New coins. At first I said "what?" but then, after seeing them laid out, I said "oh!"

I quite like them now.

Also: if you had told me that I would be wondering about adding money to an ISA about now a few years ago, I would have hit you.

That is indeed quite nicely done. I'd heard descriptions on t'radio but it's not the same. Of course, it'll be ages until there're enough in circulation for people to actually notice, so most won't ever care, but I like the idea.

Plus there will be all sorts of bored pub-table fun trying to arrange coins in such a way that one can see the shield.

Why is the two pence so huge? And were is the ha'penny?

Nobody is going to want to carry the penny or two pence. They are ridiculous.

Dude they're the same size as they are at the moment, only the design has changed. Also I like the two pence as you get a whole lion on there.

50 or so.

Two pences and one pences are regular sized, every other coin has shrunk, this saves metal. Two pences and one pences are now magnetic, somehow this also probably saves metal.

You'll be asking where the farthing is, next.

The only way I could think that was sweeter was if the shield was made complete by coins that totaled a pound in value. That would be tricky though, with as many denominations as you guys have combined with, well, math. A 2 pence coin though, really? How much use do those get?

they haven't made an appearance in my part of the country yet. We keep "copper" coins and when there seems to be a lot, I give them to charity. When I count what seems to be a massive hoard I find I have something like £1.56.

And thanks for the reminder about the ISA - I would have forgotten to put money in mine for the next tax year next week if you hadn't reminded me.

And, no, I certainly wouldn't have believed you would be doing it .....

That is about ten shades of awesome. I like the fifty states quarters that we're doing over here, but they don't quite compare.
