When the official mintage figures were published, it was confirmed that only 2.1 million 50p Jemima Puddle Duck coins were put into circulation.

That is less than 25% of the number of 2016 Peter Rabbit coins in circulation.

The coins in circulation that you may find in your pocket change will most likely show signs of wear from hitting other coins or being dropped. These are known as “circulated” condition coins.

How many 2016 Jemima Puddle-Duck 50p coins were minted?

Mintage figures for the Jemima Puddleduck 50p circulation coin that you will find in your change are 2,100,000 coins.

How much is the Jemima Puddle-Duck 50p worth?

As a result of their scarcity, the Jemima 50p coins may be worth more than their fifty pence face value to a coin collector. See our 50p coin values page for the current estimated value.

There were a few different versions of the Jemima coin issued by The Royal Mint.

The Brilliant Un-circulated (BU) edition of this coin was issued in a collectors folder so what most people would refer to as “mint condition”. These cost £10 plus postage at the time of issue but are now sold out at the mint.

There was also a coloured Silver Proof version of this coin with a maximum mintage of 16,000 priced at £55 each. Sellers are now asking hundreds of pounds for this coin.
