Loch Ness Monster Spotted on British Coin Series

The Nessie coin is one of 26 10-pence pieces in the new Quintessentially British A to Z series. Each coin represents a different letter of the alphabet and a corresponding piece of British culture. Along with “L” for Loch Ness, there’s “B” for Bond … James Bond, “F” for Fish & Chips, “D” for double-decker, “S” for Stonehenge, and “Q” for Queuing. Britons are encouraged to take part in the “Great British Coin Hunt” by looking for the coins in their change and collecting all 26.

Of interest to coin-collectors… In 2011, the Canadian Mint produced a Bigfoot coin!
