Dame Vera Lynn is a famous celebrity from Word War II where her timeless renditions of classic songs such as “We’ll Meet Again” kept the spirits up and boosted the morale of the British troops fighting the war. The reverse design of this £2 UK coin features a beautifully detailed portrait of Dame Vera as she appeared during the height of her fame.

A coin for the original forces sweetheart! Dame Vera Lynn raised spirits during the turbulent times of WW2 and this £2 coin has been designed to celebrate her national treasure status.

Alexander Graham Bell is famous for being the inventor of the telephone in 1876. It would have been unimaginable during his lifetime that one day millions of people would be carrying a telephone everywhere they go!

Why is it called a telephone dial?

Early telephones used to have a rotary dial (which is why we say “dial their number”) that was later replaced by a push-button design. It was much quicker since you didn’t have to want for the dial to return to zero after each number.

The coin reverse design by Henry Gray depicts a push-button telephone along with the words PIONEER OF THE TELEPHONE inscribed on the buttons.

Are there Annual Coin Set Error Coins?

If you received your 2022 Annual Coin Set already, make sure that you have the correct coins against the right descriptions.

Some UK Coin buyers have reported errors in the packaging as per this example where the Vera Lynn 50p is in the place of the Alexander Graham bell coin.

If you have an error you can either decide to keep it or ask The Royal mint to send you a replacement.

It’s unlikely that these will have additional value since it’s a mistake in packaging process rather than an error in the minting of the coin.
