New ‘Diversity Built Britain’ coin unveiled


It is great that the campaign has influenced the government and the Royal Mint to recognise the Black and Minority Ethnic contribution to Britain. I was inspired to be involved in the ‘We Too Built Britain’ as result of the successful 100 Great Black Britons Campaign which Mary Seacole was voted Greatest Black Briton in 2004.

I hope this will be the start for the Royal Mint to produce future coins reflecting some of the people featured 100 Great Black Britons book as part of our 2020 campaign.
