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.
