More tiny mintages coming up in about a week. Mayflower silver n' gold, coins n medals.
All being released on a Tuesday. Get ready to identify more Captcha picture puzzles.
Anyone else feeling frustrated already?

    Then you really must get one! That's very interesting! Like a family heirloom.

    US mint product?
    NO THANK YOU - I will be cool and calm on the sidelines. I ceased buying from the mint years ago.
    I am sure we will see lots of dramatic threads with this next round of fake rarities.

    I thought about it but the coins don’t appeal to me, honestly. There’s something about these laser etched (or whatever they use) masters
    that make the coins just look a bit off to me from the earlier eras.

    I'm also a descendant of two on my father's side and maybe another one on my mother's. Not sure I'll get this one but I do have the 1920 Pilgrim Half.

    Think I will try silver. You think it will be a mad rush again?

  • GuxiyouGuxiyou Posts: 45 ✭✭

    Seems like the market will be smaller than either the ASE or AGE. I wouldn't think it would be that big of a deal ..... But, I didn't want to buy the 75 AGE, so .... ;-)

    I'm just thinking out loud...

    I don't think it will be a mad rush, but will definitely move some coins. Four different sets / items with a total mintage limit of 44,500.

    The silver coin set will probably be most popular....but....they're not Eagles.

    Silver & gold commemoratives and medals...with a truly modern "clip-art" look.

    and the other thing to consider is that the prices for silver/gold are still way up there...who knows, could go higher....or drop again...

    I'm waiting on the Adam and Eve coin for the same reason.

    Not interested enough now and if I ever do get more interested, they will always be available at a price. This isn't the last chance to own one, but only the first chance. You'll always need to weigh price against desire to own.

  • I'm getting these as I've picked up the royal mint releases as well - these have a wider market for resale as UK folks will be picking them up too

    notice the earlier release timing if you're going to try and snag em - prob earlier for our friends across the pond

  • ckeusackeusa Posts: 31 ✭✭

    I'm surprised with the general lack of interest for these on the forums. Am I the only one who likes the design? Might try for a silver set...

  • GoldminersGoldminers Posts: 1,803 ✭✭✭✭✭

    There probably would have been more interest if silver coins had been approved for the US to mint, and not medals. but I will be trying for one of each to keep anyway.

  • BryceMBryceM Posts: 9,404 ✭✭✭✭✭

    No interest. In the past 10 years or so the only ones that interested me a bit were the baseball & Apollo issues. Even then, I’d have been better off to wait and get them after the hype.

    I wouldn’t buy any gold or silver from the USM with their high premiums. It’s eye candy but a horrible investment especially when gold and silver may eventually settle back down.

  • JimTylerJimTyler Posts: 1,149 ✭✭✭✭✭

    No. Have fun.

  • the uk coins just went live - £195 for the silver set from royalmint - that's ~$260, with shipping ~$300 ... def not picking those up; appear to be exact same as us pair for $150, even down to the packaging

  • jmlanzafjmlanzaf Posts: 13,967 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Picked up 2 of the UK sets. Why? Because it was sooooo.... easy.

    Maybe no one will want them. But if they do, I really don't need another hour of checkout frustration at the US Mint

  • jmlanzafjmlanzaf Posts: 13,967 ✭✭✭✭✭

    FWIW, the gold 2 coin sets are pre-selling for $2500 on eBay. You can buy up to THREE from the Royal Mint (US$1715)

  • jmlanzafjmlanzaf Posts: 13,967 ✭✭✭✭✭

    While there doesn't seem much interest in these, I will also point out that they don't seem to have a household limit on the silver sets.

    If this thing goes unavailable at 9 a.m. on the U.S. Mint set, I may go buy 100 at the Royal Mint if they are still available. LOL

  • bearcavebearcave Posts: 2,830 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I am not usually interested but I will go see just to have first hand knowledge of the diffilculty. :)

  • even if I were interested I wouldn't be able to buy any without emptying my cart of the WWII ASE V75 which I'm still stubbornly trying to snag.

    I actually cleared my carts this morning. I'd rather buy something than get effed with every morning before work. LOL

    Well the gold US coins are part of a complete modern commemorative set so I am going to try.

    No problem going through process. Left it in the bag without confirming. Just wanted to see if this was going to be a repeat of last time.

  • SpeedieSpeedie Posts: 104 ✭✭

    Got one of each of the four offerings, zero problems.

    This set is a dog. LOL. Only 2 crashes on 8 orders.

    I did get a gold set from the Royal Mint, but really did not need to as the US site was better than normal. However that Royal Mint has some amazing coins, had no idea. They are not cheap, but some very interesting items are there.

    I don't know how many "packaging collectors" there are. But it's minimal risk. And with a limit of 3, it only takes 170 people to sell it out.

    Is PCGS going to slab them as a separate item?

    PCGS did indicate the gold Mayflowers will be in the US modern commemorative Registry sets, so I felt a need to get them, but sure wish the regular gold proof would have been available separate. Maybe if I travel to London I can spend the $25 pound coin on some bangers and mash and a couple pints.

    The site is unavailable here.
    Now at the edit time the coins are "unavailable".

  • MsMorrisineMsMorrisine Posts: 24,814 ✭✭✭✭✭

    you can get excited at a sell out in ... 24 minutes.... but how many newb speculators are going to return them in a few days.

    or even cancel orders before they ship.

    the questions are:
    1) how long will they be available tomorrow
    2) how many will be returned
    3) will returns and cancellations prevent a true sell out
