Depends, if you're selling them in bulk, you'll get little over face value. The ones in the presentation boxes assuming they're the official central bank Proof 50p and not some ordinary 50 in 3rd party packing then it's worth around 25 to 30 Euro. If you have any proofs in quantity I'd be interested.

Same thing with these, they aren't worth much over their face value. Theres buckets of these about because people were putting them away at the time. Again like the 50p's they did make special edition solid silver proof millenium pound coins in a presentation case which are worth about 30 euro max retail.

This is the only official special edition Millenium proof 50p ever made:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Ireland-988-1988...em120085941404

Proof means that both the blank planchets and the dies that strike the coins are highly polished before the coins are struck. Also they aren't just spat out of a machine in bulk like normal circulation coins so theres rarely a mark on them.

What you saw was most likely a normal circulation coin put into a 3rd party presentation case. Some sellers try and flog them like this but they're not official and not proof.

The offset strike is not that obvious, it is just visable in the top two castles, I will try put up pictures tomorrow.
