  • Any numismatists out there?

    Re: "The ‘Saxon plural of penny’ piece was released in 2005 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language, released in 1755".

    I recently found the above 50p in my change and kept hold of it. I've googled around to see what it's value might be, but I cannot get a firm idea of it's value.

    Any thoughts on it's value anyone?

    (This coin doubles my " coin collection" to two. The other coin I have is a florin of some sort with a version of King George on it. It's somewhat worn but I keep it out of sort of "sentimental", reasons. I've had it since I was teenager. It must have caught my attention because I associated the word florin with a coin of old).

        You've never counted coins?

            Does Sam count as a Numismatist as I’ve heard that he’s loaded.

                  Funnily enough I did see what appeared to be a perfectly ordinary 2p coin for sale on ebay today, for the princely sum of £11,000, so I think your 50p coin should be worth £275,000 at least.

                    I like your thiinking! I think I'll keep hold of it now until it's value reaches a nice round million...
