In the news again

The press do love to bash our coinage don't they? Every time a new design is released the press criticise it; every time the number of fake £1 coins supposedly in circulation is announced the press have a field day and the introduction of the new nickel plated 5p and 10p (due in the next few weeks) has provided another chance to stir things up a little! As this story proves. Now we aren't saying the facts are right or wrong, we aren't dermatologists, however one thing is certain - it keeps coins in the news and that has to be a good thing!
