Great Britain 50 Pence (National Health Service) 1998
Several versions of this coin were issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the UK's National Health Service. Most coins are not valuable, but some are.
If you have a 50 pence issued for circulation and it has been circulated, even a little, it is worth 50 pence. But if your coin is special and was issued for collectors only, it can be valuable.
COINS ISSUED FOR CIRCULATION:
worn: face value (50 pence in the UK)
average circulated: face value
well preserved: face value
fully uncirculated: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value

To be valuable, coins issued for collectors must be in their original government packaging.
