2p.
In fact the copper content makes it worth nearer 3p, but fairly certain you're not allowed to melt them down to realise this huge fortune.

It's 1983 the rare "NEW PENCE" date.

Anyway,

According to The Royal Mint website, 1,454,856,250 were struck as they were required to replace the old pre-decimal 3d and 6d coins - indeed, none were issued again for circulation until 1975! 1971 2p coins are still extremely common in circulation in the UK. I live near the seaside and see hundreds of them in the 'pusher' machines in the amusement arcades. In fact I think 1971 is still the most common of all the 2p coins.

Sorry, but I agree with the others. This is not worth much at all.

However, you now have an example of one of the two oldest UK coins still in circulation. The other is the 1971 1p, so it has ( minor ) historical value.

Common coin, poor condition (F - VF) nothing special - 2p.
Even a proof set coin is only worth maybe 10 - 20p.

What people need to consider is that if this really was some extremely rare coin, how likely is it that it would have just so happened to have slipped through the fingers of everyone who had owned it for the past 48 years without somebody noticing it? It's not impossible that it could have, but it's very unlikely to the point that it ought to make one think twice.
