Dublin Mint Office

Looks like a free Medal being issued until you visit the website where they try to scan you into buying a gold one!!!

Thanks to older posts on boards.ie These are Scam artists.

Well known scam artists with deliberately misleading name, based in UK I believe.

Advertising all over the place, even a well known radio show gave them an advertising slot under the guise of a valuable coins piece. They've been called out by the advertising watchdog already.

Joe Duffy was on about it today, apparently sent an OAP a demand for payment of €47,000. As expected they are "experiencing a high volume of calls" and offering a callback after which phone goes dead.

Anybody know whats the story if you sent off for the first in the series of Jim Ftzpatrick medals, do they invoice you for it unless you send it back. I see from their flyer that they will send one a month (to complete the set of six). after that and then invoice you.

PS, I have since heard that having sent the first one, the next four are 30 odd euro but,,,,,,,,,,,,the sixth one to complete the set is>>>>
€450 !!!!!

These coins won't even be worth their asking price in a few years, let alone appreciating in value. Why are they not shut down? Absolute junk.
I used like Fitzpatrick's kitsch Celtic pop art, looks like he's sold out.
