I hate to say it, but..... I think if you become serious about collecting coins in the future, this will be a purchase you second guess. The "article" you saw in the newspaper was actually just an advertisement made to look like a news story. Companies like The World Reserve, World reserve monetary exchange, such and such mint are really not very respected in numismatic circles. They fluff up their products with fancy advertising and pretty packaging and use terms like "only available for 48 hours" and "banker portfolios" to make the unsuspecting buyer think they got a great deal when in all actuality the buyer could have acquired the same item for substantially less. If your happy with the purchase and you are comfortable with what you paid then that's all that matters but most of the time you can find better deals elsewhere.
