Anybody order one yet? I just ordered mine, $132. They are making 3000 total. Proceeds are going to museum, so it is a good cause.

They are not available until after August 1. I hope the incused "copy" on the coin won t be too obnoxious.

I checked out the website and almost placed an order on the first until I saw that they are going to have the mandated "copy" stamped on them. While I agree that they should, at least put more thought into where it should be placed. Somewhere a bit more concealed would be nice. Then again, it is for a great cause.

Yeah, if they didn't put "copy" on it, it could be in with the $150k originals. :) Did you see the design?

Ok, I do see what the design is. The infused "copy" is on the obverse. I think it could be placed better but at least it isn't on the design elements. I suppose they make it incused so it would be harder to just polish off.

I wonder if they are using the reducing machine or just a CNC machine to make the die? If I lived near there I would go to the party.

I wonder how close the design will be to the original? Since it is a new die, it would not be a restrike.

That is why the law requires it to be incuse and why it specifies a minimum size and depth, to make removal obvious.

Just ordered mine as well, Can't wait.
The fact that the lady on the phone said that Press #1 will be making these coins makes it even better. The coins will contain just a bit over half an ounce of Nevada Silver as well she said.

The coin will have a cool story to go with it.

I need to see what this will actually look like before I consider purchasing. Is there at least a rendition somewhere showing the placement of COPY on the obverse?

I think they will look like the attached. See this link for more info http://mint150.com/ It looks to be rather obstrusive. The replica silver plated ones you can buy on line are less obvious. But I don't want those.
