UK Copyright Law for Coins
Despite the robot boilerplate, the display of any British coin’s image on Wikipedia appears to clearly fall within the copyright guidelines of the Royal Mint.
|“||Guidelines on the use of United Kingdom coin designs…
Copyright for designs and images of United Kingdom decimal coins subsists in the Crown. Authority has been delegated by the Crown to the Royal Mint. The Royal Mint is responsible for authorising the use of coinage design and the reproduction of images of UK coins.
The flat form reproduction of a coin for use in advertisements or other promotional literature is normally permissible, providing the coin is reproduced in a faithful likeness and shown in good taste. The Royal Mint does not presume to be the arbiters of good taste, but relies on the good sense of the advertisers themselves. The stipulation that coins should be reproduced in a faithful likeness is made to prevent part of the coinage design being used out of context. However, showing part or a segment of a coin will usually be acceptable, providing the image is used in good taste and is clearly recognisable as depicting part of a coin.

Reproductions on Wikipedia of Bank of England currency notes are made by permission of the Bank of England, ref. FCA4754, which needs to be renewed annually.
