[COINS CLUB] Has the Royal Mint got it wrong?

Yes. the design is modern but wrong form one point. The denominations are not indicated in figures and appear only in words. Could be problematic for immigrants and tourists? The convention world wide is to have Roman numerals indicating the denomination, though many middle eastern and South Asian countries do not follow it. However, I have not been able to understand the reasons for need to have new reverse if the size and metallic content is being retained as well as the Obverse ( the Queen's effigy) remaining the same.
