As I have said before, such large numbers are grossly prone to error. I repeat my maxim:

There are only two important mintage figures: enough, or hardly any.



Look at the 1933 penny. People are still debating whether there are 5, 6 or 7 in existence.  :laughing:

2 Pound coin mintages – the revised figure for the Fire of London type is a clearer reason for me only ever having had one of those from change. As for the mintage figures for the Shakespeare “skull” type and the “crown” type – those details make clear that the mint either did have or they now have these two figures mixed up.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

The Royal Mint has restored the pages containing mintage figures on its website.

Have they subsequently been removed? I cannot locate the pages.

Is that hardly any or enough though?
It's enough for a scarce issue ;D

That link does not give mintage figures (apart from 2017) for coins intended for circulation. Even the issued 10p to ½p listing doesn't work now.

You need to click the 'Learn more' button on that page.

Many thanks eurocoin for solving my dilemma. Totally overlooked that link.
