eBay seller ‘hotdeals4sell’ has listed the £2 coin, which features the Queen on one side and Trinity House on the other.
Listed on an auction basis with a starting bid of £250, the coin was only put on the site today.
Writing about the listing, the seller wrote: “Rare & Exclusive Trinity House £2 Pound Coin 1514 – 2014. Circulated but Great condition.
“Minting Errors writing around the edge is upside down to Queens Head. Dots around the Queens Head are not aligned and some dots missing. A great coin for your collection.”
The Trinity House £2 coin was released in 2014, and Royal Mint explained the history behind the design on their website.
They wrote: “Trinity House was formed by Royal Charter under Henry VIII in 1514. The organisation was tasked with improving the safety of Britain’s waterways and for 500 years Trinity House has tirelessly served the mariner.
“To honour the 500th Anniversary of this respected organisation, a £2 coin entered circulation.
“The reverse features a design by Joe Whitlock Blundell, Production Director of The Folio Society, created with the help of David Eccles, a retired illustrator and printer.
“It captures the spirit of Trinity House with an enduring symbol of the seas – the lighthouse.”
How rare is this coin? According to Change Checker, it has a rating of 8 on the Scarcity Index, making it common.
3,705,000 coins with the Trinity House design were minted and put into circulation.
The Trinity House coin is not the only £2 to be selling on eBay in recent weeks.
One coin that was listed early in October was a William Shakespeare £2 coin.
The coin was listed by eBay user “alhedai-0”, who boasts 100 per cent positive feedback.
Hoping to sell the coin, the seller listed the item as a: “ULTRA RARE! William Shakespeare HISTORIES £2 Two Pound Coin.”
Reiterating the title, the listing’s description read: “Rare “William Shakespeare 2016” £2 coin.”
The coin was listed for a 10-day auction, with the starting bid being a staggering £1,000 – 500 times the coin’s face value.
However, the seller is open to selling the coin for less, with the option available to “make an offer”.
The coin was minted in 2016 to commemorate the life of William Shakespeare.
