Expensive 50ps

There are a number of 50 pence coins currently in circulation, ranging from ‘uncommon’ to ‘extremely rare’ and depending on the kind you have in your possession might be the difference between Nandos-meal rich or new car rich.
Here are five 50 pence coins you should definitely look out for in your purse:

Our pending exit from the EU makes these coins all the more ironic: they were made to commemorate the British presidency of the council of Europe. While they’re not worth hundreds, you could probably sell it for upwards £20.
