An Iconic Piece of British Design
260 years after its founding by the pioneering Josiah Wedgwood, the company that bears his name is still associated with highest levels of craftsmanship. This is fitting for a company that transformed the production and marketing of pottery and changed the course of British society.
Now, Wedgwood and The Royal Mint have joined forces to commemorate the prestigious history and achievements of this pioneering British brand on a UK coin for the first time. With a design that encompasses the heritage, craftsmanship and royal connection that both Wedgwood and The Royal Mint are internationally known for, the coin is a strikingly modern celebration of the past 260 years.
