Great Britain to release new circulating designs for 2008

Great Britain has released the new designs for circulating coins, which will be released during the summer of 2008.

It is a full shield on the 1 pound coin, and portions of the shield on the lower denominations, so that they form a full shield. They are the same size and shape as the current coins.

Graphically, they are neet, pratically, I think it is silly, and that comes from a collector of British Coinage since 1974!

You can see the designs and story at the BBC.

The artist will receive over $60,000 for his efforts.

    After the loss of Britannia, I was pleasantly very surprised to see the historical focus of the coins. I must say that I really like them. Thanks for the post!
