The third coin in the series....and it looks pretty good.

The mintage is this time only 10000. The 2 before had a mintage of 15000.

I will pick some up as I grow into a collector of this series as well.

First I just bought in the hope to flip them but they look very pretty in my stash and the price did not increase this much so for now they are mine.

The coins look real beautiful. It would never occur to me to throw them away :D

·

my plan was more to sell them ;-)

I saw that last week from APMEX. I like it The republic of Chad series, and they tend to appreciate within 2 years... Did you notice... better than the Lunars... and it made me wonder why.

·

You know if it is an Apmex exclusive?

I thought the series was new actually. Is it a second one or so?

Nice coin. Not all low mintage coins appreciate, its more the demand and the mint they come from. Ive been collecting and flipping for many years. Sometimes its just luck, but if you nail a good one like I did with the lunar Rwanda rooster proofs, you can make a boat load.

·

they went well. But the mintage of the Rwanda coin was not well known before as well or?

I never really got big into proof coins so far as a wrong buy could be expensive. I got a bunch of the other series of the Rwanda boys...the one with the ship (dont remember the name) and will see how I do.

I think Perth Mint is pretty save for flipping but mostly I like the Queens Beasts as they are close to spot and so unite the best of both worlds

The Rwanda Proof Roosters were only $42 each at Release. I typically will take a chance on a first in a series if it’s from a good Mint. You are referring to the Nautical Ounce series.

Perth is a very good one as well.

You can’t go wrong with Queens Beast. It’s the best running series currently.

Yes exactly.

Was it just the first release which were this cheap? In Europe I could not find proofs this cheap even to release.

Did you got into the Black Flag from Perth Mint?

They were that cheap everywhere when they first came out. Two weeks later they wre $65 and up. I sold all of mine for over $120 a piece. First release is the only time you get that. Now the proof rekease is $80 vecause the series took off.

I was late so only bought one for me

I'm not a fan of that coin. It's the first time I've seen it and it just doesn't float my boat. I love the mirrored finish and the elephant looks well proportioned to the coin, but it's the design on the elephant that I don't like or get. The patterns on the elephant spoil the coin for me.

·

I really like it as it is very different to the other animals. good example of differnt tastes though

·
·

I'm not saying I wouldn't be grateful if Santa dropped one or two in my stocking this year. It definitely has a few things going for it. The 10k mintage when the previous 2 are 15k means there is already a market rush to get hold of it if you have the previous 2.

I was thinking the mintage got lowered because other ones did not sell this well.
