£5 note 'worth £50,000' found in Christmas card

A £5 note engraved with a tiny portrait of Jane Austen and said to be worth up to £50,000 has been found in a Christmas card.

The first was found in change from a café in south Wales earlier this month. Two more special £5 notes, spent in England and Northern Ireland, remain in general circulation.

What they 'mean' is TOY money. Micky Mouse being a worldwide toy.
