Not that I'm knocking Winston but you are spending £5 on a small metal plaque.

It's a collectible coin. Why does it matter where you can 'spend' it? Why would you spend a collectible coin?

agreed!!!

westminster collection coins are ok. but the coins will never go up in value because they are never limited but struck in there hundreds of thousands. shops in jersey wont accept them only jersey post office. it is a good deal if collect anything WInston Churchill. if you compare their proof quality to proof coin you will be disappointed

get royal mint and westminster webpage up and compare the quality and you will see what collectors are looking for

royal mint are doing a collection which are more expensive but are limited coins and worth the investment. jubileemint are only been trading just over a year so it is a hit and miss. but are also doing a churchill coin

the £100 royal mint big ben 2015 coin sold out quickly and can be seen selling around £150 on ebay and will keep creeping up as less and less are listed

heat added as it looks good

its apiece of metal printed on, worthless no serious coin collector would even look at it or anything this company prints (imo)

Yep these things are worthless
People buy them because they think it will become a collectors item, but in reality collectors would just laugh at you if you took it in to them to sell on!
Its only the more expensive minted coins that have a proper collectible value because there are limited quantities available

"Group of select people"
Meaning many thousands will be minted and sold making millions of profit for a coin that actually doesn't have any intrinsic value..

Agree the Winston Churchill thing is great and all that but they are just cashing in here!

They will keep sending you rubbish coins after this and ask you to pay later. You will have to call them and have a fight to stop sending the coins

agreed!!!

calm down dude

Spend £5, get £5. It's no bespoke Amazon voucher.

I bought a number of similar coins years ago as a present / souvenere for our kids. It seemed a good idea at the time but no idea where they are now and they will probably just get thrown out with the other junk when I pop my clogs. This offer just seems a good way to get people to part with their cash.

yawn!!!
it gives you an option read terms before u click yes

I have to agree with a few of the comments. You have to be careful with Westminster Collection, they lure you in with cheap coins then automatically enrol you for a subscription! I bought one coin for about £100 with a D-Day picture in the middle...i'm trying to flog on ebay now as i realised it will not increase in value. My advice to people who are looking to collect coins would be look for limited editions and coins with precious metals like gold and silver. I bought the £100 big ben coin and have just purchased the 2015 gold sovereign. I have bought some of the silver proof coins from Westminster collection which were good.

For Churchill coins you are better off with the £20 silver coin or the £5 silver coin, Royal mint direct.

We have definitely adopted the position at the Peace Conference of arguing in favour of the retention of gas as a permanent method of warfare. It is sheer affectation to lacerate a man with the poisonous fragment of a bursting shell and to boggle at making his eyes water by means of lachrymatory gas. I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes. The moral effect should be so good that the loss of life should be reduced to a minimum. It is not necessary to use only the most deadly gasses: gasses can be used which cause great inconvenience and would spread a lively terror and yet would leave no serious permanent effects on most of those affected

Can I buy hundreds of these on a cashback credit card and then just put the coins back into my bank account and pay off the card before the 56 days are up?

Yes very slow delivery - I ordered some ages ago and got them a week or so back. Dint post the deal on here as thought no one would be interested, and it would turn into a slanging match ... o wait i was right :P

guess no one wants them. markets flooded with these coins. 1977 every company from petrol stations to the corner shops were giving coins away in their millions. its hard to predict which coin will be a collectors dream. but the westminster coins seem to jump on the back of what the royal mint are producing.

the Westminster coin is good value as a keep sake. but the fact they will keep striking the coins until they can,t sell no more and the die will only be reworked when its obvious the they quality is below standard.
its £5 coin for £5 and will always be worth £5 but to get it back you gonna have to travel to Jersey.

even buying silver or gold coins don't guarantee you will get back what you paid as if know one wants it. it will be scrap value and there are a lot of coins melted for this reason.

Agreed, They are legal tender - IN THIS COUNTRY, & as such are a good investment as they will never go down in value.
In fact these are already being sold for around £24 +PP on ebay even though they're still available from Royal Mint for £20 !!

He was the reason we confronted Hitler and stopped what could have been a world disaster (I.E too late to stop the nazis), before that we were using 'Appeasement' to basically let Hitler do what he wanted. Not only that but Churchill had the necessary skills and character to lead the armed forces and that's why he is know as our best "wartime politican"

In terms of being "racist" what you are saying is completely out of context...He was brought up in the British Empire with Colonial rule. His views were by and large the accepted mainstream at the time. I think it would be asking to much to expect him to be a revolutionary on multi culturalism and political correctness which we indulge today, in addition to all the other things he did!

the other thing to bear in mind as in March 2015 the Royal Mint are changing the Queen's portrait, so all coins will have a different back to them. This is the first time since 1998. Therefore some 2015 coins will only have a 3 month lifespan (increasing collectability) hence why I bought the gold sovereign 2015 (a little pricey though) this year will be the first in 100 years that two gold sovereigns are released in the same year. You could probably sell both as a package on ebay for £900-£1000

He was a racist, plain and simple, your justification that everyone was a racist back then is kind of meaningless. He was also in favor of eugenics and an all around vile human being.

A quote from Hitler... I mean Churchill:
"the unnatural growth of the feeble-minded and insane classes is a national and race danger which it is impossible to exaggerate. The source from which this stain of madness is fed should be cut off and sealed up before another year has passed."
