Examples include the Beatrix Potter 50p set (the Mrs Tiggywinkle 50p is very popular), NHS 50p, Commonwealth Games 50p and other special limited edition 50p, £2 and £5 coins as well. Some might be worth a lot of money, some might not. Use our search to find out what these coins are being sold for online.
Also just added - the new Wallace and Gromit 50p.
You will find pages about ancient coins right through to modern decimal coins including many that are still in circulation. George II coins are particular popular with numismatists and also gold guinea coins, which are particularly spectacular, as well as being very valuable.
Coin collecting is a very popular hobby all around the world though and for that reason, you will also see coins for sale from overseas as well. For example, silver dollars and wheat pennies are very well collected.
