A bit Weird But

A few years ago I had a fifty pence piece with the image of the Pagoda at Kew gardens on the back...thought thats nice and then spent it only to find out later that theses coins were selling for 50 quid +++++upwards.

Just found a 50p piece in nearly mint condition with an image of Peter Rabbit on the back.

Have put it in a safe place and shall wait to see what happens.

PS the one i have is different from the one on the link

Yes, hang on to it Galty, at least until you know for sure this time.
You might be a wealthy man by this Christmas.

Wondered where I'd lost that ten-bob piece.

I have a Benjamin Bunny 50p from the 2017 Beatrice Potter collection - https://www.royalmint.com/our-coins/...k-50p-bu-coin/
Not worth a lot but I'm keeping it safe

What date is your Peter Rabbit coin Galty?

You'll all have to get together to complete the Beatrice Potter set and split the profit.

I didnt know they did a Beatrix Potter theme on coins.... a set of those would be a great gift and investment for grandkids I will look out for those.
