The Royal Mint has produced not one, not two but THREE new £2 coins for 2013! Two to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the London underground (the "Tube") and one to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Guinea. There is also a new design 50p to mark the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Christopher Ironside - the man who designed the new decimal reverses in 1971 and a £5 crown marking 60 years since the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
