There are over 50 different £2 coins in circulation. But there are just few which true value is a small fortune. Such one example has been listed on eBay, whose owner asks £1 million ($1,2 million) for it.
Before listing the precious denomination on eBay, the seller presented it to a local dealer who offered to pay approximately $6179 or £5,000 for it, but rejected the price, claiming they had the feeling it was worth more based on the reaction.
However, the coin is used and reads Engineer 1806-1859 Isambard Kingdom Brunel – who is knowingly considered as “one of the most prolific figures in engineering history”. It features the Queen’s head on one side – much like ordinary coins but is touted as a piece that many may have never seen before.
If you’re interested in this coin, it is yet to sell and there are 31 people watching it.
