How much is an A-Z of Great Britain 10p worth now?

The A-Z of Great Britain 10p coins have been a firm favourite with collectors since they were first released last year, 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.

How much is an A-Z of Great Britain 10p worth now?

The Ones to Watch…

If you’ve been lucky enough to find the ‘B’ for Bond 10p in your change, you may want to keep hold of it as it currently sells on eBay for around £3.05 – over 30 times its face value!

This coin also currently holds the top spot on our Scarcity Index, so it seems collectors everywhere are desperate to add this 10p to their collection!

In very close second, the ‘C’ for Cricket 10p sells for an average of £2.98, followed by ‘J’ for Jubilee in third, which has been selling for around £2.69.

How Many A-Z 10ps Are Out There?

Earlier this year 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.

The 2020 Dinosaur coins – What we know so far…

2020 is already shaping up to be a big year for coin collectors, as recent Royal Proclamations have revealed an exciting line-up of new coins to look forward to next year.

And we’ve just heard the biggest news yet… In fact, this news is so colossal that it’s sure to shake the coin collecting community!

That’s because the Royal Proclamation on the 8th November has revealed a brand new series of dinosaur themed 50p coins will be released next year.

The 2020 Dinosaur coins - What we know so far...

Three dino themed 50ps

Three designs have been announced, including the Megalosaurus, Iguanodon, and Hylaeosaurus.

‘Megalosaurus’ is Greek for ‘great lizard’ and at seven to eight metres long it certainly lives up to its name! In 1676 the first Megalosurus bone was discovered in Oxfordshire and publication of the find is thought to make this dinosaur the very first to be described in scientific literature.

Iguanodon were large herbivores with distinctive thumb-like spikes. After Megalosaurus, these were the second type of dinosaur to be formally recognised.

Hylaeosaurus was an armoured dinosaur with at least three long spines along its shoulders. However, much of the anatomy of this dinosaur is still unknown due to the fact that very limited remains have been found.

The UK’s first dinosaur coins

Excitingly, these will be the first ever UK dinosaur coins and I for one can’t wait to see these roarsome coins let loose!

Of course the designs and release dates are top secret for now, but if you’d like to be kept up to date with all the latest information about the 2020 Dinosaur 50p coins, simply sign up using the form below.
