Earlier in the year, we updated our Change Checker Guide to UK Commemorative Coin Mintages which included details of all the coins issued into circulation in 2017.

But The Royal Mint has just updated its mintage figures for 2017-dated 50p coins.

It won’t be a surprise that the 2009 Kew Gardens remains king of the 50p coins, but owners of the 2017 Sir Isaac Newton 50p will be glad to hear that the coin has managed to keep its sought-after 2nd place position on the chart.  However, the final mintage has crept up by 1,500 bringing the total to 1,801,500

Whilst all four Beatrix Potter 50ps already had fairly high mintages when the figures were first revealed, the final mintages have since increased, the obvious change being the 2017 Benjamin Bunny 50p which has more than doubled.  It has been confirmed that further Benjamin Bunny 50ps went into circulation during 2018,  bringing the total mintage to 25,000,000.

The FIFA World Cup™ is watched by over 700 million people and is the single biggest sporting event across the globe.

You don’t have to be a football fan to be swept along by the mania and support for our team, as chants of ‘football’s coming home’ ring out up and down the nation and the country prepares to watch the semi-finals against Croatia on Wednesday.

If this is to be our year, Official collectables will be massively sought-after – and not least these. Two of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ coins issued for the tournament.

These have been released into circulation over there but are still incredibly hard to get hold of.

Featuring the Official FIFA World Cup™ Emblem and World Cup Trophy, only a limited number of these coins are available and with the football frenzy that’s gripped the nation, we’re sure these will be hugely popular amongst coin collectors and England supporters alike.

Whatever the result of tomorrow’s match, the 2018 FIFA World Cup has shown the world who we are and how we play.

There’s an incredible buzz and excitement as England seizes the opportunity to bring it home and let’s hope that they do us proud!
