1x 2010 Shield 50p

This was a pretty awesome hunt with 21 different coins! Usually the Star Find would be one of the 2 Olympic coins we found. The 2011 London 2012 Basketball 50p has a mintage of 1,748,000 and the 2011 London 2012 Wrestling 50p a mintage of just 1,129,500.

However this hunts Star Find is the 2010 Shield 50p. This NIFC (Not Intended For Circulation) must have been busted out of the 2010 year set and is sold for £30-£65 on Ebay depending on the quality.

This was out very first NIFC coin!
