The perfect way to start collecting is now here – with the Great British Coin Hunt from The Royal Mint. Your album has been designed to house the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games 50p coins you can find in circulation, decorated with some sports you’ll see on the coins like Rowing, Javelin, Handball and even Cycling! Seek out the coins, pop them into the folder and when you’ve found all the coins – the star of the Great British Coin Hunt is the Football 50p and you’ll need to look hard for that one! – You can purchase your completer medallion and finish your set.
But why stop, when there are more great albums to continue your Great British Coin Hunt? You could move on to the other 50p folder with characters you’ll see on the coins like Britannia, Scouts and Guides and even a panda! Or the £1 folder, decorated with national symbols just like the coins themselves. Or maybe the £2 album, with Florence Nightingale and Charles Darwin (complete with ape!) on the cover? Whether you’re new to collecting or you have an interest in coins and want to get a young person involved, the Great British Coin Hunt is the perfect way to start.
