Royal Mint production errors mar launch of Britain’s most secure coin
In two days time, we shall be seeing the end of the old five pound note in favour of the waxy vegan-unfriendly ones. Apart from the slight controversy, the launch of our new fivers has been pretty smooth. Compare and contrast this with the implementation of the new pound coins by the Royal Mint. Lovely to look and similar to the pre-decimalisation threepenny bit, it is good to handle. Unless you have a warped coin, or one that has seen the inner part fall out.
