first time i get the new £1 coin in my change

12 May

the london 9.41pm 14C dry night friday 2017

the old coin on the left was issued in 1995. quite a close similarity of the queen’s portrait , dont you think? to the new one? i only now notice it , and only because they were given to me together as change and i wanted to show them side by side to compare the size.

quite a young looking portrait of the queen  in the new coin. the new coin came out quite some time ago, but it is only today that i got it in my change. surprised that it is the same size as the old coin, but dont know why i thought it would be larger. maybe it is the design, being two toned makes it appear larger when viewed on its own.
