We hate our new money!

Dirty cash

Why does everything have to be modern?

There we were with perfectly lovely coins with things like portcullises and feathers and roses and crowns and lions and thistles and Boudiceas on the back. And then they go and set up a public competition (what is this? Vision On?) for some numpty to design this little lot…

His name is Matthew Dent, he’s ginger and he wears glasses and he’s just 26. Sorry but we want our money designed by someone who looks like a wizard or at least Winston Churchill.

Apparently, the idea is that they all sort of run into each other. Oh, we get it. The pound is the whole image, the rest ‘bits of a pound’, so to speak.

Oh, we like it a bit better now.

  2. That’s funny. But seriously, if they’re preparing us for the Euro then… oh actually, nothing. I was going to threaten emigration but I’m quite happy where I am. I’ll just have to colour in all my new coinage with using Crayolas…

  3. Exactly. These things should never done via a competition type thing – the public can simply not be trusted with these matters.

  6. Hello? Have I just come across the Daily Mail website by mistake?? Hardly eye-blisteringly cutting edge are they? Ye-olde with a twist, s’nice.

  7. Hm…I get optically confuzzled by the bits of a square sticking out into an empty round coinage space. One does so hate being distressed by one’s pocketchange.
