Lettering: FIVE PENCE

Engraver: Matthew Dent

Matthew Dent (born in 1981 in Bangor, Wales) is a British graphic designer known for the new reverse sides of seven coins of the 2008 pound sterling. He conceived the coins by dividing the shield of the Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom among the pence coins, so that when they are placed together they show the entire shield. The full shield appears on his pound coin.

Comments

Introduced in 2008 when the small coinage designs were changed from the Emblems of Britain to the Royal Shield of Arms.

Information received from the Royal Mint circulating coin team:

‘The issue date for nickel-plated steel 5 and 10 pence pieces was originally intended to be January 2011, however this was deferred to January 2012 to allow additional time for automatic vending machines to be updated to accept the coins. As a result, the 2011 dated 5 and 10 pence pieces were issued into circulation in 2012 instead.’
