You may be richer than you think!


No – this is not some mad pyramid or dodgy, get rich quick scheme. Check your loose change ASAP.
The Royal Mint at Llantrisant, near Cardiff has produced a duff batch of 20p coins. The exciting news is that these coins are worth up to £50.
The faulty coins have no dates stamped on them. The dates should be on the Queen’s head side of the coin, but are missing.
This only applies to coins with the lion’s tail - NOT the Tudor Rose.

So get your purses, wallets, jars, and piggy banks out girls and boys, and start looking – oh, and don’t forget to look behind the sofa!

Have looked through all my loose change and sadly did not find any of these more valuable coins. How interesting that they should be so keen to get them back they are willing to pay a reward!

Could be very lucrative - keep looking!!

I wish I'd known...I've just angered a shop assistant with my lack of notes and abundance of change.
