    Default 20 Pence Royal Mint Error

    Anyone heard of this error by Royal Mint on 20 Pence coins? There is thousands of these in circulation and one has just been reported in the news to have sold for £5000

    So get looking in your change! and guess what i have one!!

    Hi Bloicy

    Have you seen how many proto-scammers are on Fleabay with 'dated' coins
    to try and get round selling ordinary 20p pieces?

    my concern is for anyone who makes forged coins its a perfect time to get making them with no date on them, they could probably make a fortune on them..
