Just in case anyone is unaware, all the coins sold by the Royal Mint …Just in case anyone is unaware, all the coins sold by the Royal Mint online have a zero value at any bank or shop. They often have promotions offerings a special £5 or £20 coin for £5 or £20 but no bank or shop will accept these coins as they are not legal tender (despite being described as legal tender). The coins can legally only be used to settle Court debts (if you have any). Nice coins to look at but not an investment or worth the sum printed on them.Further details at:antiquestradegazette.com/news/2012/it-s-a-right-royal-mint-rip-off-says-top-dealer/https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/money/news/article-3390519/amp/I-buy-Royal-Mint-commemorative-coins-bulk-credit-card-gain-airmiles-cash-bank-s-refusing-accept-them.htmlIf you purchased coins directly from the Royal Mint but were mislead by their advertised “£20 for £20” and the claim of “Legal Tender” in their adverts online or in print, you can complain to the Royal Mint and return all your coins for a full refund, they will also refund the cost of the return postage. Make sure you use Royal Mail Special Delivery when you return them. Hope this helps someone.


And why on earth would you buy a commemorative set to give it to a bank or shop. These sets are for collectors not for morrisons for your Weekley shop.

I'm not claiming expert status here, but I believe the definition of Legal Tender is a very narrow one which the commemorative coins such as the £100 coins for example fall within. However you are correct in the fact that the vast majority of people would interpret the phrase 'Legal Tender' as meaning they could be spent in a shop if they wanted to do that.

You say that Royal Mint will refund you for these commemorative coins, can you please let me/others know where this information is from, as I'm pretty sure there are others who bought these £20/£50/£100 coins thinking they could be spent/banked if ever needed.

I was duped by Royal Mint and the false claims they made of Legal Tender. After making a telephone call to them and being able to prove I was the original purchase (of their worthless £100 coins) they agreed to cover the cost of special delivery for their return and a full refund. In English Law you have 6 years to make a claim for a breach of contract (as defined by the Limitations Act 1980). Therefore my advice to anyone who was conned by Royal Mint when they claimed Legal Tender for their £20, £100 or any other coins to make a complaint and get a full refund. This is exactly what I did and have tried to spread the message whenever I see any postings for Royal Mint.
Don’t take any of their bull when you telephone, tell them straight “I was conned, you claimed Legal Tender when you knew these coins were worthless”, I also objected to their claim “£20 for £20” as the £20 coin you received was not worth £20 hence they mislead me knowing the coin was worthless

To be fair to them, they didn’t dupe you, you just didn’t understand what “legal tender” is. However, good for them for refunding you.

The concept of legal tender is completely irrelevant when paying for things in a shop. If a shop wants to accept these, they can. They can accept Monopoly money if they want to, or could choose not to accept £50 notes, as many do, despite it being legal tender.

This misconception comes up quite a lot and there’s a good page about it at the Bank of England

"This coin is a commemorative coin so banks, post offices and shops will not accept them.
If individual customers wish to discuss the return of this coin now or in the future please contact our customer services team on 0345 6088 300."
Stick to gold, that way the coin is always worth more than its face value
Good deals on gold Britannia's if that's your bag
