Yes, I ordered the Megalosaurus one as well.  At face value and free postage, it’s a no-brainer.  I don’t really understand why they’re doing it though.  By paying postage, they’re making a loss on these.  Presumably profits on the full-price products are so high that they can afford it.

Perhaps they were after your name and address or your email address so they can spam you for the rest of your life and beyond? Remember that in a few months, the UK will no longer have GDPR on the books.

Considering that the Westminster Collection is the largest coin dealer in the UK, I am sure they will have already had the details of Deeman and Alan71 anyway. ;)

They wouldn't be after collectors. Their commercial targets would be the get-rich-quickly crowd as that is who the UK mint are targeting.
