2019 coins in circulation
« on: February 23, 2019, 10:08:21 PM »
The 2019-dated 1 pound coin has now entered circulation.

Production of shield 10p and shield 50p coins for circulation has started.

I got a 2019 £1 in my change a couple of days ago. It's the earliest I can ever remember getting a coin from the current year.

The A-Z 10p appear to be being issued as usual in bags - So far, unlike the 2018 dated issue, they don't seem to be muddled in with large quantities of old 10p (which included Copper-Nickel ones going back to 1992!) and there seem to be very few different letters in each bag.

In those circumstances, I could imagine a circle of UK coin traders, exchanging different types. All it would take is an organiser. This site is open for private and public communication among members.

Hi,

a long time ago I passed here, since I'm not too happy with the file size limits, but I was whiling around and thought I would say hello, since my variant documentations are too big for your limits, sic!

I have the five 2 euro coins from Germany (Bundesrat) from 2019 and to top that of, also a 2019 25 cents (Lovell) from the US. As usual nothing from the UK.... hic.

Ciao

When asked about the Royal Mint's commemorative coin for this special day, special no longer, Phillip Hammond said that he doesn't know if the coin has been minted, and if it has, then they will be collector pieces. Interesting that he didn't suggest instead that the coins would be destroyed or never see the light of day

Since we know that they have not been minted bar a few specimens that have no date on them. Also the Brexit 50p's were never intended to be released for general circulation. They will be released whenever Brexit happens, if it happens.

Nothing significant as I know itís already been reported here, but I received both a 2019 £1 coin and a 2019 Dent 50p in change today.  Significant for me as I still havenít received a single 2018-dated coin in change apart from the £1 (which doesnít count as itís still a new coin and possibly still replacing old coins withdrawn in 2017).  Apart from 1p, 5p, £1 and a couple of Beatrix Potter 50p coins, I havenít had any other 2017 coins in change either.

Itís unusual for higher-value standard coins to be issued this early in the year.  50p coins and £1 coins in the past have usually been issued towards the end of the year (apart from the issue of the new £1 in 2017). 

What does surprise me is that itís a Dent 50p thatís been issued.  It suggests a decision not to issue more recent commemoratives is deliberate, and not because of low demand for new coins.

Perhaps, ''side effects'' of the declining use of the £2 coins, which means more of 50p and the new £1 are being needed?

Royal Mint's plan of ripping of coin collectors by not issuing commemorative 50p coins into circulation becomes obvious...

My thoughts are that Dent's 50p will remain in circulation to meet demand whereas commemoratives tend to be hoarded by people when introduced into circulation.

I think it's more likely a declining use of coins overall in the UK, there has been a big switch to plastic over the last two years - especially as contactless payments have made it more acceptable to pay small amounts on debit cards.

Have a few £1 coins, 1 x 20p and 1 x Dent 50p.

Have probably found more by myself for 2019 than I have for 2018...
