10p coins, A to Z

From the Royal Mint, ten-pence coins, celebrating British culture from A to Z. The art is sometimes off: F, for fish and chips, is ghastly. But at least T is tea. “Us Brits love a cup of tea,” says the Mint. (Really.) More here: “Q Is for Queuing” (The New York Times).

Of course I had to look, and discovered a whole area to the Royal Mint that I never knew existed before. I suppose that trying to flog 10p coins for £35 is one way to reduce the national debt, but I wasn't tempted!
