Undated 20p Coin Sell for £100′s on eBay
This unique event has already caused a great deal of excitement among coin collectors. The Royal Mint strikes all of Britain’s circulating coinage and is at the forefront of minting technology the world over. Its stringent quality control procedures mean that an error such as this is exceptionally rare indeed.
The error involves a mismatch of designs for the 20p.
In this instance the NEW reverse side (tails) and the OLD Queen’s portrait side have been put onto the same coin. The old heads side has NO DATE and this has been matched to the new reverse which also has NO DATE which means the coin has no date on it at all.
The London Mint Office will pay you 50 Pounds for one, however a quick search on eBay shows that the actual undated 20p coins on both sides are selling for ?100′s and in on eBay US selling for $1000′s.
But be careful as there are many auctions selling 20p’s which have a date on one side so worth only 20p, but bidders have bidded over £10 for these.

This is the new design 20p piece – and the version shown above is worth only its face value of 20p
