      Hi Les, No £2s have entered circulation since the 2016 coins. The only 50ps to enter circulation since 2017 are Paddington, Representation of the People Act, 2018 Peter Rabbit, Flopsy Bunny, Tailor of Gloucester, Mrs Tittlemouse, Sherlock and Brexit. Hope that helps 🙂

    Getting a face value coin from the ballot is like winning the lottery. Got my name from when it started and so far NO CHANCE of getting any.

      Hi Carlos, thanks for the comment! Sorry that you haven’t won yet, I can confirm that 1,000 winners were randomly chosen to win the Rosalind Franklin BU 50p for face value. Fingers crossed you’re a winner next time!
