Hello and welcome.


From the list, there isn't any piece that is particularly scarce - if they are all typical / average circulated pieces, then the total value would be very modest, and many dealers would probably decline to purchase as such.


If any of the earlier pieces are in high grade, then it may be worthwhile to sell individually on an online auction if you are able to take good macro pictures.

p.s ScottO I have just looked at your links - I have a couple of those 20p's with date only on head side - I can understand how intriguing this collecting is, you never know what you will see next.

As advised your coins are all very common and only worth anything in UNC.

20p's with date one side are worth 20p.

Even the dateless 20p's are now only £40 and I expect this will be £40 for the next 25 years....they are vastly over rated and not a good investment.
