with both the above comments about the A to Z 10p coins!

I went into a bank in central London today and got 50 in 50p coins. No luck with my two missing Beatrix Potters (still looking for a 2018 Peter Rabbit and Flopsy Bunny) but quite surprised and pleased to get three Olympics: Shooting, Handball and Triathlon. The Triathlon is one of the scarcer ones (mintage 1,163,500) and it's virtually BU with hardly any signs of having been in circulation!

@NumisRob I didn't think the 2018 Peter Rabbit was for circulation, but having done some research it seems it actually was. Probably not very many were released though. There's also one for 2019 that is NIFC, I believe - though The Great British Coin Hunt is circulating 400 of its own accord.

I'm optimistic about getting Flopsy Bunny, Mrs Tittlemouse and Paddington at St Paul's Cathedral, I'm expecting the 2018 Peter Rabbit to have a very low mintage (again to encourage people to buy them from the mint, making them more money).

3 Olympics in 50 worth of 50p coins is quite a high amount - I'd be surprised if I even found 1! Not that I need any more, I've got a good few complete sets already

Also, what are these Olympic 10p coins?

Oops - changed it!

Yes, I was really surprised to get three Olympic 50p coins in 50 worth.

I got the 2019 Peter Rabbit 50p for face value at the Change Checker giveaway in Plymouth on 13 April. I've never seen one in circulation.

I've sorted through over 8,000 50p's in the past year and have found two Tailor of Gloucester and one Mrs Tittlemouse. I've had 42 Olympics and have nearly completed my second set of them from circulation.

I think a lot of the coins in the Potter series are being hoarded in a similar way to the Olympic series.

@redlock, it is worse than the Royal Canadian Mint. So many countries are issuing so many 'circulating' coins that I have given up on most.

Some decent finds of late!

Firstly, I was walking to the bus stop in the pouring rain, feeling rather annoyed at life (some tough personal circumstances of late). Bent down to pick up a 10p on the ground (hey, they all add up) and was very surprised to see a 2018 W 10p staring up at me! Brightened my day a bit at least.

Next, I hawk-eyed a 2019 50p obverse in a pot at a refreshments stand, asked for it in change and it was the 2019 Paddington at St. Paul's Cathedral 50p!!

I've now got all the Paddington 50ps, just missing a few of the Potters. Got the Church treasurer looking out for me, she found me a Sherlock Holmes and a Tailor Of Gloucester 50p - got both of them but I always welcome duplicates

Also, the same friend as before got the P.A.T.C 50p on the same day as me and sent me a photo, have a feeling that might work it's way to me as he's no interest whatsoever in coins. I am of course absolutely fine with this
