    That is an impressive Lion design. Might look for a silver one.... Cheers, RickO

    Did anyone calculate the cost of that coin per ounce? I'm guessing there's quite a markup over bullion value.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    I'm betting once I held this puppy in hand the markup would make more sense.. 120mm is about the size of a dinner plate

    I calculated that this coin costs $46.39 per Troy ounce. Quite a markup over melt. I'm guessing they'll be a lot closer to melt value in the secondary market.

    It's 96.45 troy oz.

    It's neat looking. And I like the presentation. But paying well over $4k for a new 100 ounce silver bar?

    Interesting detective work on this one:

    This piece is from the Czech Republic.
    But it's not really Czech.

    You can see on the reverse that it's actually issued by the tiny island territory of Niue, way out in the middle of the South Pacific 1,500 miles east of New Zealand. Niue has a population of about 1,900 people. Incidentally, Niue is 10,211 miles--just about half-way around the world--from the Czech Republic.

    But it's not really Niuean. Because Niue doesn't actually have a mint.

    So these pieces are struck in New Zealand.
    But New Zealand's coins are struck in the United Kingdom and Canada.

    So these Czech non-circulating legal tender bullion pieces are issued by a dot in the ocean with the population equivalent to a large US high school, but minted by a private company in New Zealand.

    What other coins does this private New Zealand company produce?

    Glad you asked! :D Pieces like...

    The legal tender Rick & Morty coin:

    The legal tender Face of Gotham Joker:

    The legal tender Admiral Akbar "Chibi" coin:

    Pretty cool design.

  • rickoricko Posts: 98,724 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I do like the silver 'coin' in the OP.... Though I will not be acquiring one... As to the other 'coins', no thanks.... Cheers, RickO

    Because his intrinsic value keeps falling. :D

    @weiss I think 'collectable and bullion' coins are minted in New Zealand and circulation coins are minted by Royal Mint, Royal Canadian mint. New Zealand mint is private, and was sold decade or so ago. I tried to get some info on an older release and they could not help me at the time. I stopped all purchases from them soon after. Crappy resale market imo.

    "Crappy resale market imo."

    Is an understatement.

    and now I want the admiral Abkar coin as well! :)

    Thanks for the information, I appreciate it. I have a 1 ounce coin and it really is stunning in hand. I would just love to see it in proof, dinner plate size. Maybe I could wait and see what happens on the aftermarket
