UK Pound Coin List
You will note that there are roughly 40 different types of UK pound coins. However, since the edge inscription is put on the blanks before the obverse and reverse is struck, and there is no way of arranging the way the blank will fall into the coining press, there are two varieties of each coin – one when the edge legend is the right way up when the Queen’s head is uppermost, and the other when the reverse is uppermost. Thus you have about 80 types to find!
