A CITY eBay user has made a few quid after selling one of the "most sought after" 50p coins for a huge sum. 

They are among many people on the selling site trying to sell a 50p, which features a Kew Gardens design, for more than its face value.

The Kew Gardens coin was released in 2009 and, according to The Royal Mint, is one of the most sought-after 50p coins.

A seller from Worcester sold the coin for £150 - way more than its face value price.

Not only that, but the buyer will also have to fork out an extra £2.95 for postage.

The condition of the coin was described as “circulated so not mint but in a fair condition”.

The Royal Mint described the coin as: "The rare 50p collectors go crazy for.

"The sheer variety has sparked a collecting craze, but of all the 50p coins, the Kew Gardens 50p is arguably the most sought-after.

"Nothing gets people excited quite like this original 2009 design.

"Just 210,000 were released into circulation, and with almost all of them in private hands, the chances of coming across one in your change are slim."

Other Kew Gardens coins on the site were going for as high as £600, but the majority was at the £150 mark.

Last month, one city Ebay seller was also selling a new 50p coin with King Charles III's head featured on it for over £1,000

The new 50p bearing King Charles’s official coin portrait was released on Thursday, August 10.

Five million of the coins, celebrating Charles’ coronation earlier this year, were received by the Post Office and UK bank branches.
