Product description

British currency is the oldest currency still in use in the world and one of the most respected. The Royal Mint's collection presents a complete set of the island kingdom's 2022 metallic coins.

The set includes a total of
eight British circulation coins, including the 12-sided one-pound coin, which is considered the most secure coin in the world due to its advanced anti-counterfeiting features (such as the "hologram" on the obverse side of the coin). Moreover, six coins with the nominal values ranging from 1 to 50 pence, which, when properly aligned, form an unusual numismatic puzzle.

The combined reliefs of the reverse sides of the six pence coins (50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1p) reveal the majestic
national emblem. The one-pound coin bears the English rose, Welsh leek, Scottish thistle and Northern Irish clover on the reverse side - plant motifs symbolizing the four nations of the United Kingdom. The reverse side of the two-pound coin is then dominated by a personification of Britannia with helmet, shield and trident. The obverse sides of the coins feature a profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of issue 2022 and an abbreviated Latin inscription which can be translated as 'Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith'.

All of the coins, which are stored in
a common packaging full of interesting facts (in English), have been struck in quality "brilliant"  - they have never been in circulation, which could damage them, and their relief is more detailed than that of conventional currency.
