The Great British Coin Hunt, Quintessentially British A – Z

It’s here, the day has come and we are so excited to finally introduce to you the Great British Coin Hunt, Quintessentially British A-Z! From the Angel of the North to the red-chested Robin, an English Breakfast to the perfect brew – we have used the alphabet to map out the A-Z of what makes Britain great. And, for the first time ever, we have struck commemorative designs on a 10 pence piece!


The official Great British Coin Hunt range is as follows:



The Quintessentially British A-Z series also celebrates two anniversaries as 2018 sees the heart of our nation, the NHS, turn 70 and the Angel of the North turn 20. As well as the more everyday items, such as the Postbox and Double-Decker bus, the Great British Coin Hunt also acknowledges some of the UK’s most astonishing scientific and technological achievements – W is for World Wide Web, representing Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the internet, and G is for Greenwich Mean Time, celebrating our country’s naval history and establishing a global timescale.
