U.K. £2 Coins :: How Much Are They Really Worth ?
Commonwealth Games £2 piece        


There's an awful lot of nonsense online about the value of some modern British coins, particularly the 50p, £1, and £2 ones. We receive many enquiries about these, often from people admitting that they are confused by the conflicting information they have found.

Here's a couple of facts to start with;
{1} Very, very few of the two pound coins are worth anything more than their face value.
{2} People can offer coins online for whatever price they choose.

What we are trying to do here is to give an idea of actual sale prices of these coins. The largest numbers of these sold online in the UK are on Ebay, but we are forever telling people to ignore what people are asking for ("hoping for"), and look at what prices the coins have actually sold at. On Ebay this can be done by clicking the "sold listings" box.
People are understandably confused when they see lists of these coins, often described as "very rare", but with hundreds of them on affer at any time !

Methodology; We have looked at each coin, and the prices they currently show as Ebay "sold" listings. The very highest prices have been ignored, as have the very lowest (these are the glitches and off-the-wall sales, and sometimes might include sales which failed to be completed).
For the best few coins we therefore show prices at the upper end of the range (but not very highest) and at the lower end of the range (but not lowest), and ignore postage (taking a little off any sales which have been "free postage"). We also show a figure which represents the approximate middle of the bunch.
For the more standard and commoner coins we give a generalisation of sale prices.

We list here only the pictorial/special design £2 coins.
Prices are for standard issue single coins (not proof or silver or gold versions, or special packs etc.). If you are thinking of selling any of the cheaper ones in an online auction, remember that you will have to pay fees out of the sale price.
