s history, the contribution of ethnic minority communities has been an important ingredient to that story.
Each 2020 Great Britain Eight-Gram Silver British Diversity Proof available here has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC), a distinction that means these perfectly-graded proofs have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that these proofs are First Releases (FR) coins, a designation that means they were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of their release. Each will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a Great Britain label. These coins will also be accompanied by their original government packaging that consists of a custom presentation case and a mint-issued Certificate of Authenticity.
