Quote from: quaziright on March 29, 2019, 07:34:47 PMWhen 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
Quote from: Alan71 on April 12, 2019, 05:39:03 PMIt's 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).
Quote from: Alan71 on April 12, 2019, 05:39:03 PMWhat does surprise me is that it's a Dent 50p that's been issued. It suggests a decision not to issue more recent commemoratives is deliberate, and not because of low demand for new coins.
Quote from: redlock on April 12, 2019, 08:12:08 PMPerhaps, ''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...
