The UK’s rarest coins in 2014

Do you have a rare coin in your pocket? Ever since the news that the 2009 Kew Gardens 50p is the rarest UK coin design in circulation, there has been an increase in interest in the mintage figures and rarity of the coins that are currently in circulation. There are over 100 different coin designs in circulation, 98 of which make up The Great British Coin Hunt, and with mintage figures largely driven by demand from banks and cash centres, some are certainly rarer than others.

Rarity is based on the mintage figures of United Kingdom decimal coins in circulation at 30 June 2014.

The 2009 Kew Gardens 50p leads the charts with a mintage of only 210,000. It is followed in second, third, fourth and fifth by four 2002 £2 coins. In 2002 four £2 coins were released to mark the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester. Based around the same core design, the coins are differentiated by the flags of the four constituent parts of the United Kingdom. The 2002 Commonwealth Games £2 with a Northern Ireland flag is the second rarest coin design in circulation with a mintage of 485,000. Third is the 2002 £2 coin that features the Wales flag, with a mintage of 558,500. Fourth is the 2002 £2 with the England flag, with a mintage of 650,500, and finally in fifth is the 2002 £2 with the Scotland flag with a mintage of 771,750. The rarest £1 coin, and ninth in our top 20, is the 2011 Edinburgh £1, which has a mintage of 935,000.

    It would be easdy for Royal Mint to manipulate a new leader here. How is the decision on numbers to mint made?

    • Hi Gavin, mintage figures of circulating coins are based on demand from banks and cash centres. I will ask the circulating coin department if they have any more information. Many thanks, Dan.

  • Phil Preston

    Interesting article, but one question: Where does the undated 20p piece fit in?

    • Mike Liddle

      I wondered that. Ought to be second rarest, surely – they reckon there were fewer than 250,000 produced. http://www.royalmint.com/discover/uk-coins/undated-20p-coin

    • Hi Phil, good question. The undated 20p was a minting error not a commemorative design which is why it does not feature above. We do not know exactly how many were affected but it was less than 250,000, you can find out more about it here: http://www.royalmint.com/discover/uk-coins/undated-20p-coin

    Has any collector heard of or have a standard proof £2 coin dated 1999 ?

    • Tiny

      I have acquired from circulation a 1998 £1.00 coin marked Queen Elizabeth the Second. There is no markings to say “which country it belongs to. But has “The Royal Shield” on the reverse.

      • Les Kent

        Hi Tiny
        this sounds to me, in fact I would say it was an English £1 coin dated as you said
        1988 the shield should have a coronet/crown on top and an inscription on it’s edge reading in Latin DECUS ET TUTAMEN this is a very scarce coin of a mintage
        of around 7 million (ish) but it is not rare.
        I hope this helps
        Regards
        Les.

        • Tiny

          Hi Les,
          Thank you for your reply to my question with regards to the £1.00. However, I have a 1988 coin that you have mentioned (a small shield with a coronet on the top) This £1.00 coin in question with Queen Elizabeth the Second is dated 1998 with a large full shield on the reverse similar to 2008 & 2009 £1.00 coins. The edge inscription is as you also say = DECUS ET TUTAMEN. Best regards Tiny

          • Les Kent

            Hi Tiny
            I am very sorry Tiny, I miss read your first message
            and I have to say you have got me there I have not heard of a shield £1 coin dated 1998 is there any chance of a couple of pictures the obverse and the
            reverse, I have two of every proof £1 & £2 coins but I don’t have that one, but I do have a few unique decimal £2 coins
            Sorry I could not help you BUT very interesting.

