50 Years of the 50p (Set)

Recommended Posts

For those interested, the set of 50p's including a 2019 Kew are on sale from today.

These sets are limited to 3,500.

Make of it what you will, I have mine.. just wish they'd left it for a month or two, as this close to Christmas getting 10 wasn't an option.

All sold within 2 hours of writing.

Dammit, I should have bought 10. That would have been easy cash for real coins.

Many appear on ebay already and some have sold for consideably more than the RM price - many listings show as "Pre-Order".

If you blinked, you missed 'em.

 Your link (which didn't work, by the way!) takes me to the set on the RM site - however, "Buy Now" brings up many things but not that set. Certainly no "sold out" message.

The link seems to function perfectly still.

The only set left available is the crappy "old and 2008"  pairing for waaaaytoomuchmoney.

Everything else on teh page (once you've scrolled down) all shows as no longer available.

When I said "not working", I meant not here - however it does work if I copy/paste it into the address bar. Most links people post in these forums act as direct links when I click them. Yours is blue and apparently 'clickable' but it doesn't open a new tab, doesn't do anything.

But those items showing above don't appear anywhere I've gone to on their site - plenty of other cr*p but not those 50 years of 50p sets, though you do get the information about the set from the original link, but not anywhere else on the site.

How peculiar.

I'm not aware of doing anything untoward with the original link. All I did was went to that link and scrolled down (ignore all the bumf you see at the top about the 50p's and scroll down).

Apart tfrom the dodgy link, you're quite right - I just needed to scroll down! My mistake was clicking one of the buttons higher up.

Don’t get caught up in this type of thing, people on YT hype these things to the hilt and you’re eventually left floundering when the hype wears off.

remember, they are for sale at X price, they’ve not sold for X price. Even the gold proof set I wouldn’t bother with.

i don't like the fact that the kew isn't an original 2009 one but is being treated price wise like it is (i believe it has 3 dates on it,where the 2019 date on the obv) 

 i also don't like the fact the 50 "New Pence" was reduced in size too, kind of ruins it again, i guess it would have messed up the symmetry of the box too 🤷‍♀️

The rare Kew isn’t even the proof coin, it’s the circulation coin that the rare one 😆

Crikey, I was a bit slow there. Not surprised they went so quickly.

The majority of which are snide "Chinese"

At this rate , if I ever wanted to sell my Kew , it would be my 1st encapsulation. Uuuuugg...I've said it.

kev..Are you going to cash out on your £90 set and make £700+ ?

I'd like to, but I don't see it happening this decade.

Currently they're "only" doing about 300, so a couple of years in the stock cupboard might help :)
