Found 5th Jun 2014
This year marks the 70th Anniversary of the Normandy landings when Allied forces began their epic assault on 6th June 1944 - D-Day.

They came by air, by land and by sea and would eventually bring about the liberation of Europe and ultimately the end of the Second World War.

Today you can own the special commemorative coin that honours all those who served or made the ultimate sacrifice. It is available today for just its FACE VALUE - £5 for £5.

The D-Day 70th Anniversary £5 Coin is the perfect heirloom to hand down to your children and grandchildren as the perfect reminder of the courage beyond the call of duty.

for £10 !?

Ordered. Thanks

Nice coins but beware. You will be bombarded with other 'offers' that they send to you on recommendation. I had to go to the post office to send back £30 worth of their goods. Just make sure you call them to ensure this doesn't happen.

Not voted either way. Nice coins. Not so nice company IMO.

Ordered 5. Thanks! Have some heat.

Legal tender only in jersey?

So I take it that it's just me that finds this sort of merchandising and profit making distasteful?

Yep. Just you. It's a £5 coin. It costs £5 delivered. Legal tender (near the UK), if you wanted to spend it. Nice for collectors and fathers day. Not distasteful to me.

Nice ..... :-)

Nice. Ordered. Thank you

why buy it only to spend it?

Rather than buy these coins and leave them in the draw forever more, why not give the £5 to charity instead?

Hear, hear, Nujol. This fiver will simply sit in a drawer and commemorate nothing. Give it to a Service Charity instead and let it do some good to those who we can never repay sufficiently, whether they served in WW2 or since then.

Charity is a waste of money.

It looks nice if you like that sort of thing, but a £5 coin for £5 doesn't sound like a great deal to me!

Cold - it's a money making ploy by a marketing company preying on the sentimentality of gullible customers. Once you respond, you'll be bombarded by other 'commemorative' coins.

And calling it a "perfect heirloom" to pass down the family is very lame.

What are you going to say as you pass this treasure down to the kids?

oh dear

oh dear what?
It is a cynical ripoff "commemorative" coin worth £5 being sold for £5.
But oh yes - buying it really honours all those that served or made the ultimate sacrifice. What crap.

cold by me as well , agree its a marketing ploy exploiting the whole D-Day thing

Shouldn't the Bank of England object to the selling of coins?
After all this is "reverse-QE" withdrawing liquidity from the markets!

you're not honouring anyone who gave their life in WWI by buying a coin. Donate it to instead to a service persons charity, give your time to a local charity, etc but don't think this coin is doing anything except making a company a lot of money on the backs of those that died.

Do these generally go up in value?

I voted cold on your behalf with both my accounts.


I vote you be band

I think it looks pretty decent thats a good enough reason to add heat, and it won't depreciate in value

How do your order 5 when it is only 1 per household?

And buying a £5 coin for £5 isn't?

Collect coins for my two boys to commemorate historic events, but these coins from Westminster are not as good as the ones sold by Royal Mint, yes you might pay £10 for £5 but its worth it in the long run for resale or collections.

Serious question, what do people do with these coins?

Can you spend them in shops?

I would imagine most shops wouldn't accept them as most people wouldn't know about them being legal tender

Total profit spin. I'm selling cannon fodder drawings for £1. All done by hand in crayons figuring my trade marked "lest we forgeten". Honour the fallen by buying one or two and your peers will thank you for being a patriot.
