The 20p coin that could bag you a cool £50
Quick everyone! Turn out your pockets! If you’ve got a 20p coin that has no date on either the front or back, you could be quids-in to the tune of £50.
The coins in question are the new design 20p pieces that were introduced last year with the date stamped on the heads side instead of the tails side. A rogue run of between 50,000 and 200,000 of them were minted with the old-style front and new-style back, meaning that they were dateless.
Now The London Mint Company, a private rare coin-dealing company, is offering anyone who finds one £50, in the hope of selling them on to collectors for an even higher price. Which is what any good poker player would call ‘showing your hand far too soon, like a complete and utter tit end.'
So if you find one of these quirky coins, come and see us first – there’s every chance we’ll give you £51 for it, before we try and make a considerably higher sum from flogging it on eBay.
