New £1 Coin

The Royal Mint has unveiled this graphic of its New £1 Coin, which will enter circulation in 2017. It was designed by 15-year-old schoolboy David Pearce, who entered the winning design out of around 6,000 entries. It shows the English rose, the Welsh leek, the Scottish thistle and the Irish shamrock, all emerging from a Royal Coronet. Coin artist David Lawrence and lettering expert Stephen Raw refined the schoolboy's design. It will boast the Royal Mint's latest anti-counterfeiting technology (CLICK).
