Was teaching the children (they asked first, ages 7 and 5) about coins recently and they'd never seen a £5 coin before so I thought I'd get them one each.
To my surprise none of the 7 Post Offices including the large Belfast one stocks any collectible coins any more... I used to collect but sold my collection when I was in need of cash and never took it up again.
A man in the Belfast PO said they'd stopped getting them into Post Offices years ago. So I ordered a couple of base metal ones from the RM website but slightly disappointed as these ones are sealed in presentation wallets so they cost more and the kids can't handle them. Was hoping for the £5 for £5 thing that used to be offered.
