The Royal Mint 50% off a few commemorative coins

Posted 13th Oct

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

You can get 50% off selected coins and collectables from the royal mint if you go via our link and add the MSE Blagged code DSC280 at the checkout by 11.59pm on Sun 13 Oct, while stock lasts.
The code’s only valid on items displayed when you go via the link above, so take care not to navigate to other pages of The Royal Mint website.
Prices begin at £5 (norm £10) for limited edition 2017/18 uncirculated 50p coins. Designs include Beatrix Potter and Paddington Bear 50p coins as well as Game of Thrones and Star Wars medals.
The Royal Mint tells us that the coins are not spendable and are intended as collectable items only, so this deal isn't strictly MoneySaving since the cost of the 50p coins is well beyond the usual worth of the denomination.

However, they’re popular with collectors and make nice gifts, and at 50% off there's always a chance the coins could appreciate in value in the future if you're interested in selling them on.

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.

If 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.

This is incorrect as they sell £2 coins and 50 pences which are coins of the realm and legal tender. Whether someone would want to spend £10 on a bunc commemorative 50p and then spend it as 50p is debateable. Whether someone would want to spend £65 on a silver proof £2 and then spend it as £2 is unlikely. The £5 coin remains legal tender .

Total rubbish - they are just baubles - worth nothing
Thx for sharing. Delivery cost needs to be factored in if the order is under £45

As widewill stipulated in his post, only much more succintly...
Thanks OP, just got a Paddington Bear and James bond silver proof coins. Won't be trying to spend them so I am fine if they are not legal tender.... but I think they are. Looking forward to the Berexit coin!

I ordered the silver proof Paddington too, managed to use the extra 10% off code so it came out at £27 & gave me free postage

Most people buy to collect do they not? I never buy coins to spend.
