Default Have you got a 20p worth mnore in your pocket?

Take a close look at that shiny new 20p piece in your purse or pocket - it could be worth a lot more than you think.

A rare error at the Royal Mint means that tens of thousands of the coins produced earlier this year don't have 2009 stamped on them.

Coin experts say the lack of a date makes them worth 50 each, and potentially much more in future.



EBay has been inundated with coins for sale as those who have found them attempt to cash in.

Many sellers are offering purchasers the chance to 'buy it now' at prices of up 20,000.

Several are hoping to get more than 10,000 for their 20p. One seller appeared to have fetched 7,100 at 2pm yesterday - 35,500 times its face value - although it is not clear whether the coin has been paid for.
