Very pleased to get this yesterday. It's the first small-size Falklands 10p I've ever had in change! The Machin head looks a bit strange on a small-size 10p, as it was only ever seen on the large UK ones...

My finds of note lately are a 2003 DNA £2, 2015 Britannia £2 and 2016 WW1 army £2.
Also got 2019 £1, 50p and 20p.

Still missing these special designs:
2015 Magna Carta £2
2015 Royal Navy £2 (4th portrait)
2016 Shakespeare Comedies £2
2016 Squirrel Nutkin 50p
2016 Mrs Tiggy-Winkle 50p
2018 Mrs Tittlemouse 50p
Also virtually every alphabet 10p, though I've fully accepted I'll never get them all from circulation.

Collector28 - I also find the Squirrel Nutkin 50p very elusive, but I find the Mrs Tiggy-Winkle extremely common. I wonder if some coins were released in different parts of the country?

I cleared out all the 50p's in my local bank yesterday (they only had £90 worth), and these were the best finds:

My first-ever 2018 Mrs Tittlemouse, two 2017 Peter Rabbits, two 2011 Olympics (Volleyball and Sailing) and a 2017 Shield reverse.

I've heard theories that they were released in certain areas. Just realised I omitted Mrs Tittlemouse from the "haven't got" list.

I did manage to put together 5 complete sets of Olympic 50ps. Though I had a very good source for them. Have a few very nearly complete sets, too. Haven't seen a single one circulating for ages though. Probably a bit excessive but I just couldn't bring myself to part with any :p

A lot of coin collecting from circulation is just being in the right place at the right time - a good few years ago I was in Tesco and the cashier opened a brand new bag of Charles Dickens £2 coins. Quickly got my dad to buy 5 from him (plus we got 2 more in change). I know they aren't especially rare, but the sight of 7 almost flawless coins of this design is really quite pleasing
