Seller Piotr Sobczuk from Telford, Shropshire, found the £5 note in his pocket and decided to try his luck and put it on the auction website.
Despite originally listing it for £1, the fiver attracted over 100 bids on the money and eventually sold for £60,100!
It had the serial number AA01 4444, which means it was one of the first to be printed and therefore valuable for a collector.
He listed the note on eBay this weekend and it sold on Sunday morning. The auction site - who take a percentage of the profits on every sale - will also take more than £250 in fees.
