You want to change the title you have put "competitive" not commemorative.

I'm not sure, i played one of these at monopoly, it was absolute coinage.
Go for it if you want the London Mint sending you junk mail from here to eternity. These guys are worse than Vistaprint. Avoid.
Aren't these people dodgy?

This review seems to back up this company's business practices.

"I recently sent off for the 'free' Britannia Penny for my 11 year old son. When it arrived it came with another coin, a Thrupenny bit, and I was advised that this would cost £29.95 if I wanted to keep it. Obviously I didnt want it and tried calling the London Mint to find out where I had to return it to. After hanging on the phone for 30 mins, I decided to send an email. The reply I got stated that I had to take it to the post office and get a receipt for the returned item. Not living too near to a post off and being at work every day made this difficult so I decided to send the cheque for the £2.50 postage in with the same envelope as the coin. Surely then if the cheque was cashed then that would mean that the envelope had been received?? I have today received a request from the London Mint Office for £29.95. I phoned them up, spoke to a lady called Jennifer, was told by her that the parcel had not been received by them. I got very irate when you kept saying the same thing over and over again when I tried to explain that the cheque that was cashed was in the same envelope as the coin!! Jennifer said that because I was getting a little worked up, she could end the call whenever she felt it was necessary and for me to 'lose the attitude'. Anyway, after speaking to the Team Leader I am now in the situation where I have to email her the order confirmation so she can prove to me that it stated that the other coin would be sent with the Penny. Please could anyone help me with this and advise a way round it??"
fallen for this tosh before. get sent rubbish and then continually sent junk mail to buy more guff. don't bother honestly.
You have to make sure you dont accept any more coins when you recieve this and you will never get off their junk mail list!

Not worth the hassle. I had been sent loads of coins after a different so called free coin. But what if they send you one that they expect you to pay more than £50 for do you have to pay insurance sending through the post?
Went for it, not having read these posts. Oops. Selected pay after delivery expecting paypal to come up. But it didn't. Anyone know what happens next? I certainly don't want to be inundated with junk mail or more coins.
never buy from London Mint as sent me a random coin & said i owe them £49 even though it was a 'free coin' in beginning, but sent it back afterwards & kept proof of my returns. ... dont waste your time people
