London mint offices mess up again.

People in the UK might remember the story were some 20p coins where printed with out there date so now they are worth £50.00
Well the ad they placed in our paper today telling the public of this fact is wrong.
It is saying the coin with out the date printed on the back is the coin that should have been made where the picture that they have put next to it is tell you its the coin that they want back.
Also it said in the news papers stories these coins are worth £5000 now i do not know this is true because well you can't believe what the papers tell you.
Just wondering if its just this paper or is all the ads are wrong.
The paper i am reading tis that piece of trash called the people which i like to add I DID NOT BUY AND NEVER WOULD BUY.

Okay, I think I've got it.

The paper printed a picture of the mismatched coin. "The new-design reverse side (tails) and the old-design Queen's portrait side (heads) have been put on to the same coin, neither of which bears a date." (Source: UTV News).

But the text accompanying the picture offers a mistaken description of the coin in question--making it seem as if the mismatched coin (pictured) is the correct one.
