Yes, I was wondering if the Snowman 50p is the last new UK coin issue for 2019.  I’m assuming so, but these days it seems like there’s almost one a week and it’s hard to keep track...

There will still be a Christmas 5 pound coin this year too. It will depict a Christmas stocking filled with toys.

Thanks.  That’s good then, as I’ve long since stopped collecting £5 coins!

Maybe there is still the possibility of the Snowman & Snowdog making a surprise appearance nearer to Xmas. It was mentioned earlier in the year, albeit RM appear to have changed their minds and issued a second Snowman 50p instead.

The Royal Mint is going to issue more special editions of certain coins with their mintmark on them, like the new 1 pound coin a few years ago of which a limited edition was released with its mintmark. It is expected that (amongst others) future Strike Your Own coins will have The Royal Mint's mintmark on them.

I don't think any have been issued as yet with the mintmark. Are any scheduled?

There was the Britannia 50p with a mintmark to celebrate 50th anniversary of 50p coin.

Since writing my message, no new products have been issued with the specific mintmark. I currently do not yet know of specific future products that will have the mintmark on them. As previously mentioned, if I have information you can be sure that I post it immediately on here.

I didn't consider the Spirograph style mark as a mintmark. I took it as a way of explaining the Reuleaux polygon.

The sheduled issuance of the Christmas 5 pounds coin that was going to depict a Christmas stocking filled with toys has allegedly been cancelled. Early this year formal royal approval had already been given for the issuance of the coin.

Some of the BU packs of the special science edition of the 2019-dated 50 years of the 50p Britannia coin (with privy mark and markings on the rim) contain the normal 2019-dated Britannia 50p.

The 2019-dated D-Day 2 pound coin in BU quality is currently available for 2 pounds (free postage) from the Westminster Collection here.

The 2019-dated Gruffalo and the mouse 50p coin in BU quality is also currently available from the Westminster Collection for 50p (free postage) here.

Thanks eurocoin.  Although I already have both these two and the Brexit coin, it’s worth buying again at face value with free postage!  Bizarrely, if you search these three coins, they come up at normal price.  They only come up at face value from your links.

Many thanks eurocoin. Both items ordered as well as the Brexit issue.
Will RM provide the coins to Westminster in a timely manner?
Still awaiting the VE £2 offer from May.

I hope you also ordered the Megalosaurus 50p, which I added later.
The first confirmation emails have now been sent out. The 50p coins are sheduled to be sent out on September 4.
As for the 2 pound coin this is currently unknown.

I did order the Megalosaurus 50p, eurocoin.
This morning I received confirmation emails about the delivery of the Brexit coin and, at last, the VE issue. Confirm both scheduled for despatch on the 4th.
These heads-up on such offers are very much appreciated.
