Supporting the centuries-old tradition of giving zodiac coins at the Lunar New Year
The Royal Mint has been at the heart of British coinage for well over 1,000 years creating coins with compelling designs that pinpoint a moment in time. The range of coins for 2011 – including a commemorative £5 coin, two £2 coins and a 50p coin as well as two special £1 coins celebrating our capital cities - take their place in that long and distinguished line.
Produced to the highest quality by Royal Mint craftsmen, such collections are favourites of coin collectors year on year. Indeed, coin collecting has held man in its thrall since the beginning of coinage.
Discover the joy of coins yourself with a coin or coin set from our 2011 range...
