Keep the Change

Keep the change, and boy will you want to. We all know interiors need to be refreshed from time to time, and apparently, the same goes for change. The United Kingdom’s Royal Mint revealed new designs that will be featured on its change, which includes the 1p to the 50p pieces. The £1 features the the Shield of the Royal Arms in it’s entirety, however, the rest of the coins (pictured below) display fragments of the Royal Arms. It is only when the pieces are put together in a formation that they display the whole Shield.

Click here for a longer description from the Royal Mint. The designer was graphic designer, Matthew Dent, 26. His design was chosen from 4,000 entries. What do you think? Did they make the right choice? Do our coins in the U.S. need a face lift?
