Is this a real puzzle?

is this a real puzzle?

A $58,000 prize was offered for this puzzle that recently appeared on a late-night phone quiz show.

Add the pence, listed: Two pounds, 25p, £1.47, 16p, Fifty pence

The problem, however, is that no one seems to be able to solve it.

And since the company is refusing to explain the answer (which is 506), many are claiming the puzzle is bogus.

Any thoughts?
