Rare 20p Coins Are Worth £50

In this credit crunch climate we're living in, this post may just come in handy for some extra cash......

The Royal Mint, who are the people who design our British coins, have accidentally released a batch of 20p coins that don't have the date featured on both sides of the coin. Between 50,000 and 200,000 of the coins were minted with a new 'tails' design on one side and the older 'heads' image on the other.

The Royal mint are offering £50, yes £50 which is £49.80 more than what you can buy with 20p (lol), to the first 10,000 people who register their rare 20p coins.

Nick Hart of the London Mint Office dealership said: "We believe this extremely rare error will certainly get the public looking at the coins in their pockets again and noticing the excellent new designs launched by the Royal Mint last year on our coinage."

People, get to looking in your pockets, purses, bags, could make a lot of money. I'm sure I had one of these coins the other day, but I spent it...oh well
