After almost 40 years The Royal Mint decided to make a modern coin, and the job went to 26-year-old Matthew Dent.

"I found the idea that members of the public could interact with the coins the most exciting aspect of this concept. It's easy to imagine the coins pushed around a school classroom table or fumbled around with on a bar - being pieced together as a jigsaw and just having fun with them."

Each coin features part of the design and by arranging each coin in a certain way completes the design, much like a jigsaw.

Designer: Matthew dent
