Hi Friends,

Did anybody book coin set from the Royal Mint UK?

I understood that they deliver coins all over the world. Just wanted to know about the time of delivery of the sets in India as well as the postage charges etc.?

Appreciate your help on this.

Regards,

Sudip

@Dr.Uday

Yes all the mints announce new coins on their sites. But many of them do not dispatch sets to India.

Hello Dr.Uday

Royal mint uk, US mint, Australia and Canada deliver to India. Finland mint does not.

Please check postal charges before ordering. Sometimes these are too high. If any friends/relatives are staying in these countries its better to get from them. Except for UK. For UK ordering from India is cheaper than purchasing in UK .:D

If you collect EURO you can track them at

HI Vivek,

I am not able to order coins from royalmint UK as I am not seeing India in the list for delivery country. I want to order "The Queen's Diamond Jubilee UK Gold Plated Silver Proof Coin".

Hi Vivek,

I tried to create user ID, but in the "Country" drop-down box, India in not mentioned, so there is no use in creating the same.

Hi Vivek,

Now I am able to see India's name in the delivery list. Also, I am observing that price of a coin for india in less than UK. 

For The London 2012 Olympic Silver Proof Gold Plated £5 Coin-- UK delivery its showing £125 but for india its only £104

Great! It seems there was some problem..else India was on the list.

Yes Its correct...if you order coin in India it costs less as compared to UK. The same was with 2012 Olympics set.(29 coins). It seems taxes are more in UK.

Hello Anil

I had ordered complete set of UK Olympic 50p series. The set was of 29 coins, each coin of 50P with different games from Olympics on it.

I had not paid any extra tax.

Hi Vivek,

At what price you ordered London 2012 Silver 50p Sports Collection Complete Set of 29 Sports coins?? Currently they are quoting 1350 pounds.

I purchased the Olympics, Titanic and Silver Jubilee coins online and they delivered the coins within 2 days in my UK address (I was in UK then). I must say the finish, packaging and delivery are superb. They donot use sticky gums to paste the coins in the card like our Indian mints. Also they seem to be comparatively cheaper than the Indian ones.
