Quote from: hertfordian on June 13, 2011, 07:23:41 PMFollowing on from the Cape Verde example, would it be fair to say that a similar situation existed in the UK back in 1998 when there were three different design 50p's issued that year and all of these circulated - e.g. the circulation (Britannia) version, the NHS 50th anniversary coin and the EU 25th anniversary...Ian
Quote from: Bimat on June 13, 2011, 04:23:03 PMThey indeed circulated. My question is: Are these coins considered commemorative coins or just one year type definitive coins?Aditya
Quote from: andyg on June 13, 2011, 08:12:16 PMFM produced sets for the Cook Islands, they used the normal designs - except for the 20 cent - Why?
Quote from: andyg on June 13, 2011, 08:12:16 PMJamaica - a set of standard designs by the FM Mint but with a different style of coat of atms.Also a set for the 21st anniversary of independence in 1983 (NCLT)
Quote from: andyg on June 13, 2011, 08:12:16 PMThe Panama FM sets were indeed NCLT.
Quote from: andyg on June 13, 2011, 08:12:16 PMCanada 1967 sets did circulate, as did Hong Kong 1997.
Quote from: andyg on June 13, 2011, 08:12:16 PMBarbados has a set (also by the FM) for the 10th anniversary of independence in 1976, only the 1 cent circulated - the rest sets only...
Quote from: coffeetime on June 13, 2011, 08:26:54 PMI don't regard the amended coat of arms as majorly significant. Yes, the 1983 had different legends. According to my old catalogue, there is also a 1985 25c commemorating the 25th anniversary?!!
Quote from: Figleaf on June 26, 2011, 03:32:31 PMI wonder how many of these "one date" series are actually frozen dates...
Quote from: Figleaf on June 26, 2011, 03:32:31 PMThinking of the Dutch 1948 series here that was struck with the same date for three years (which was all the queen's fault.)
QuoteAnother reason for freezing the date is cost, especially among developing countries. Dates, once a control mechanism, don't serve much of a purpose any more.