            Hi Les, I think i may have solved my mystery. An old 1964 Penny in my assorted collection is from “Bailiwick of Jersey” and has the same inscription on its face- Queen Elizabeth the second” and i am assuming, that my £1.00 coin has a connection with the same place. I can not under stand why it can carry “our coat of arms” instead of Jersey coat of arms (as the reverse side on the penny). I will attempt to send you photographs for your comments. Best regards Tiny

          • Les Kent

            Hi Tiny
            I was just about to get back to you with the thought of your £1 coin might ( just might) be a mule but you think you may have it sorted.
            I collect and have every Jersey 50p coins but no £1
            and I am not sure IF they have the same inscription
            or if they have one If at all, that might be worth checking, good luck with it and please let me know
            Best regards
            Les.

          • Les Kent

            Hi Tiny
            Have you had any luck with your 1998 £1 coin yet ?
            or do you still think it’s from Jersey.

          • Tiny

            Hi Les,
            The spinning is perfect (in line)
            The weight is spot on (Chemists scales)
            Also:-
            A. There is no Crinalage to any of the back grounds to the four shield quarters.
            B. There are no strings on the Harp.
            C. The milling around edge is twice the width of a normal coin.
            D. The TUTAMAN wording is far better done than any normal £1.o coin.
            Yes, its a fake Les. So i’m not as rich as i thought I was (so i shall have to cancel my new Car !!!) Iv’e not bothered to have it looked at by a dealer, but should you like to buy it let me know and i’m sure we can come to some sort of easy payments. Thank you Les for your time Regards (poor)Tiny.

          • Les Kent

            Hi Tiny
            I am sorry to hear that mate but I am not surprised
            I would not want it but if I found another I would keep it for the novelty only, but people do collect them put it on for £2 plus 80p P&P as a fake I think it would sell then put the money in the bank and in
            64 years or there abouts you can get your new car.
            That’s a plan but it’s not one of my best ideas.
            this might help, I believe you got it in your change.
            Well I bought a s rare set £600.00 when it arrived
            that was a FAKE so you see it could have been worse.
            Regards Les.

          • Les Kent

            Hi Tiny
            can you please tell me if you got my reply to this message. thank you

          • Tiny

            Hi Les:- No i didn’t receive a reply but i have sent pictures of the coins for you comments. Regards Tiny

          • Les Kent

            Hi Tiny
            I have since got back to you with two messages
            one starts, I was just about to get back to you,
            and the other is in a different place which says it
            IS English/British and it’s a MULE or it’s a FAKE, the queens head is right for the date but the shield
            was NOT, It was not designed until 2008 buy Matthew Dent.
            Your £1 coin is not from Jersey of this I am certain
            weigh another £1 coin and you mule make sure they both weigh the same and then do the spin check also check for any wear on the metal colouring but be very careful not to damage it as it may be a genuine mule but I doubt it.
            please let me know and good luck with it.
            Once again I hope this helps
            Best regards
            Les

      • RED

        This coin is indeed a mule, but is NOT authentic.
        It’s a fake. See my example below.

    • Terry McElligott

  • Peter Lewis

    How about the earlier Trecentenary Claim of Rights Scottish £2 coin, I thought that was rarer than the Irish Commonwealth £2.

    I’ve had four of the Commonwealth coins in my change over the years,two English a Scottish and Welsh, but I’ve never had a Claim of Rights Trecentenary coin.

    I had to get hold of a very scarce collectors pack,paying £29 for the pleasure of ownership.

  • Peter Lewis

    How about the earlier design £2 coin.
    The Tercentenary Of the Bill of Rights.
    The Scottish version was called The Claim of Rights, and that is a very low mintage coin, and is not on the list.

    • Terry McElligott

      It won’t be on the list as it’s not a current circulating coin. It was withdrawn many years ago. The list above is for coins you will find in your change currently.

  • Peter Lewis

    I’ve just checked, the rarest coin,even rarer than the Kew Gardens 50p and considerably rarer than the Irish Commonwealth £2 coin, is the much earlier 1989 £2 coin celebrating the Trecentenary of the Bill of Rights.

