It's nearly time for the scariest coin hunt ever!
The online coin hunt is available every day, but there are also special events for all Coin Hunters to take part in.
This year for the first time there will be a Halloween Coin Hunt. Take part to learn more about this coin and if you're lucky, find and own The Royal Mint's new for 2018 Mary Shelley's Frankenstein £2 Coin.
Coin Hunter is all about including everyone in the fun and exicitment of finding a special coin design in your "change", so the hunt is open to all UK residents and free to enter.
There are prizes and surprises as regular players would expect, but if you are new to online coin hunting, take a look at the Coin Hunter app video below to find out how it works.
The player in first place at the stroke of midnight on the 31st of October will receive a prize of 2 tickets to The Royal Mint Experience where you can join in the spirit of Halloween and visit Frankenstein's Laboratory between Monday 29th October and Friday 2nd November 2018.
Here at Coin Hunter we believe that the fun of the coin hunt is lost if you buy coins and even more so if the seller asks more than face value. This is why coins found in the hunt are always available at face value, they always have been and always will.
In a recent special event coin hunt, every coin in circulation was available to find - with a lots of lucky coin hunters finding the coins they needed for their collection. Simon was the luckiest of all finding the Kew Gardens 50p on 25 September 2017 and sharing his excitment on the Coin Hunter Facebook Group. "have i really just locked the kew?"
As always there will be a wide variety of coins available to find in the coin hunt, £2 coins including the Shakespeare Tragedies "Skull", £1 coins, 50p coins and the so hard to find in real change A to Z 10p coins.
H - Houses of Parliament | A - Angel of the North | L - Loch Ness | L | O - Oak Tree | W - World Wide Web | E - English Breakfast | E | N - NHS || You can find out more about all the A to Z 10p coins from The Royal Mint Coin Hunt page.
Every coin shown above will be available, some will be easier to find than others! As the WWW (World Wide Web) W 10p Coin is based on a spider web design - this is the one related to Halloween and will be easy to find.
It also seems appropriate to include the WWW 10p coin in an online coin hunt, celebrating the way the world wide web has brought more opportunity and a better quality of life to so many people. Here at Coin Hunter we believe that The Great British Coin Hunt should include everyone in Great Britain.
In 2016 a trio of new £2 coins entered circulation to mark the 400th Anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. Each coin was created to represent a type of play Shakespeare wrote and featured an iconic symbol such as a skull and rose from Hamlet for the Tragedies £2 Coin.
With skulls being associated so closely with Halloween, a number of this coin with be available to find in the coin hunt, if you see this coin in your virtual change, just click it and lock it - it's yours to order at face value.
