Any chance of a BOGOF voucher code on this?

this isn't a deal, should be moved to misc
Free postage. Great Deal:D

That's 12.99 for those too lazy to click the clicky. Yes it's a deal. [facepalm]

Do people like Westminster Collection get their £5 coins at wholesale price then? It's a bit weird really.

And here's a pub quiz question we had recently: "What's the current face value of a crown?" My dinosaur team mates insisted it was 25p (5 bob) but of course it's £5 these days.

£5 for £5. Bargain!
Seems like a good price to me for those that actually want it... free P&P and less than half the price of the mint website itself.

Could I buy 100 of these and go into pc world and buy a tv with them?
Is it legal tender even at these quanties?

Plenty of things (including stamps) are legal tender. It does not mean a retailer is obliged to accept them though.

Do these come in the presentation pack like the ones from the royal mail?

Exactly.

Shame people won't take any notice of your post
I don't like the design.

Stamps are not legal tender. A shop is able to accept them if they wish, but cannot be forced to accept them for payment of a debt.

If something is legal tender, then that form of payment must be accepted for payment of a debt.
Remember when ordering to make sure you ask for follow on coins not to be sent, if you don't they automatically send them out and you have the hassle of sending them back if you don't want them.
Waste of time.
Great for gambling as long asyou get to make the call.

I like it. Shows her majesty as she was in 1952 and now in 2012. Nice little item to give to the grand-children in years to come. And, heaven forbid, if I ever get desperate enough, I still have a five pound coin to fall back on.

This article basically recommends avoiding any £5 for £5 deals, but there appears to be a conflict of interests in that advice - it was written by a company that sells coins!
There is a machine at my local arcade that costs 50p and it give out 25x 2p pieces. Should I post that as a separate deal or will the details in this post suffice?
ordered thanks op...
Spend £5 and get £5 cashback!
STAMPS ARENT LEGAL TENDER!!!!

i hate that myth...

I once owned a shop and a woman tried to pay for some bleach with stamps... I refused and SHE PHONED THE POLICE...

want to hear the annoying thing??? The police actually came out to the shop to see what was going on.

three months later - attempted break-in (the good people of Tipton are really let doewn by a few dozen scumbags)... how many coppers do you think attempted to solve the crime?? how many showed up??

grrrrrr....

phew... glad I got that off my chest!
Great for my brothers Birthday gift, thanks OP
Hi I work for The Royal Mint and just want point out that this is not directly comparable to the £12.99 pack. We also sell the £5 coin for £5 (though we currently charge P&P as well) and it comes in more basic packaging etc:



Obviously, the quality of the coin is fantastic :-D

nope. this deal could make you some money in the future if you decide to sell. 2p pieces are not rare or hold as much value as this coin

LOL, they are legal tender, david brent said so in the office documentary
Not for everyone but I agree that it would make a nice gift, especially for a baby that is born this year.
If you are happy with getting junk mail regularly, get one. But if you do buy one, it will end up at the bottom of a drawer forever, speaking from experience

That's an idiotic comparison. You are actually getting more than the face value of the coin here.
Could you buy 1,000 of these on a reward point (Nectar, Air Miles) credit card, keep the reward points then take the coins back into the bank to cash them in to pay off your credit card bill?

It's only 1 per household so unless you have 1,000 addresses that you can use then it's not possible.
