Could the luck be returning in this 50p hunt?

Image
This Saturday, the luck returned and I found three coins that are worth more than face value, which I haven't found for a while!

Common coins:


1. 1x Victoria Cross: Heroic Acts
2. 1x Benjamin Bunny
3. 2x Representation of the People Act
4. 1x Paddington at the Palace
5. 1x Sherlock Holmes
6. 1x Paddington at the Tower




Rarer coins:

Firstly, I found a dirty NHS, which I haven't found for a while. If it was in good condition, it would sell for an average of £1.19 on eBay.




Next, I found a Beatrix Potter 50p, which I seem to have quite good luck with, as I have found quite a few!
It can sell on eBay for an average of £1. 





Finally, I found an Olympic: Equestrian, which I haven't ever found in a hunt before! It can sell on eBay for £1.75.



I hope that the luck will return for next week's hunt!





Two coins more than face value in this week's 50p hunt!

This week, I luckily found two coins that are worth more than face value and five common coins.

Face Value Coins:
    1) 2x Sherlock Holmes
    2) 2x Paddington at the Palaces
    3) 1x Representation of the People Act




Coins worth more than face value:

     Firstly, I found a Beatrix Potter Anniversary 50p, which has a reasonably high mintage of 6,900,000, but still sells on eBay for £1.



     Finally, I found a 2018 a Tailor of Gloucester 50p, which sells on eBay for £1.19 and has a mintage of 3,900,000.

Lots of Sherlock Holmes in this week's 50p hunt!
