FOOTBALL’S GREATEST CUP COMPETITION

The FA Cup is one of the sport’s oldest knockout competitions and 2022 marks the 150th anniversary of the first FA Cup Final.

For the first time, the competition is being celebrated on a UK coin.

Watched by millions across the globe each year, The FA Cup Final is one of the highlights of the sporting calendar. This is not surprising, given the moments of footballing magic and sporting drama that the competition has provided to fans over the last 150 years – there’s simply no other knockout event quite like it.

The Royal Mint’s Director of Commemorative Coin Clare Maclennan said:

The Emirates FA Cup is an iconic footballing competition that has enabled clubs across the country to dream of lifting the coveted trophy for 150 years. In what is an extra special season for everyone involved in the game, we are thrilled to be working with The FA and celebrating the 150th anniversary of the much-loved competition with a commemorative £2 coin. Designed with the trophy at its heart, it is fitting that that the coin will be used for the coin toss during Final at Wembley in May. 

The FA’s Head of Player Status and Competitions, David Newton, said:

The parallels between The Royal Mint’s traditional craftsmanship and innovations, and the Emirates FA Cup’s rich history and evolution over the years mean that this special coin is an incredibly fitting celebration of the competition’s 150th anniversary season. We are delighted that it will be used for the Final’s coin toss and fans across the country now have the chance to take home their very own piece of silverware to savour for years to come.

£2 Coin Design

2022 FA Cup Coins

Designed by artists Matt Dent and Christian Davies, the coveted silverware appears in miniature on the £2 coin, combining The Royal Mint’s craftsmanship and innovation to achieve accurate detail.

The design is etched with a celebratory ribbon alongside the words ‘celebrating 150 years of The FA Cup’.

On the highly secure milled edge of £2 coin is the inscription ‘football’s greatest cup competition’, a further nod to the landmark celebration of football’s longest-running knockout competition.
