The new Sterling coin designs: how much genius is on display there? I can’t begin to say how much I love this throw-out-the-rulebook take on currency tokens.
They’ve set back the cause of entering the European single currency by at least a decade. These things are just too damned pretty to give up.
They’ve given me hope that the 2012 Olympics might be Dashed Good rather than the UK-default A Bit Crap. After all, everyone visiting will be handing around these tokens of British modernity – how could they not be enjoying themselves?
