Some of the annual sets mistakenly contain a 2020-dated Britannia 2 pound coin.

All of the people who received a Decimal Day 50p pack with the incorrect date 2020 printed on the booklet in the pack of The Westminster Collection, will receive a free correct pack mid March.

Looks like the Mary Anning reptiles are only available coloured.

No, on the Royal Mint website are also non-coloured versions avaliable. First one already avaliable, second will be issued in March and third in April as stated on website. Coloured are exxclusivly avaliable on Royal Mint (so like with 2020 series - non-coloured will be avaliable probably in dark blue packaging and not coloured not).

Missed that! Thanks for the correction.

For non-colour carded ones...looks like both Westminster and Koin Club are selling the dinosaur 50 pence coins.

Kena, I didn't know this prior to reading about them, but they are actually prehistoric reptiles, not dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs are characterised by having an upright stance, with legs perpendicular to their body.

This week I received this email from RM:
"Since shipping the 2021 United Kingdom Brilliant Uncirculated Annual Coin Set, we have become aware of a minor spelling error on the packaging.
We pride ourselves on offering unrivalled quality in our coin ranges, and would like to apologise for this error. Should you wish to exchange your product please log onto our returns portal to create a free returns label. Once we have received your returned set we will provide you with a replacement 2021 United Kingdom Brilliant Uncirculated Annual Coin Set within a few days."

Tell me what error we are talking about.

The error is that the packaging says 'Televison' which should of course have been 'Television'.

Thank you very much! Indeed, there is such a typo. )))

For an extra £10 you can have a bit of Olympic colour. Limited issue 12,021. What is the point of such an absurd figure?

Presumably 2021 as per this year, which probably isn't enough so they stuck another 10k on.  I've seen such mintage figures being marketed by them before.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

To train mintage hounds like you not to trust mintage figures.  :D
