Interesting. Looks like the minimum purchase is a tube of 15. So, $765 + premium.

So, an interesting flipper opportunity.

For those that are still interested, I was told the mintage of these would be 500,000 max. I was able to place my order on Oct. 1 and received my coins today.



I think they are pretty nice looking but that is just my opinion.

The coin does look nice. What is its diameter?
By chance, does anybody know where we can get one in Canada (at a price that is approaching reasonable)

None of these have shown up on eBay yet, I search for them every few days.

The diameter of the coin is about 38.1mm. They are pretty thick coins, about 4.3mm thick.

I purchased 1 Roll of 15 coins for about 68.00 per coin, so there is a premium attached. Due to their thickness I am having trouble finding a capsule to store them safely individually. All mine look great to me so I separated them into flips so as to not cause any damage. If anyone knows of a capsule for slightly thicker coins that would be a great help!

I am surprised that none of these have shown up anywhere else. I would think other people would have them by now. Lear is the only distributor of them in North America so I don't know if that is a factor in people obtaining them or not.

Hopefully some of this info helps. I hope the rest of you that want one are able to obtain them at some point.

'PlatinumDuck' said "I purchased 1 Roll of 15 coins for about 68.00 per coin, so there is a premium attached"

Yup, to say the least, that's about $18/ounce over spot. For a bullion coin, I wasn't impressed. I was expecting to pick up a tube for under $900, but my quote today matched 'PlatinumDuck's' at $68.07/coin (1-1/2ounces)Current spot price I show at Kitco is $34/ounce or $51 per 1-1/2 ounces.

Well, as a collector coin I like the design (oohh shiny!) and I am curious to see if they will go up/down with the silver prices/collector demand.

At these prices, I'd be up for 2 or 3 coins, not a full tube. (for my collection only!)

Yup, I agree, I would probably only get one- maybe 2.

But if the people started to get the coins, and the minimal order is tube of 15 coins, so why nothing appears on the eBay?
