The 2015 coin search update: where are they?

Back in November 2014, the Royal Mint unveiled the new themes and designs for all 2015 coins intended for circulation.

As you can imagine, this caused a lot of excitement and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on them. In a poll, we asked change checkers to vote which design was their favourite with the clear winner being the 2015 Royal Navy £2.

So where are these 2015 commemorative coins?

The 2015 Battle of Britain 50p



The Battle of Britain 50p was released into circulation a few months ago, and a few lucky change checkers have managed to get their hands on them. Others, are still looking but we’re sure they’ll turn up soon.


The 2015 Royal Coat of Arms £1 Coin



The other commemorative coin that has proved to be very popular among collectors was the 2015 Royal Coat of Arms £1. It was revealed in December that the final batch of round £1 coins came off the production line at the Royal Mint, meaning that the only 2016 pound coins available to collectors will be Brilliant uncirculated version of the £1 coin.


Change Checkers are still searching for the 2015 Royal Navy, Britannia and Magna Carta £2 Coins

It is our understanding that the remaining 2015 commemorative coins will finally be released into circulation in March, so you may be able to find them in your change in just a matter days.

So keep checking your change over the coming weeks – you could be one of the first to find these £2 coins!

    I have managed to get a Battle of Britain 50p but no £2 coins yet, and for the next two months will be ordering £2 coins and 50p coins for the post office we currently own, if I obtain any extras I will contact Yasmin to see how to swop them. But I have found a £2 Mary Rose coin with no date on it.

      I have 3 of the battle of Britain but note the date is on top whereas the coin in year packs etc is the old head and the date on the bottom.
