So, I have compiled a list below showing which coins are now available in your change and those that are still to be released.

The list will be updated as soon as we get confirmation from The Royal Mint that any new coins have entered circulation.

2017 circulation coin release dates

  • WWI Aviation £2: A small amount released in September (Duxford Airshow), full release TBC
  • Jane Austen £2: A small amount released in July (Winchester Cathedral), full release  TBC
  • Peter Rabbit 50p: September 2017
  • Jeremy Fisher 50p: TBC
  • Tom Kitten 50p: TBC
  • Benjamin Bunny 50p: TBC
  • Sir Isaac Newton 50p: June 2017

It’s worth noting that coins are only released into general circulation as and when they are required by the banks.

If you find yourself asking, “When are the 2017 coins released into circulation?”, this is the place to check!
