I don't know the stories behind them. I've only ever done research into older coins. And yes - if it says "1997" on the coin, that's when it was minted. All of these except the Belgian Congo one are quite new.

None of these are from the UK, don't be fooled by the Queen, she appears in lots of different places The Bermuda coin I believe was not meant for general usage, just a commemmorative coin. However, the UK themselves have 7-sided coins like the Falklands coin - both their 20 pence and 50 pence coins are 7-sided to this day, and have been ever since they were introduced in 1969.
