Thanks LD, for taking the time to write what I was too lazy to do.

Sure. I'll also be happy to serve you a bottle of Baby Duck when you ask for Dom Perignon next time you're in.

I guess the "For coin collectors ..." which I used to start the OP should have been in BOLD RED letters and announced with a fog horn?? Smiling Face With Open Mouth
dude, if people dont like your deal dont take it personal. And you gave a terrible analogy - the only main difference is mintage in our case. Its the exact same material - so try to sell me a limited bottle design Dom for 275 or ill take the regular one for 100 please.

These limited coin deals are never popular in hot deals, even the 20/20's get flak and at least you get cash value ... better off posting it in the numis thread.

Dude, I don't take it personally -- just pointing out the illogic people are spouting. You don't like the champagne analogy, substitute apples and oranges - saying 'A' is overpriced because product 'B' with a completely different function is cheaper makes no sense whatsoever. As LD said above, 40% is a hot deal *for those interested* -- no need to threadcrap because *you* are not interested.

I agree with the others. You can get 1oz silver maple leaf coins on ebay for $35 although they are a higher mintage. Spending 70 on a coin is not really worth it when the metal value is $22.

Just making people aware that they're not going to get rich buying these things. You could end up being like that guy at the garage sale in 1992 trying to sell his hundreds of Olympic silver coins for pennies on the face value (had he waited he could have gotten face value at least because of the silver content).

Any discount off numismatic coins are always good to know. Yes, those that are into turning a profit should probably stay away from collector's coins and stick to your bullion.

I wish I got those Star Wars coins at a discount! There's more than just the cougar on sale. Here's the link to the entire sale:

LOL, this is a tough crowd. 2 downvotes for "Not a good price" but not a peep on where you can get it for anywhere near this price, let alone cheaper. (Sure, LD above pointed out the ebay sale, but nothing is on offer now.)

silver is $17 per ounce, no deal here
Wrong on two counts. Silver is US$17/oz or C$21/oz. And these are collector coins, and they carry collector value, not bullion value.

Buy if you want it.

That's a good point, but does not apply unless you can explain how the function of this coin is different from the others posted. It's certainly not obvious to me. 40% off something is usually hot, but not always. Take Canadian Tire, for example!
