This set contains five commemorative coins alongside circulating coins of the year, united to capture some of 2018’s key moments and anniversaries. It includes the new 12-sided £1 coin, first issued in 2017, and the 2018 definitive circulating coins. The 1p to the 50p coins feature Matthew Dent’s shield of the Royal Arms ‘picture-puzzle’ design, while the £2 coin features Antony Dufort’s Britannia.

All 13 coins have been struck in 925 sterling silver to Proof standard, highlighting every detail of the designs. This set is presented in a black case to display the coins.

A £5 coin marks His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge’s fifth birthday.

A £2 coin commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force.

A £2 coin pays tribute to Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, first published 200 years ago.

The Armistice of 1918, the first step towards ending the horrors of the First World War, is marked by a £2 coin.

A 50p coin celebrates 100 years since the passing of the Representation of the People Act 1918, hailed as a landmark event for democracy.

“It’s really great to see a Representation of the People Act 1918 50p amongst the new coin designs for 2018. I wish it were possible for all of us to carry one in our pockets to carry forward that message of equality first started by the Act 100 years ago, reminding us that we still have work to do.”

Helen Antrobus of the People’s History Museum, Manchester
