I talked to MeriIt, too. These 1/4oz coins are being offered (when spot was right around $23) in boxes of 300 coins (15 tubes of 20 coins) for $5K.
That's a bit over twice spot--at a "mini-monster box" purchase level. Oh, well-- another rarity that seems destined to escape my clutches...

Rep called me back and said they could be purchased in smaller lots at $1,500 (Cali company. Cali law no sales tax over $1,500 was the reason he cited).

Would be a fun coin to have a few samples of

Is this thing minted by the British government or a private mint? Is it a bullion coin like the ASE?

Rick, it is a bullion coin for sure, but minted under a partnership with the British Royal Mint. The silver was recovered by Odyssey, and this special mintage struck.

Some of the other tabs on the site have some additional very cool info!
