    At least one of the £2 coins will be commemorating the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, I know that much.

    • A few of the coin themes are in the public domain. You should be able to find out what the 50p will be!

        The centenary of Benjamin Britten, I believe! Coronation of HM Elizabeth II for the £5 crown too, I think.

    I also spy a reference to a certain H.G. Wells novel that celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2013… (That’s it – I’ll let someone else have a go now!).
