Why do we offer a saving on the first coin in a set? 

  • We believe this is the best way to introduce you to a collection and trust that this first coin will assure you of the quality of craftsmanship and convince you that this is a collection not to be missed.

How our collections work:

  • By purchasing the Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary £5 coin you will be guaranteed access to the remaining five coins in the Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary Coin Set, each coin will be sent entirely on approval at just £39.95 +£3.99 postage and packaging service.
  • The Bradford Exchange applies stringent quality controls to all its coins and you have the added assurance that every issue is sent on 14-days approval. There is no risk and no commitment to buy – you can view each coin before making up your mind whether to add it to your collection.
  • Each of the future coins will be sent to you to view entirely on approval and without obligation, at approximately 3-4 weekly intervals on The Bradford Exchange 14-day home approval service.
  • You can relax knowing that you will be able to complete your set, easily and affordably, should you choose to do so. You’re not at risk of an increase in the price on the remaining commemoratives in the set, nor will you miss out due to an edition sell-out.
  • For your convenience you do not need to order each coin separately – simply pay for the editions you choose to keep as and when you receive them. If you have paid by credit or debit card, we will use the same payment method for subsequent issues. If you wish to amend your payment instructions, you may do so at any time.

What if I don’t want any more coins or change my mind about the collection?

  • We make it easy for you to opt-out of any collection. Should you, at any time, not wish to continue with a collection – simply call us on 0333 003 1545. Our lines are open Monday-Friday – 9am-5pm and Saturdays – 9am-4pm.

Please follow the steps in our easy-returns service as outlined above.

Am I committed to buying any further coins? 

  • No. In fact, you aren’t even committed to buying this first coin. If, after receiving it you decide it is not for you, simply return it to us, within 14 days, for a refund.
  • Similarly, each coin in the set will be sent to you to view entirely on approval and without obligation, at approximately monthly intervals. You only need to pay for the coins you wish to keep and may stop collecting at any time; just call us to let us know.
