Comparative Rarity Score is a measure of coins availability in comparison to other 50p coin designs. High scores in themselves do not mean there is a small number of a coin in existence, just that the coins do not come up in general circulation very often.

The number of coins that enter circulation is shown where available. In order to generate rarity scores / listing positions, we make some assumptions in relation to coins in existance, but no longer in general circulation. This is based on the number of years the coin has been in circulation and on a sample of 5000 50p coins.

The term rare as used on this webpage refers to a coins availibility in active circulation (coins not held in a private collection), not in terms of the number of coins that exist.
