Just ordered.Really nice design.

A Brand New Five Pound coin has just been issued to celebrate the 2015 Display Season of the RAF Aerobatic Squadron – the Red Arrows.

The coin features their brand new tail fin design unveiled earlier this year - and you can add it to your collection today for its face value £5 - POST-FREE.

Fully approved by the MOD and Her Majesty the Queen, this is the ONLY OFFICIAL £5 coin to be issued in partnership with the RAF for this 2015 display season.

no, that only happens when silly people don't read what they tick and end up signed up to a subscription or something

never had an issue with this place, ordered many coins from them and paid exactly what I expected to pay

ordered from these people before, never had a problem with them, ok they send pointless emails and letters but they can easily be deleted and thrown away, but never had a problem with them taking random money amounts

I think you'll find that no one even slightly "internet savvy" has had an issue with money being taken and "random" coins turn up at their door

nice coin but not filling in 3 pages of info. they should use PayPal.

I got a coin from them last year. had about 20 letters since then.

Legar tender in Jersey only

If the coin is legal tender in UK, then is another story ...

Most people would not wish to exchange a crown piece, but in recognition of the fact that some people may wish to do so, some banks will allow crowns to be deposited into bank accounts. However, please note that whilst the coins are legal tender, banks are not obliged to accept the coins.

Shane Bissett, the Royal Mint’s director of commemorative coin, said: “All our UK £5 coins are legal tender as defined by the Coinage Act 1971.

“So, while they may not be in general circulation like other coins, they have been declared by royal proclamation to be a coin with a face value of £5.”

He added: “The claims made have no foundation. A number of UK high street banks have reaffirmed to us that they will accept £5 commemorative coins issued by The Royal Mint should their customers wish to deposit them. Indeed, the banks in question have for many years issued materials to all the cash handlers in their branches so that such coins may be readily identified.”

A spokeswoman for Barclays confirmed that the bank accepts the coins.

I highly doubt anyone would buy these coins to spend or even think about spending in the future, would have to be pretty hard up and near the point of suicide before I'd want spend my collection of £5 coins..

there will most likely be someone who thinks they can buy their fish and chips with one though, so your information was worth posting

Ordered and heated, does look nice. Unticked all the boxes offering offers, see if that works.

Initial charge was £25 delivered...
