The 10p example I gave was consistent with what I experienced in terms of getting coins in change. I've never known it to be the case that coins are always issued in the year they are dated. Often it becomes obvious the following year that they are still being issued. At one point the latest date wouldn't start appearing until December (increased demand because of Christmas). With the 10p example, it was extremely obvious that coins I was getting well into 2000 were newly issued. I'm afraid you are definitely wrong on this.
