Maybe not lying but at least of providing incorrect information. There is being said the information was not exclusive, which is in contrary to what I wrote and which is also incorrect. You present what a member told you as facts.
You perhaps should have given it some thought before you made your previous post.  As moderator of this particular forum (though andyg as the global mod out-ranks me  :) ), I ask you to not spoil it for yourself again.  Remember the conditions you agreed to.

I accept you’re not going to give sources, but that does mean others will try and look for them and question why none are (yet) to be found.

All if did was ask about the Royal Proclamation on here and on a closed Facebook page, since I was interested in reading what it said.

So what false information did I provide about the A-Z 10 pence coins?

My message was already edited 25 minutes before you posted this.  ;)

You perhaps should have given it some thought before you made your previous post.

While I consider my credibility to be very important, I would say I would agree to that.

I accept you’re not going to give sources, but that does mean others will try and look for them and question why none are (yet) to be found.

Of course they can do so. I hope the provided background information gives a better understanding of the reasons behind it. If anyone has any doubts about something I have posted they can point it out in the topic or send a PM to me and I will be more than happy to help.

OK, thanks for that, eurocoin.

Can I suggest we all get back to the discussion?  Unless we get to 1 April and still nothing has been announced, I’m willing to accept that no one would post anything on here without reliable sources, and that naming sources could jeopardise future information from them.

I purchased an Australian 2015 set of coins with an uncirculated 50-cent piece for the birth of Princess Charlotte.  Included with the set are nine frosted uncirculated colorized one dollar coins that spell out 'Charlotte.'  I wonder if the forthcoming British 10 pence issues of A through Z will be used for similar items.  I am not partial to colorized coins, but the Royal Mint did a nice job for the 2002 Commonwealth Games two-pound coins in sets and the five-pound crowns for the 2012 Olympiad.

These appear to be the themes that some of the letter coins will refer to. Not all of these were checked and confirmed to me.

A = Angel of the North
B = Bond
C = Cricket
F = Fish & chips
H = Houses of Parliament
P = Postbox
S = Stonehenge
W = Westminster
Y = Yale
Z = Zebra crossing

I was right on the Zebra crossing then, though it was quite an easy guess.  X still not known though.  I imagine it will be contrived.

Well, not, if there is a warrior princess with the name ''Xenia'' somewhere in british history  ;D

Xenon comes to my mind since it was discovered in England by the Scottish chemist William Ramsay and English chemist Morris Travers in September 1898.

I think you’re onto something there.  I’d like to say, “I’d not thought of that”, but in reality I don’t think I’d ever heard of it until I saw your post!  :D

I think we have a winner for the letter ''X''  8)

When I was at school X was always for X-Ray ;D
There were indeed several Brits involved with early research into X rays though so it's not as daft as it might seem.

I must admit that when I first looked up x-ray, I didn’t read further enough down.  A German physicist is usually credited with discovering them, but you’re right, it was a Brit that (apparently unknowingly) was the first to produce them.  Possibly two contenders for X then.

That "German" would be Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen. Well, he was born in Prussia, grew up in the Netherlands where they kicked him out of school. :)  As for that alphabet series, sounds like a mint's money making plan to me, hehe. But if the designs are attractive ...
