Hello , a question :
The coin set of st. Helena and Ascension  ( 1 penny-2pence-5pence-10pence-20pence-50pence-1pound-2pounds) are minted for circulation ?? or just for collectors ??
Sorry if is a repost
thank you!


Yes, they are minted for circulation. I did read something on the internet by an inhabitant of St Helena, who was complaining that when he visited the Falkland Islands, the Falklanders wouldn't accept his St Helena coins or notes. UK coins and notes also circulate in St Helena, of course.

If you want a St Helena-Ascension coin set, Google the St Helena Post Office.
Visit the website of The Royal Mint Museum.

See: The Royal Mint Museum.



Although they're not legal tender here, you occasionally get St Helena and Ascension coins in circulation in the UK.
