Photograph Your Change and Win £1,000!

cl-britain-in-coins

There are almost 100 different commemorative £2, £1 and 50p coin designs currently in circulation in the United Kingdom.

Featuring topics ranging from the Olympics, British bridges, Trinity House lighthouses, Kew Gardens and Samuel Johnson’s dictionary, British coinage is full of surprises.

‘The purpose of the #BritainInCoins competition is to encourage the general public to check their coins carefully and to try to capture an image which draws inspiration from these themes,’ said Change Checker’s Mark Liversidge.

‘People will be amazed at the variety of designs on their cash and once you start discovering the treasure in your pocket, it becomes addictive!’

The competition, which closes on 30 September 2014, will be judged by a panel consisting of Matt Tindall, creative director of The Westminster Collection, former Royal Mint chief engraver Matthew Bonaccorsi, and award-winning photographer Stephen Banks.

One winner, whose image is judged to be the best entry in terms of its overall artistic and technical merit, will pocket the first prize.

Five runners-up will receive a prize of a Royal Mint 2014 Year Set of coins.

Judge Stephen Banks said: ‘This competition is a real challenge to anyone with a camera – with a really great prize.

‘Anyone could win it if they can come up with a truly ingenious photograph that uses a British coin as inspiration.’
