New Year, New Coins

An historic year for the Annual Sets

This set includes the five coins commemorating the key anniversaries of 2017. They are united with the eight circulating coins of the year, struck in their circulating alloys but finished to Proof standard. The 2017 Annual Sets are the first to include the new 12-sided £1 coin, available here before it enters circulation in March 2017.

The definitive circulating coins, from the 1p to the 50p, feature Matthew Dent’s shield of the Royal Arms ‘picture-puzzle’ design, while the £2 coin features Antony Dufort’s Britannia.

This set is completed by the limited edition Premium Medal by Royal Mint coin designer Thomas T. Docherty. It focuses on the subject of security, a key area of expertise for The Royal Mint with the introduction of the new 12-sided £1 coin. The set is presented in a wooden case to display your collection.

About the set

A £5 coin marks the 1000th anniversary of the coronation of King Canute, the Viking conqueror hailed the first ‘king of all England’.

A century of royal service is commemorated by a £5 coin marking the 100th anniversary of the creation of the House of Windsor.

The 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen, one of the best-loved English novelists, is marked with a £2 coin.

A £2 coin pays tribute to the aviators of the First World War and their sacrifices in the race for supremacy of the skies. The Royal Mint continues to work with Imperial War Museums as part of our programme of commemoration of the First World War.

The legacy of Sir Isaac Newton, genius of the Scientific Revolution and one of the most famous men ever to perform the role of Master of the Mint, is remembered with a 50p coin.

Coin Design Inspired by Jane Austen Portrait © National Portrait Gallery, London.

A superb set which I can only describe in one word, stunning. The presentation box is also something to be desired, which looks to me to be Mahogany. Please correct me if I am wrong.
