Roger Hargreaves' Little Miss series of children's books commenced publication in Sep 1981.
After his death in 1988, his son, Adam, took over the Little Miss stories. Little Miss Scary is the 31st book in the series and the first one created by Adam Hargreaves.

Looking at the simplistic designs of the Mr Men, Little Miss coins - wouldn't they have been well suited for a 10p series issue?

That's true, but have you ever seen any of the previous (alphabet / A to Z) series of 10 pence coins in circulation anyway? I have not.

Same here, but I do know a few who have had the odd letter. Then again, it was a pathetic quantity that went into circulation.

The Royal Mint will later this year also release a special domed version of the coin. The first time they issue a domed coin.

From what I understand it will be curved and yes, if that is indeed the case there is a topic for such coins.

1,150th anniversary of the coronation of Alfred the Great.

Alfred the Great £5 struck to pay tribute to this visionary monarch who built the foundations for Britain's future. The coin is inspired by a priceless Anglo-Saxon relic, the Alfred Jewel, and was created by the sculptor John Bergdahl.
The cupro-nickel version has a grained edge, the silver version has the edge inscription "AELFRED MEC HEHT GEWYRCAN", which translates as 'ALFRED ORDERED ME TO BE MADE'.

Why couldn't people draw properly in those days?
