    Nope, they are real, new designs ... implemented as of today.

    Very cool how they form a shield, when arranged correctly.

    They are out now, as of today.

    You can buy proof sets online already, and can expect to see them very slowly start to replace existing coins.

    It is not changing ... still being issued, just not with a new design.

    Hmm, I'm definitely going to try and collect every coin we have currently now and store it away for future generations.
