 NHS 10p coin launched for 70th birthday

This year the NHS turns 70 and, to mark this major milestone, The Royal Mint has launched an NHS 10p coin.

The coin forms part of an A-Z of what makes Britain great with the world famous NHS being ‘N’. Other coins include ‘B’ for Bond, ‘S’ for Stonehenge and ‘T’ for Tea.

The NHS 10p coin is a perfect way to celebrate the birthday, reminding people about the vital role the service plays in our lives and recognising the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are always there to greet, advise and care for us.

Have you found an NHS 10p coin yet? Why not take a picture and share it via social media using the hashtags #NHS70 and #coinhunt?
