2008 Undated 20p Rare Error Mule

2008 Undated 20p Rare Error Mule Obverse
The holy grail of change collecting: the rare undated 20p. An interesting error occurred at The Royal Mint in November 2008: a small number of Twenty Pence pieces were struck without the year. These British coins were the first in more than three hundred years to enter circulation with no date. The Mint reports that of the 136 million Twenty Pence pieces minted that month, only about 250,000 coins were minted with this unique error. The issue occurred because an old obverse (‘heads’) design was used with the new royal shield of arms reverse, introduced in this year. The previous Tudor rose design had the date on either side of the crown. When this was replaced with the shield the date was moved to the other side. Well, it was moved on most 20ps but not these ones which bear no date at all! These coins have been circulated so will show the signs of wear typical of change that has been in wallets and cash registers. The only difference is this unusual error. Our undated 20ps are carefully authenticated by our expert staff and shipped for free in the UK from our coin shop in Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire.
