The value of a coin is always related to the condition. A Benjamin Britten 50p coin in good circulated condition (A few small contact marks on the coin, but retains some original shine and most of the original design detail.) is more desirable to a collector than a worn down battered coin.
Prices shown on this page relate to coins created for circulation (CIRC) and and coins available to buy in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) quality. These are coins produced to a higher standard that show more detail and have none of the marks and scratches that will be seen on all circulation quality coins.
Some coins made for circulation remain "Uncirculated" as they have been kept in or taken from the original sealed coin bag they were packed in after being sent out from The Royal Mint. These are still circulation quality coins - but may keep more of the orginal shine and have a few less contact marks.
Coins not in sealed bags or held in a collection out of the 5,300,000 coins struck will have now been in circulation for 10 years.
