2012 Great British Coins

This is an absolutely must-have collection for coin enthusiasts everywhere and would make a very British gift for friends and family celebrating in 2012.

The eight definitive coins, familiar in everyday use today, capture the history of Britain in their own unique way. The £2 coin, introduced in 1997 and the first bi-colour coin for the UK, celebrates the march of technology from the Iron Age to the Internet and was designed by Bruce Rushin who won a public competition to find a suitable reverse design. The lower denominations from the 50p to the 1p unite to reveal the Royal Arms seen in its entirety on the £1 coin and were designed by Matthew Dent who won the public competition to find designs to replace those created for the first decimal coins of 1971.

Emigration gift

Rated 5 out of 5

I've only had my laptop just over 18 months and am still nervous of doing new things. Thank you very much for making you website so easy to browse and order from. Also thank you for the speed of delivery, it was a last minute idea of a gift for my 2 grandchildren, aged 7 and 3, that I will see for the last time on the 25th July, before they emigrate to New Zealand, with their parents, my only son and his wife.

Great Christening Gift

Rated 5 out of 5

I purchase these coin sets as Christening gifts based on the year of birth & each time I do, I get a call from the parents to say how much they like them & what a great idea they are.
