find these 20 pence coins and get 50 quid for returning them!!!!

Post by clairesy on Mon Jun 29, 2009 9:56 pm

Thousands of Brits with a new 20p in their pockets could find themselves 50 richer after a mix-up at the Royal Mint.



The coins were accidentally minted without a date Around 200,000 of the coins have rocketed in value after the manufacturer admitted it had forgotten to put a date on them. They are worth 50 if immediately returned, but are set to rise even further in value because of their rarity. Nick Hart, of the London Mint, said: "If you hunt around and find one you're extremely lucky. "Mistakes like this not only fascinate people but also have considerable value-increase significance." Workers at the mint have been left with their tails between their
legs after leaving the date stamp off the heads side of the coins.


The error occurred amid the production of a newly-designed 20p piece.

The mint has issued a recall both to remove the coins from circulation and to keep track of them.

Lucky owners are asked to register their details at www.undated20p.com and then post the dateless coin back.

Alternatively, those looking to keep their new-found collectable can register and request a presentation box.

Mr Hart put an optimistic slant on the mint's "extremely rare error".

"(It) will certainly get the public looking at the coins in their
pockets again and noticing the excellent new designs launched by the
Royal Mint on our coinage," he said.

Just rummaged in the wifes purse, (No point looking in my pocket, I'm always broke!) but no such luck! And now that the news is out you can bet your chances of finding one now are somewhere between nothing and zero!
