Royal Mint Unveils New UK Coins

Who Has Cooler Coins? US vs. Royal Mint

The US Mint and the Royal Mint have both completed a couple of exciting projects recently — the purple five is now in circulation on this side of the pond, while there's a whole new set of artsy coins being generated for circulation this Summer on the other side of the Atlantic. The back of Britain's small change has been redesigned for the first time since 1968, and when aligned properly the six coins form the outline of the royal shield of arms.

The value of the coins notwithstanding, which would you prefer jingling in your purse?
