Coin condition and quality
The value of a coin is always related to the condition. A Barbary Macaque 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.) will be worth more than a worn down battered coin.
Some Gibraltar 50p coins have also been available to buy in Diamond Finish (similar to Brilliant Uncirculated) 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 producing mint. These are still circulation quality coins - but may keep more of the orginal shine and have a few less contact marks, which can make them more desirable to collectors.
The Barbary Macaque 50p coins not in sealed bags or held in a collection will have been in circulation on the peninsula of Gibraltar for 7 years.
