Found front and center on many yuletide cards, the charming robin is often associated with the festive season. Historically associated with ill fortune, a handful of people still refuse to write their Christmas wishes on a card featuring the red breasted bird.
With a length of 14cm, wingspan of 20-22cm and a weight of just 14-21g, these cute little birds are often thought to be friendly creatures, but that is certainly not the case. They may look adorable, but robins are aggressively territorial and quarrelsome, and will not hesitate to drive away other intruding robins.
The Royal Mint is excited to reveal its very first Quintessentially British A to Z coin collection celebrating all things British. The collection features 26 ten-pence coins, each one featuring a fun and quirky Quintessentially British design, from the iconic red Double Decker Bus and the famous prehistoric monument, Stonehenge to Ian Fleming’s secret agent, Bond, are all available as part of a very unique collection. Please join us to celebrate the United Kingdom one coin at a time, letter by letter, rhyme by rhyme.
