How are so many for sale on ebay if just gone on sale?

Voted hot by the way, made a stack selling the last coin.


Pre order from Royal mint using subscription service, I've had mine in hand for a few days now.

I wouldve bought one if it was Jermey Kyle.

That Jermey Kyle is a bit dirty...

I forgot to subscribe to reserve when i brought my peter rabbit have i missed out now :( or can i queue and hope for the best when the time comes
I suspect there will be more people who forgot to subscribe or simply didn't want to.
Hence I believe some number of coins which were not reserved will be listed on website for sale as usually.
Check when exactly coins are expected to show and check both shops early in the morning.
Since then ive had an email asking me to subscribe Phew !! x

Just received a confirmation of both my subscriptions for the future Beatrix potter coins. What a relief :)
Same here , much easier than racing again to get next coins !
Am I right in thinking there have already been some coins released in this series?
This years 2017 series just started, Peter Rabbit was the first coin.
However there was another separate series last year.
Following coins - Jeremy fisher will be out in June, Tom kitten in August and Benjamin Bunny in September.
Ok, hence my confusion. The wife preferred the set last year with Tiggywinkle etc. Is there any merit in combining some from last year with this year do you think?
Have you already reserved a full set for this year??? They're already all reserved/sold out.
You sure that is all of them? Will more not be released later in year?
The other 3 which will be released later this year are fully reserved as well. Only way of getting any of them will be via ebay or other ways to purchase from those who reserved already.
I wouldn't worry about the others if you have Peter Rabbit. you can pick up the other 3 for around £80max each from Ebay. The rabbit however is £3-4-500!

I got 2 full sets reserved so I'm good

The market price will be what it is but they add a premium to it, usually 3% for the sellers I've used. The discount being offered here is on this premium....so I think they'll be charging a premium of 2% rather than the usual 3%. Still not bad if you are buying gold anyway.
Solved! Well spotted. ;)

If it works, this has to be the best deal ever posted - anywhere!

I'm guessing it's going to be impossible for technical reasons to make a purchase - nobody sells gold at a substantial loss.

legal tender, no where has to except it including banks, however if you ever have to pay a debt through court you can use it for that, thing to check on these is the quality and quantity of silver as this is where the investment lies similar to buying sovereigns...
japes
Legal tender is just that ... a legal form of payment. Banks HAVE to accept it
Well if you say so it must be true, after all it's on the internet and it never lies :p
japes
Legal tender is just that ... a legal form of payment. Banks HAVE to accept it

In practice this means that although the silver UK coins we produce in denominations of £5, £20, £50 and £100 are approved as legal tender, they have been designed as limited edition collectables or gifts and will not be entering general circulation. As such, UK shops and banks are unlikely to accept them.

From the Royal Mint website.....
Legal tender is just that ... a legal form of payment. Banks HAVE to accept it
people can collect rocks and any other items, in my opinion collectors want items that will hold in value or increase or they will enjoy having on display.
in x years time this will not be worth face value.
if you will gain enjoyment looking at this art piece for £20 then buy.
I have some video games I have as a collector. I personally value them at x, none gamers would value them at x/100, I can at least play these games, collectors items are art and all art is subjective.
apropos would you like to buy some beanie baby's? they are collectors items.

That's just pure racist!
Then you don't understand what the term "racist" means
Well predujice then!! still wrong to say that!!!!!!!!! Assuming 1985in your title means your 31 so you should know better
No it should be 1969 but I'm a dyslexic r-e-t-a-r-d so I don't know any better :( and yes the correct term is prejudice not racist
Again another slur, dyslexic people are not r-e-t-a-r-ds. Humour me, did you vote in or out or did you eat the ballot slip and use the pen to clean your ears.

Don't mind inviting her to my 90th if she'll pay a fiver, but I'm not sure if either of us will be alive in 20 odd years :D
They say too many birthdays are bad for your health.
nivagni
how do you get it free... nothing on website
I was thinking where does it say it is free until I saw comment #4 by Paul.Jacobs...

not bad for those 90 individuals better than getting a card on 100th.

A little fun... or is it suppose to be

I wonder whether The Queen will think of giving all 100yrs old something when she turns 100, a nice gift for supporting her for 100yrs.

Like me, there won't be too many, you must be saying I guess,

just read the reports in Express printed in Oct 2015

In 2014 there were 14,450 centenarians living in the UK


That's right a staggering 14.5k are now 100

But how many will turn 100 if we go by these stats

And more people are set reach their centenary in the next few years with 550,810 Britons already aged 90 and over, almost three times the 187,250 in 1984
:|


Forget it

The Queen will have to fork out a lot more than I thought.... if all 500; survive to be 100. 8)
A grand total of just 90 of the coins being given away!

