    I’ve been to Dartford, Lewisham, Woolwich, City of London, Glasgow, Largs, Margate and I haven’t found one Coronation coin, so clearly I do need to go to Cardiff or Birmingham!

    I found the lettered 10p coins in the City of London and Glasgow City Center.

    Happy, continued, searching everyone!
