The most recent £1 coins for St Helena are dated 2015, and before that, 2006, so I’m surprised they’ve exhausted their supplies already.

another interesting snippet from that page...

Quote
Falkland Island coins are in unofficial circulation on St Helena. They are identical in size to their local equivalents, but bear different designs. They cannot, however, be exchanged at the Bank of St Helena and may not be accepted in all shops.

Likewise Saint Helena coins used to circulate on the Falkland Islands, but I was recently told by a collector who visited the islands that this is now no longer the case. "It appears they have been taken out of circulation".

No order for Saint Helena and Ascension 1 pound coins was made in 2018, nor were any other denominations ordered in 2018. This has today turned out to be a misinformation of the Saint Helena government.

They are considering whether or not to issue a 12-sided pound coin and possible design changes for the 1 pound coin are part of that consideration too.
