50p Commemorative Coin Hunt 019

This is the 19th hunt in the series where we buy a sealed £250 bag to see how many commemorative 50p coins I could find for my own collection. The sealed bag was from the Post Office and dated 15th July 2020 and time 17:36:48, so wish us luck!

This was a pretty standard hunt with all the commemoratives you would expect to see. The 1998 European Union 50p Coin was a nice find, and I have a soft spot for the 2015 Battle of Britain 50p coin, so that is a keeper!

The Star Find was the 2011 London 2012 Shooting 50p with a mintage of 1,656,500 and estimated value at £2.50. Who doesn’t love finding an Olympic in their hunt!
