50p Coin Price Guide

How much is my 50p coin worth?

As 50p coin collectors ourselves we know how difficult it is to figure out 50p coin values without a 50p Coin Price Guide.

Typically, a coin is worth face value (50 pence) however a coin collector (formally called a Numistatist) may be willing to pay a premium to own the coin as part of a coin collection (Numismatics).

A lot of coins are listed and sold on eBay, however, the asking prices often vary wildly from a few pounds up to a few thousand pounds, even for the same coin.

We decided to build this site as the 50p Coin Collectors Price Guide website for British Coin collectors to establish a 50p Coin Value Index.

How are 50p values calculated?

We spend hours doing market research on the trending prices of all UK 50p coins, mostly those sold on eBay.

In 2020, eBay removed the feature from their systems to allow 3rd-parties to directly query their database for sold item listings so in 2021 it has become a completely manual task!

The prices we show at the top of each of our 50p product pages are an average for coins we have seen completed item listings for. Please use these prices only as a rough guide and do you own research before buying and selling fifty pence coins.

Add shipping costs!

Some online sellers are using a tactic to list coins for sale for a cheap price and then add crazy shipping costs. Make sure when you are bidding online that you take into account the product prices plus postage and packing.

What is the rarest 50p coin?

We will be adding a reference page for each coin as this will provide details such as total mintage as this will answer another common question, is it a rare coin?

Please see our 50p Mintage Figures chart so that you can quickly see the most valuable and rare 50p coins in circulation.

How many different 50p coins are there?

We counted 60 coins! Let us know if you have a different number.


Please assume that we HAVE NOT reviewed any of the eBay listings featured on our site and they may contain inaccurate, false or misleading information about the coin posted by the Seller.

Coins can be mis-described or fake / copy coins on eBay.

We also often see Sellers using Search manipulation techniques like stating “NOT Kew Gardens” in their listing title, just because they know this will drive more views of their coin based on “kew gardens” search results.

Please check the actual eBay Sales page using the link provided to validate any information directly on eBay for yourself.
