Shortly after the coins were issued, some experts predicted that they would be worth roughly £50, depending on condition. Other experts predicted that the price would climb towards £300 within a decade. A 2009 auction on eBay closed at £7,100 for a single coin, but it was uncertain if that amount was ever paid to the seller, says The Independent. Buyers should be wary. Older versions of the 20-pence coin had the date on the reverse, and disreputable sellers sometimes offer these as the no-date version.
