Playing with change

The designer behind the new UK coinage (via Kottke) reveals the playful inspiration for his concept:

“I found the idea that members of the public could interact with the coins the most exciting aspect of this concept. It’s easy to imagine the coins pushed around a school classroom table or fumbled around with on a bar – being pieced together as a jigsaw and just having fun with them.”

Nice bit of interaction design thinking…
