psSSST!

The word around the Neanderthal campfire is that The Royal Mint are bringing out a series of dinosaur fifty pences in the new year.  Okay, so once again these are something purposely designed to appeal to kids (‘Mummy, pleeeeease can you spend £40 on four fifty pences for me?’)…… but at least they have the potential to be half decent.
 
People are getting kind of bored of badly drawn bears and a seemingly endless barrage of bunnies.  So…… the new Jurassic slant on things could at least prove to be a more enjoyable experience.
 
Of course, the next questions are going to be –
 
Q1 - How many are they going to release?
Q2 - Will they be going out into general circulation?
 
A1 - Dunno. Nowt said as yet.
A2 - HAHAHAAH.  Don’t hold your breath…….

  • It could well be Ron. Not even more bumper than this year I hope……. purely because it is so damn expensive.
    Which brings me onto the next bit…… No, I am inclined to agree :/

  • good start for 2020, at least six coin releases suggested and we have got past November yet, so it could be a bumper year for new releases by the RM. How many of these are we going to find in our pocket? Not many I suspect
