what a waste of money in a literal sense.

what a waste of money in a literal sense.


You would never be out of pocket

i think you should have stated only 250,000 will be struck which makes this coin very collectable and you cannot lose money as its worth the £20 you pay as legal tender..hot from me

Hi, is this coin in .999 silver priced at £20 or is there another one exactly like it in .999 silver but at a higher price?

Slightly confused.

Cheers.

At current prices it's worth £6.12 for the silver. Hardly a great investment.

People, this is like a having a £20 note, but in a silver coin format. Nice gift to save for the future and if you do not pay the delivery fee it is impossible to lose money.

Not really, you can spend a £20 note. The only place that will accept these coins for payment is the post office, some banks will let you pay it into a bank account. You should be able to sell it sometime in the future for more than it's face value.

Look on ebay at completed listings ... someone sold one for £90

Not out until 4th November, plus think they will all have been ordered by now, very little chance of any being still available.

sorry for the above reasons cold!

This is physical sliver not digital. current cheapest physical 31 gram silver coin cost £27-29.
and for limited coin it's a good price.

its not the silver thats of value its worth the £20 as legal tender and collectors will pay a premium for limited edition coins..if you manage to get one you cannot lose as its worth the £20 already

Yes looks like they have sold 2 of something they don't even have yet and don't know if they will be lucky enough to get, as they say in the listing will be shipped after 1st November.

Ebay shouldn't allow people to sell something they don't have.

£3 delivery, otherwise you should change the price to £60.

I would imagine that is just to protect them in the event of any issues regarding production etc. Surely they will just stop taking orders if the 250,000 sell out.

Got mine in the post today Keeping them for my sons memory boxes.

No, there was no e-mail. They just arrived through my letterbox this morning.

is it me or do those coins look really small in the pic?

I must be looking at the wrong site. Is paying the full face value for a gift voucher also a deal?

Thanks OP, just ordered three

On Royal Mint coins, yes. They are collectables and normally double or more the face value.

delivery after 11 November and you pay today itself :-(
