About This Design 

2001 saw the centenary of Guglielmo Marconi’s first wireless transmission across the Atlantic. It was a feat that had been thought impossible but, in December 1901, the letter ‘S’ in Morse Code – three dots – was successfully transmitted from Poldhu in Cornwall to St John’s, Newfoundland. To commemorate Marconi’s historic achievement – an achievement that was to revolutionise global communication and bring tremendous benefits to mankind – The Royal Mint produced a special £2 coin. Taking radio waves as its theme, the design by Robert Evans symbolises Marconi’s impact on twentieth-century communication. Radio waves decorate both the centre and outer border while a spark of electricity links the zeros of the date and represents the generation of the signal. The design is completed with the edge inscription ‘…WIRELESS BRIDGES THE ATLANTIC… MARCONI 1901’.
