On New Year's Eve 1999, people of all beliefs and backgrounds gathered together in anticipation, ready to celebrate a once in a lifetime event - the dawn of a new millennium. London was the setting for some of the most spectacular celebrations the United Kingdom has ever seen. Big Ben chimed, champagne corks popped and the party began in earnest. How did you celebrate? Take yourself back to that joyous night when the world celebrated as one, heralding the next thousand years of history. Maybe the millennium holds particular memories for you; perhaps you were one of the many who proposed or even got married at such a momentous time? Remember the magical moments with this beautiful gold coin featuring a clock design by Jeffrey Matthews.
