The Royal Mint Advisory Committee on the design of coins, medals, seals and decorations recommends designs and themes for coinage to the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his capacity as Master of the Mint. Formal approval of all new coin designs is granted by Her Majesty the Queen.

We expect the themes for 2014 to be announced shortly.
