How much is my 50p worth?

Prices may be incomplete or entirely inaccurate due to the wild variation in coin conditions and selling prices.

We have no way to be sure any eBay listing was completed and paid for. Check back to this page often for pricing updates of 50p coin values.

(BUNC) = Brilliant Uncirculated, these coins never entered UK circulation.

What 50p coins are worth money?

What it’s worth will depend on condition and rarity.

eBay coin prices can vary wildly, and valuing coins is subjective anyway so you should only use this data as a guide and do your own research before buying and selling coins.

We have not bought or sold, seen, or inspected any coins in our research to establish these guide prices.

The 50p values vary depending upon how rare the coin is and its condition. Many coins are listed as RARE when they are not!

See our list of rare 50p coins and rare £2 coins.

Buying coins on eBay

When buying, always read the eBay listing title and description carefully.

Look for the words “COPY”, “FAKE” or “Replica” as some coins are not genuine.

Ask the eBay seller directly to confirm if the coin is genuine if you are unsure.

Coin Condition

It matters! You can assume the coin prices we have researched are for coins in general circulation but otherwise reasonable condition.

Unless it is a coin that did not enter circulation then the coin would be BUNC.

Brilliant Uncirculated (BU/BUNC), Proof, Piedfort, Silver and Gold coins will obviously sell for much more.

We hope this data will help Coin Collectors find bargains or sellers set the right price to sell their coins.

What are Commemorative Fifty Pence coins worth?

Coins are worth their face value i.e. fifty pence, however, a coin collector may be willing to pay more to own a coin that they have been unable to find in their change.

Our coin prices are provided as an indication of 50p coin values based upon eBay coin sales history for coins in the first-class condition (known as Extremely Fine in numismatics terms). Lower-grade coins will be worth much less.

The value of individual coins varies based upon condition, demand, and if it is a rare coin.

To get your coin worth, have it appraised by a Numismatist or professional coin grading services such as NGC or PCGS.

50p Coin Prices

It is likely you will pay more for eBay Buy It Now (BIN) listings, for the satisfaction of immediately securing a coin. Coin prices vary greatly and are dependant upon coin condition and scarcity.

Most fifty pence coins were released either circulated, uncirculated (BUNC), Silver Proof or Gold Proof.

Recent new releases have seen a trend towards issuing a plain BUNC and a coloured BUNC (pad printed decal stickers applied).

Make sure to read our UK Coins pages on specific coins so that you understand the difference in these coins before buying or selling.

Circulated Coins VS Commemorative coins

The coin price list includes mostly circulated coins. Coins such as the 2020 Peter Rabbit coin were issued as a commemorative only coin and therefore not be entered into general circulation. These are marked as (BUNC) coins.

You will not find these in your pocket change and can only purchase them in commemorative packs.

There are different reasons for coins not entering circulation, such as too many of the coin denomination already in circulation.

Fifty pence coin releases so far in 2020 include seven commemorative only BUNC coins:

Only two fifty pence coins have been put into UK general circulation
