    Coin Design Suggestions

    The objective of our Coin Issue Programme is to develop extremely high quality coin with a theme to match. It is essential that the design is clear, understood and desirable. A Numismatic Advisory Committee has been established by the Bank to evaluate suggestions and make recommendations for themes/subjects for inclusion in our future coin issue programmes. Suggestions should be sent at least 18 months in advance to ensure that they are included in the evaluation process.

    We recognise that our customers would like to have some input into the design of our products. We welcome any ideas that you believe may have the potential to make it onto our coins. 

    You can submit your suggestions to us through our Contact Us form. Please indicate the intended year of issue for your theme at the beginning of your suggestion.
