A YouTube dad blogger claims he owns a "rare and collectible" Battle of Hastings 50p coin which sold for a jaw-dropping £63,000 on eBay.

Internet star Ladbaby - real name Mark Hoyle, 32, told fans on Instagram stories he saw an article about a 50p coin supposedly selling for 126,000 times its value online - and then rushed to check his collection.

Dadbaby flashed the coin to the camera as he told his fans how delighted he was to make the discovery and joked he would sell it for £60k.

The blogger, who lives with his family in Hemel Hempstead, said: "Now Rox always winds me up because when I get any 50ps, I keep them..."

He added: "I'll take 60 grand for it now, Just DM me."

But it may be unlikely that Mark will be able to sell the coin for £63k...

Experts were left baffled after the coin went under the hammer for the whopping price tag as there are 6.7million in circulation already - with many saying it's not even a "rare" edition.

The back of the Battle of Hastings 50p coin was created by designer John Bergdahl four years ago.

The coin was created to remember the day when King Harold II was defeated by William the Conqueror

It features the drawing of King Harold with an arrow through his eye, taken from the Bayeux Tapestry.

It was created to remember the day when King Harold II was defeated by William the Conqueror, leading to the conquest of England by the Normans.

But with more than 6million in circulation, they're not the rarest out there - the Kew Gardens coin still holds this title with just 210,000 in circulation.

It currently ranks second place on ChangeChecker's scarcity index scale, alongside Paddington Bear at the Station and Roger Bannister 50p coins.

However it's value has risen since two years ago when it was considered the 25th-rarest 50p currently in circulation.

Mark launched his YouTube channel in 2016 to document the pitfalls of fatherhood

Ladbaby found fame blogging about his journey from "lad to dad" after the birth of his two sons with wife Roxanne.

He is also an unlikely music star after bagging the UK Christmas number one single for the past two years.

Last year he beat chart-topping rapper Stormzy, Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi and pop princess Dua Lipa with his charity single I Love Sausage Rolls.
