    I’m in. I like the design and will get one from each mint. Don’t know the RM mintage yet but I doubt it’s anywhere near the 75,000 we have.

    I would prefer gold, but I’m not that committed to this issue. Plenty of opportunities to blow money in the next 11 months

    I will pass on this. $89.00 for a medal with one ounce of silver is well over priced.

    How about $3,020 for the same design, in a 1 oz gold coin?

    I just bought a silver one from the Royal Mint for half the price. They are limited to 260,500 worldwide. The US mint is getting 75,000 and some fancy packaging I am sure. They have it for $30.54 each plus shipping and tax. Was half the price. They also have 1oz, 2oz proofs and smaller fraction gold

    To be fair, the Mint version is a proof and the Royal Mint version is bullion, so it's not really apples to apples. You can also buy a bullion ASE for around the same price as what you just bought from the Royal Mint, even though proof ASEs go for around the same price as the proof version of this coin.

    True indeed. I just got the proof too

    Got the silver medal from the USM and the 2 oz. proof silver coin from the Royal Mint. I like the designs.

    The Royal Mint 1 oz proof version of this medal sells at around 130 USD, so apples to apples the USM is a better value. Also shipping is around 15 USD vs free or 5.95 for USM.

    Being in the U.S., you will get the U.K. coin for less than the list price because you won't be paying the VAT.

    That is not accurate! The Royal Mint silver version is a coin in "Proof" and "Bullion".
    However, the US Mint is "medal" only for the silver and not a coin.
    So not apples to apples.

    With dollar conversion and less VAT the UK version comes out to $109 for a one oz proof

    Also not apples to apples because it's a 75K mintage vs. 12,300. FWIW, the UK versions are selling out, at comparable pricing, albeit with much lower mintages. This is definitely not a unpopular product.

    The UK silver proof 2 oz. and 5 oz. coins are sold out.

    The US medal will be a little larger than the UK coin (1 oz versions) US diameter: 1.598 inches/ 40.60 mm UK Diameter: 1.52 inches/38.61 mm ...
    Plus the US reverse is more dynamic with a new design, not just the King.

    I almost grabbed a 2 oz coin, maybe if it were ultra high relief I would've....just looked thicker to me.

  • JeffMJeffM Posts: 577 ✭✭✭✭

    Received my 2 oz. silver UK coin today. A record 3 days transit from the UK to the US! Coin is magnificent and is packed in a nice box. Well done, UK!!
