Today, the 2022 Platinum Jubilee 50p coins entered circulation! Issued to commemorate Her Majesty’s 70 year service to the throne, this brand new 50p is the very first circulating coin of 2022.
Getting one of the first coins put into circulation can be quite an achievement, especially with a coin as popular as this one.
It was confirmed that an initial 1.3 million would be released from Post Offices on the 7th February, but a further 1 million entered circulation ahead of the Platinum Jubilee weekend in June!
This takes the combined mintage to a total of 2.3 million. The Royal Mint have confirmed that there would be a maximum mintage of 5,000,070 if demand allowed.
Post Offices in Windsor and close to Sandringham were among the first branches to receive the new coin.
Whilst they’ve been initially released in areas that are significant to the Queen’s reign, these coins were gradually dispersed all over the country. And thanks to you, we’ve been able to plot this 50p’s journey around the UK!
We’ve been keeping track of where Change Checkers have found the 2022 Platinum Jubilee 50p coins and it seems as though it’s already travelled far and wide!
From Anglesey, to Tyrone, and Fife, this 50p has reached the far West, whilst also journeying as far as Kent and East Sussex in the East. Collectors in Scotland will also be pleased to see it’s reached several locations in central and North East regions.
