I am beginning to doubt all the figures released by the Royal Mint on their website. I was looking at the numbers for 2017 50ps - according to their list there were no Royal Shield ones that year - but I have one and I don't believe they are rare. Mine did not come out of a set I am pretty sure - I picked it up in loose change last year. So what is going on?

PS - I also see that they say no £1 coins were issued in 2016, just 640 million of the new ones in 2017. We all no that is wrong.

It could be the Mint is slow to issue the full figures? I remember in the late 70s seeing that the figure for 1976 50p's was less than a million, and I started collecting them avidly (though oddly I never questioned that there were plenty out there). It later turned out that that was a provisional figure only and in the end there were millions.

You may be right, but as they delay releasing the figures until at least a year later now, they ought to be more up to date. It certainly doesn't explain why 2016 One Pound coins are not listed at all, two years after the event.

I emailed the Royal Mint and got a standard "Thank you for your interest and I have passed the buck" message back from Lewis.
