This was an excellent hunt with 18 different coins. This has been the first hunt that we have found the most 2019 Sherlock Holmes 50p’s. A 2015 Battle of Britain 50p and 2018 Paddington at Buckingham Palace 50p are a nice find, but the stars of the hunt are the two Olympic 50p coins.

So this weeks Star Find is between the 2011 London 2012 Hockey and 2011 London 2012 Canoeing however the Hockey has the lowest mintage of 1,773,500 and is worth around £2.50.
