About the design

The 2007 Gateshead Millenium Bridge £1 coin was the final coin in a series of four designs by Australian-born wood engraver, Edwina Ellis, each illustrating a bridge from the four constituent parts of the United Kingdom. Opened to the public on 17 September 2001, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge stretches 126 metres across the River Tyne. Its striking arched opening, designed by Gifford and Partners with Wilkinson Eyre, has a remarkable presence and is a distinctive landmark in Newcastle and Gateshead.
