Insert both codes.

I have just checked it seems the code may have expired for the extra 12£ off. I inserted it yesterday and it worked, it looks like the 50% code off works though.

A spectacular marketing howler from the Mint. They brought out the £60 coins and those that wanted them bought them. So far so good, but then they decided to throw in a book in a pretty box for double the price. Who wants to pay an extra £60 for a book worth £10 to £15 at best?  The answer was nobody. We'd already bought the £60 coins when first issued with the new perspex display holders.  A couple of years down the line they've still got all these book sets taking up space where they need to dump unsold recent coins which haven't started to gather any dust yet. So well done to any latecomers to the party. You guys can now reap the rewards and grab the box sets whilst the strategists at the Mint try to work out what went wrong.

A bit of a slap in the face eh? What was the LEP of the book and coins compared to just the coins, out of interest?

They have done similar recently with the silly different Snowman issues (there the original Mint version is the clear winner imo) but more of a direct comparison Paddington Bear (as if the mintage of the silver wasn't high enough already - DOH!) so those will be for sale at some point no doubt. People don't want to buy them at £60 so why would they want to spend twice the money for a book presentation of 3000? :wacko:

The icing on the cake has got to be the gold proof Paddington at Buckingham Palace for an extra £200 over the coin issue price just because the second coin did so much better than the first. LEP just 100 but still...🤣
