The A-Z of Great Britain 10p coins have been a firm favourite with collectors since they were first released in 2018, with 26 Quintessentially British designs capturing the public’s imagination.

Unsurprisingly, some designs are proving more popular than others, but which ones are likely to fetch the most on the secondary market?

We’ve done the hard work for you by taking a look at which A-Z 10p coins are selling for the most on eBay and which ones you should be looking out for.

The Ones to Watch…

If you’re lucky enough to have the ‘A’ for Angel of the North 10p in your collection, you might want to keep hold of it as it currently sells for around £4.20 on the secondary market – over 40 times its face value!

Despite dropping down our August A-Z 10p Scarcity Index, now sitting at the lower half of the index, the ‘B’ for Bond 10p could still fetch you around £3.90!

The N for ‘NHS’ 10p has also increased in value on the secondary market, which comes as no surprise as it also climbed to top spot on our Scarcity Index in May. In recent months, perhaps more than ever, the NHS has played a vital role in keeping us safe and this 10p acts as a reminder of the strength, hope and support of our National Health Service.

How Many A-Z 10ps Are Out There?

In 2019 it was confirmed that there were only 220,000 of each individual design released into circulation in 2018. We know that there were 2.1 million coins issued for 2019 but we’re yet to find out the individual mintage figures for each design.

When the official figures are released we could well see some of these coins increasing in value on the secondary market due to their low mintage!

These coins are notoriously tricky to find, but have you been lucky enough to come across any in your change? Let us know in the comments below.

    Not seen a single 10p here in Notts. No one I know has either. I have managed to get a few full sets from the Royal Mint of uncirculated 10p pieces.



    • Steve from Hull on September 12, 2020 at 9:53 am

      I have both complete sets uncirculated



  2. Paul Berry on September 2, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    I do not have the individual coins themselves, but do possess the Complete A-Z UK Coin Cover Set comprising all 26 of the 2018 coins, each with its specially designed Royal Mail Philatelic Label on a Stamp/coin cover, being a. limited Edition of 250.
    Obviously I wouldn’t wish to split the coins from the covers, but does this collection have a higher value than the prices you stated, either to a numismatist or philatelist collector ?



    • Alexandra Siddons on September 3, 2020 at 12:13 pm

      Hi Paul,

      The A-Z 10p coins are incredibly popular with collectors and whilst we’ve listed the median of recently sold prices of the coins as individuals, we can’t unfortunately provide valuations for complete sets or for cover sets. Your best option would to search on the secondary market for the recently sold prices of your cover to give you an indication of what yours may fetch.

      I hope this helps!

      Thanks,
      Alex

    I manage to collect the complete set of 2018 coins, all from circulation.
    I need 6 more to complete my 2019 series, again from circulation.
    Need A, B, T, W, Y & Z
    Resisting well and not buying from Ebay



    • Alexandra Siddons on September 3, 2020 at 12:14 pm

      Wow Geoff, that’s very impressive! You’re very lucky to have found so many in your change!



  4. Tony on August 20, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Thanks for the chart, but I think your pricing is incorrect, letter A. Sells for at least £7
    B £5-£6 N £5 T £4-5.
    £1.20 for G NO CHANCE the cheaper ones are at least £2 each that’s without the postage on eBay.
    These coins are virtually now gone from circulation and I think will prove to be one of the best sets that went into circulation,
    Sorry to disagree with you but I sell these coins all the time and that’s what they fetch.



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 24, 2020 at 7:47 am

      Hi Tony,
      The prices are taken as a median of the latest 9 sold listings at a particular snapshot in time. These prices may fluctuate day by day, week by week.
      Thanks,
      Alex



  5. michael burman on August 20, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    Is there any difference between prices for 2018 and 2019 coins?
    I got most 2018 from post offices-visited over 70-and 2019 mainly by swa[ing duplicates of 2018



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 24, 2020 at 7:48 am

      Hi Michael,

      There is no difference in sold prices between the 2018 and 2019 issues. However, when the individual mintage figures for each design of the 2019 10p coins are confirmed, we may see this change! We’ll keep you posted!

      Thanks,
      Alex



  6. Hazel on August 20, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    Hi i was lucky enough to get a bag full of 2019 G at the post office when they first came out and have swapped them on your change checker app but i am still a few missing if any one has any swaps. I need B 2018 and A,K,Z 2019 as no one seems to have any more. I feel very lucky reading all your comments as no one has found any



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 24, 2020 at 7:49 am

      Hi Hazel,

      You are very lucky to have those A-Z 10ps! Keep searching for your missing designs, you never know when they could pop up in your change!

      Thanks,
      Alex



  7. Mark on August 20, 2020 at 3:49 pm

    Thanks very much Alex. I may well be sitting on a nice set of coins there!



  8. Philip Marsh on August 20, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    Still waiting to see any of them in Bournemouth, why are they not available here?



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:06 pm

      Hi Philip,
      They are definitely available, despite being tricky to find. My friend in Bournemouth discovered one not very long ago, so they might pop up in your change sooner than you think!
      Thanks,
      Alex



    • Chrisj on August 20, 2020 at 3:25 pm

      Me to I live in Dover never seen one yet



  9. Tammie on August 20, 2020 at 12:44 pm

    I worked in a supermarket when these came out and never saw any and still haven’t seen them. Luckily, I bought the uncirculated set when it first came out!



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:08 pm

      Hi Tammie,

      They can be tricky to find as they are so popular with collectors so get snapped up quite quickly but keep your eyes peeled you never know when they might pop up in your change! What’s your favourite deign in your set?

      Thanks,
      Alex



    • Marie Tassie on August 28, 2020 at 9:14 am

      I work in a Post Office and you’d think we would have seen all of them at some point! – but, I’ve seen very very few.



