I'm glad the one I truly want doesnt come out for a few years until all this settles. These premiums are a joke.

I won't be buying one! Makes the Aussie hockeypucks even more inviting!

I think it's time the US Mint reconsiders how they are doing this distribution thing. Distributors selling at nearly double melt somehow does not seem to be the original intent on how the system was set up. I thought the intent was for the distributors to resell at reasonable levels.......

<< Seems awfully high for 700.00 worth of melt. >>



My thoughts exactly. I was going to buy the 5 coin set and then I saw the price. The secondary market for these will either go crazy or as you pointed out end up being worth $700 melt.

I'd have paid $900 or so or maybe a little more. I'm going to end up passing on these, which of course means they'll sell for moon money in the near future.

I decided to buy a set. Who knows what the price of silver will be next year the way it is going today. I'm only buying these and this is the end of it.

How disappointing. Betcha the Mint is kicking themselves for not being the sole source for this massive gouge.

All the BS associated with these, and this thread in particular, has killed every ounce of interest I ever had in them! The title should include "FLIPPER" in some way or another!

I have to admit that I am pretty pissed off. The Bullion distribution system was not set up so that a handful of companies could make an exorbitant profit on the exclusivity that the mint granted them. It was not supposed to be a government sanctioned ripoff of the people. I was expecting, and willing, to pay a premium, but not almost double spot. That actually goes against the wording of the bullion distribution system. BS. BS. BS.

This is a higher price than most of us would have expected, but does it say anywhere what the Mint charges the distributors for these rounds?

It's going to more like Spot + $2-3 per ounce.


The Mint is going to sell them at spot plus for sure.



These are bullion and the mint will sell them as such.

Ok, but realize that this is a set that now has a maximum amount of sets that can be completed @ 33,000.

Low mintage is readily excepted as a value driver in other issues (How about $130 oz for Lincoln Chronicles?), why not this one?
