    Its not my thing but you do get 5 of them. And prices are rising as well as Silver Premiums so IDK. I wouldn't pay it but it isn't that surprising.

    5 for $152.50! I thought these were mostly bullion.

    @JBK .... They are... 90% silver....I have one by my desk here. Not sure why, but looked and there it was. ;) Cheers, RickO

    It looks to be an outlier result as you can find five of them for less than $100 (they are widely available even individually for less than $20 each).

    A little on the high side.

    I would never pay over melt for them. Actually, I even think at the current melt price, they would be too expensive. The last time I bought one was a few years ago for $5. Nice design, but extremely common in both proof and unc.

    A lot of people with disposable income during covid were born in these years. Rather, some of them are experiencing wealth for the first time in their lives thanks to stocks, commodities, crypto whatever.

    This is the first time buying coins for some of them. +Fear of Missing Out. +Rising tides raise all ships.

    Gotta realize, too, some stuff from the early 70s is half a century old now. Soon, the 80s will be 50 years ago. I believe a ton of modern stuff got melted by 2010 and it's only gonna be harder to find after this mess is over.

    Modern commems and small silver are going to continue to do incredibly well.
