So we saw how everything blew up for the limited mintage coins/medals these past few days, but why doesn't anyone care about the weir farm 5oz silver coin, limited to 20,000. I've bought two of them in the past, thought they'd be a nice item to pass down someday, but the year is coming to a close and they're not sold out yet. Just boring subject matter that hasn't enticed anyone?

Just a newbie question, would like a better feel on when it's worth focusing on limited mintage vs subject matter. I have to think someday when they sell out, the premium will rise.

It's just an oversized quarter and nothing to do with WWII.

I guess I just viewed it more as a unique limited mintage silver round.

It's a little odd that just because the US Mint decided to stamp something about wwii, it's automatically ascribed a super high premium. I have my grandfathers helmet that he actually wore in the Philippines during the war, and is a much bigger/more tangible part of history than this coin, but not worth nearly as much....When it comes down to it, it's just a design on a piece of metal, and isn't really a part of that historical event... so why would 1 ounce of silver of somewhat limited mintage about wwii be more valuable than 5 ounces of silver with much more limited mintage....

Just all public perception about what creates value I suppose. I'm glad I got the ASE and the medal from the mint, because I wouldn't pay more than that for them personally....

More people are collectors of ASEs than 5-oz pucks. Supply...demand.

Tragicially, I collect both.
