This set contains 2017's five celebratory coins alongside with the definitive coins of the year. The 2017 Annual Sets are the first to include the new 12-sided UK ₤1 coin prior to it goes into circulation in March 2017.

The circulating coins of 2017, from the 1p to the 50p, feature Matthew Dent's shield of the Royal Arms 'picture-puzzle' style, while the ₤2 coin features Britannia, created by Antony Dufort. Each definitive coin is struck in its traditional alloy but completed to a Proof standard, highlighting every intricate detail of the design.

The set is completed by The Royal Mint Medal, developed by Royal Mint coin designer Kerry Davies. Taking the style of an ingot, the medal celebrates the coinage of the UK.

A century of royal service is honoured by a ₤5 coin marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the House of Windsor.

The 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen, among the best-loved English authors, is marked with a ₤2 coin. Coin Design Inspired by Jane Austen Portrait © National Portrait Gallery, London.

A ₤2 coin also pays homage to the aviators of the First World War and their sacrifices in the race for supremacy of the skies. The Royal Mint continues to work with Imperial War Museums as part of the Mints series commemorating the First World War.

Sir Isaac Newton, genius of the Scientific Revolution and one of the most well-known men ever to perform the role of Master of the Mint, is remembered with a 50p coin.
