    I bought the Change Checker collector album but can’t find any of the coins in my change to put in it ! They don’t seem to issue enough these days and thats probably because they have too many different designs out each year !

    Hi, Does anyone know what the mintage of 2016 pound coins is likely to be. I am aware that none will be released into general circulation.

    Hopefully the fire of London coin might circulate in my area, but not holding my breath, haven’t seen any Shakespeare, Royal Navy, battle of Hastings, Britannia plus a few more. Am trying to get them by swopping but it seems lots of people want these coins.
    Moan over..Merry Coin Collecting Christmas.
