The theme of the this month was Children on Coins,
Young Rulers and Children’s Stories
Members brought items with portraits of young rulers and plenty of modern 50 p with childhood characters on them
Below are images (courtesy of the Royal Dutch Mint) of the coin designed by a child who won a competition to mark the last guilder. It is a lion.
If sterling had been abandoned in favour of the euro what design would we have chosen? Answers on a postcard please.
