The silver-plated 50-cent Titanic coin is already on the "Last Chance" page of the RCM's website -- they must have been popular with dealers and Masters Club members!

Maybe a few speculators out there?!

Collecting history, one commemorative coin (or medal) at a time!

Citadel Coins in Halifax does a lot of RCM product business and since Halifax is where Titanic victims are buried (amongst other things Titanic related), I am pretty certain a few will be available in his store. The store receives a lot of tourist traffic.

I didn't realize he had a physical store. I'll have to check it out when we visit N.S. this summer.

I'm not overly a fan of commeratives - but I might get a few Titanic ones - given the local importance (it was built here).

kinda thought this might happen, really glad I bought two now!
Surprised by the swiftness of the sellout though, the pre-orders through the masters club and dealers must have been heavy

I ordered one Feb 20 from the mint and just ordered two more from a dealer today.

A little speculation on my part but worst case, I can give them as gifts to the kids. I like combining history and coin collecting. Kids get something shiny and also learn a little about the past.

Plated copper with some paint. I'm sure RCM wishes they had 25k mintage on this one 'cause it has to have a great profit margin.

Seems like everyone is sinking their money into this coin!

I think it will be a winner.

Sinking?

Really?



The dealers seem to be playing with this one too (like the 50 cent roll). The folks in KW were sold out earlier this morning but have more stock now.

I mentioned in another thread that I got the set of three Titanic coins from Talisman here in the U.S.

The $0.50 coin was the only one that was more than the RCM price. It was $39.95 vs. the RCM $34.95.

The lower mintage, the design, and the relatively lower price (even though it is just silver plated) I think will keep it holding its value if not more.

I thought of getting one from Canada Post, but this one never even made it to their website although the quarter and the silver $10 are there.

I'm anxious to see it in hand.

it seems like jandm is still taking orders of this coin and the 50 cent roll at issue prices. I don't see any limit on purchase.

There is at least one other dealer out of Winnipeg that has them too though with a limit of one.

Interesting. An auction appeared on eBay an hour ago for this coin and it starts at 90USD with a buy-it-now price of 100USD.

Will this coin be the star of the 2012 issues?
