A representation of inflation

Last year's new designs of British coins are now coming into circulation. You can view them on the Royal Mint's website, The New Designs Revealed

According to the publicity, the shield of the Royal Arms has been given a contemporary treatment and its whole has been cleverly split among all six denominations from the 1p to the 50p, with the £1 coin displaying the heraldic element in its entirety.

Each of the coins has a little bit of the shield, much magnified. So it would take a huge coin to fit the whole shield on. Is this a representation of the inflation soon to come?
