Collecting the Royal Shield

You've probably noticed by now the cool new coins for 2009 that started popping up towards the end of last year. If you've had one of the new £1 coins, you'll probably know that when you fit all the coins together, they make up the Royal Shield from the Royal Coat of Arms. I don't dig that they're Royal, but as soon as I learned that they fitted together, I knew I had to collect them. This week I finally got the elusive 50p piece from the nice lady in the Post Office in Hursley, so here they are in all their glory:

There are also some new £2 coins about, one commererating Robert Burns and the other Charles Darwin, but I haven't seen any of those yet.
