Noted recently are a number of published Royal Mint amendments to old mintage figures. Perhaps they went through their figures and noticed that some were not quite correct. The changes themselves are not massive and seem to have affected coins that already had very large mintages, so I suspect it won’t be reported in the papers/tabloid websites and it won’t cause a silly frenzy on eBay, which makes a refreshing change!
The changes have been reflected on this website and will be changed in the next update of the app (and of course in the next book).
Coin affected by mintage number changes were:
1991, 1996, 1998 (separate figures for the bronze and copper plated steel types for the first time), 2000, 2001
Thanks to Neil Baldwin, Lee Holt and Candice Clews for bringing this to my attention.
