20-Pound Coin Revealed

The Royal Mint has unveiled a new £20 coin. Tut. Why do they have to keep coming up with these new ideas? I don't like it, but than, I'm always uncomfortable with change.

250,000 have been produced and can be purchased for £20, which makes sense. And I'm glad there won't be too many of them. It's heading towards the situation when you go to put your pocket change in a charity box, see there's a £20 in there and are too embarrassed to stop yourself putting it in.

They say the item is not intended for everyday use although it is legal tender. So when you go in a newsagents and try to pay with a £20 note, they look at you, tut and say, "Don't you have anything smaller?" You can say yes and pull that coin out.
