How much are the old portrait £2's (2015?) which never entered circulation fetching now?

Itís surprising that the 2015 £2 Magna Carta & WWI Royal Navy coins with the IRB head (with a mintage figure around 50,000) command a lot less than the Kew Gardens 50p which a mintage figure of 210,000.

No, that is not surprising because few people are doing dateruns of the standard circulating coins while many people collect commemoratives.

Furthermore in general collectors are interested to collect all reverse designs and are not interested in the obverse design nor in small intentional variations to the reverse design as made by the mint with the sole purpose to cash in.
