The Undated 20p
worth reading this about the "london mint office" The London Mint Office
the address i posted is an official site advertised on bbc news.
The Royal Mint is the offical one in my eyes - they are the ones who make the money! The one linked is the 'official site' of a seperate company with a similar name.
o sell yours for £50 to The London Mint Office you MUST register with us FIRST. We are only accepting 15,000 registrations so you should make your application without delay.
That is to sell to a private company, which has a name similar to the Royal Mint.
nothing strictly wrong, but I bet a fair few will be confused.
I know its 'from the BBC' but the BBC do get things wrong quite abit, so its always worth researching deeper than what they put out and accept it as fact.

Re-read what I wrote, and the other page I linked to, no dispute its a real company !?
It is not the Royal Mint though, its like you putting a page up about it.
So anyone got one?
They will be very very rare and would keep hold of it as once out of circulation will be worth more than £50.
for crist sake rob i was posting a thread to make people aware and you make it look like i was posted an affiliate page or something.
ill remember not to do it next time like all the other members dont post because others like to make comments like you do..
Loads on ebay - and exactly why companies like the one posted above are trying to stock up.
I was trying to help out if you had bothered to read and understand it rather than fly off the handle.
The site you linked to, as above, is out to collect as many as possible as they will be going up in value. It is not 'official' like they are trying to make out ie. similar names to Royal Mint etc.
Its not a hard concept , and I am trying to help out but if you take the BBC as gospel and you cannot read then the whole point will sail above your head.
i dont take bbc as gospel and i did read what you said and you did and others msn'ed me saying rob thinks you are posted an affiliated site hence i posted.
lets drop it and get back to thread...
I couldnt spot you on msn thats why I posted
Just looked through approx £500 of shrapnel to see if I had any.
I found 7 20p's with the same design but they all had the date 2008 on them
Worst thing was, I picked one up, turned it over and there was no date !! then I realised my finger was covering the little date ffs
Nice if you can find one, selling upwards of £450 each on ebay now !
I might go down the arcade now with the £500
"What can I get you"
"£500 of 20p's please"
Or you can turn it over for 50 quid to "The London Mint" and then they can flip it for 450 pounds. Nice little pseudo-scam they've got going. I say "pseudo" because as far as I can tell from their marketing material, they do plan to pay for the coins - they're just counting on the publicity to get people basically lining up around the block to:-
A) Sign up for their marketing lists
B) Sell them coins at 10% of market value
I got a bit confused myself, either a scam company looking to buy them up for resale and profit and not 10,000 and more like 300 and rare or it's an official buy back which considering the product and that they're distinguishable, I doubt it. Keep the coin yourself, sell it for more.
The Queen is not amused, she should shut 'em down.
When I first heard about this through word of mouth from friends they were under the impression that "The London Mint" were actualy the producers of the coin and doing some kind of recall. Its very misleading to the average joe.

Well, I tried to sign up for the London Mint Office, and unless you have a reservation number "(from advert)" they won't let you join, anyway.
Pardon my absence, I have a piggy bank to rape ...
Saw this on BBC news yesterday. First thing I done was checked the change in my pocket. Sure many folks done the same
