About Roger Bannister

Roger Bannister was a middle distance athlete who ran the first sub 4 minute mile on the 6th of May 1954. His time was 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. Bannister's record lasted just 46 days. The 50p coin minted 50 years later in 2004 was to celebrate his achievement and shows the running legs of an athlete in front of a stopwatch with the watch hands stopped just short of 4 minutes.

How much is the Roger Bannister 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 Roger Bannister 50p is worth £0.99 to a circulation coin collector taking part in The Great British Coin Hunt.
