The second 50 years of the 50p set will be released this Thursday June 6.
Which makes sense, considering it contains the 1994 D-Day design, and itís the 75th anniversary of D-Day on Thursday 6 June.

I see that tours are now strictly limited to one per day.
A tad expensive at £6.90 for SYO Sherlock 50p.

The Royal Mint produced approximately 1,000 trial strikes for the Brexit 50p. These pieces have either a wrong or no Brexit date on them.

The trial strikes have the wrong Brexit date (29 March 2019) on them. The other side has the standard obverse that is being used for UK coinage. The pieces were minted on standard 50p blanks.

I wonder whether there will be a commemorative coin for England winning the Cricket World Cup.

Update: That didn't take long. The Lion of England 5 pounds coin that was first issued in 2017 in the Queen's Beast Series, then again last year, will once more be re-issued with the date 2019 for this occasion. ::)

Not what you would call cricket specific.

Looks like RM have had a rethink. The £5 Lion of England offer appears to have been removed.
Wonder if they are going to consider a proper commemorative issue?

The Royal Mint's FB post about the coin hasn't been deleted and it is still possible to register interest for it so I don't think the 2019-dated Lion of England 5 pounds coin for this occasion has been cancelled.

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 hope they make the mintmark a tad bigger. It was rather miniscule on the £1 coin.

There will be another Newton 50p as part of the Innovators of Science series. Whether that coin will be issued this year is unknown. One of the other coins in the series will be a 50p for Charles Babbage.

At least 1 further 50p coin in that series will still be released this year but it is unknown which one.

A proclamation was issued in Feb for a new inscription (date change) on the Isaac Newton coin. Nothing issued to date for Babbage. So a reasonable assumption would be that a Newton 50p will be the one to appear this year.

Proclamations issued in April for the two new Paddington coins, but nothing yet for the Snowman & Snowdog.

The Paddington at the Tower of London 50p coin will soon be available for sale. It will probably be released August 13.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer has just announced on the Andrew Marr Show that the Brexit 50p coin will not be released into general circulation. It will be in sets and packs only.

Sajid Javid has scrapped the plan of Philip Hammond to release the Brexit 50p in sets only. Javid has asked the mint to produce millions in time for the Brexit date.

Are they playing it safe and not having the 31 October 2019 date on it?  Boris may say itís do-or-die but the chances of it happening then - if at all - seem quite remote.
