|2004 Three Coin Set|
In 2004, the Royal Mint issued a three coin set containing the two pound, one pound and fifty pence coin from that year.
Obverse - Fourth Portrait
All 2004 coins carried the fourth portrait obverse design by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Four Minute Mile Fifty Pence
Fifty years ago, Roger Bannister made sporting history by achieving a feat which previously had been considered physically impossible - to run a mile in under four minutes. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bannister's world breaking record the 50p coin for 2004 bears a new design depicting the runner's stride, symbolising strength and determination.
A runner superimposed on a stop watch, designed by James Butler.
Forth Railway Bridge One Pound Coin
The Forth Railway Bridge appears on the 2004 pound coin representing Scotland. 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.
