So, another week and two new items of coin related news!
The Brexit fifty pence has been scrapped.
Well, what a surprise. I mean, did anyone really expect this to happen when they said it would? I suppose we may see the Brexit fifty pence emerge at some point but when this will actually be is quite another question altogether. One that sits quite comfortably alongside, ‘When will our nation cease to be governed by numpties?’
As far as I am concerned, a far more interesting thought would be, ‘Will any of these coins manage to escape the crusher?’ Because if they do, they will be worth a serious amount of dollar….
Oh, and the salt in the wound with the Brexit fifty pence? It was actually going to be put into circulation!
Ha ha ha. Ironic isn’t it?

The Wallace and Gromit 50p has been released.
Yup, it’s upon us. And (brace yourselves everyone)…. Wallace and Gromit will not be going into general circulation.
(Personally I didn’t have to pick myself up off the floor after learning this).
At first glance it doesn’t look too bad (could have been a whole lot better) but it does appear to be a nicer coin than any of the Paddington ones (although most coins are).
And the big question with this subject is…… ‘Have they sated themselves with releasing child-orientated coins yet?’ God, I do hope so.
Bored, bored, bored.
