So…currently in a bit of a difficult financial situation at the min. Husband has just gone self employed & hasn’t had any income since 2 weeks before Christmas, so money has become quite tight as I’m sure you can imagine!
So, I decided to count up my 50p money box, just to see how much I had and whether it was worth putting it into the bank- after all, what am I actually collecting it for?
So while I was counting husband pipes up ‘hey, see if you come across one of those Kew Gardens coins. They’re really rare’ now I’m a pretty unlucky person so just replied ‘don’t be daft- I’m never going to come across one of those’
I was wrong!!
Looked on eBay and they’re going for about £25-£30. Pretty good mark-up on a 50p.
I looked on the royal mint website where it says it’s the rarest coin due to the amount made- they reckon in normal circulation only 1 in 300 people will come across one! So quite lucky for once! Maybe my luck is changing!!
The question now is- what do I do with it? Sell it and get about £30? Or keep it for years and see if it’s worth more in the future?
What do you think? Also- get checking your purses!!
