A New Crown...
The Queen's getting a new Crown for her Jubilee. No, not one to put on her noggin, it's one for her pocket. There is a new £5 coin being produced by the Royal Mint.

Oh, I forgot she never carries money does she. Well, it's a crown for we commoners then I suppose.
But wait, who's going to want to carry a thumping great heavy coin? Answer: no-one.
But then we said that about the £1 coin... and the £2 after that... D'oh! Looks like I'll need to get stronger trouser pockets again.
