Not worth melting, really. If I remember correctly, they are a silver plated silver alloy. I've seen these for 6.99 on ecrater. There was a lone 22kt. one made, for Lennon's estate. It since been auctioned
But appreciated by fans, I'm sure.

Waste of time, not even worth looking at. It is not a coin, it is metal with "five pounds" written on it!

Well guys, it's not that bad a coin really. IMHO, I don't like talking bad about a coin that commemorates a person that inspired thousands like this one, the SBA dollar, Ike dollar,etc. Though I don't mind you criticizing this one :

Official mintage of the SILVER John Lennon 5 pound coin is a tiny 5,000 coins.These are legal tender official coins.
In the first week they had over 1/4 million orders from around the world!
They sold out very fast and then made a second run,not in silver but in cupro-nickel.
Original cost was around $70.00 US
The silver ones sell at a very nice premium.I stashed away 4 of them.
