Snowman 50 pence options on eBay
eBay sellers have been quick to offer variations of the Snowman 50p coin on eBay. Make sure you understand what you are buying!
The Brilliant Uncirculated coin when purchased from the Royal Mint is NOT coloured. eBay sellers now offer this plain coin with a coloured decal stuck to it, to imitate how the Silver Proof coin looks. The Silver Proof coin sells for hundred of pounds so don't get fooled into thinking a plain coin with the sticker is the Silver version.
The easiest way to be sure you are buying the Silver Proof coin is to check that the listing includes a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) as issued by The Royal Mint. This will have a unique number on it between 1 and 15,000. Low COA (less than 1,000) numbered coins have been selling for above regular market value this week as UK coin collectors see this as a bonus to the coin.
