Quote! from Arnold Machin celebrating forty years of coin design.
'I aimed to produce a design with charm and dignity and yet without sentimentality. To create an illusion of strong relief thereby counteracting the stringent limits of the actual projection essential in coin production. To attempt to recapture something of the richness and vitality of the earlier British coins which has not seemed possible with the limiting techniques of modern mass production.
