£5 coin sold at Face value. So get a £5 coin for £5. Good deal considering the significance of the occasion.

Worth noting that it isn't legal tender. Not that you plan to use it to buy your groceries.
Is £5 for £5 a good deal? I'm not so sure. Anybody want to buy a fiver? I'll do it for £5 + P&P.
It is not a £5 coin at all, it is only a round piece of embossed metal. Unless the coin is from the Royal Mint it is worthless. Buy one and try taking it to your bank

BTW, I have a bag of washers if anyone is interested.

I've got a jar full of coins with the queen's mug on them, not to mention notes and some stamps, already...
Not bad if your into collecting coins I guess
I gather the coin has been approved by Brenda, though....
It is legal tender in Jersey. Although worth £5.00 it is unlikely to ever hit circulation because its a keeper.

Essentially you are giving the Bailiwick of Jersey £5 which it will probably never repay

it is legal tender... except shops will be wary accepting it.

if you want to cash it in, just go to the post office or any bank, they'll take it, in exchange for the 'normal' coinage.

Nope you wont be able to do that. No bank or post office will take it. This isn't a royal mint coin, its just decorative.You may get a few quid from it on eBay in the next few years.

I very much doubt UK banks will take Jersey coinage.

You are totally, absolutely and completely wrong about this, and by the way, you are mistaken

Thank you all for the comments. The coin is legal tender in Jersey. In the rest of UK, banks accept to exchange for the British/Scottish/Irish notes. I've tried it on other Jersey issued £5 coins. I used to buy £5 coins from Post Office but recently they are not selling £5 coins. I've not tried post office for exchanging Jersey issued coins though.
