Good news Change Checkers – your latest eBay Tracker and Valuation Index is here!

Whilst the secondary market can be a bit of a minefield, we’ve put together an easy way for you to see how much the Top 10 UK coins and banknotes are selling for right now.

eBay Tracker

Find out which coins and notes have been the key movers and shakers in the updated eBay Tracker below.

It seems as though the popularity of the 92/93 EEC 50p has rocketed in the past few months, as it has increased in price on the secondary market by a staggering £34 – that’s a 74% jump!

There’s no denying that the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union on the 31st January 2020 and the incredibly popular 2020 Brexit 50p, have played a massive part in the increase of interest for this coin.

92/93 EEC 50p

It was issued to celebrate the UK’s presidency of the European Council of Ministers and has a mintage lower than the Kew Gardens 50p (just 109,000!)

The Kew Gardens 50p has also seen another rise in price on the secondary market, taking it up to a huge £155.50 – a £35.50 increase since our last update!

2009 Kew Gardens 50p

With less cash being used in the past few months because of the current climate, it’s likely collectors are heading to the secondary market to get hold of certain coins, rather than waiting to find them in their change. This therefore drives the price up, as demand for the coin increases.

Additionally, with more time being spent at home and people seeking new hobbies to keep themselves entertained, new collectors are perhaps becoming more aware of rare and collectable coins that might be worth owning and as a result, are heading to the secondary market to get hold of one.

But will we continue to see the price of this coin rise on the secondary market as we head back to a new kind of ‘normal’? Only time will tell and we’ll have to wait for the next eBay Tracker update to find out!

2015 Britannia £2 and 2018 Isaac Newton 50p

Other coins to keep an eye on are the 2015 Britannia £2, which has increased in price by 14% since our last eBay Tracker update and the 2018 Sir Isaac Newton 50p, which has increased in price by £4.

Valuation Index

Overall there has been an 18% increase in value for the Top 10 UK coins and banknotes since January’s update and this is mostly due to the impressive spike in price for both the 92/93 EEC 50p and the Kew Gardens 50p.

This is the biggest increase we’ve seen since the tracker started and the first time since January 2018!

My coin isn’t on the eBay Tracker

The eBay Tracker follows the movements of the Top 10 UK coins and banknotes, however if your coin doesn’t appear on the tracker you can use our 6 point guide to help determine realistic a value for your coin.

So now that you’re up to date with our latest eBay Tracker, will you be selling any of the coins in your collection or will you continue to save them? Let us know in the comments below.

How does the eBay Tracker work?

The Change Checker eBay Tracker takes the last 9 sold prices achieved on eBay and gives the median price achieved (rounded to the nearest 50p). By taking the median, rather than an average, we avoid skewing created by one or two excessive prices achieved.

Please note that the Change Checker eBay Tracker is only ever designed to be a guide as to prices achieved on eBay. Prices may vary depending on collector demand and the quality of the coin being sold. It does not provide any guarantee as to future values of coins.


If you’re interested in coin collecting, our Change Checker web app is completely free to use and allows users to:

– Find and identify the coins in their pocket
– Collect and track the coins they have
– Swap their spare coins with other Change Checkers
