SYO is Strike Your Own at the Royal Mint Experience.
Ah yes, that’s a possibility.

There’s only three coins in these sets that I’d be interested in... the Britannia “New Pence”, the D-Day and Kew Gardens.

These are almost certainly the first Royal Mint issues influenced by Brexit... I wonder which of the three EEC/EC/EU designs would have made it?  I speculate the rather boring starburst design from 1998 would have been here.  The ring-of-hands would have been out-of-date with only depicting nine hands (though still workable with the 1973 date) and the 1992-93 Conference table was slightly controversial as it depicted the chairs at different angles, which suggested disagreements (plus it’s also out-of-date in terms of countries now in it).

A bit disappointing that the NHS coin isn’t there but both Scouts and Guides are.

Hi,

Thanks, now everything is clear for me, but not for SCWC, NGC nor Numista, since they show the km416.2 coin's image for the km416.1 and no image for the km416.2. I have modified my documentation accordingly. Now I have to try communicate with those parties to get it right!

Change Checker appears to confirm that the version of Britannia included in these sets will be the original “New Pence” design.  Again, it says it’s unknown if these coins will be issued for circulation, but it seems unlikely that any saying “New Pence” will be.

Thanks a lot, on my coin the monogram is rather bad..... but the "7" is then an easy way to distinguish the two types?

Ole

Hej,

just to make sure, the coin with up-swung "7" is then the km416.2? I suppose, what you call "plain - no up-swing" "7" would then be the km416.1? NGC seems to see that the other way round?

Ole

I'm not sure about the KM numbers, but whichever they are, the coin with up-swung 7 is the Stockholm coin, plain is Avesta. There are varieties of the Avesta monogram and the shape of the crowns around it, but the Stockholm monogram is quite clearly very different. Surely other varieties also exist.

Here's a scanned image from the book "Sveriges mynt 1521-1977" by Ahlström, Almer and Hemmingsson. Number 325 is Avesta, 341 is Stockholm.

Reminds me most of an Indo-Parthian  type, issued under Pakores (also spelled Pacores), but style seems off ?

The NGC website is your best option, here is a link to one of the pages, select a coin to show the values etc.  use the search to find the coin type you want and then click to expand it
