Quote from: agoodall on July 06, 2021, 03:53:53 AMI want to collect with the aim of completing series but the increase in new issues over the last decade has forced me to scale back to just the uncirculated base metal issues.
QuoteNow the number of new £5s plus the mint's new enthusiasm for coloured versions has made even this a burden.
QuoteIf £5 coins must be issued I would prefer them to be smaller, maybe half crown sized.
QuoteI'd also like to see the 10 pence coin used more for special issues, particularly if they were also issued for circulation. I thought the 10p alphabet series were a disaster but the recent wildlife 10ps issued by Guernsey show what could be done.

Since you mention it, I will say that Canada was the first major country to adopt an Isle of Man approach to commemoratives, producing more coin issues in a year than the annual stamp issues of many countries. Eventually, the Royal Mint, RAM and others were obliged to compete, and that's when the rot set in.
