A new 10p coin has been released, featuring the Loch Ness monster.
Created as part of The Great British Coin Hunt, a set of 26 new coins have been released, with an A-Z of the many things that make Britain great.
The coins were launched on June 1 and are available to purchase from The Royal Mint in a range of finishes, from uncirculated to silver proof.
They can also be found in shops. Nessie was chosen due to her huge popularity in the UK and beyond, and represents the letter L.
Last Saturday, 1 June marked National Fish and Chips Day, and to celebrate this Great British dish, two Scottish chippies, including The Fish Works in Largs, Ayrshire, and Quayside Restaurant and Fish Bar in Gourdon, Aberdeenshire, had the F coin, featuring a fish design.
Additional coins launched as part of The Great British Coin Hunt include James Bond, Stonehenge and tea.
Accompanying the physical Great British Coin Hunt collection, The Royal Mint has introduced the Great British Coin Hunt app, allowing coin hunters to create a digital collection of the coins they find in their change.
Users can download the app for free from the App Store or Google Play, to scan the coin with their camera, unlocking exclusive content and placing their coin into a digital folder. They can also link the app to their social media to share the treasures they find in their pockets and wallets.
A heat-map within the app shows where different coins are being found around the country and users can even use the app to have a go at designing their own coin.
The entire collection has been rolling out into circulation across the country and will be available at selected Post Offices. A collectors’ folder, and silver proof and uncirculated versions of the 10p coins are available to purchase from The Royal Mint website.
