    Why can't this be stopped ? They are playing on vulnerable people and have just tricked my wife into buying into their obnoxious scam.

    The good news for those who have ordered and paid for anything from London Mint that never arrived is that they are in pretty much the same position as those who ordered something which did arrive. Better off in fact, as they don't have a worthless lump of metal cluttering up their shelves.

    The penny is worth less than a penny.
    It certainly is not gold!
    If you look on their latest TVs advert it becomes obvious that the outfit is operated by a moron.
    If you look at the emblem to the right of the coin it says.
    Surely any official coin outlet would not ha "ENDERED"
