New Coin Gimmick is Mint

Waking up to BBC Breakfast was pretty depressing this morning. No mortgages, the credit crunch and negative equity “which some of our older viewers will remember from the early nineties,” Declan Curry chortled. But how great is it that with the few coins we’ll have left to rub together that they’ve now got a fun new gimmick – they make a picture of the royal coat of arms when grouped together. Sounds like a good pub game to me.

This story just has everything – the competition, the story of the winning designer, a link to Britishness and a new take on an everyday item. Love it.
