Myth, legend or based on fact – the stories of Nessie the Lock Ness monster have been told for hundreds of years. The coin design showing an L with the monsters tale wrapped around looks to have been based on the famous 1934 “photograph” of the Lock Ness monster.
The Loch Ness 10p coin can be found in your change, coins entered circulation dated 2018.
The Royal Mint released the Quintessentially British A to Z coin 10p collection in March 2018, with first strike L for Loch Ness coins sold online for £2 each, or on a card from The Royal Mint shop for £4.

You can store your letter L 10p with the rest of the alphabet in the Great British Coin Hunt 2018 10p Coin Collector Album.
