The only one I've seen was the Blue Peter comp winner one and taht was in the church collection plate last Xmas...
I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.

It's funny how as soon as you find one you find loads though. Until about 3 weeks ago I'd never seen a Darwin £2, however I've had about 3 since then!

I think i just don't use change enough. I do more and more shopping with cards rather than cash, so i just don't get the coinage. Found my Boccia one this morning, so thats defiantely 1 down, 28 to go!

Been looking on the Royal Mint website, some are very pretty! Really hope I can collect them all!

Yes there are 29 and they are realeasing them in two lots I think, half this year (though actually came out last year) and the other half dated 2012 at the end of this year
I have nine so far - just checked as Mum brought home the badmington one today!

Smartie thats fine, I'll hang on to it for you, you can send me a normal 50p if you want, down in Cardiff at the mo but can sort out when i get back home.

I found two at work this evening if anyone needs them. One is what looks like high jump and not sure of the other one, will dig it out of my bag in the morning (my bag is on the floor, far away and I am cosy in bed :) )
