I have certainly been wondering about this aswell. Unfortunately nobody knows. There seems to be no good reason for the mint to delete it. It is another example of one of these vague things that are currently happening at the mint, like the Jane Austen and Aviation coins.

After quite a bit of searching recently I found this copy of the list in a dark corner of the internet, so that can be used in the meantime. Once the mintage figures reappear on the mint's website it may be interesting to check if any figures have changed.

Excellent, well found, eurocoin, thanks.

Perhaps if it does come back, they’ll change the format.  I say it every time but the one they use is awful.  The 50p and £2 coin types each need to be listed together by date.  As it is there are spare lines that just aren’t needed.

The Mrs Tittlemouse 50p is now in circulation. It is likely that no further 2018-dated commemoratives will be released into circulation.

If there are no 2018 £2 commemoratives to be released into circulation, then I suppose its a reasonable assumption that the 2019 & 2020 Captain Cook coins will likewise not be released.

An unkown amount of blanks for new 1 pound coins has recently ended up in circulation. All of the pieces were found in bags of 2018-dated 1 pound coins obtained from the post offices. Several people reported having come across them. The blanks were apparently not dicovered by quality control at the mint.

As more and more of them start to appear, upon closer examination it turns out that they are not strictly planchets but rather very weakly struck, images below.
