That's expensive! I'm surprised. Was going to buy, but will pass at that price.
Swan Silver Coin, mintage 25,000, sold at $24, is much better than Spider Silver Coin, mintage 50,000, Selling at $ 30

Earlier today I saw the gold Darth Vader. Now I saw the silver. They are the nicest new design coins I have seen this year. The way they use the mate and shiny finish to create that Darth Vader image and impression is awesome. If anyone here has seen it, I would really like to know your thoughts.

This video shows the Darth Vader coin quite well. Looks good. Nice contrast.

Got a few Vaders myself and they're nicer than expected. As far as I'm concerned, it coulda looked like @$$ and I woulda still bought 'em because Vader. The online pics of the coins don't do it justice because the shinyness of Vader on a dull background really works.

I agree with the previous posters, especially Thalo. {And} Thalo's advice is spot on.

For all the hardcore collectors out there Goldstocklive.com has a bunch of nice vintage Engelhard and JM for sale.

Be warned, very high premiums but nonetheless a very nice collection. Too bad they only sell in bulk.

https://goldstocklive.com/catalogsearch ... =engelhard

Edit: The Engelhard 10oz Scotiabanks have a <250 mintage, heres the chance to get 1/5 of the world stock for a hefty $38/ounce.

Go to Post Image and upload the photo. Once uploaded click on the little button beside the direct link. When you are posting on RFD, click the picture icon above the text box and paste into the box that pops up. You should be good to go.
