Sherlock Holmes BU 50pm misprint

Recommended Posts

Has anybody heard anything about a misprint on the Sherlock Holmes 50p (general circulation). A little old lady has just been talking to me about it and I said I would see what I can find out.  I can’t see how there would be a misprint on just a few as it would mean switching the die at the mint unless it’s deliberate

Probably a slow news day story - every now and again they talk about coins worth thousands that in fact you can find in your pocket if you look. Not much else is happening around the world for the journalists to write about, so why not raise some old stories about circulating coinage.

As an example - in June, The Express printed this: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/1142623/ebay-rare-coin-sherlock-holmes-50p-coin-selling-uk-value-worth-royal-mint

The only type worth reading from this story is:  it is not necessarily rare or worth as much as the selling price would suggest.
