#3

#4

I doesn't look like real money:?
#7
absolute pants it looks duff
#8
I figured this as being a day late too :?
#9
Horrible, horrible, horrible...just HORRIBLE!!
#10
Looks like some sort of England Football team commemorative coin collection.
#11
I think it looks great :? don't know what everyone is complaining about. Think the idea behind it, with each coin carrying a part of the shield of the royal arms and the £1 having it in it's entirety is a nice idea.

I don't really mind the design but it's a shame we will lose the new design on the £1 coin we get each year.

And what about the £2 coin? Or don't they do them anymore? (I use plastic100%, does it show :lol:)

It looks nice all laid out like that, but think of them as individual coins. Not so good.
#14
As long as we don't switch to the Euro then it's fine by me, though I do really like the new design. I hate using the Euro, it's impossible to tell what denomination the coins are without having a good look at them, very impractical.

Where's the £2 coin? :?

As long as it can be spent, who cares what it looks like!

The £2 coin isn't changing.
#19
It seems a bit stupid not changing the £2, will look a bit out of place.
#20
i quite like it
#21
Do they look so good now? :thinking:

They look awful.. I feel the same way about the new notes too..
#23
I heard its got a Euro symbol on the other side.
#24
I suppose it might have made a bit of sense if they actually added up to a pound, but as it is, it's a bit of a 'Blue Peter competition winner' to me.

They do not.:x
#26
At the end of the day.. coins are coins. They are worth what they are worth. I dont hang mine up on the wall as artwork
#27
It should have the head of Lech Kaczyński on it.

It seems that he has an identical twin, so that might be a problem:whistling:

think you may find they must have the queens head on them :roll:

Just imagine the cost involved in all this. Still, the mint can afford it, if they run a bit low on cash they can always make some more :lol:
#31
I quite like the look of them. Lets face it, most of them are due a face lift - some of them have hardly been changed in almost 40 years - still plenty say "NEW PENNY" on them :lol:

Why will it be so expensive? They don't need to retool, vending/counting machines will still work - it's just a different die-stamp, there must be a good twenty designs already for the pound coin...

Well I heard they couldn't change it to 'nearly new penny' as ebay objected :lol:

Hey!
1) It's not ENGLISH curency ;-)
2) It is 'coinage';-)
3) It is BRITISH coinage you know, England, N. Ireland, Scotland & Wales;-)
4) Is it true or a left over April 1st? :whistling:
#34
Given our current record of f****** up major designs, it probably could have been worse.

Good effort! :thumbsup:

Compared to the Olympic Logo the coins are fine.
#37
oh my god, the olympic design is just an appauling 1980's throw back, lol
#38
At least the two pence coin will no longer have a german motto!!

We've got different notes which the Scottish Banks print but the coins are the same.
