    Is Your Loose Change Worth A Small Fortune?

    A special 50p piece featuring Kew Gardens is now changing hands for £50 

    There are other coins in circulation that are worth a tidy sum. See the article Here
    for more information and photos.

    ​That's good, glad someone benefited from the post.

    If anyone else finds a coin worth more than face value then let us know here.

    ​Please do not get your hopes up. They are not worth £15. Max £2 (_;)

    I have one of the undated 20p coins..

    I've got a 2p coin similar to the one in the pic saying 'new pence', so I've actually got £700.00 sitting in front me?

    I've definitely had the Kew Gardens 50p a couple of times... doh!
    Probably let the 1983 new pence 2p slip through my fingers too. Will have to pay more attention in future!

    Sounds like there are forged Kew coins out there, the Queen's eyes will help you identify the real coin: checkyourchange.co.uk/50p…ew/

    Yes... if it's the 1983 coin.

    For more than the face value, that promised in this thread

    This might be worth a couple of pence if I'm lucky....

    My brother found 2 of the Guy Fawkes £2 coins in his change jar and has sold them to a local coin collector for £15 each.

    I've not checked my coins yet but I might do at the weekend when I have more time.
