I went to the bank a few days ago and they had no 50p's!
So instead I got some £2 coins, 20p's, 10p's and pennies.
It's the first time I've ever got a £100 sack of 10p coins:
I finished sorting through the coins today. It took a long time, despite assistance from Pablo:
By and large it was all a bit disappointing.
The 10p's were a weird selection, with a much higher than usual proportion of pre-2011 cupro-nickel coins. There were no alphabet coins but I did snag a couple of additions for my collection: a 2004 Falklands 10p and a 2001 Croatian 2 kune! I also found a 1998 Falklands 10p and a 2000 Gibraltar.
The 20p's produced one addition to my collection - a 2016 Jersey.
The £2 coins included a reasonable mix of commemoratives but nothing rare.
The 1p coins contained nothing exceptional - but I did get the last coin I needed to complete a set of 1p coins from circulation - 1981. What's more, it was virtually Uncirculated with lots of lustre!
Updated progress report:
Note that the Jersey 5p in the above picture was found on the road by my local gas station yesterday!
Coins I am still looking for:
10p: 2018 Alphabet A-L, N-S and U-Z. 2019 Alphabet: A, B, D-L, N-W, Y, Z.
20p: 1992 small head variety, 2020 (plus 2008 undated error mule)
50p. 2009 Kew Gardens, 2012 Olympics Football, Rowing and Tennis, 2020 Shield(?), 2022 Jubilee (and Pride?)
£2. 2002 Commonwealth Games (4 types), 2012 Olympic Handover, 2013 London Transport logo.
