Quote from: Alan71 on January 17, 2021, 11:28:59 PMIt's probably me being thick, but I'm not sure I understand the difference between "collectors coins" and "commemorative coins". Can you clarify?
Quote from: Alan71 on January 18, 2021, 12:41:51 AMAh, I see. So these will be £5 coins then? That's good, I don't collect those! Seems odd that Beatrix Potter, Paddington etc are "only" worthy of 50p coins while the Mr Men get the £5 treatment though.
Quote from: FosseWay on January 19, 2021, 07:21:40 AMI think they included the farthing because of the wren - it's more appealing in the design.
Quote from: Deeman on January 19, 2021, 09:33:01 AMTotally agree, and the halfpenny is also worth noting as these two coins departed from heraldic / royalty themes. I just wish RM would issue designs for the currency range that normal 'folk' can associate with.
Quote from: eurocoin on January 17, 2021, 05:27:18 PMDisappointing news for all those looking forward to the Mr Men coins. In contrary to my previous message they will be collectors coins, not commemorative coins. 3 different coins will be issued this year for the commemoration.
Quote from: eurocoin on January 21, 2021, 11:24:21 AMBy this point she will already have seen the theme and the designs and not have objected to that so the official proclamation will just formalize that. The royal proclamation is a mere formality. Officially there is a chance that the Queen will not approve the release of the coins, she can of course change her mind until the proclamation has been approved. That would mean that the Mint will have to cancel the release but that chance is extremely small. As long as the coins aren't being issued before the Queen has approved them, officially there is no problem. However, announcing the theme before the Queen has officially approved it could be interpreted as the Mint thinking they are above the Queen. For that reason I don't like this at all and find it questionable behaviour. It is not the first time that The Royal Mint has done this.
Quote from: eurocoin on February 04, 2021, 07:29:47 PMConservative MP Caroline Nokes has today asked Jacob Rees-Mogg in parliament to use his influence so that a commemorative coin will be issued for the passing of Sir Tom Moore. Rees-Mogg, who is involved in the official approval process of commemorative coins, welcomed the idea and hoped to receive a request for approval of such coin from The Royal Mint in due course.
