Oh, I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside

Four colour-printed coins celebrate Britain’s most iconic seaside towns

The great British seaside: fish and chips, penny slots, and don’t forget your bucket and spade. The daily grind is left far behind, for a little while at least. Four coins celebrate some of our most iconic coastal resorts. By turns traditional, quirky and kitsch, each has its own unique character, evoking fond memories of day trips and family holidays.

Made popular by the Victorians, Blackpool with its famous tower is still a firm favourite today. And a trip to Brighton isn’t complete without trying to snag a prize on the pier. Colourful huts dot the shoreline at Southwold, the perfect base for day at the beach, while Tenby with its picturesque harbour is very much the jewel in Pembrokeshire’s crown.
