AN ULTRA-rare 50p coin is selling for a fortune as collectors scramble to snap one up.
The Jemima Puddle-Duck coin was released last year by the Royal Mint as part of the collection to mark the 150th anniversary of the author’s birth.
The special edition coins featured the characters Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin and Mrs Tiggy-Winkle.
But now mintage figures from the Royal Mint reveal that only 2.1 million Jemima Puddle-Duck coins were released into circulation.
Because of this they are selling for a fortune on eBay with one seller flogging it for a massive £250.
