First look at 2017 coins

The Royal Mint has just revealed the new coin designs for 2017. On first inspection, the coin that caught my eye was the striped £2 coin remembering the author Janet Austen. What do you think?

It looks like quite the year for an amateur coin collector in Britain with the arrival of the new pound coin on 28th March and a new range of coins throughout the year! Interestingly the mint directs you to order your uncirculated set but then displays only the 2015 range for sale. No doubt they will sort this later in the day. [Edit – they have corrected this fault now and I have managed to order my collection]
