How much are your 2 pence pieces worth? You could be walking around with a mini gold mine in your purse/wallet without you knowing!
A rare batch of 2 pence pieces have been on sale on eBay, one went for £100 and another was going for £1,500.
The special coins were made between 1971 and 1982 and they say ‘new pence’ instead of ‘two pence’.
If you have one of these fancy coins, you could be in for a treat this year!
Royal Mint doesn’t know how many there are in existence but they’re already going for £500 or over at auction – but only if it carries the 1983 date on it.
People have also been cashing in on the new £5 notes and there were also 5 50p coins that were circulating that were worth.
And it’s also worth trawling through you 20ps as in 2009, the Royal Mint produced a load without the date stamped on and they’re worth up to £50.
So get digging around in your purses, because you could be carrying some serious cash around with you….
