But, secondary markets can be a bit of a minefield. So, we’ve done the hard work for you.

King Charles III 50p
The new King Charles III 50p entered circulation in December 2022. It hit the headlines as it was the very first UK coin to feature His Majesty’s portrait on the obverse.
Commemorating Queen Elizabeth II’s life and achievements, this 50p is already fetching 400% its face value on eBay, with the median selling price of the last 9 listings coming up at £2.50!
4.9 million 50p coins are out there. So, we all stand a reasonable chance of finding one in our change. Plus, if you’ve used our collector map, you will have tracked down a 50p for your own collection.
Kew Gardens 50p
The rarest 50p in circulation, the Kew Gardens, is one of the most sought-after coins out there.
Just 210,000 of these 50p coins entered circulation in 2009 and now, 14 years on, it’s still fetching over around £167 on the secondary market. That’s a huge return on a 50p coin!
It’s understandably quite tricky to find one in the wild now, with the majority expected to have been absorbed into private collections. But, are you lucky enough to have this in your collection? Comment below!
Largely considered the Holy Grail of coin collecting, the undated 20p is incredibly sought-after by collectors.
In 2008, a small number of 20p coins were incorrectly struck without a date. No more than 250,000 entered circulation, making it particularly hard to find one.
The median selling price on eBay for the last 9 sold listings in January saw this 20p sell for around £75!
So, you better start checking your 20ps in your piggy bank…
We’ve entered a whole new era of coinage and banknotes, with the accession of King Charles III to the throne and there has never been a better time to start checking your change.
So, as new coins enter circulation, keep your eyes peeled for the small details, like a missing date, an incorrect inscription, or an incorrect blank.
A look at our UK Ebay Coin Tracker shows you just how valuable rare and error coins can be to some collectors.
