I went to the bank today and got £250 in 50p coins, £20 in 20p coins, £30 in 10p coins, £40 in £1 coins, £60 in £2 coins and £1 in pennies.
I was completely skunked with the 50p and £2 coins - not a single commemorative! It's fairly normal to get no commemoratives in 30 £2 coins, but this is the first time I've ever had a bag of 500 50p coins with no commemoratives! I would have expected about 30 in a batch this size. I imagine I must have had someone's dump, but the coin distribution seemed fairly normal otherwise. I did find two of the scarce 2017 'shield' definitive coins, which are scarcer than many commemoratives!
The £1 and 20p coins held no surprises. The bag of pennies included only the third 2020 one I've ever seen, and there was a really nice 2001 that looked as if it had come straight from the Mint. Surprisingly, there was not a single 1971 penny. This is the first time I've sorted through a bag of 100 pennies and not found one!
The 10p coins were more interesting! I tried to get more but they could only let me have £30 worth. I was very surprised and delighted to find two 2019 Alphabet coins - a C for Cricket and an X for X Marks the Spot. There were several 2020s and 2021s.
Coins I am still looking for:
10p: 2018 Alphabet A-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
£2. 2002 Commonwealth Games (4 types), 2012 Olympic Handover, 2013 London Transport logo.
