The first coin was released in 2017 and features a design of Big Ben previously used on a £100 coin released in 2015; the second and third coins, both released in 2018, feature Tower Bridge and Trafalgar Square. The next coin is expected to portray Buckingham Palace;[1][2] the coin has a maximum mintage of 50,000.[3] The same designs appeared on a four coin proof set in 2014, these had trichromatic colour-printing and had a mintage of only 3,500 sets.[4]
