These days, I seem to only find inspiration to post about useless things. Or do I? Is good design useless? Of course not. But I had to call this post useless because it’s not about the trials and tribulations of my life. Like breaking up and having car crashes. It’s not about the great and wonderful things about my life. Like Life from the Inside gathering a growing audience.

No, this post is about coins. Behold The Royal Mint’s new coin designs:

Coins of the Realm

Aren’t these gorgeous? Fantastic? Or, as the Brits might say, brilliant? If you visit The Royal Mint’s site, you can read about the design and see how the coins fit together. Yes, fit together. That’s right, fit together. You heard me right, fit together. Your ears ain’t lyin’, I said “fit together.”

I got wind of this through Daring Fireball, who linked to a post at Hoefler & Frere-Jones. Visit the H&FJ link for a brief but humorous comparison with the US’s new $5 bill.
