EEC 50P 1992 1993
Is this rare EEC 50P 1992 1993 more valuable than the Kew Gardens coin?
The EC coin was commissioned
As a celebration for the completion of the European Single Market.
Also the UK’s presidency of the Council of the European Union
But only a limited number were ever produced
Royal Mint figures show that just 109,000 were minted,
The lowest of any 50p released since 1968,
when the first decimal coins were introduced.
By comparison, the Kew Gardens 50p,
With its design of a pagoda encircled by vines, and commemorates the 250th anniversary of the Royal Botanic Gardens
Generally considered by coin collectors to be one of the most valuable
had a mintage of 210,000.
However, the EC coin won’t just turn up in your change.
As one of the older-style 50p’s, it was withdrawn from circulation in 1997.
This means that the odds of finding one are even lower.
Rare coins are only worth what a collector is willing to pay for them – but a hard-to-find coin will often attract a premium.
Given its scarcity, the EC coin tends to be one of the coins that sells for more.
The lowest of any 50p, EEC 1992 1993 released since 1968
Scarcity aside, coins with a significant meaning or an especially beautiful design tend to be more sought after than others.
For this reason, it’s possible the EC coin will grow in value as the Brexit debate raises interest in European politics.
It features 12 chairs around a negotiating table,with the UK at its head.
In the centre are 12 stars representing the European Union’s original member-states,
all of which are connected to the seats.
As you might imagine, it was very difficult to find any circulated versions of this coin out there,
but once Britain leaves the EU, there may well be more posted up on BIDALLHOURS as collectors look to cash in on its rarity.
