The most accessible opportunity to collect Royal Mint coins must surely be from circulating coin. Circulating coin means the coins we use to pay for things…the coins you carry in your pocket every day. Many people forget that amongst these similar looking pieces of metal there lie great rarities and variations.
Check your change…perhaps you have the beginnings of a collection! Lots of people are already collecting the London 2012 50ps…you can find them on Twitter using the hashtag #Olympic50p
Of course, if you can’t find them all in your change, or if you want to collect coins that don’t make it into circulation, you can still buy London 2012 50ps and other Olympic coins direct from us!
