UK Coin Picture/
You know how there are different designs on the "tails" side of UK coins?
They celebrate all kinds of different things, but did you know that in 2008 a set was made with a sort of jigsaw of a shield on it?
My Dad pointed it out to us and my oldest son collected a set. We decided that instead of just sitting in a box somewhere they should be on display.
This is how I did it:
I used a 6" (15cm) square box frame
A 6" (15cm) square of fairly think card (so it can take the weight of the coins)
Strong glue (I used a glue gun)
A set of coins with the shield design
Arrange the coins like this:
Be careful to line them all up carefully and make sure they are the right way up. (I glued the 5p in the middle upside down - twice!)
When you are happy, glue them onto the card. In my first attempt I used glue dots and in the morning everything except the 5p and 1p had fallen off, so use a good strong glue.
Once the glue is dry, pop the card into the frame and you're done!
