Changing Change

Bryony got some weird looking 1p coins as change the other day. I've never seen special coins with a denomination less than 50p before so I was a bit confused. A quick trip to the Royal Mint's website proved enlightening. Our coins are getting a makeover!

Basically all the coins (apart from the relatively new £2 coin) are getting new designs replacing those originally introduced over 40 years ago with decimalisation.

I could go on but the best thing, if you are interested, is to have a read of the Royal Mint's guide to the new coins.

Glad you did that posting! I got a new penny the other day and pointed it out to Jo but I hadn't realised there was going to be a whole range of them.
