    The olympic '2012' 50 pence pieces

    Hello all.

    Has anyone come across one of these yet?

    They are the 2011 new 50p's that are promoting the olympics.

    I thought I'd be really sad and try to collect them (pokemon never took off in my household)

    So I have 3 so far. Do you have any and what have you got?

    I am notlooking to swap on this thread or anything, it would just interest me to see what other designs there are out there.

    Wow, thank you.

    I have the rowing, table tennis, and the pentaltlon one.

    I am not paying £2.99 for it to arrive in fancy case though!!

    Will they just hand them over if they actually have any?

    My step-dad is a pub landlord so I suppose I could ask him to keep his eyes peeled?!

    There was loads of the rowing ones in my till on Sat. Haven't seen any other designs yet though x

    If you see any other designs at your till, pocket them....and replace with an ordinary 50pence of course

    will do if i get another one gonna start collecting them too

    My sons is trying to collect these coins and so far has 15/29.

    He has a couple of spares, so if anybody wishes to swap please leave a comment below.

    Have you tried at your local bank? Ask one of the cashiers nicely if they can keep any that they find to one side & you'll come in each afternoon to collect.

    As a coin collector (sad i know! lol) Ive got every one of the sets released from the royal mint since the year of my birth. I brought the complete set!

    Hi I am collecting them and wonderd what the spair ones are?

    I've got 19/29 Olympic disciplines 50p's and the £2 handover coin and I'm quite impressed by the designs, done by members of the public. I've got loads of swapsies too but hope to exchange in Eastbourne. I'm asking a local 'Happy Shopper' to keep an eye out for them with a promise of a bottle of wine for them all (7 staff) when I get the lot. Ouch!
    One thing does puzzle me is that they are dated 2011. I wonder if the royal mint are producing a second set dated 2012, which would make more sense.

    do you have boxing ,fencing ,football ,handball ,sailing ,wheelchair rugby or wrestling
