Sir: With regard to today's story about the Chancellor's displeasure at the idea of British coinage depicting birds representing each country, has he not seen the elegant coinage of part of the United Kingdom that has already depicted not only a bird, but also milk cans and a cow - namely Guernsey?

Perhaps the committee should obtain a current set and see how well both natural and heraldic devices can be combined.

Yours sincerely
