Nice simple set of coins
Very nicely presented set, the current UK coins in my opinion are a clever blend of contemporary and traditional design.
I'm from Canada. I ordered this set because I'm a bit of an anglophile and I thought it would be interesting to have. I cannot believe how beautiful this set is for the price! This annual set contains 8 coins, a book describing the symbolism and history of the designs, and is presented in a high quality slip cover. I'm shocked at what you get here. In Canada, our annual sets come in what amounts to a sandwich baggie with a cheap piece of card containing no description or history, no book or anything. All for the same price. I'm a bit jealous that collectors in the UK have such easy access to such beautiful coins on a regular basis! I know to a Briton these coins are probably boring as you can just scoop a handful out of your pocket daily, but to someone seeing them with fresh eyes I must say the design of these coins is timeless and really beautiful in their symbolism, simplicity, and unique shapes and colours. I wish our Canadian coins were as interesting as yours! I'll be buying more Royal Mint products in the future. I'm impressed! And to think, this isn't even the top of the line product sold by the mint. I can't imagine how nice the more expensive products are. Really fantastic value for the money and definitely worth the wait for them to be shipped from England. I'm so happy to add these to my collection and they look fantastic in my display.
