Then get your wallets out and check for dodgy 20p coins.

Last year, the Royal Mint set about re-designing 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p and £1 coins. Due to a mistake when 20p coins were being pressed last year, there are now a batch of 20p coins in circulation which have no date at all on them. Read more here.

No joy for me on this occasion, sadly. Have a look - you never know.

    You mean Royal Mint :p

    This is fairly old news. Alas, I don't have one. I keep checking, though. I do save all my 20ps in a ladybird and save it for special things :)

    You mean Royal Mint :p
    As the Polish would say at this point "Ah, kurva!"

    You can work out what expletive this translates into.

    I really can't be bothered to look through all my silver... will they go up or down in price over time?

    One went on eBay for £5800.

    Up.

    There's some idiot (or genius) selling old 20ps on Ebay, because they used to have the date on the tails side.

    I found £12 worth of 20p coins at home - out of those only 1 was even the new design.
