    the banks are giving 500 quid apparently, hold on to it or sell it sensibly, they may be worth lots o lolly, you got nothing to lose, you only paid 20p for it.

    I heard they'll be worth a LOT more in years to come so the best thing to do would be to hold on to it. If this wasn't true why would the Mint be paying to get them back!? x

    Nothing to do with the value, apparantly cos theres so many of them the value is negligable and people are never going to recoup their money. RM want them back because its been about the biggest mistake theyve ever made and they want them out of circulation. Something like 40,000 of them so theyre not that rare really. Cant believe someone would pay thousands... clearly more money than sense lol

    Not sure how true this is,
    but the story is that only 500 were made and accidently went out, (this was when they were flipping the coin to print the date on the reverse. But 500 never printed by accident).
    They went into circulation and now are worth a mint.
    My bf has a friend who sold his on ebay for about £500 he said.

    Now don't take my word for it, but this is the story that i heard 3 times from different people.

    If you google it it says 'tens of thousands' were released, which is why they wont be as valuable in the future, who knows :)

    I wonder how many are in circulation in total? I still think - even if it was tens of thousands that went out, they will be valuable in the future.
    I'm not talking about our lifetime - or even our grandchildren's lifetime. But one day they'll be worth lots IMHO. x

    Its something ill tell my grankids in years to come how much ppl were willing to pay for a 20p lol.........If my silly body ev er lets me have children that is LOL.
