The Royal Mint is offering the chance to buy a 50 pence piece (that’s right – a piece of coinage that you can buy 50 penny chews with, or put with four shiny pound coins and buy a glass of wine). You can buy this coin for £2.99.
Am I missing something? Apparently you can buy these from the mint – for quite literally a ‘mint’ – or you can see if you get one in your change as they are also in day to day circulation. So how much are the ones in my change worth? £2.99? Or are they worth 50p – as is written on them. I’m a bit confused…..
