Quote from: Alan71 on February 15, 2023, 08:09:53 PMIt was actually Gordon Brown that put the kybosh on the UK joining the euro. Tony Blair would have happily sold us down the river until Brown, as Chancellor, stopped him in his tracks. Brown set some economic conditions in order to join it that the UK couldn't possibly meet. They were also nervous about putting it to a public vote, which would have almost certainly killed it once and for all.In hindsight, they really should have done referenda for certain EU-related issues. Other countries did, but the UK saved it all for an in-out vote in 2016.

Instead of Charles, who won't even last that long because of his already advanced age, they should just put Boris Johnson on the Obverse. Johnson is the father of the modern Pound Sterling, otherwise the Brits would have succumbed to the Euro.I you have to admit, Boris would make a great portrait. And for the half crown they can use an iconography representation of John Lennon. I mean WHY NOT. Why do the coins need to be droll. And put a Yellow submarine on the pound note. Anti-counterfeiting devices can be built in so that when you rub the note on the corner of a table it should distinctly say "Yeah Yeah Yeah". It can be done. The value of the pond will skyrocket if they did that.

That yellow submarine which I recall is a British contraption called boaty mcboat face is quite apt for that country's quick descent into ignominy. That could serve as Charles's coat of arms perhaps.
