Although there have been reports of the Tom Kitten 50p going for hundreds of pounds on eBay, there were just under 10,000,000 (million) of these coins minted in 2017 and so there’s nothing especially rare about this coin, despite his popularity.
✅ Tom kitten 50p worth
This coin is currently selling for between £3-£4 at online auction. It’s definitely one of the Potter coins that can reach higher prices than others, but it’s still a relatively new coins and it could be quite some time before Tom kittens able to fetch big money, if at all.
Still, if you have one, keep it if you possibly can, as collectors take more and more out of circulation and coins get damaged, the price will increase.
