Wales’ highest mountain will feature on a new commemorative £5 coin, to be struck at The Royal Mint in Llantrisant.
The coin will be part of a collection celebrating Britain’s most-loved natural attractions.
South Wales-based artists Glyn Davies and Laura Clancy painted the Snowdonian mountain range in watercolour, before engraving the details onto tools for the coins to be struck. Just over two thousand of the coins will be made.
The Giant’s Causeway, the Lake District and the White Cliffs of Dover will also feature as part of the collection.

The conductor Matthew Nash said: "Like many across the UK - and across the globe - the boys at Llantrisant Male Choir remember well the terrible events at Hillsborough 27 years ago and, after justice was finally being delivered on Tuesday, they wanted to pay a tribute to the 96."

The Royal Mint has unveiled plans to throw open its doors to the public for the first time in its 1,000 year history.
Officials today announced they are planning to develop a £7.7 million visitor centre at the mint in Llantrisant, South Wales.
Visitors will be allowed to look behind the scenes and see for themselves the people and processes responsible for the coins we use every day.
They will also have the opportunity to strike their own coin as a memento of their visit.
The project has been made possible after the Royal Mint secured a grant of £2.3million from the Welsh Government.
Construction of the visitor centre will begin this spring, subject to planning permission.
The Royal Mint in Llantrisant is striking a limited number of coins from the cargo of a British merchant ship - more than 70 years after it was originally meant to be delivered.
The SS Gairsoppa was carrying silver bullion bars over from India when it was torpedoed by a German U-boat in 1941. The ship and its cargo were eventually found 300 miles off the Irish coast in 2011. Dean Thomas reports.
The Royal Mint in Llantrisant is striking a set of silver coins from the bullion recovered from a merchant ship that sank during the Second World War.
British steam merchant ship SS Gairsoppa was torpedoed by a German U-boat in February 1941 off the coast of Ireland, whilst it was carrying a large shipment of silver bullion bars from India, destined for the Royal Mint.
The ship and its cargo were located in September 2011, and the silver bullion recovered by marine exploration company Odyssey Marine Exploration.
The bullion was three miles underwater - which they say made it the largest and deepest recovery of precious metal from a shipwreck in history.
Shane Bissett from the Royal Mint said: "The traditional Britannia coin design is the perfect image for the coins struck from SS Gairsoppa's long-lost cargo. We are so pleased to be able to bring these coins to the market at long last, albeit more than 70 years later than expected."
