An historic year for the Annual Sets

New Year, New Coins

This set contains 2017's five commemorative coins combined with the circulating coins of the year. The 2017 Annual Sets are the first to include the new 12-sided UK £1 coin before it enters circulation in March 2017.

The definitive circulating coins of 2017, from the 1p to the 50p, feature Matthew Dent';s shield of the Royal Arms 'picture-puzzle' design, while the £2 coin features Britannia, designed by Antony Dufort. Each definitive coin is struck in its circulating alloy but finished to Proof standard, highlighting every detail of the design.

The set is completed by The Royal Mint Medal, designed by Royal Mint coin designer Kerry Davies. Taking the form of an ingot, the medal celebrates the circulating coinage of the UK.

About the set

A £5 coin marks the 1000th anniversary of the coronation of King Canute, the Viking conqueror hailed the first ‘king of all England’.

A century of royal service is commemorated by a £5 coin marking the 100th anniversary of the creation of the House of Windsor.

The 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen, one of the best-loved English novelists, is marked with a £2 coin. Coin Design Inspired by Jane Austen Portrait © National Portrait Gallery, London.

A £2 coin pays tribute to the aviators of the First World War and their sacrifices in the race for supremacy of the skies. The Royal Mint continues to work with Imperial War Museums as part of our programme of commemoration of the First World War.

The legacy of Sir Isaac Newton, genius of the Scientific Revolution and one of the most famous men ever to perform the role of Master of the Mint, is remembered with a 50p coin.
