The design of the 2020-dated Christmas 50p.

Nice design.  Presumably snowmen can’t catch COVID-19 so not breaking any rules, though I hope the hat, scarf and nose have been thoroughly sanitised before they made him.

Doesn't look like the release was postponed since they went on sale today.

If anyone is still looking for coin boxes to store the enormous amount of commemorative coins, Lidl UK will have them starting tomorrow. They are good quality and very popular amongst coin collectors. The boxes are one of Lidl UK's best selling seasonal products, so I was told.

The Royal Mint has announced that the Hylaeosaurus 50p will not be a Strike Your Own coin. It was announced that it would be the SYO but shortly after that The Royal Mint Experience closed. The Royal Mint Experience will not reopen until next year. The Royal Mint shop will reopen on December 15.

The Royal Mint has suspended the sale of all 2020-dated Snowman 50p coins. The reason for this is unknown.

The 2020-dated Christmas 50p coins will no longer become available. It remains unknown why The Royal Mint so suddenly stopped selling them. Certainly as the sale of the 2019-dated Christmas 50p coins was not stopped.

Its obviously nothing to do with any infringement associated with the image because the bone china money box is still for sale.

So we have an 18-day enigma.

The Diversity 50p has won the Royal Mint's Coin Of The Year edition for 2020. Runner up was the Brexit 50p followed by the Remembrance Day 5 pound coin. It is obvious that the vote was rigged by some quinoachewer. The first 2 are monstrosities.

How was the poll held? If it was an online poll/survey, then there is 101% chance that it gets rigged. One can even hire Chinese or Russian bots to turn the results in someone's favor... >:D

My nomination, VE Day, came 13th. 170 votes, 2.46% of poll.

Obviously those who voted for the winner and runner-up have no appreciation of design aesthetics.

I think it's pretty obvious that the polling was political. Not many people actually bothered to vote, but that two coins that are political are numbers one and two and their designs are, at best boring.

All post offices in the UK that sell Royal Mint products are going to hold a major sale starting 11 January. The discounts will be on all pre-2021 coins they sell and will be very large. Starting at approximately 50% but most much more, upto 90%. I have a list of all discounted prices so if anyone would like to know the price of specific products or a copy of the entire list, send me a PM.
