I think we might be talking about two different FDC items.

I am talking about Canada 150 FDCs (available June 1st) Product # 414048131 - $16.00.

Here's the link

Might be a hot item. No images because they are under embargo until release....kind of interesting...I cut and pasted directly from CP (set of 10)

My side note was an unrelated update on Shatner signed stock level (asked for curiosity) while chatting with Philatelic dept.
Sorry about that. I thought you were talking about Star Trek First Day Covers.
Have a nice day!

Canada 150 - Official First Day Covers (Set of 10)
Product # 414048131 - $16.00

At the moment, their system shows Currently: 744 pcs .........no clue max. production #'s atm......... so they are looking into it. I'd anticipate a lot but if it's not a lot then worth considering.

I'm not holding my breath, but will post if/when they get back to me....

tried to get krokodil, but no luck
Austrian Mint's system was down most of time due to queue on No.3 GITD.

With max 3 pcs per customer and international shipping fee.

I gave up on this coin.

p.s. Still feel pretty luck that I bought 30pcs No.2 Tiger from Apmex for USD$12 each with free shipping.

Was lucky enough to get the new Niobium coin. Would have missed it for sure were it not for your message. Thanks! ;-)

Thought I'd share interesting info I just learned today.

NGC Census has long displayed silver Krugerrand SP 1oz "First Day of Production Label" (868 pcs) of those 600 were graded70; whereas 268 where graded 69

Anyway, I've been baffled by that label because I haven't seen it anywhere....,very mysterious

Turns out GovMint did that special label and got it signed by Tumi Tsehlo (Managing Director of SA Mint)...........drum roll...........issue price from GovMint for a SP70 signed by Tumi............$1495 USD to preferred customers................Tumi signed some 1oz gold krugs too $4995 USD

WOW......anyway all Tumi signed silver SP krugs sold long ago.......

Here's an eg. of his crazy signature if you've never seen it

There are coins..........and then there are coins..........lol

Interesting that Powercoin has sold out of both 2017 Star Trek coins so quickly. I wonder what their allocation was?

Limit of 2 for the Five Captains 2oz coin at GW. Maybe ST burnout doesn't apply to everyone.

I'm expecting the Borg coin price to drop, but am not so sure about the Five Captains coin now.

RCM has the Five captains "awaiting stock" for the last couple days.
Have a nice day!

I bought the signed Shatner. Call me a sucker, as I bought it last time to but the new one is from my favourite movie of all time. I'm going to box up the old one and put up the new one!

I would have bought the next generation one too if it was signed by sir patrick but that's too much for unsigned.

What a horrible job Canada Post does with marketing. As a past purchaser, they should have sent me an email sharing the news of the year 2 series, but I only knew about it from here!

Thanks!

are you referring to this one?
