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.

Professor Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer said: “As we celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS, we are delighted to be a part of this special collection of coins, celebrating what makes Britain great. The NHS is loved and valued by the nation and we want the country to take part in this fantastic coin hunt, and recognise our dedicated NHS staff of whom we are all so proud.”
