New British Coins

Did you see that Britain is changing its change?

Here’s an image of the reverses of the new coins, arranged to display the… well, here, listen to a Brit explain it:

“… the Shield of the Royal Arms has been given a contemporary treatment and its whole has been cleverly split among all six denominations from the 1p to the 50p, with the £1 coin displaying the heraldic element in its entirety. This is the first time that a single design has been used across a range of United Kingdom coins.”

Still no explanation on why they call it football instead of soccer.