Blimey the Peter Rabbit coin is now selling for £500+ on eBay. Prices have rocketed in the last week. These 3 coins are now unavailable so are definitely worth the investment!
Do they take the money straight away or when they dispatch them?

£55!! get one here for £17 if you really need one


That's not the silver one though.
I think the cold voters really don't understand what these are valued at on the resale market. I don't collect them, but work mates collect these Royal Mint coins and they always make a very tidy profit and end up with ones in there collection effectively free for the profit they make. Scorching hot from me.

COOLING ADDED AND THIS IS WHY... If you think if the Royal Mint is selling a £50 face-value coin for £50 with free postage is too good to be true, that's because it is! No retailer or bank (including Bank of England) in the UK will accept the silver commemorative £20, £50 or £100 coins. They are only worth about 20% of their face value due to the silver content. The word is now spreading about the "misleading" information given out by the Royal Mint and eBay proces are now dropping fast. I suggest that you sell as soon as possible to cut your losses or hope (a very big hope!) that the price of silver rises enough to reach the face value of the coins. If you are desperate enough to recoup the face value of these coins, the only way is by being forced to settle a debt via the courts which will play havoc with your credit rating. Even restaurants now refuse to take these as part of settling a "debt" for the meal you've just had. In reality, THESE COINS ARE FOR COLLECTORS ONLY, NOT AN INVESTMENT AND ACTUALLY WORTH ONLY 20% OF THEIR FACE VALUE !!!

The flaw in your plan: "This coin has been designed to be a limited edition collectable or gift and will not be entering general circulation. As such, UK shops and banks will not accept it."

Very true, they are only worth their value in silver content (about £10) or face value if you're drawn through the courts to settle a debt which mean kissing goodbye to any credit rating. DON'T BY THEM unless you're a collector not needing to make a profit.

Think this one would've been better entered onto the 'Viz Top Tips' page.
I think the clue was in "use a rewards credit card" but it seems a lot of work just to rack up the potential reward (may be just 0.5% with some cards) especially when compared to the fact this may be seen as a "cash" transaction and not attract any reward!

My commonwealth 1986 £2 coin is now worth, wait for it.. a whopping £4 now. Has never been touched. These certainly won't be an investment, although I had a google on coins sold and it was interesting to see some 50p coins that were in full circulation go for £33. Now that's an investment!
Lloyds would not take £5 coins they suggested to a coin collector.
I posted the big ben one last year..you usually find the first people that sell on ebay make the most money from the overseas buyers..so glad they brought another one out as the value of tge big ben will go higher being a first edition..think I'll give this one a miss though as the design not too good..still heat though
Sell for £110 to £140 on ebay? by the time they take fees out, postage, etc then they would loose or break even, so don't see the point? Also there are 50,000 made. Thats still a huge number. They would have to be between £25 and £40 for me to bite, so I'm out.
Don't know why people vote it down. This is a deal that the most you can lose is the rate of inflation. You can always deposit it in your bank for £100 credit. Or the sensible thing to do is buy it and hide it in the back of a drawer until you retire! ;) Not one for the quick gain - but for the long game, certainly worth getting one.

There were no **** coins made when my little girl was born and she's just as important as those self centered morons.
So £16 for a silver £5 coin might not be the best deal.
So where's the deal? Why post it if you know it's not a deal?

What's wrong? I voted hot, but one more cold. Anyway I like it.
This has been previously listed but is still available. However I can't understand this being voted Cold. Pay for it (or better, them!) with a Cashback credit card then when it (they) arrive, take them to the bank and pay them into your current account. So, its cash in your current account until your credit card company take their money, plus you also get the Cashback.

I guess those voting Cold are just trying to boost their HUKD Voting record!

Anyone considering this silliness should probably read this http://www.chards.co.uk/news/twenty-pounds-worth-twenty-pounds/
tldr: Just because they say it's "£20 legal tender" doesn't really make it so in any real way.
Silver coins are a totally fun little collectible, and can be a okayish investment, certainly better than than most "made to be collected" collectibles, but this particular example is probably not the best place to start.
It is legal tender but its not in circulation so it wont be accepted in shops etc, but it will always retain a value of £20 (face value). In any legal matter where money is owed (at court etc), this £20 would be accepted at a value of £20.
Yes it wont make you rich as it is only a £20 coin, but its a little fun and something for people to keep aside as part of a small collection. This is not intended as a serious investment which will turn you into a millionaire.
I get where you're coming from, the problem is that this isn't a particularly attractive or interesting silver coin (as they go) - for your £20 or thereabouts you could pick up a nice chunky silver Britannia, an American Liberty, a Canadian Maple, or the beautiful different-every-year Chinese Pandas or Australian Wildlife series - all of which contain double the amount of silver as this, and all of which will certainly be more collected (look at the values of Pandas especially from just a few years ago on eBay).


