Coinage Envy

New Pretty Coins
From The Royal Mint’s website:

Your Change is Changing!

The coinage of the United Kingdom is changing. Familiar designs that have served us well for almost 40 years will be replaced by a new set of designs, contemporary in treatment yet grounded in the traditions of the coinage. Now, in a new age, the time has come to rejuvenate the coinage by seeking designs that treat traditional symbols in an innovative and modern way. The series that has been chosen brings new life to the coinage and, like the decimal designs 40 years ago, draws inspiration from the very fabric of British history.

The New Designs Revealed

The Royal Mint is delighted to reveal to you the new designs that will appear on our coins. Individually, the coins focus on details of the shield of the Royal arms and when placed together they reveal the complete shield. View the new coin designs now.

Never thought I’d develop an inferiority complex about my nickels. Thanks a lot, Joe Fitzgerald!
