The Prettiest Pound

The United Kingdom has revealed their new line of coins and they are quite beautiful.

Yes, we have our new 5 dollar bill with that eggplant-colored stamp. But they have coins with edge, with actual edges. Perhaps our Peter should start working on a new design for our money; “The winning designer is 26-year-old Matthew Dent, originally from Bangor who now lives and works in London as a graphic designer.” I am not saying that having a cool coin for each of our cool states isn’t cool, but their coins will now make puzzles. And when I solve my daily coin-puzzle, I could get a cup of coffee in exchange for a Royal Arm.

Well, with our dollar meaning virtually nothing anymore, I suppose we should just be satisfied that it still smells decent. For more on the new mint, go here.
