The new 2009 coins are in circulation now so if you see any of these, and you are not collecting them yourself, let me know and I’ll arrange a swap. For your bright, shiny, practically untainted piece of numismatic history you can have some coins of equal monetary worth that have been around the block a bit. Please form an orderly queue.
I already have the new coins based on the Royal Shield of Arms and if you are not careful I will make you look at them.
£2 coin to mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns.
