Britain ditches Britannia!

ncoin102a.jpgThe Royal Mint today announced Britain’s currency was to be redesigned with Britannia losing her pride of place on the 50 pence piece. Instead the new coins will represent different sections of the Royal coat of arms which when joined together show the full arms in all its glory. I believe these new designs are a great reflection of Britains historical traditions whilst being modern and contemporary in their overall design. Whether you like the new designs or not, there is one thing upon which I think we can all agree… at least its not the Euro!
