This set contains 2017's five commemorative coins combined with the circulating coins of the year. The 2017 Annual Sets are the first to include the new 12-sided UK £1 coin before it enters circulation in March 2017.
The definitive circulating coins of 2017, from the 1p to the 50p, feature Matthew Dent's shield of the Royal Arms 'picture-puzzle' design, while the £2 coin features Britannia, designed by Antony Dufort. Each definitive coin is struck in its circulating alloy but finished to Proof standard, highlighting every detail of the design.
The set is completed by The Royal Mint Medal, designed by Royal Mint coin designer Kerry Davies. Taking the form of an ingot, the medal celebrates the circulating coinage of the UK.
