What do we mean by uncirculated quality? This is a coin created by The Royal Mint for circulation, but the coin never entered circulation. Your 50p coin is taken directly from the first sealed bag it was placed in after minting and put into a protective plastic coin wallet. Uncirculated coins are shiny, but will have a few contact marks where they have knocked against other coins in production and transit.
