Team GB carry the hopes of much of the British Isles on their shoulders as they head to Tokyo to compete in the Summer Olympic Games; a 50p coin celebrates their dedication to sporting excellence. Also in 2020, mystery fans around the world will be marking 100 years since the publication of Agatha Christie's first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. A £2 coin commemorates the Queen of Crime.
An inspirational £2 coin honours the faith-driven men and women who took part in the Mayflower sailing 400 years ago. For many citizens of the United States, it is a journey that sits at the ideological foundations of their country although, of course, America would not declare its independence for another 150 years, during the reign of George III. Some historians have been unkind to the monarch but he was a deeply patriotic and intellectual man, honoured this year with a £5 coin.
Finally, the summer of 2020 sees the world celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE-Day, when Allied forces of the Second World War succeeded in defeating the Nazi threat.
