    This is not to the credit of Royal Mint at all, it should not have happened at all in the first place and this cheque refund to appease you should be the bear minimum to offer refund your postage costs as it was their mistake to begin with due to crap quality assurance internal processes to let this milk spotted coin out and they should be jumping through hoops to keep you happy as a customer.
    It is very common for them to send out stuff not fit for purpose and you have paid well over the odds for.
    They have long lost my custom as your experience is neither a rarity or exception.  My money spends anywhere and i have no intentions of ever returning to purchase any overpriced offerings
    The more you guys keep lining up to hand over your fiat debt tokens to them the more things will stay the same and nothing changes, says moany northern Paul

    x3 full sovereigns OR a phone that will be outdated in a year or so 
    Know what i would sooner have. Nokia 3310 for my next upgrade  
    When phones were real phones, had battery life that would last a week not just a day, cost less than £50, were indestrubtible if dropped,  didnt have bookface and twatter, all you did was text and call and I can play snake to amuse myself

    The gold souk in old Dubai ( Deira ) is the place for all things gold. The gold industry in Dubai was historically focused towards what we in the west would deem as exotic ( read Indian) jewellery. Commissions were taken on the basis of an agreed spot plus a margin for the workmanship. Even today you will be able to see craftsman at work producing some really exceptional pieces, and if this type of thing floats your boat you will do no better than spending a few hours in around the market place.
    Regrettably however I have always found that for bullion grade ( in particular Krugers and various Oz coins are prevalent ) the margin to spot is no better, even worse,  than what you will be able to buy via Ebay or HGM etc. Towards the creek end of the souk is the old gold exchange building and you may be able to hunt a bargain down in there 
    You will see umpteen 'sovereigns' in shop windows, but be aware that these are 'costume sovs' and from my experience vary from 18 to 21 Carat and weigh less that a stand sov. In fairness to the majority of dealers these are not sold to deceive but are part of the dowry tradition that underpins the indian jewellery market and are sold on AGW. 
    If you are a collector of coins, you can at times find one or other unusual coin that would be a bargain. With the UAE being a federal state you do find that one or other of the emirates do now and then produce specials and I have picked up a couple of nice coins that were produced by/for the emirate of Ajman. Also as a stopover for pilgrims doing the Harji you can always find one of other commemorative from Mecca 
    I would recommend to stay clear of the gold shops at the airport with the one exception that they do on occasions do specials on  UAE specific bullion from the likes of gold.ae and which can add a novality factor to your stack while not breaking the bank to badly
    Safe travels!
