Would make a beautiful gift and technically you are paying for the same amount of money. If times get tough, you can use the £20!

From the site:
"In the summer of 1914, as conflict on the continent loomed, troops on both sides were mobilised and the soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force departed these shores for France. A century later we remember those who gave so much in those first months of war, striking only the second ever UK £20 coin to honour the anniversary.

Exclusively available in the United Kingdom and direct from The Royal Mint, where it was struck, this is the £20 coin for everyone, not just collectors – made of fine silver, it carries a poignant new design and, most importantly, is priced at just £20. It is an official legal tender United Kingdom coin. You will want to keep it somewhere safe or put it on display. Like all British coins it carries the coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen on its obverse. And on the reverse is Britannia, a potent national symbol for centuries. Here she is depicted by sculptor John Bergdahl full of quiet belief, placing her trust in the first British troops to set sail across the Channel."

Nothing to loose. Good for people who collect but dont suppose they will ever go up in value.

I think they are limited edition because it says 'over 50% sold' so they may go up in value. Who knows!

Unfortunately they have a nasty habit of increasing the amount of limited edition if it proves to be popular so its never really that limited.

PLEASE NOTE these coins are only legal tender for, I think 6 months. And there after you have to take them to a bank for a face value refund.

If your a collector its about the coin, heat for the deal

Where does it state that?

It doesn't. Wish you could order shed loads of these and not just 5. Would do wonders for my air miles

amazing money spinner for the treasurey these - hardly anything to make and £20 in the coffers - either you keep and stare in awe, sell on to a private collector (treasurey doesn't lose out) - you take to the bank for face value refund (worth less than you paid and the treasurey keeps the original value of the coing and pays out less) - sweet deal for the governement (or brussels when Cameron pays the eventual extra £bns to them).

...if the money actually went to something to do with rememberance and supporting ex-forces or victims of conflict - maybe see it as a charity donation, but i'll bet it will actually fund more war and who knows, future rememberance products - ironic eh!

It's money, it doesn't go anywhere.... You are exchanging £20 for £20.

How is this a deal - mugs thinking they will go up in value (more than inflation)
I don't often vote cold but give me a valid reason not to.

The mint has its version of hot deals, we have ours. At least this is voluntary and not a tax. If you don't want it then you don't have to have it and unless you're some sort of investment guru you're not losing out. It doesn't interest me but good on the op for bringing something to the attention of people that like this sort of thing.

Makes a change, when the first £20 coin came out they weren't legal tender. just fancy coins, still bought one and they go for 25% more than I bought it for so a few more years it will be my most profitable £20. More interest than any bank.

So you're paying the treasury to keep £20 in their bank account and to get interest on it and not yours?

Rightio then.

If you put last years £20 coin on ebay now you could expect to get £30. So within a year you would make at least 10%, i think that is slightly above inflation.

Is that factoring in the (14%?) fees?

Eeeeerrr, Maths?

£20 coin selling for £30 is a 50% increase, minus fees and postage of course

While you think you're being smart, in this case you are swapping £20 for a £20 coin which can be swapped back to £20 in cash at any time.

No, not being smart, just educated! £20 today is worth less than £20 tomorrow - FFS, look up 'present discounted value' - here, i'll even help you: go to google and type in 'Present Discounted Value'

I'm well aware you weren't being smart...

I'm also well aware of what inflation is. If you're the type of person who keeps every penny in an interest generating account then you'll lose out. If you're one of the vast majority who doesn't, then you won't.

Legally, swapping £20 for this coin is no different to swapping £20 for 2 £10 notes. All 3 items are legal tender. The only difference is that you'll struggle to spend a £20 coin in a shop.

OK

"Hey let's make some metal discs and stamp £20 on them, then we'll flog em for £20 of the common mans hard earned cash that he's already paid tax on!"

You've either not read this thread, or you've just fallen out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down. It's a £20 coin, same value as a £20 note or 20 pound coins. No one is trying to screw anyone.

The deal is that some people like to collect these things, and they can do in this instance without paying postage.

I'm talking about the constant formation of new money, inflation and debt.

Do keep up.

If you had any sense, you could be dangerous, however, as that's not the case - this is not new money in the system, it's a new coin.

It's great to start the day with a smile. Thank you all for the pointless but highly amusing arguments.

If I took a penny black into the bank, would I get the same penny as if I took a penny red?

This is a silver Britannia, if you think silver will increase then you will buy these, the change in design may make the coin worth when you come to sell it.

I'll try and get a post in before a riot breaks out between all the people posting before me! I'm not really interested in how the coin might be worth 1p less tomorrow. But I am interested in getting one for my dad for Christmas and not having to pay postage as I think it'll make a nice present. Thanks OP

its easy to see why so many wars break out

Maximum coinage mintage 250,000 it says. I guess that makes it limited.

Banned

So basically you can still use the coin in any shop across the uk if bought?

Heat for the deal OP

How did you find the code?

As a numismatist have some heat.
