Default What do you guys think of the new Pound Sterling coin designs?

They should be coming out soon in Britain. I think they're awesome.











Pretty cool, eh?

Yeah that's awesome! Have you seen Brazilian bills. They're pretty tight too.

Cool

I like how each coin has a piece of the Shield of the Royal Arms like a puzzle and when put together shows the entire shield.

As a coin collector myself, I find the design to be very unique and interesting. I live in the US and have very little foreign coins, and the ones I do have are mostly Canadian and Mexican. I have a few Asian coins.

Very cool looking coins, indeed. Now I just have to see if I can get a few imported.

How about the new $5 USD bills? The first time I saw one I thought it was a counterfeit, the purple 5 looks so weird:

I still can't believe you guys put "In God We Trust" on your currency. Complete violation of your beautiful Constitution and 1st Amendment.
