Seven new pennies

Not liking the new British coins all that much, I have to say.

Apart from the fact they look a lot like the cardboard money that I used to have in my toy cash register many years ago, they don't look very friendly to tourists who might have little or no English, and/or just bad eyesight. I'd have thought the first rule of currency design would be to use biggish numbers, not just (in some cases, tiny) words?
