    Have I been ripped off? I can't seem to find any information at all, even from the royal mint. one Crown, tombac, gold looking.

    Minted in Gibraltar. They tend to chug out "commemorative" and "collector" coins.
    I can't say if you got ripped off or not since we don't know how much you paid.
    I CAN say that it is not something I would've paid a premium for.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    FYI - WWII Canadian nickels from 1942-45 were made from this composition and listed as tombac nickels in many references

    It is *not* related to the "Royal Mint". It is a wholly, and totally independent sourcing and manufacturer of tokens and commemorative tokens and such.

    below excerpt taken from their Company-background page https://www.londonmintoffice.org/company-information/company-background
    The London Mint Office is a privately owned company established in 2006. It is part of Samlerhuset AS, a Norwegian company based just outside of Oslo who are one of Europe's biggest distributors of commemorative coins and medals and the owner of the Norwegian Mint.Together with its sister organisations across Europe, The London Mint Office provides a wide range of coins from ancient to modern, originating from virtually every country in the world.

    I think it's the UK version of the Franklin Mint something like that.
