Coin #1 Rooster was very successful last year re: appreciation.................of course, being Coin #1 of a series always helps ;)

very nice coins considering the manufacturer is Mayer Mint GMBH (Germany)

Well, to clarify, it was the proof version of the rooster coin that did really well. Example here btw Mintage:1k

The BU version still seems readily available for around $34 CAD. Example here

Worth keeping an eye out for Mintage info...since they stop making previous coin once new coin releases to keep mintages low.

As for the design, my favourite designs are those that appreciate ;)

These blister cards also might be worth watching/considering .....you’ll recall Justsilver brought this coin to our attention a while back

https://www.emk.com/en-us/current-issue ... bniu201772

Unsigned version much cheaper but still only 500 produced

I bought quite a few 1oz Czech Lion Silver Coin. Unfortunately, milk spot already developed on some of this coin.

Quite disappointing.

I have a much less expensive Lion coin that has no milk spots and I am really happy with it. It is this one Lion Coin. It is a coin, not a round, and the design is nice. It has radial lines like the RCM maples do. It is also first in the series, and as you mentioned earlier, the first in the series generally does well. I dont care if the price of this coin goes up. I like the coin.

Thanks for the update, justsilver. Glad I hesitated to buy this one. Nice coin, but I hate milkspots.

SGB has flash sale on 1986 1oz Gold Panda for $300 off selling price.

SGB USA is USD$300 off but SGB Canada is CAD$300 off, big difference.

Any decent deal on gold bullion today?

What is this Flex Sealed Thermatron 1 oz Maple Leaf gold coin? Something the RCM issued?
