1985 halfpenny - rare or not ?

Post#1 » Fri May 26, 2017 8:23 pm

I have read articles that indicate some rarity to this coin, due to a lot of them melted prior to circulation. I have not been able to find a lot of information on any prior sales, so curious if any readers have any insights into this - thanks

The 1985 half penny is one of the scarcest years for the denomination. It is scarce, I wouldn't label it as rare. The coins had a short period in circulation, and relatively small quantity have survived Irish Coinage is the best place for info on Irish coins.

I have no idead of what its market value would be currently, but I wouldn't pay more than 20 Euro for one. You never know when a bag of them will turn up!
