We’re on the hunt for the best Coin Design of 2018 as part of the 2018 Change Checker Awards and we need your help! With over 50 new coins released this year, we’ve decided to shortlist the coins by denomination and then determine one overall winner from the top 10p, 50p, £2 and £5 coins as voted by Change Checkers!
A-Z 10p Coins
We start the voting with the 26 A-Z of Great Britain 10p coins which had a surprise release in March 2018 and have proved incredibly popular amongst collectors, yet notoriously tricky to find in circulation… 2.6 million were originally released back in March and now a further 2.6 million have been released, so they should start turning up in our change soon!
But which A-Z 10p coin is your favourite?
Cast your vote now using the poll at the bottom of the page and find out more about the different A-Z coins below!
With 26 beautiful designs to choose from, it’s not easy picking a favourite, but we’re looking forward to finding out which A-Z 10p coin is top amongst Change Checkers.
The winning 10p will then be entered into our Coin Design of the Year vote as part of the 2018 Change Checker Awards, alongside the top 50p, £2 and £5 coins from 2018 to determine which coin should be crowned the overall winner!
The voting has now closed and the results can be found below:
It’s now time for you to vote for your overall winner, shortlisted from Change Checker’s favourite A-Z 10p, 50p, £2 and £5 coin of the year.
At the recent World Money Fair held in Berlin, Germany, ‘The Coin of the Year’ (sponsored by World Coin News) winners were announced.
First held back in 1984, the awards are designed to, “…recognise the best of the coiner’s art and to encourage world mints to continue to challenge themselves in creating these great numismatic works.”
It’s safe to say that some of the winning coins are spectacular! I hope you enjoy looking through this range of amazing coin designs, don’t forget to let us know which is your favourite!
