Nowt to do with BXs - Olympic 50p pieces!

Post by KevR »

Mate of mine is a collector os.. well, just about everything really. Cars, bicycles, milk bottles, house bricks, cigarette packets, Dinky toys, the Radio Times...

Anyway, he's trying to collect all the limited edition Olympic 50p pieces - the ones with the different sports on the back.
He's only missing two - sailing and .... bugger, forgot - I'll get back to you.
So check you pockets - cash* paid for the missing ones!








* I'll pay at least 50p!

So you can buy a 50p piece from the Royal Mint for £2.99 :?

Aye, or for a mere £1350 for a set of 29 struck in sterling silver. :shock:

Well I suppose it is the primary function of the Royal Mint to make money :lol:

I am short of four to complete my collection - all are on ebay, most at more cost than The Royal Mint. Have quite a few spares to exchange....

I'll ask Nick which spares he's got and maybe you can do a deal! I've got the show jumping/equestrian one if that's any good to you...?

Edit: It's Rowing and Basketball that he's missing, if anyone's got them.
