    I found one in my change this weeek, might mean they are now in circulation.

    I think that we should just hold onto all 50p that we get, take the normal ones out of circulation. Means more chance of finding one.

    I found one today in my change from my prescription, after finding out I have trapped a nerve each side of my neck. I guess good things come the bad.

    I thought I'd already posted this... but maybe not :P

    My other half went through over £500 worth of 50ps at work, and managed to find 2... yes just 2! But it does mean they are starting to appear.

    Still puzzled why the Royal Mint didn't launch them earlier...It looks like 2008 will see a regular amount of them!

    The reason there are so few in circulation, is probably because as soon as a Scout finds one, they keep it!

    There are probably £1,000's worth of them around, but they are all in the back pockets of Scout Leaders!

    Got one yesterday. Or rather my eldest son did. Seems he spotted it in somebody else's change and ended up buying it from them for £1 - just in order to win the Group prize for being the first to get one in general circulation. I'll have to think of a prize now, and make sure it's worth less than 50p!

    Lightbulb Scout 50p

    We've just added up all the bag packing money.

    Out of 1242 50p pieces we found 3 Scout ones.

    Works out as a 1 in 414 chance of finding one I think!
