£5 poppy coin for £5 pound with FREE postage and 50p donation to charity

Found 14th Oct 2015
ok guys, mixed reviews on my post for the 2014 coin but eventually it went hot hot hot. so you spend £5 pound and get a lovely £5 coin delivered to your door for free. in the process you are also donating 50p to the royal British legion charity. not a bad deal if you ask me.

also for those who want to make profit etc....search eBay for the "2014 100 poppy coin" a good investment if you ask me. I'm a coin collector so I have no interest in selling my coins and with this being face value with a donation I actually bought 3!

Warning: These coins are not able to be used in the UK. These are not issued by the Royal Mint. They are issued in Jersey (Channel Islands) and as such are not legal tender here. See here for further information: royalmintmuseum.org.uk/FAQ…900

NOT legal tender - can only be used in Jersey!

£5 for £5 is not a deal....
No brainier - ordered.

Do you know how I can order more than 3?

Someone has literally just listed 5 coins on eBay in the attempt to make a measly £8.50 per coin. Not even donating to charity.

Lets see if anyone else agrees....
Is it legal tender?
would the regular tesco cashier even know what is this if I decided to spend it?
This will look lovely sat right at the back of my kitchen's miscellaneous drawer...
Country of Issue: Jersey
not legal tender in the UK.

In theory you should be able to get your bank to give you the £5 for it.

In practice its a bit of a pain, and if thinking of offloading it straight away probably not worth the bother unless you're able to offload on fleaBay.

Absolutely correct
These have no value.

A bank will not accept these commemorative coins.

No it isn't (see above link) - unless you plan to go to Jersey.

You do realise over time coins increase in value to collectors and are an investment. Supporting a worthwhile charity some people have no clue.

I prefer the solid silver coins, when ive got the spare change , they cost more but i should hopefully get more than i paid for them if i ever sell them on
It's not a uk £5 coin .. Not our legal tender..... Westminster Collection ...... Not the Royal mint....... It's not a coin as far as the uk is concerned, it is a decorative trinket.

£5 for £5 + 50p donation + delivery from a private business! It's fairly obvious .... The old only 3 per applicant gag.... ooooh it must be a good deal then....
Westminster collection, not royal mint, no thanks.

Enjoy the spam mail.

Yeah right, coins really rise in value....I am sure the Royal Jubilee coin my parents got me as a nipper back in 1977 is worth a load of money now, let's look on eBay.

Oh yeah, like mine, no box, starting bid £0.99 and no bidders with 1 day remaining, item 171959898884
Pretty coin but not legal tender, so I'll pass
50p out of the £5 seems a bit measly to me and not being legal tender smacks of the charity band wagon, better off just giving the fiver straight to the poppy fund.

Wait a few months and there will be a lot of people trying to offload these........Royal Mint - Jersey coins

A nice gift! Thanks OP Bought and heat added

LOL you are delusional

' ...head of Coincraft, which was the UK’s biggest dealer in the secondary market for Royal Mint coins. But, after 38 years as a Royal Mint agent, he now refuses to trade in its coins because he believes the market is devalued by the number of issues. The Royal Mint website states that the £5 coins are intended to be souvenirs rather than ordinary circulation coins.
So the Westminster Collection supposedly donate 50p to charity and bank £4.50 after production costs of probably £1. The charity donation appears more like a sales gimmick to me! OK if you want the coin I suppose, I'll stick with the poppy purchase each year!
Much better would be to just donate £5 directly to charity.
£4.50 to a scam company who masquerades as the mint, for a worthless lump of metal and endless junk mail and wrestling out of future "purchases"
Just give your £5 to a poppy seller - the charity get all of it!
What a beautiful coin. Thank you for posting this OP I'd not have known about it otherwise.
yeh its not actual money and so its not a £5 coin!

instead just donate whatever you can afford yourself.
If anyone has a 2014 one they wont to sell me for a fair price I would love it. I didn't buy at the time... but my baby girl ended up being born on remembrance Sunday 2014 and of course carries the name Poppy...
So not legal tender as it is not produced by the Royal Mint, it probably costs 10p to make in some sweat shop and from the £5 you pay 50p of that (10%) goes to charity. Are people voting hot because of the charitable donation??? This is damn stupid not to mention manipulative.

'Probably costs 10p to make in some sweat shop'. So factual and informative

The irony of your comments has not escaped me... (_;)
Recall a similar deal for £100 big ben coins on here which were legal tender.

Paid on a cashback card for 5, got paid out on quidco and sold on for £130 each

Great return lol
