ive red online that if the 2p coin has 'new pence' on it instead off 'two pence' it's worth a couple off hundred quid?
anyone know if it's true or who i should go to to ask about it? e.g bank or post office?
thanks!!!

Ahhh, that's the 20p piece which isn't dated. Yes, worth a fair bit, I have heard of people paying a few hundred pounds for them.

Nope, worth 2p each. Only worth more if they are dated 1983

I still don't understand why a halfpenny is pronounced like haypenny.

I still don't get that - you're only cutting out one character, what's the point?
