    I bought the full set of Olympic coins when they first became available and have one of the 600 Aquatic 50p coins.
    I will probably sell one day what do you think it is worth?

    I have 2 50p equestrian couns one rider has face and helmet the other is a blank blob…is it a misprint

      The one that is misprinted can be sold for over £3000! I suggest you keep hold of it until you find a suitable buyer. I highly suggest this source for selling coins:

      I have sold coins to them myself, so if you have any questions please ask.
