Undated 20 pence's...........?

I've been looking on ebay and have noticed some 'sellers' claiming they have an undated 20 pence coin for sale, when in actual facts they are selling 2008 editions that have the date on the flipped side. I nearly fell for it, that's when I noticed that no one was actually purchasing them at only 0.99p that there were dozens buying ones for £275. Anyone notice this?

I was also wondering, where would be the best place to get hold of one? I suppose the Post Office is the best place to start, I remember, not long ago that's were the first 5 Pound Coins began to appear? OR IS IT JUST SHEAR LUCK?
No, your wrong. the Royal Mint doesn't want them back at all. So many people are sending them back to this site... http://www.undated20p.com/ when in actuall facts this is a separate private firm that specialises in coin collecting. They're conning people to sell them unique 20 Pence Coins for only £50 when they're worth a hefty lot more and they know it!

There are several firms offering around £50 for them, but definitely NOT the Royal Mint.
There was a chap from the Royal Mint on TV a couple of nights ago who pointed out that, despite their not having a date, the coins remain Legal Tender, so, if you had one (or a few) you would be legally entitled to spend them at their face value (though I don't suppose you would want to).
It would be plain luck if you happened to get one.
I do know that one turned up in the change at a local pub a few days ago.
Good luck, and check your change!!

edit: the following is a direct quote from the Royal Mint website:

"Information about the undated 20p coin
In November 2008 a number of 20p coins were incorrectly minted resulting in their having no date.
This problem affected less than 250,000 coins of the 136 million 20p pieces minted in 2008-09 and was due to the previous obverse (the 'Heads' side) being used with the new reverse (the 'Tails' side) design, meaning the year of issue did not feature at all.

These coins remain legal tender and still have a face value of 20p.

Check the images below to see the difference between the correct 20p coin and the undated 20p coin."

If you take one, or a bucket load, to the Royal Mint, they will give you face value for them - i.e 20p for each coin. You will only get more by selling them to a trader or otherwise privately to a collector. It is a complete myth that the Royal Mint are paying more than face value for them.
