50p Commemorative Coin Hunt 003

This is the 3rd hunt in the series where we buy a closed bag of £250 worth of 50 pences to see how many commemorative 50p coins I could find for my own collection. The sealed bag was from Birmingham dated 04-02-2020. This is what we found:

4x 2017 Benjamin Bunny
3x 2020 Brexit
1x 1998 European Union
1x 2005 Samuel Johnsons Dictionary
1x 2011 London 2012 Aquatics
1x 2013 Christopher Ironside
1x 2014 Commonwealth Games
1x 2016 Battle of Hastings
1x 2016 Squirrel Nutkin
1x 2017 Peter Rabbit
1x 2017 Tom Kitten
1x 2018 The Tailor of Gloucester
1x 2018 Paddington at Buckingham Palace
1x 2019 Paddington at St Paul’s

1x 2017 Shield

This wasn’t the best hunt we have ever had however we did find our first 2020 Brexit 50p coins. Getting an Olympic coin was awesome and the Star Find in this hunt was the 2011 London Olympic Aquatics 50p with a mintage of just 2,179,000 and estimated value of £2.
