Which 10p coins are worth the most? Check your piggy banks!

Which 10p coins are worth the most? Check your piggy banks!

In March 2018, the Royal Mint released 2.6 million new 10p coins to celebrate iconic things or place in Britain, some of these coins are now selling for quite a bit more than 10p, although your experience may vary!

How do I get the most money for a coin?

Uncirculated sometimes known as ‘Mint Condition’ is always best, this means the coin hasn’t gone in a shop till or someone’s pocket etc, it’s literally come from the Royal Mint to you or via the Post Office to you. Those in protective containers or decorative original packets should give a premium.

Can I not just buy these from the Royal Mint?

Yes, although stock often gets depleted. Royal Mint sell each 10p for £2, or you can buy the whole set for £61.90.

What exactly does each alphabet letter mean and how much is the TOP amount I can expect to earn (each link takes you to eBay sold listing for that coin)?

Note: These figures are based on eBay SOLD listings, you may end up only getting a fraction of this yourself, you might also be better off holding on to the coins for the future.

Note #2: Some of these listings are for multiple coins! 

  1. A – Angel of the North (rumoured to be the one worth the most now and in the future)
  2. B – James Bond
  3. C – Cricket
  4. D – Double Decker Bus
  5. E – English Breakfast
  6. F – Fish & Chips

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