The £20 George and the Dragon 2013 coin, now is £30-33 in ebay, so the longer you keep this the value will be more.
The Canadian Silver Maples are not 250k mintage, but lot more, also it's not Brilliant Circulated for £23, but from tube.
In your case you buying metal, in this case people buying collectables.
lol
steveberden
The cost of this coin is twice that of the value of the silver in it. You'd be better off buying £20 worth of silver and hanging on to that instead of the coin which will still only be worth £20.
Yes, it's much more fun having a tiny lump of silver than a nice collectable coin. I'll go and see my friendly local precious metal dealer tomorrow for a £20 nugget.

I get where you're coming from, the problem is that this isn't a particularly attractive or interesting silver coin (as they go) - for your £20 or thereabouts you could pick up a nice chunky silver Britannia, an American Liberty, a Canadian Maple, or the beautiful different-every-year Chinese Pandas or Australian Wildlife series - all of which contain double the amount of silver as this, and all of which will certainly be more collected (look at the values of Pandas especially from just a few years ago on eBay).

theres a churchill coin from the 60s worth a fraction of its face value now. these arent an investment.

...and as the Royal Mail remind you...
I think the Royal Mail should concentrate on letters, & leave coinage to the Royal Mint:p
Just to cover the topic that will undoubtedly come up - ie that "you can't lose as it's legal tender and worth £20" - it's only worth £20 if someone will accept it for £20 of value... and as the Royal Mint remind you...
"Legal Tender Guidelines
"Legal tender has a very narrow and technical meaning in the settlement of debts. It means that a debtor cannot successfully be sued for non-payment if he pays into court in legal tender. It does not mean that any ordinary transaction has to take place in legal tender..."
http://www.royalmint.com/aboutus/policies-and-guidelines/legal-tender-guidelines

ie people are buying, as is their 100% right, for nostalgia, collectability, or speculation, but not investment!

A recent reminder from The Daily Telegraph...

They were starting to hit the £170 mark on eBay, now as you say they’ve dropped to around £160.

The next batch will be sent out mid February so eBay will be flooded again so I’d not imagine the price will hit £170 again for a while.

wow another just sold for £173 soon will be double
Unlikely - but to be fair, they are still fetching around the £150-160 mark on eBay. Not so much of a profit, though, after eBay/PayPal have taken around £25 of that.

Just got the invite as well through the post, wanted to submit :) - great deal. Effectively £1k in credit (with perks obviously) buys you the same in legal tender, plus all credit card cashback/points etc, affiliate cashback and further £100 in free £5 coins (nominal value). No savings account can touch that.
Do not forget to go through a affiliate website of your choice and use code E1556B (two free £5 coins, effectively £26 savings at Royal Mint's prices). .

That was an excellent tip - thanks very much for it! Two free coins worth £26 changed the economics of the deal completely. :)

My Quidco cashback was declined. :(
yeah mine did too although my £20 coins all received cashback..I think we let the cat out the bag when ordering them as no one wanted to order on the phone only online for the cash back so they declined it

This still works :) used it on the big Ben coin so hot !
no probs. atleast someone appreciates. did I put it in wrong place for it to go cold? I bought a gold coin for 50 quid, free postal plus extra coin. gold ones sell on eBay for 70 already. I think its a good deal if you're after something valuable for a gift.
I have spent loads, getting these coins for family n friends over the years good xmas gift and also you can purchase some items monthly which is what I do super gift will be loved by children to adults, wd thx adamsa29

Ring the mint like I did. These cannot be spent, banks wont change them BUT FOR 6 MONTHS ONLY you can
get a refund (just losing return postage) They are worth £6 in silver will be a long time to get £20 back.
A really bad investment, but a lovely possession if you like shiny things lol. Ask yourself the time honoured
question " Is this too good to be true? " or " where is their profit here? " Then ring them and ask the question about
the definition of "legal tender" I agree, it seems unlikely that they would mislead the public--- just--ask them!

Beware the definition of "legal tender" it is very misleading.

You can't spend these and contrary to what people say you can't
take them to a bank for £20 refund

Basically you are buying £6 worth of silver bullion for £20
and for 6 months you are able to return to Mint for full refund
as I did with mine when I found out.
Good fun---------------------TERRIBLE INVESTMENT ask yourself why you are buying.

because its a £20 coin that cost me £20. and that i can buy things with it for £20 and i just got 67p back with quidco. but i like it because of what it represents
next time you take £20 out the cash machine and they give you a bank note. take it back and ask why they give you a piece of paper worth 50p demand something worth £20
