I have not found anything interesting for a while just the standard 50p's.
Then I get this today, it has been a good few years since I got 1 of these in my change.

Jersey 1998 2 coin

I've just had my first 2017 5p in change!

So far I've had the following 2017 dated coins in change:
1p, 5p, 50p (shield), 50p (Newton), 50p (4 x Beatrix Potter) and 1.

No 2018 coins yet.

I've heard of people finding them, but nobody I know personally has ever seen one in circulation. I live on the coast and there are lots of small seaside resorts near me where there are penny arcades with 'double falls' type machines that use 10p coins. I keep going in and staring at them and have never seen a single alphabet 10p among thousands of coins - and these coins should stand out as they have a distinctive obverse as well as different reverses!

I've just had my first 2018 British coin in change - a pound coin.

I had a good look in the 2p and 10p 'falls' machines at my local penny arcades today. I must have seen hundreds, if not thousands of each denomination. Not a single 2017 or 2018 coin of either denomination, and definitely no alphabet 10p's! The only moderately interesting coins were a couple of Channel Islands ones, but they weren't in playable positions!

Just a couple of coins over the holiday period, fortunately 1 is worth more than face value as the other is worth less than face value.


A 2002 commonwealth games 2 - Scotland flag
A 2015 Fake 2 coin




The 2015 fake is pretty good as far as the Reverse goes but Liz is still a mushy mess, 11.94g
