I ran a couple of posts recently (here and here) on buying coins from the Royal Mint at face value. Whilst this sounds slightly crazy, it allows you to ‘manufacture’ credit card spending to meet a sign-up bonus target, or to use up a 3V Virtual Visa card.
The Royal Mint website has announced that June 30th will be the last day to order their Olympic coins. The 50p and £5 coins – which are currently being sold at 50p and £5 each! – will then be withdrawn from sale.
Jump in now if you’re still interested. Use code HT7WEB to get free postage, saving £3.
