Feb 1st 2020 update:

Note that for this update the Alphabet 10p coins (both 2018 and 2019) did pose a bit of a problem due to the prices paid for them varying greatly. Despite some still being available new, people are often paying more than cost for at least some of them. Others, particularly those that are no longer available new seem to have quite volatile values, especially the letters that are in greater demand that people people need to make up names/words.
