I have attached below images of the old reverses (left) and new reverses (right) so you can from now on see yourself if a coin has the old or new reverse. You have to look at the figure of the denomination. All pointed corners of the figure have been made round on the ones with the new reverse.

Aha, OK, thanks  :)

In that case, Pabitra, can you show the reverse of one of your 2019 1 cent coins alongside an earlier one?

Hope Eurocoin's reply has answered your query.

Every country has not given up on small coins

Estonia is still minting them

this would seem to be the two versions of the Spanish 1 ct?

The coin on the right is in higher relief than the coin on left.  I've only found low relief coins for 2018.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

Seems Slovakkian Kremnica Mint haven't changed, as at my view in Estonian 1c 2019 one looks like old style.
Here, left is 2012 and right 2019 1 cent.

I believe the reason for using old design is cost.
If the annual mintage is small, single die is adequate.

If, like in Germany, the mintage is large then several dies crack during the minting. Redesign of coin with softer rounding and edges on the numerals, prolongs the life of die in use.
