Exodia, the Anglo one
If you have two fifty pence coins, you can also do this.
For anyone that's interested, these were designed by Matthew Dent who won a public competition to design the next set of coins.
Here's the official photo from the Royal Mint: https://imgur.com/a/vMkwx
The first decimal coins that appeared in the United Kingdom back in 1968 were a well-loved representation of British heritage at that time. 40 years later, in 2008, we wanted to update the coins with a fresh set of designs.
The process began with a competition. The Royal Mint asked people to submit designs for the six coins that could stand alone or work as a set. We were looking for designs that would symbolise Britain, perhaps by using traditional heraldry, though designers were free to explore all options.
The Royal Mint Advisory Committee carefully examined every competition entry, looking for a set of designs that symbolised Britain while being contemporary. After a year of meetings and discussions, a clear winner emerged.
The winning set was designed by Matthew Dent, who had seen the competition advertised in a newspaper. He had explored a number of ideas before finally developing a heraldic set.

It's like one of those toys where you get a piece to assemble a larger toy...only with money

Yh and the pound coin (the old one) shows the coat of arms in full
This is the quality content I expect from this sub.
Are you taking notes, everyone?
My fiancee and I travelled to London last March and got a whole set. However, nearly a year later I think we've lost them...We literally went to a grocery store the morning we were leaving to get some 10 pence coins to finish a set. I think we got a pack of gum just so we weren't just asking for change.
Yeah we know.

Always good to invest in Britcoin
Ok guys, it's been nice. See you next month!
I wish inflation hadn’t made coins almost worthless. Coins are just so much more fun than paper money, in my opinion. I’d love to be able to pay for something by slapping a couple coins on the counter or something. Or hire someone by throwing a coin purse at them.

This looks like something Nicolas Cage would discover in National Treasure.
I went on a tour of The Royal Mint last year. It was more interesting than I anticipated.
That's pretty fuckin sweet
As a Briton, I wasn’t all that impressed by this post. Then I remembered reddit is American.
I specifically had my friend who is studying abroad in Birmingham send me one of each coin for this exact purpose, I just wish I had a case to keep them in the assembled shield shape.
Very neat and just enough interesting.
