Back in November 2014, the Royal Mint unveiled the new themes and designs for all 2015 coins intended for circulation.
As you can imagine, this caused a lot of excitement and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on them. In a poll, we asked change checkers to vote which design was their favourite with the clear winner being the 2015 Royal Navy £2.
So where are these 2015 commemorative coins?
The Battle of Britain 50p was released into circulation a few months ago, and a few lucky change checkers have managed to get their hands on them. Others, are still looking but we’re sure they’ll turn up soon.
The other commemorative coin that has proved to be very popular among collectors was the 2015 Royal Coat of Arms £1. It was revealed in December that the final batch of round £1 coins came off the production line at the Royal Mint, meaning that the only 2016 pound coins available to collectors will be Brilliant uncirculated version of the £1 coin.
It is our understanding that the remaining 2015 commemorative coins will finally be released into circulation in March, so you may be able to find them in your change in just a matter days.
So keep checking your change over the coming weeks – you could be one of the first to find these £2 coins!
