    Finding a circulated QE 2 with King Charles on it was the highlight of my week, last week.

    The QEII Memorial Coin wasn’t in circulation in January 2021.

      Hi Zac! 4.9 million Memorial 50ps entered circulation in December 2022. As we don’t have data from before this, the 2021 price is taken as the coin’s face value of 50p.
