Quote from: eurocoin on December 05, 2016, 09:30:57 PMAs more and more vending machine owners are realizing that the trial 1 pound coins are worth quite a lot of money, they are now ordering large quantities of trial coins at the mint using all kinds of excuses. At the same time the value of the trial 1 pound coins has dropped from 300 to around 110 pounds per piece.
Quote from: Alan71 on December 05, 2016, 11:46:57 PMJust had a look on eBay at the ones being sold now... who really wants to pay over £100 for a coin that looks as though it's circulated for at least five years? Even if I had money to burn, I'm not sure I'd be that bothered about it. I might consider forking out £25 for a pack from the Royal Mint though.

Quote from: FosseWay on December 06, 2016, 09:20:43 PMI think they'll be on a sticky wicket with that, unless they can demonstrate that the seller him/herself is the thief. AFAIK if someone buys one of these, finds one or is given one in good faith, it is their property to be disposed of as they wish, including on eBay.
