The centrepiece of your set is the most elegant £5 crown paying tribute to the life and legacy of Queen Anne, 300 years after her death. It was designed by Mark Richards FRBS, creator of the £5 crown struck for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
A £2 coin marks the outbreak of the First World War – the first coin in a five-year series that will take us on a journey from outbreak to Armistice. It features the image of Lord Kitchener in his now iconic ‘Your country needs you!’ pose.
A second £2 coin celebrates the 500th anniversary of Trinity House, an organisation that has tirelessly served Britain’s mariners since the time of Henry VIII.
Two £1 coins complete a series begun in 2013. They bear beautiful floral emblems – the flax and shamrock for Northern Ireland and the bluebell and thistle for Scotland.
The official Glasgow 2014 50p has a dynamic design of a cyclist and athlete above the Saltire of Scotland, completing the commemorative editions.
The definitive coins from the 1p to the 50p bear a design that makes up the Royal Arms, created by Matthew Dent in 2008. His full design appears on the £1 coin. The £2 coin celebrating technology, designed by Bruce Rushin in 1997, is the final coin in this 2014 set.
Your coins are struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard and presented in a stand up case for you to gift or display them.
The booklet tells the ‘behind the scenes’ story of the coins.
