New Isaac Newton 50p coin is selling for a £3,500 on eBay

A 50p coin to celebrate the birth of British scientist Isaac Newton went into circulation officially in September. 

Only 375 of the coins were released initially at the place of Isaac Newton’s birth, Woolsthorpe Manor in Lincolnshire.

Since, the coins have been released into circulation in the UK slowly and Britons are starting to find the piece in their change.

Now one such person has listed the coin on eBay for £3,500.

He was also a member of the Royal Mint.
