The London mint (the people in charge of making UK coines) have made an error with the 20p and they have no date. The coins can be sold back to the UK gov for £50 however on ebay they are going for as much as £500 and even £4,000.00 for one (wish I was that seller!).
So make sure you check your change!

Thats kind of like the old US copper pennies. The amount of copper in the penny was worth more than the penny itself, nowadays they make them out of zinc I think. That rhymed. :wink:

They are being sold for that much... but are there any buyers?
