Quote: andyg - it looks as if 2017 2p coins are at long last getting into circulation - a friend in County Durham e-mailed me to say he'd been given two shiny ones together in change yesterday! I'm going to cycle to the local amusement arcade later today to see if I can spot any in the penny pusher machines!
I'll have to start scanning the amusement arcades for a 2021 now! I think this is the longest I've ever had to wait after the year of issue before I got a decimal coin in change, apart from commemorative £2 coins and the occasional NCLT coins that I've found. I remember clearly getting a 2004 2p in change in February 2004!