  10. Jack on August 20, 2020 at 11:59 am

    Are BU quality coins (such as those ordered as a complete 26-coin set) included in the annual mintage figures? Or do the values of BU coins fluctuate differently from those which entered circulation?
    Thanks 🙂



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:10 pm

      Hi Jack,

      Great question! Circulation quality coins have different mintage figures to that of Brilliant Uncirculated quality because they go through different minting techniques. The BU mintage figures do become available but slightly after the circulation mintage figures are revealed.

      Thanks,
      Alex



  11. Linda E on August 20, 2020 at 11:55 am

    Have never seen any of the A-Z 10p coins in my change! Think everyone is holding on to them.



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:11 pm

      Hi Linda,

      They certainly are popular with collectors so they can be tricky to find but they are definitely out there so keep searching!

      Thanks,
      Alex



  12. Robert on August 20, 2020 at 11:50 am

    Glad I bought the sets as I have not had one in my change even all my friends that look out for coins for me haven’t seen one still I have my sets to look at and they are nice



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:11 pm

      So glad you like the set Robert! What’s your favourite design?



  13. Julie on August 20, 2020 at 11:45 am

    Unfortunately I have only found about 8 is circulation 😭. But i did buy the complete un circulated set when it first came out is that increased the same



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:12 pm

      Wow Julie, 8 is very impressive though!

      The Brilliant Uncirculated sets are not included in these mintage figures.

      Thanks,
      Alex



      • Cliff on August 21, 2020 at 8:29 am

        I have both 2018 &2019 yes it was hard to get them &yes there is a lot of peaple holding on to them. BUT I got a lot of my’n from different sources (10p sites) yes it is not finding them in your change but you will never find both sets. Best of luck to you all.



  14. MR Colin G Evans on August 20, 2020 at 11:28 am

    Hi, I purchased most of my 2018 set from various Ebay sellers (3 or 4) in 2018, but some were given in change from our local Post office. Because it took so long to obtain the 2018 set, I purchased the complete 2019 set from the Royal mint when they were first released. Of which as it has turned out was the best thing to do. By my calculations your above Ebay prices equates to £52.74 per set, not including any incurred postal charges. Like most other people I have not seen any in my change for well over a year.



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:13 pm

      Hi Colin,

      The whole set can certainly fetch you a decent amount on the secondary market, but when placed all together, they make for a lovely collection worth holding onto!

      Thanks,
      Alex



  15. Colin Quinton on August 20, 2020 at 10:59 am

    I bought the complete set earlier this year are these as valuable as individual coins found in my change, which as yet I haven’t found one but I keep looking.



  16. Tony Joyce on August 20, 2020 at 10:54 am

    I have now got a complete set of 2018 but am finding 2019 much harder to find.

    You need to check your change and look for bargains!

    Any ideas when the mint will release 2019 50p mintages…… waiting for the Team Cathedral or Team Tower battle to be decided for Paddington!



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:15 pm

      Hi Tony,

      The mintage figures tend to be released at the end of the following year, so we can hope to receive them towards the end of this year!

      It definitely is between the Paddington’s! What’s your favourite design between the two?

      Thanks,
      Alex



  17. Paul Bradshaw on August 20, 2020 at 10:51 am

    I was wondering! I have two sets of uncirclatad 10p coins one for each year minted.
    What sort of price are these now have they gone up in value?



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:18 pm

      Hi there,

      These sold listings involve circulating mintages. As we don’t know the mintage figures for the Brilliant Uncirculated coins yet, we can’t say how their value has changed. However, as the coins are in a superior quality to the ones you’d find in your change, they will hold more value to collectors.

      Thanks,
      Alex



  18. David Brown on August 20, 2020 at 9:40 am

    So are both years at the same value or are one year better than the other.



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 9:59 am

      Hi David,

      Both years will hold value as they are the same design and have low mintage figures. We know that there were 2.1 million coins issued for 2019 but we’re yet to find out the individual mintage figures for each design. This could impact the collectability of some of the 2019 designs, if they vary in mintage 🙂

      Thanks,
      Alex



  19. M.J.Reynolds on August 20, 2020 at 9:35 am

    Here in Sunny Sidcup in Kent ,I have yet to see any of these 10p coins. You sure they are out there.



    • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 10:00 am

      I promise they are! They can be tricky to find because they are so popular with collectors and have such low mintage figures, but keep searching because you never know when you might find one in your change!

      Thanks,
      Alex



      • Mark on August 20, 2020 at 10:21 am

        I bought the complete set in its presentation cards and everything. How much will that be worth now?



      • Alexandra Siddons on August 20, 2020 at 3:19 pm

        Hi Mark,

        As we don’t know the mintage figures for the Brilliant Uncirculated coins yet, we can’t say how their value has changed. However, as the coins are in a superior quality to the ones you’d find in your change, they will hold more value to collectors.

        It’s always worth keeping an eye on the secondary market for the sold prices of the Brilliant Uncirculated quality 10p coins to get a good indication of their value.

        Thanks,
        Alex



      • Paul Murkett on August 24, 2020 at 8:28 pm

        I have all 2018 alphabet coins plus I bought 6 uncirculated James Bond 2018 10p coins as well when they first cane out and only paid 5 pounds for them off eBay,I have only had 2 2019 10p coins which luckily I had in my change E for English Breakfast and X for X marks the spot so there are some out there,But you have to be incredibly lucky to find any like I did just hope I can come across a few more 2019 ones.



      • Alexandra Siddons on August 26, 2020 at 3:31 pm

        Hi Paul,

        Sounds like you’ve got a strong A-Z 10p collection building there! You do have to be very lucky! Let us know if you find any more 2019 ones in your change.

        Thanks,
        Alex
