SUPERB BIRTHDAY PRESENT!
30th celebration for £1 and myself :-)
Thank you Mitch & Una.


The first installation, the first two out of four commemorative coins to celebrate 30th year of £1 coin since it was first introduced in 1983, one for each constituent nations; England, Wales, Scotland and Northen Ireland.

Depicting pairs of floral emblems, it is the first floral series since the 1984 floral series started, which was a bestseller.  The 2013 coins show the rose and the oak to represent England with the leek and the daffodil for Wales. Coins representing Northern Ireland and Scotland will be released in 2014 to complete the quartet.

Royal Mail officially released these two on 14 December 2012.
