Is this genuine ? I think it looks dodgy- go to site NOT through link and these are not available at £5
only way to make this worthwhile is to buy a ton with a Credit card then pay off the card with the same coins for the free points lol you think the bank will take a few grand worth

They are genuine but not legal tender In the UK, they are simply made for “collecting” or being spent in Guernsey.

I think it is or i'd have mentioned it in, otherwise. If that's any solace then I bought one.

Besides it's fiver for a fiver so no brauner for me but up to you if you want to buy, I hope that you do for it's a good coin 😁

And I do not get any tips or commissions of them

But it's not £5 for £5 as you can spend £5 on goods and services in the UK, whereas you can't with this 'medal' where even still you'll have trouble getting any shop to accept it in Guernsey.

It'll sit in a drawer gathering dust and you'll be constantly spammed by Westminster.

Which wouldn't be accepted as payment due not being legal tender in the UK

It is as you say, technically but I collect the coins and fiver for a fiver does still work for me so if you want to buy goods then may be this is not the right offer for you

But you'll find enough people like me of course to sell this to and get your fiver back lol That is if you change your mind to buy it for a craic and then use this one to buy your goods later on.

Besides, I have a ton of them biting dust in my drawer so I won't mind another 😁

I don't think they take them in bulk and for the same reason you've mentioned, but thought well 😁😁
Then you get inundated with emails for other coins you may like.

Because they are only legal tender in Guernsey and because they probably pay the Guernsey government a nice amount of real money to do it
The Spitfire along with the Hurricane and other weapons along with our Brave fighting forces and those of our Allies were used to fend off the Nazi's and are the very reason we can contemplate buying commemorative medals / coins such as this!
If the outcome had been different we could be spending German money.

What has this site become peddling tat like this

Can't wait for those tacky decorated plate deals, oh and don't forget the limited edition teddies. Surely this is all Sunday paper magazine fodder?

Scottish bank notes issued by Bank of Scotland, Royal Bank of Scotland, or Clydesdale are not legal tender either in the rest of the UK. Same I think applies for Northern Irish bank notes too.

Bizarrely enough Bank of England notes aren't legal tender in Scotland either
