    Great to see a new set of coins going into circulation. I have a soft spot for the 50p but they all look great

    I voted for the Bee.
    They are at risk of becoming endangered, and are vital for the pollination of food crops and fauna etc

    Didn’t we have similar designs on British Isles coins not long ago?
    Any news on the ‘new’ £1 coin that we were told about

    The salmon jumping fifty pence is exquisite in every detail the water splashing and the fish looks so
    elegant as it rises out the water I could look at it all day long has I have never seen a fish jumping out of
    the water it is a beautiful coin what more can I say fantastic fifty pence piece.
