2015-UK-Battle-of-Britain-50p-BU-Coin-on-Angle

2015 Battle of Britain 50p

  • Battle of Britain 50p

Next year’s 50p commemorating the Battle of Britain features three men rushing to their grounded aircraft, while a multitude of aircraft swarm in the skies ahead. The designer Gary Breeze wanted to convey the sense of danger which was posed at the time, and drew from his Grandfather’s own experience of the German bombers.

2015-UK-Magna-Carta-£2-BU-Coin-on-Angle

2015 Magna Carta £2

  • Magna Carta £2

John Bergdahl’s Magna Carta £2 design has a prominent medieval style and is very reminiscent of coins of that era. King John features at the centre, clutching the Magna Carta and a quill, with the anniversary and dates appearing around the outside.

2015-UK-WWI-Navy-£2-BU-Coin-on-Angle

2015 Royal Navy £2

  •  Royal Navy £2

The second design in the First World War £2 commemorative series focuses on the Royal Navy’s role. The reverse design for the new 2015 coin by David Rowlands features the imposing image of a battleship from the era approaching on the open sea.

  • Waterloo £5
2015-UK-Battle-of-Waterloo-£5-BU-Coin-on-Angle

2015 Battle of Waterloo £5

The new Waterloo £5 features a design by David Lawrence depicting the relationship between Wellington and Blücher which proved to be so important to the eventual allied victory against Napoleon. In a very detailed and intricate design, both men are shaking hands while on horseback, with the scene of the famous battlefield in the background.

  • Churchill £5

    2015-UK-Churchill-£5-BU-Coin-on-Angle

    2015 Winston Churchill £5

Churchill’s death in 1965 led to him becoming the first person outside of the Royal Family to be honoured on a coin. That coin was the 1965 crown, and this new £5 coin 50 years on bears some similarities to the original design, with Churchill’s recognisable face featuring very prominently.

2015 will be a vintage year for UK coins and there are certainly some interesting themes being commemorated. But which of these five new designs is your favourite? Vote in our poll here;

      Hi Terry, we don’t know when exactly in 2015 these coins will enter general circulation – but we will certainly be looking out for them when they do!

    The Royal Navy is a tradition in our family , and as my brother is residing in a navy nursing home, we have great respect for that service.
