As a company with 1100 years of heritage that produces its products in Britain and always makes efforts to showcase British craftsmanship and design I find it surprising that people focus on the face value of coins marketed at collectors. Brilliant uncirculated coins are worth the premium in my opinion.
For those that don't want to pay it, you can't beat the value that the coin in your pocket offers. Just enjoy the designs and the story behind the coins!
I see the silver kilo coin will cost £3000, the price of a kilo of silver is £853.
People must put a lot of faith in a coin that costs over 3 times face value, big gamble ?
Are people sure there will be a return in years to come? i dont, if the price of silver drops you could be left wit a expencive lump of metal !!!!
Design studios must wet themselves when a govt-backed agency call (the London 2012 logo springs to mind), they seem to charge premium rates for poor, unimaginative work.
the coin May look like a map of South America to anyone who does nothing better every day than criticize.....if they take a step backwards and take another look, they would see the face of Charles Dickens in profile made up of all his famous books....huh some people....

Yes you can, the real value of the coin drops constantly due to inflation. Gold doesn't though does it? Now that's value.
I work for The Royal Mint and it's interesting to hear the feedback on our products.
Well let me make your life more interesting with a question.
How come the royal mint wanted to charge me more for 2012 gold sovereigns than a coin dealer and would only dispatch in Jan with the sovs arriving in November from a coin shop?
Go on, you have got me interested, answer that. ..... and also I would like to pass comment on your 'heritage'...........
No wonder you have been in business for 1100 years, you are a monopoly and even easier to stay in business when you base your product on a coin which 100 years ago had some quality constituents and intrinsic value and then downgrade the ingredients to junk metal over the next century until we arrive at today's currency. A few months back all pre 1984 might be 94? 1p and 2p coins were worth more melted than their face value same with the silver colour coins but. Today's coins would melt for FA as they have no intrinsic value yet you still convey the image of now non existent quality materials.
Also, years ago you could get real money (silver or gold) if you handed in your coin. Is that true today? ..... and I don't mean the negligible amount of real money you could get for its face value at the metal dealer. Is that what you mean by value?
Just one more, who says a pound is actually worth a pound? Only as long as people continue to believe it has value. As it has no longer intrinsic value so how can it represent value?.
10/10 for daring to raise your head above the parapet though.
I expect the designer has put in a lot of work to create this design so I'll postpone final judgement until I get one in my loose change. When theRoyl Mint put Charles Darwin on the back, it was much clearer to me. Perhaps it is time I went to a certain opticians.
You can have all the heritage you can buy when you have a licence to print.
Sounds like the sequel to the emperors new clothes to me.
