Interesting. That was something I had completely forgotten about when thinking about all the Government changes the last few years.
As a collector of complete coin sets, it would certainly make a bigger set if they changed signatures on coins too. I do not collect notes too much, but those that do can have fun finding them all.

I haven't managed to collect the circulation coins for all years - still a long way to go. How do you collect yours?

My wife and family help look for circulation coins. Others I have to trade for or buy.
How do you get yours?
