A 50p coin has sold for almost 270 times its face value on eBay. The rare coin was released in 2009 to mark 250 years since Kew Gardens opened in 1759.

The Royal Mint estimate roughly 210,000 were made. It features the famous Chinese Pagoda at the Royal Botanic Garden on the tails side with the Queen's face as normal on the other. After a tense 19-way bidding war, it was finally sold for £134.89.

The "Kew Gardens 50p 2009 rare circulated fifty pence coin" listing on eBay had a starting price of £50. Change checking website Coin Hunter puts the average resale price for the Kew Gardens 50p between £150.89 and £161.50, meaning this coin has sold just below the price range reports the LiverpoolEcho.

Change checking website Coin Hunter puts the average price range for the Kew Gardens 50p being sold between £150.89 and £161.50, meaning that this particular coin has sold for a below-average price. However, there have also been examples of this coin selling for as much as £200 in the past.

If you find a Kew Gardens 50p in your change - check the date on it. This is because the Royal Mint reissued a batch of the coins in 2019 to celebrate 50 years of the 50p - and this version sells for as much.

But you could still be in for an exciting payday if you find one of these, as they can sell for between £70 and £80 on eBay.
