Coins of the year

The definitive coins of 2011

This is an absolutely must-have collection for coin enthusiasts everywhere and would make a very British gift for friends and family celebrating in 2011.

The eight definitive coins, familiar in everyday use today, capture the history of Britain in their own unique way.

About the Coins

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.
