The 2017 United Kingdom Annual Coin Sets
Monday, 16 January 2017 | Gareth
The 2017 United Kingdom Annual Coin Set combines the nation’s eight circulating coins with the year’s five commemorative releases.
The 2017 Annual Sets are the first to include the new 12-sided £1 coin before it enters circulation in March 2017. The Nations of the Crown 2017 UK £1 Coin was designed by 15-year-old David Pearce following a public competition.
The circulating coins of 2017, from the 1p to the 50p, feature Matthew Dent’s shield of the Royal Arms ‘picture-puzzle’ design, while the £2 coin features Antony Dufort’s Britannia.
