The Jemima Puddle Duck 50p is the rarest and most sought after 50 pence coin from The Royal Mint Beatrix Potter coin collection with a release date in 2016.
When the official mintage figures were published, it was confirmed that only 2.1 million Jemima Puddle-Duck coins were put into circulation. That is less than 25% of the number of 2016 Peter Rabbit coins.
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 much is the Jemima Puddle-Duck 50p worth?
As a result of their scarcity, the coins are worth more than their 50p face value to a coin collector. We have seen eBay listings of £7 to £10 for circulated coins and higher for un-circulated. Out of 2,000 ebay sales of this coin in the last 3 months the average selling price was £9.50
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.
See their BU coin page for more information.
There were 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.
