Thanks for the info Bizy. I see the same thing on APMEX. Wonder what the price will be!

With Ag under 28, I might be tempted to buy the bullion versions if I can find them at a reasonable price. Even the UNC versions will hopefully be under 190 with current prices of Ag.

I'm in for two each of the 2012 bullion coins if and when they become available, the 2011s should be around for years to come, right now they are about $147-$148/ea., they are excellent buys at this level. Realistically, the collector versions should drop another $25.00, the sales have really slowed since Ag tanked below $30/oz.

That's the price for the bullion right? I checked the Mint and the uncirculated are still 204 95. I'm not paying that. I wish I could get the bullion at my local dealer.

Yah, the bullion coins typically sell for a few dollars over spot at the various dealers (APMEX, Providence, etc.).

Glad to hear there might finally be some movement of these pucks, looking forward to seeing the new ones and what prices they will be asking. Thanks for the updates!

Hey Bizy,

I checked out APMEX and the date I saw for availability on these are 6/1/12 not 6/30/12.

Teach, thanks for the update, APMEX did change the date from 6/30 to 6/1/12. Sure hope this is a real date and not some made up date they put in to get customers going. I haven't gotten my alert message yet, so I'm just crossing my fingers and hope if they are released on 6/1 they'll cost between $150-$160 a bullion puck.

@angel2004: Yeah, the $148 I am quoting is for the bullion 2011 versions. If Ag stays under $30 for at least a month, the Mint should reprice the uncirculated versions to $179.95, another $25.00 drop. Right now there is nearly a $60 spread between bullion and collector versions. If they are repriced, it would rather suck for those of us that paid $204 and $229, but that's how it goes when you dabble in PMs. Even some of the 2010s can be had for less than the issue price of $279 if you shop carefully. These are NOT universally beloved coins.

Thanks Bizy.....looks like you can order now, but I think I will have to wait or should probably wait since I will be on vacation and not home until June 5th. I assume the post office would hold these until I got home, but I don't know if I want to do that. Silver will probably go up during the next two weeks knowing my luck :) I think I will order a couple when I get home, along with the silver proof set, and the 2012 ASEs from SanFran.Going to be a busy week of buying silver. Now I wonder when the rest of the 5 oz pucks will start moving and if it will be a push like last year.

The current price is $165 which is pretty good considering that the 2010 I looked at is $233! They are still a bit rich for me.
