The Menai Strait is a narrow stretch of deep, tidal water about 23 km long, which separates the island of Anglesey from the Welsh mainland.
In 2004, the Royal Mint started a new series of one pound coins. Created by Edwina Ellis, each features a prominent bridge from one of the constituent parts of the United Kingdom.
The Bridge has two towers, each 153 feet above the mark, and sixteen chains. Each chain is made up of nine foot links, each of thirty six iron bars half an inch square. The chains support the roadway, itself 579 feet long and thirty feet wide.
The one pound coin is in a presentation folder and is of uncirculated quality and has been carefully handled to avoid damage.
