Actually these coins cost less wen u order from India, taxes on Special coins are more in UK and elsewhere, but u have to shell out 10 pounds as postage from India, thats bit expensive,  the trick is to order two or 3 coins at once, the postage charges remain same for upto 4 coins depending on weight of coins :D
