One Pound - Menai Strait Bridge Design
The Menai Strait Bridge will appear on the 2005 pound coin representing Wales. According to the Royal Mint, the new series of reverse designs is required because the existing four-year sequence of £1 coins has come to an end. The designs depict bridges from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The designer is engraver Edwina Ellis, who won a limited competition judged by the Royal Mint Advisory Committee. It will represent the third series of £1 reverse designs. The first series of "Floral" designs was used between 1984 and 1987 and again between 1989 and 1992. The second series of "Heraldry" designs was used between 1994 and 1997 and was then repeated between 1999 and 2002. During the intervening years, and in 2003, designs representing the whole of the United Kingdom were employed.

Two Pound - 60th Anniversary of WWII
Celebrating the end of the Second World War, this fabulous bi-colour gold coin bears on the reverse a beautiful picture of St Paul's Cathedral, the great church that survived the Blitz to become a great symbol of hope to the war-torn nation. Floodlit, in joyous contrast to the years of blackout, its awe-inspiring and beautifully detailed architecture is faithfully reproduced in stunning in Proof quality. Its edge inscription bears the emotive words - IN VICTORY: MAGNANIMITY, IN PEACE: GOODWILL, part of the famous maxim that prefaces Churchill's history of the Second World War.
Struck in both yellow and red 22 carat gold, the coin comes in a handsome presentation case of green leather with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity guaranteeing its provenance and its strict issue limit of just 1,750* individual pieces.
