Redesigned £1 Coin Shown to the Public

The Redesigned £1 Coin

The result of the public competition to design a new £1 coin design was made public, and will serve as the design for the new coinage that will be used in United Kingdom in a couple of years. The design that captured the attention of the judges to be used for the ‘tails’ part of the coin was from a 15-year old pupil, David Pearce, a student of Queen Mary’s Grammar School. Pearce’s take on coinage design won the contest conducted by The Royal Mint that drew more than 6,000 design-entries.
