New Coins Are Mint

It is now 2016 and a big year for anniversaries. To celebrate many landmarks in the calendar year the Royal Mint is releasing a new range of designs for coins that will appear on £2 and 50p coins. A member of the Royal Mint said ‘It is always exciting to see the new year’s designs revealed, commemorating the moments that matter, and revisiting some of the great events and stories from our history,’ Anne Jessopp, director of commemorative coin at the Royal Mint, said. ‘The British public should start to see these coins appearing in their change from spring 2016.’
