Silver costs about £11 an ounce. From the size of this (60mm x 35mm)and that it's plated I'd estimate there's pennies of silver. They're charging £2.50 postage which will cost them less than a £1. Add tooling and staff costs to that but I'm sure they will still make money on the deal.

From the size of this (60mm x 35mm and roughly the thickness of a pound coin) I'd estimate it weighs 25-50g so there's about 30 to 55p of silver.

Erm, if you have a kilo of silver I will happily pay you £20 for it! A kilo of silver is currently about £360ish per kilo.

That said, the amount of silver on this will probably only be worth pennies you're right so they will likely make something or at least be using this as a loss leader in so far as they're gambling with pennies in the hope you buy more of their tat.

You habe your Kilo and troy ounce mixed up, But yeah its 'silver layered'. 2~3 grams, you are talking about a pound.

This is layered silver - a thin coating of silver plating a cheaper metal. So beware getting this just for the silver content, the value of silver it contains will be next to nothing.
silver plated not solid silver
Thank you.
THESE GUYS ARE A CON
People think that "The London Mint Office" is "The Royal Mint", which is far from it.
These guys are a rip off bunch selling cheap coins, etc at inflated prices and then send you stuff you don't want
and try and charge you.
BE WARNED

I stupidly bought a commemorative coin from The London Mint Office last year, they have been harassing me by phone ever since - never again
ordered a similar deal before and never got anything. Wouldn't touch them.
Any news on the delivery got a email last month but still haven't received it yet.??
