    Now that the 2016 mintage figures are out and most are not as rare as anticipated, when will you be updating the scarcity index? – particularly the £2 one.


    • Luke Hearn says:

      Hi Jim, that’s a good point and the answer is yes, we will be releasing quarterly updates for 50p and £2 coins. This will also allows us time to have a look at the swap request date to get the most accurate picture. I hope this helps, Luke


  2. Scandalous numbers here, hardly worthwhile saving any of these. Thanks for nothing Royal Mint.

    Definitive 50p shield design for 2016 not released in to circulation. Must be very rare then and worth £££££


  4. James (UK) says:

    Thanks for this. Any news on the 2017 commemorative coins release dates? All I can find is “Spring”, and the Royal Mint has no BU versions for sale (yet?), bar the full year 2017 set.



  5. James Watson says:

    Any news on the 2017 new coins release dates? I see only “Spring” listed, and it’s May already. Nothing for any 2017 commemorative coins, except the complete yearly packs.

  8. Terry McElligott says:

    Do you know yet if any of the new 2017 Beatrix Potter 50p’s will be entered into circulation, or will we only be able to purchase these as uncirculated coins?


    • Luke Hearn says:

      Hi Terry, they will all be entered into circulation however I’m afraid we do not yet know the exact date. As soon as we do, we will let everybody know. Thanks luke
