    Ok, I know only 50,000 will be produced, but what do you think about having a £100 coin? That's a lot of money to lose down the back of the sofa!

    Here's what it would look like..

    is this for real? Damn :lolwut:
    As the article clearly says, this is a commemorative coin, and the way you "get your hands on one" is by, er, ordering one from the Royal Mint.

    Although yes, they are technically legal tender, they are generally sold for quite a bit more than their face value so you'd be bonkers to use them as such.

    I have a £20 coin that the Mint made last year, £100 is a little out of budget though. I've never even seen a £100 note in my life, let alone a coin

    €500 notes actually exist (that's ~£390). The UK gov't doesn't like them though because apparently they're quite handy for money laundering.
