New Coins

I am, in my (very limited) richer moments a non-obsessive collector of UK coins. And I like these new ones:

I think the idea is good, I think the use of the traditional heraldry is good (although there clearly should be a Scottish version with the proper arrangement of the Royal Arms for use in Scotland - this being different from the Royal Arms of Scotland). And I will buy a set, when they come out in silver Piedfort.

And for those bemoaning the loss of Britannia, can I please direct you to the 2008 design:

Got the Royal Mint catalogue through this morning. £11k for the two (old & new) sets in platinum. A mere £6k for the new lot. :) My dearly beloved thinks not.
