LEGO fans in the UK and Europe, your time has come: the VIP collectible coins have finally returned to the Rewards Centre.
You’ll likely have to act fast if you want them – at least based on how quickly they sold out when they first landed across the first half of 2021 – and you’ll need a serious stash of VIP points if you’re after a full collection. Each of the five coins originally required 1,150 points apiece to redeem, which means a complete set (along with the accompanying coin holder) will set you back a total of 6,900 points.
If you were lucky enough to snag any or all of the Pirates, Space, Castle, Town or gold coins the first time round, you won’t be able to double up today: for the time being, each of the coins is limited only to VIP members who haven’t previously claimed them. If you’re just missing one or two, this is the perfect opportunity to complete your collection.
The LEGO Group has promised to make the coins more widely available if supplies last longer than expected, but that seems an unlikely scenario all things considered. The full set of coins was fetching serious sums on eBay as recently as yesterday, and while their value will probably drop following the second run, the collectible tokens still appear to be in high demand.
LEGO fans in the US and Canada will be able to redeem the coins from 9am EST today, January 11. We’ll give you another reminder at the time.
