Yesterday the Royal Mint launched The Great British Coin Hunt. They have designed 26 new 10p coins to put into general circulation, with each of the designs featuring a letter of the alphabet and a quintessential British icon.
All Post Office branches will start to receive bags of 10ps including a random mixture of the new coins from early next week for general circulation. You can leave it to chance and search through your coins to see if you have been lucky or you can visit one of the selected Post Office branches and purchase a pack or a coin with your letter of choice. Each letter will stand for an iconic British landmark. If the cold weather has put you off venturing to your local branch then you can find them online at www.postoffice.co.uk/royal-mint.
You can share your lucky findings on social media or Yammer with the hashtag #newtenpencecoin.
