The 2020 Team GB 50p coin is a British coin that was issued by the Royal Mint in 2020 to commemorate the 2020 Olympic Games, which were held in Tokyo, Japan.

Will the 2020 TEAM GB 50p become the most sought-after of UK coins?

The 2020 TEAM GB 50p is set to become one of the most sought-after of UK coins, with British coin collectors paying premium prices for BUNC coins on eBay.

It may even knock the Kew Gardens 50p (2009 edition) off the number one spot that it has held for many years as the best coin to have in your UK coin collection.

What is the 2020 TEAM GB 50p coin?

This 50p coin was released to celebrate the 2020 Summer Olympics due to be held in Tokyo, Japan. The 2020 Summer Olympics it currently scheduled to begin on Friday, 23rd July 2021, and ends on Sunday the 8th of August 2021. 2021 Team Gb 50p coins were released in June 2021.

Its formal name is the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo!

Is it an error coin?

Many collectors now considered it an “error coin” since it is dated 2020 and there were no Olympics games held in that year.

It is thought that the Royal Mint will issue the same coin design with a 2021 date, although it was not included in the 2021 Annual Coin Sets.

How many 2020 TEAM GB 50p coins were made?

This is unknown since the Royal Mint has not published any mintage figures yet for the Brilliant Uncirculated Annual Sets. The more expensive sets in the 2020 Annual Coin Sets do have limited mintage.

How much is the TEAM GB 50p worth?

Prices for coins ripped from annual coin sets have been spiking as coin hunters scramble to get this coin into their collection. We found one showing on eBay as sold for £140 although prices seem to have dropped to around £30 in January 2021.
