This coin first appeared as a circulation coin during September / October 2018. New 50p coins such as the Representation of the People Act design seem to enter circulation via the Post Office network in £250 bags containing 25 £10 sealed bags of the same design.

These sealed bags of Representation of the People Act 50p coins are intended to reach businesses that order change from the Post Office - which would then be used in the tills and could be received as change. BUT often these sealed 50p bags are redirected by a member of staff to be sold on eBay at 2 or 3 times face value.

How much is the Representation of the People Act 50p worth?

A 50p coin created for UK circulation by The Royal Mint will always be worth at least 50p. The coin can be in pretty much any condition and a shop will accept it as face value payment.

When a coin is considered collectable by a large number of people, even if the coin was struck to be used in circulation - it's value to a collector will rise to more than face value. In 2009 a coin was struck to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Kew Gardens, with a low mintage of 210,000 coins for circulation, the Kew Gardens 50p now sells for about 140 times face value.

The Representation of the People Act 50p is worth £1.15 to a circulation coin collector taking part in The Great British Coin Hunt.
