ROYAL SHIELD OF ARMS

The designs used on decimal coins for last 40 years were an elegant expression of important emblems of Britian.  Now, in the twenty-first century, the time has come to rejuvenate the coinage by seeking designs that treat traditional symbols in an innovative and contemporary way.

Since decimalisation, three portraits of the Queen have appeared on the coins from the 1p to £1.

The new designs on the coins of 2008 are combined with the portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley.

Each coin in the new series of designs from the 50p to the 1p features a portion of the Royal Arms.

Presented in a beautifully-illustrated presentation folder.

EMBLEMS OF BRITAIN

The coinage of the United Kingdom has undergone many changes in the course of its long history and decimalisation was one of the most significant.  The new coins bore modern designs that would become embles of their time. 

This set brings together seven coins bearing those classic coinage designs that have been part of the fabric of British life for many years.

The original decimal coins bore the portrait of the Queen by Arnold Machin.  The 2008 coins carry the more mature portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley.

Presented in a beautifully-illustrated presentation folder.

Both coin sets are housed in the original Royal Mint black sleeve.
