    I Heard Kew Gardens Ones Are Rare, Can Anyone Confirm And If So, What’s Its Value?

    • robinparkes says:

      Hi Saul, they are the rarest 50p in circulation – just 210,000 were struck for use in change. There was some speculation on prices stoked by press interest earlier in the year but the value has settled down now – you can expect to get between £20-£30 on eBay for a good condition coin. Which isn’t a bad return for 50p! Thanks, Robin

    • Rocky Jalota says:

      I also have a kew garden 50p if Anyone’s interested?!?
