It's not true!!

The 2p piece with the NEW PENCE legend on the reverse isn't worth £400 no matter what the man on the "telly" said. It's true that if you get a 2p with that legend AND a date of 1983 or later then it's worth something far more than 2p but any date prior to that and I'm afraid that 2p is all you'll get.

All coins had NEW PENCE on them right up until 1981, after that the legend was changed to TWO PENCE/ FIVE PENCE/TEN PENCE or whatever; in 1983 however a few "escaped" with the wrong reverse on - they are the ones sought after now!
