50 Pence Coins
The British Fifty Pence (50p) is a 7-sided coin that was introduced in October 1969 as part of the decimalisation of the British currency. It replaced the 10 shilling note, both being equivalent to half of one pound (£0.50). It was resized in 1997. There's about one billion 50p pieces in current circulation.- You can see 50 Pence Coins on eBay UK
Many people collect 50p coins and they start with what they find in their change. I hear many lucky stories! The rush maybe started with the 2009 Kew Gardens 50p which had a very low mintage and now sells for over £100. You can find all years on ebay but watch out for fakes and use established dealers.
