The final coins needed to complete the collection!

Image
With another year almost over, it is time to check on which coins I need to complete my collection and fill the albums.50p Coins: I need three more 50p coins in total.
The only non-Olympic coin that I need is the rarest- Kew Gardens.
I only need two more Olympic coins, which are two of the rarest- football and triathlon.











£2 Coins: I need nine more £2 coins designs in total.
Luckily, I already have the rarest of the £2 coins- Commonwealth Games Northern Ireland, however, there are still three more commonwealth games coins in the set, which are almost as rare to find.










I also need the following ones, which are quite rare, so would be great to find:

4. 2016- The final Shakespeare coin in the three-part set- tragedies.
5. 2015- Magna Carta
6. 2015- WWI Navy Centenary.
7. 2013- Underground roundel.
8. 2012- Olympic Rio handover
9. 2011- Mary Rose

New coins for the collection!

For Christmas, I got four more coins to add to the albums. These were three A-Z 10p coins and one £2! Two of the A-Z 10p coins were 2019- Y for yeoman warder, and Z for zebra crossing, which were the final two to complete the 2019 set. I also got a 2018- T for tea, which I also needed.


The £2 that I got was part of the Shakespeare set- the histories coin. This a good addition, because I now only need the tragedies to complete the 3 part 2016 set- comedies, which I already had, histories and tragedies.


An incredible 50p hunt!

On Saturday, I had a fantastic £50 of 50p coins hunt, where I found a bag full of commemorates and more- 26 in total! Somebody must have been emptying out their collection! Some of these include 2x Olympic basketballs, 2x Benjamin Britten coins, various Beatrix Potters and other common ones (see images below).
