My Weird Hobby, a catch up

Earlier this year I shared with you my weird hobby. I collect coins. I am a coin collector. Since I had such a lovely response to the post, I have decided to give you all a little bit of an update with how my collection is going so far. A catch up basically.

In July, when I published the first post, I had £28 worth of coooooool coins, in a mixture of 50ps, £1s and £2s. Well it is safe to say, it has definitely grown as now I have over a whopping £50. £58 to be precise. I think I have included them all in here but if I haven't then sorryyyyyy!

I know, I know, it is getting out of hand but I just cannot help myself! I even have my family and friends looking for me still, oh dear!

So here is 'My Weird Hobby, a catch up'...

This was my collection 6 months ago...

And look how many I have now!

For this, I am only going to pay attention to my new coins so if you want to have a look at the ones I already had in the previous post then click here.

Like before, I will say what they are for and the year they have on the back/front and any information that is on the coin and also what information is on Royal Mint website.

So here are my new additions to my weird hobby...

  1. Oh my gosh, I'm so glad I've found a fellow coin collector. I've only just started collecting coins, so mine is teeny weeny in comparison to yours. But I fell head over heels for the Peter Rabbit 50p, so I just had to collect the set - I now only need Squirrel Nutkin to complete it!
    I've started to branch out though and recently got the Hollow Crown £2, the Charles Dickens 200th Anniversary £2 and the WWF 50p, which was very exciting!
    Thank you so much for giving me the space to rave about coins!

  2. This couldn't have came at a better time! Last week I broke my money saving pot open and it had nearly £500 in 50's and £2, I had no idea how much was in there until I counted it up! There's so many 50p designs isn't there? I know some are worth a lot, I might have a go at selling some haha.

    I definitely recommend those pots, they're a fun way to save. I just bought another one Haha.
