Is the change in your pocket actually worth hundreds?

Written by:
The loose change in your pocket could be worth hundreds of pounds more than its face value. Here are the top five coins you may want to treasure rather than spend.

Coins have undergone numerous changes over the years, whether they have been made smaller, harder to copy, or made to commemorate a special event or anniversary.

But sometimes mistakes happen, such as an incorrect inscription added or a date omitted, which can significantly increase a coin’s worth. It’s not always easy to find out how many slipped through the net so you may be unwittingly carrying one of these coins around.

Below we look at some of the ordinary coins you may be carrying in your purse or wallet which can actually be worth many times the face value of your change.
