    Do you know if any ordinary coins have been issued this year apart from £1 coin?

      Hi Michael, can you explain what you mean when you say ‘ordinary’? Do you mean definitive designs? Thanks Luke

        Yes as I have not seen ANY coins dated 2017 apart from the new £1

        Hi Michael, We cannot be 100% certain as The Royal Mint do not release this information, but we haven’t seen any other than the 12-sided £1 coin. Thanks Luke
