Curiouser and curiouser… What we know about the new Alice £5 coins!

“We’re all mad here!”

That’s right, at Change Checker HQ we’re all going mad for the new Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass £5 coins which are set to be released later this year!

In the latest Royal Proclamation, it has just been confirmed that two brand new UK £5 coins are set to be issued celebrating Lewis Carroll’s ingenious novels.

English author, Lewis Carroll first introduced the world to the curious girl named Alice in 1865 with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland which was later followed by Through the Looking-Glass in 1871. A firm favourite for generations of readers, Carroll’s novels are considered some of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre.

We can’t wait to see these new £5 coins when they’re released, but for now the designs remain top secret!

If you want to get ahead of the crowd, and be one of the first to receive these coins when they’re individually released, you can do so by signing up to the Change Checker New Issue £5 Subscription Service >>

    I am already signed up for certified BU coin subscriptions for 50p, £2 and £5. Do you not have an algorithm which filters out members such as me from receiving these invitations, rather than a blanket mailing? I find this very tiresome.

    Sounds like a great set of coins to add to my collection, I just wish they would issue some new designs on the pound coin for a change.
