The design presents a selection of 50 stylised icons that represent the various facets of the WWF – shapes that complement the WWF logo, but shapes that are recognisable at a very small size. If you peer closely, you'll see that the design features mammals, birds, fish, insects, fruit, seeds, trees and plants. There are also icons representing human impact; farming, transport, renewable energy sources and the home.
The new coins will be released into general circulation in 2011. For more information have a look at The Royal Mint website
