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 ‘R’ for Robin 10p in your collection, you might want to keep hold of it, as it currently sells for around £6.99 on the secondary market – which is a pretty hefty return on its face value!
Equally, the B for Bond 10p, which has proven time and time again to be popular with collectors, is currently selling for around £6.25 on the secondary market sites.
These are some really big prices to pay for these A-Z 10p coins and it’s certainly higher than we’d expect to see!
We would always suggest caution and user discretion when buying and selling on eBay. Remember you can always use our 5 eBay Buying Tips which are on our blog, to make sure you get the most out of your money.
Dipping slightly in price, we see the L for Lochness Monster 10p selling for around £4.20 on eBay and the N for NHS fetching a similar price too.
How many A-Z 10p coins are out there?
In 2018, it was confirmed that 220,000 of each design were issued for circulation, but it wasn’t until 2021 that we saw the 2019 mintage figures confirmed.
Collectors who have managed to find the 2019 dated Q, W, Y, Z, and R 10p coins will be delighted to see that these have a lower mintage than the other 21 designs from that year.
The 2019 World Wide Web, Yeoman Warders and Zebra Crossing 10p coins all have a mintage of JUST 63,000! When you compare that to the rarest 50p in circulation, the Kew Gardens 50p, which has a circulating mintage of 210,000, it puts into perspective just how rare these 10p coins are.
Interestingly, the Robin 10p, which currently has the highest median sold price out of all of the A-Z 10p coins, has a combined 2018 and 2019 mintage of just 284,000, compared to 304,000 for the majority of the other coins!
