The five coins in this set capture some of 2018’s memorable moments and anniversaries. The collection is completed by the limited edition Royal Mint Medal, created by Royal Mint coin designer Kerry Davies. Taking the form of an ingot, the medal celebrates the circulating coinage of the UK.

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.”
