I've always maintained that we produce some of the most colourful, interesting and innovative currency designs in the world. The latest £20 note is a thing of beauty and this new set of coins is fantastic. In case you don't know, the Royal Mint held a nationwide competition to design the new coins and it was won by a 25 year old graduate called Matthew Dent. When arranged properly, his coins create the Royal Coat of Arms with the £1 coin displaying the full arms. Isn't that great?
I wonder what King Charles III's portrait will look like? Assuming Queenie ever abdicates that is. Who knows? She may outlive him. Her mum got to be over 100 after all.
