Not official coin. Be wary of these coins from Guernsey.

Has Queen Elizabeth on the reverse and was issued in Guernsey , so unsure you could as may not be official ? .If so \ Why you would want to though I don't know - as it is a lovely coin.
*** Also worth noting, by agreeing to buy this you will be sent further coins charged at £25 each + P&P this should clearly be added **

No. They are not legal tender in the truest sense of the term on mainland UK because Westminster Collection are not the Royal Mint.

Legal tender?
But that isn’t actually the case. Commemorative coins have a value, just not one you can use in the shops or banks.

These special coins are legal tender, but people mistakenly think that means they can use them like any other coin.

Jenny Manders of the Royal Mint explained that there can sometimes be a misunderstanding about the definition of 'legal tender'. It does not actually mean that the coins can be accepted by banks, shops and businesses for cash transactions.

She added: “As set out by law, all UK coins made by The Royal Mint are classed as legal tender, whether commemorative or circulating. Legal tender allows UK coins to be accepted for payment of debts in court, but only circulating legal tender coins are designed to be spent and traded at businesses and banks.”

Nope, I just bought three and there was no mention of a subscription
I don't understand their statement

This brand new coin really is the ideal way to pay tribute to the brave men and women who helped to end WWII.

In what way can me spending £5 on a coin be paying tribute to those individuals? There is no donation to charity by the company. Have a read on the reviews for this company. It doesn't make me want to pay them any money.
These are basically paper weights unless you want them for novelty, legal tender means nothing for commemorative coins

Thanks for the warning. I will check thoroughly when they arrive. I bought a couple of £20 coins in 2013 they still seem to be worth that

won't be delivered before 12th March

£5 for £5 equates to £5 for a little silver token.

Agreed. A commemorative coin seems tacky enough in the first place but this is just crass nonsense.

Surely the ideal way of paying tribute would be to begin thinking of other people as human beings and to stop supporting war mongering systems which like to desensitise and control us through the joy of shiny collectables.

I like shiny collectables, I'm sending one to my young nephew in NZ and my two young boys will get the other 2.