    There were two versions, the English and Scottish version.
    The English coin was for the Bill of Rights and it’s quite common, but the incredibly rare, only around 336,000 minted was the only available in Scotland, Claim of Rights Coin.

    It’s this coin that should go top of the list.

  • Hi Tom, that 20p coin does sound strange, but without seeing it it’s hard to comment further.Here’s info on all coin designs: http://bit.ly/1Af5kPp. Hope that helps.

  • rob

    i have some and im just wonting to no if there rare or if things like this are rare eg i have a £2 coin were the metal has not been pollised of properly leaaving a bit of metal on the end of the queens nose making it look like she has a crooked nose or snot hanging from it depending which way you look at it lol; and others were the beading around her head is ether missing or crooked and out of shape as if its been printed on a angel so to say. and im just wondering if coins like this are rare. and also were i could find out more about rare miss printed error coins from as i have some 0.02p that have the new penny written on it instead of two penny and i no some of them are worth a lot and very collectable but unsure about what year it is that its rare. and this is starting to make me wont to learn about coins like this and to start to collect but i unsure were to start and what to look out for if some one could help a bit id appreciate it
    thanks

  • Hi Rob, the athletics coin had a mintage of 2,224,000. All mintage figures can be found here: http://www.royalmint.com/discover/uk-coins/circulation-coin-mintage-figures/two-pounds-to-20p-issued

    • Rob G

      Thanks Daniel, but the coin I refer to is different. The Athletics coin with a mintage of 2,224,000 was dated 2011, as are all the other London 2012 Olympics 50 pence coins. The one I am talking about was dated 2009 and produced in far lower numbers. It was produced in association with Blue Peter, the TV program, as the design on that coin was the winning design from a competition they ran.

      • Terry McElligott

        Rob; I too asked this question a while back and received the following information from Customer Services – The 2009
        Special Blue Peter Edition 50p coin is not included in the circulation mintage
        figures because it was not issued into circulation. The 2009 coin had an issue
        limit of 50,000 coins but only 19,751 were sold.

        I trust
        that this information will be of interest to you.

        I hope this is what you were looking for?

        • Rob G

          Thanks Terry, this is exactly the information i was looking for! It is in fact far rarer than i had thought! It seems obvious now that it would not be included in mintage figures, as it was not issued into circulation, but it does seem odd that there is no mention of it anywhere….

  • Peter Lewis

    How many of the earlier design Tercentenary Claim of Rights Scottish £2 coins were minted.
    The coin was only issued in Scotland, with the rest of the Uk, having a coin to celebrate the Tercentenary of the Bill of Rights.

    I have a Mary Rose £2 coin,I know it’s from 2011. But this one has no date & no writing around the side. Could this make it really rare? Could it be worth a lot??

    • Matthew

      Hi Lee
      What you likely have there is a forgery. Many are hitting ebay at the moment.
      Things to look out for;
      Does the raised surfaces of the coin appear ‘frosted’ (Proof like) and Is the edge writing missing.
      Compare the edge of your Mary Rose coin to that of a normal £2. You’ll notice that on your Mary Rose the lines are more spaced out. If this was an error, the edge lines would be the same

  • Peter Lewis

    The pre 1999 low circulation £2coins, the bulkier low circulation coins.
    There was one introduced to celebrate the Trecentenary of the Bill of Rights.
    Scotland had their own specially minted version,celebrating their Claim of Rights Bill.

    That coin,i believe to be even rarer or of similar mintage to the Kew Gardens 50p.

    The coin was only made available in the small presentation packs, and was unique to Scotland, never released in the rest of the UK.

  • Erin

    Question. I have a 1994 Bailiwick Of Jersey One Penny Coin with Queen Elizabeth The Second On The Front. There is a strange, S-shaped raise just under the word queen. I thought maybe it was a printing mistake, but I can find no record of such an error anywhere. Help?

  • Nicola Middlemass

    Hi I have a 1998 £2 coin where the outer brass rim is reversed is it worth anything ?

