Wow, that's one of the most beautiful coins i've seen.

Why can't Canada do something like this? Instead we have a boring leaf that usually have milk spots.

RCM is too big to focus on craftsmanship on " bullion " coin.

US dealer Gainsville soldout on this coin.

HK dealer, LPM, is currently selling this coin but with unfriendly shipping fee to Canada.

Just browsed through Apmex and found this deal, bargain, price error

250pcs Darth Vader Silver Coin for USD$864

= USD$3.46 per 1oz Silver Coin.

How many RFD'ers think Apmex will honor this price?

I even asked Apmex Online Chat.

Apmex's rep confirmed webpage's price is correct.

lol.

No way they honour that - looks like the page you ordered from is gone already

I know.

I do not think Apmex will honor 3 boxes ( 250 pcs each box for total 750pcs ) of Darth Vader for UsD$3.46 per coin.

I took them all.

lol.

p.s. awaiting Apmex's response.

Your mistake was asking them and waiting for a response. You would have been better off ordering 1 box and saying nothing if you wanted a chance to get it.

Be frankly, Apmex will lose USD$4000+ on each box because of price error.

Does it make different for losing USD$4,000 or USD$12,000

All big $$ to dealers.

Of course I will be extremely happy if Apmex honors this order. If not, I am just having fun and have more talk on RFD forum. It is quiet here lately.

lol.

Pretty sure most dealers have a fine print protecting them against price errors on the website.

Just phoned Apmex regarding this order.

Apmex had no idea about price error when I called in.

Even after I mentioned sold price of USD$864 on 250pcs 1oz Silver Coin, each coin was only sold for USD$3.46.

Apmex's rep still did not know if it was an price error or not.

lol.

Anyway, Apmex will contact me tomorrow about this order. ( I told her I have chat transcripts that Apmex rep told me this was not price error and confirmed USD$864 was correct. )

It's not the dollar loss I was pointing out.

It's like when people post a price error in Hot Deals and someone orders 20 and then calls about their order. Obviously that will get cancelled 100%. A single price error order might fly under the radar.
