Current eBay (realistic) prices Jim;

Kew Gardens 50p - approx £70
Northern Ireland Commonwealth games £2 - approx £35
Other Commonwealth games - approx £8-£14
2016 Jemmima Puddleduck 50p - approx £7

Look out for Sir Isaac Newton 50p 2017. They are very rare. The montage figures were realeased today and it is estimated (via change checker website) that they will be worth more than Kew Gardens soon.

If you want to make a killing go along to the Royal Mint this month. I will be going. The 2018 Isaac Newton 50p coin will only be made available from there and you can strike it yourself. They have a limited number and estimate the deal will only last for a month. They are going to be very rare. However, it does cost £14 to do the Royal Mint experience. Good visit though.



Ok will keep a look out in my change from now on :grin:

Got to say - whoever is in charge of the business side of things at the Royal Mint has their head switched on. To get people to pay for the privilege of pressing a coin that will never really go into circulation and will become a collectors item has read the market perfectly imo.

I wonder if any of them are County fans? We could certainly use their experience.

Norm, if it's marked at least 10BC (in Latvian of course) it will be worth a million minimum.