  • Mike

    why is the £2 coin 2014 YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU fetching big money on Ebay

    • John Hamer

      I would also like to know about this as our daughter has one and we have seen the huge prices on eBay.

      • Terri Ann Emsley

        It is due to the your country needs you not being easily read, also the dots around the queens head apparently don’t line up and most importantly the writing around the rim is upside down, it should read ok with the queens head facing up.

    • Apple

      Some of the WW1 £2 coins have an error, its the writing on the outer edge, its upside down. if you hold your coin with the queens head facing up, look at the writing on the edge should be the right way up, if it isn’t and u have to turn it to read it then that coin is worth something. 1 sold on eBay for £500. If the writing is the right way up it wont be worth much more than it’s face value.

      • Mike

        Many thanks for you’re reply Apple. I had forgotten all about my Q as it was nearly a year ago, I have 4 such coins and had placed them in my glass cabinet and forgot all about them, so when you replied I quickly went to check on them and found that three of them had upside down writing on the edge.

        • Apple

          Hi Mike, That’s fab news for you then, 3 you lucky thing. I’ve only got one, but it’s better than none : ) I’m holding onto mine for a while and in time they’ll become more sought after as most people who have them will hold onto them. Any collectors who don’t have one will then pay a higher price for them. Keep in touch about what you do with yours, I’d find it interesting to know if you sell them and price you got etc. . . or whether like me you’ll hold onto them.

          • Mike

            Thanks A, if I choose to sell them i will keep you posted

  • Hope Owen

    I have a 1998 bailiwick of jersey queen Elizabeth the second £1 coin, worth holding onto?

  • Andrew Kevin Hope

    What kind of two-pence is the middle one?
    I sort of cleaned the first two-pence and that isn’t the same colour. The two-pence furthest right is the same year (1989) and that isn’t the same colour either.
    Any help in identifying the metal would be great! :-)

    • Samuel Rogers

      I would advise to carefully clean coins as it can damage them. There is nothing special about the middle coin, it is just how the dirt has settled on it

      did you get a reply ot his as I have one also

    • Samuel Rogers

      This is what the Royal Mint say about edging enscriptions:
      Sometimes the top of the edge inscription will be pointing towards the obverse of the coin and at other times it will be pointing to the reverse of the coin. There is no right or wrong way. The reason for this is because the edge inscription is rolled onto the coin blank before the blank is struck between two dies to impart the “heads” and “tails”. Depending how the blank falls into the coin press determines the way in which the design is struck in relation to the edge inscription. With ordinary circulation coins being struck at over 700 coins per minute it is simply not possible to ensure that each coin is struck with the edge inscription pointing in the same direction.

  • Rob Webster

    I have a two pound coin with lord Kitchener on for the ww1 remembrance, why are some valued at £400 and the others only under £100. How do i know if this one is valuable ? thanks

    • Terri Ann Emsley

      the your country needs is not legible, the dots around the Queens head are faded and most important the writing on the edge of coin should be readable with the Queens Head facing up, but on the rare ones its upside down.

    • Apple

      Hi Rob, some of the WW1 £2 coins are worth more than their face value, some have an error, its the writing on the outer edge, its upside down. if you hold your coin with the queens head facing up, look at the writing on the edge it should be the right way up and readable, if it isn’t and you have to turn it over to read it then that coin is worth something. 1 sold on eBay for £500. If the writing is the right way up it wont be worth much more than it’s face value.

    I am sure hoping that somebody can help me. I have found a double headed British coin with Queen Elizabeth the second it’s when she was young and it is her on both sides of the coin it is very weather but very easily to read it looks like it was two coins glued together to make a pendant I guess. I did find an article about a double sided British coin with the young Queen Elizabeth on it and that is exactly what the coins look like they founded in Jerusalem I am trying to find anything because ours is in excellent condition and we have put it away for safekeeping but we don’t know where else to look
