    2018 portcullis penny

    Could it be collectors are over looking this coin and not seeing the wood for the trees? although the coin is stamped in silver is not clear this coin is quite special in that from this year the mint has moved away from the circulated design of the part shield and gone retro making the coin just that little more special. it's just an heads up for you out there looking to invest,this also applies for the 2019 silver gift penny which is all so of the portcullis design.

    The figure will come in for the 2017 shield 50p paddy,im waiting to see that one for myself. The coin is very light on the ground.

    In 2009 i never found a decent pound coin and i think i put two in the box at collectable grade 27 milloin minted. In 2010 the minting figure was double that and i found bucket loads,this to me makes little sense as do the minting figures on many occasions. I think its quite probable that there is a difference in the NO. of coins circulated to that minted.

    It took me four years to find one of those coins in my change post 2008 and to date i have managed to collect two thats regardless of the minting figure. Sarcerty is linked to availability is it not.

    Think of the 2008 10p with the lion and the five pence with the thistle, i bet those are propper scarce by now i only had two of the 10ps in my change anyway they were right hard to come by. Impossible now id say.

    All the ten pences and five pences pre 2011 are being recalled in and melted down. Just cheak your change for any given week period and see how many pre 2011 five pences and ten pences you can find,my experience tells me they are coming quite hard to come across especially the latter ones.

    I have a feeling there will plenty of the alphabet coins turned out for circulation and my betting is the scarce one will be the 27th coin on the list the common shield 10p. It may start a craze of, i beleave with the mints recall of ten pences and fives pre 2011 it will make some of those coins hard to come by for date runs. Think of the 2010 shield 10p stamped and then recalled the very next year leaving little time for them to end up down the back of settees, collectors coins of the future.

    Also you must take into accout over 50 million 50p coins have be stamped with the beatrix potters and the isaac newton coin for 2017. None of the new mint bags with the Jeremy fishers and tom kittens are showing any signs of 2017 shield being amongst them. With 50 million 50ps the quota may have well more than been met.

    The 2017 shield 50p is looking thin on the ground, the idea is pick coins out before the rush.

    What is your opinion of HS2?

    Its an infrastructure project of some worth but one which apparently we can only build with Chinese investment. Therefore id say its an indicator as to the state of the nation.
