    That is true that it is helping the bullion pucks and if the U.S. Mint lowers the premium on the "P" pucks, then it will help those IMO.

    Yep. The wording at the US Mint should be clearer. IMO there is a difference between a bullion puck being sold out at the U.S. Mint (but can be found at an authorized dealer such as APMEX) vs. a bullion puck being sold out at an Authorized dealer (cannot find them anywhere except at a higher premium from a LCS that might have bought it from an authorized dealer).

    I am not sure why it shows max. mintage of 30,000 unless they upped the combined mintage from 65,000 (45,000 bullion + 20,000 "P") to 75,000 (45,000 bullion + 30,000 "P").

    Figuring out the U.S. Mint is one of the best ways to kill brain cells. The way that the U.S. Mint prices "P" pucks and how it distributes and reports bullion mintage is just how it is (whatever that is). That should clear up everything. :)

    I received my 2 Saratoga bullion pucks in the mail today. I am happy with them and I like the way they packaged them......

    Those look very nice, but you should just buy a tube of 10. Loose silver is clunky and a pain to try and store.

    I would have bought a 2nd Saratoga -P coin, if I had not remembered that these -P coins take up a lot of storage space...especially compared to a 10-coin roll of bullion coins!

    They were available for over two hours today....after I bought my two I could still add 100 to "my bag" so they had a decent amount available.

    There's still obviously demand as very few folks go back and check once they are gone, IMO. I would have never known to go back and check for these or the coin and chronicles sets if it wasn't for GIM.

    Interesting...maybe they waited around a while to just let xxx sell out by themselves but had to initiate the email blast to get them out the door.

    Me too. But it came at 5 a.m., and I didn't get up til 6:00. Doh! That, plus it went to my spam folder, and I didn't catch it in time.

    Enjoy the sale guys! :usflag:

    I think I'll pass on this one, as I'll probably be away from home when the coins arrive.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that the TR coin will be available at a good price next year...

    I felt lucky to be able to get the 1st 4 2015 bullion pucks at a LCS for much lower prices back when they came out. It is basically a game of "The early bird gets the worm". In this case, gets the lowest premium during presale.

    Did you all see all the 2010 bullion Apmex is trying to unload on ebay? Monster boxes of 100! MintDirect rolls! $220-245 a pop. LOL. Where were those when everyone was scrambling to get sets. They have ticked me off again, 5 years later on the very same sets.

    The Shawnee National Forest pucks went on pre-sale late this morning. I purchased double my normal allotment (2 mint tubes) at 88.10 per coin. Monster box pricing because I ordered the quantity level below the MB price point. I was told (this was a phone order) that premiums would go up once the pre-sale allotment was sold out. I could have saved 20 cents per Oz had I purchased from our forum sponsor. Next time I will check...

    Anything other than silver bullion gets spotted or tarnished in South Florida. Too much humidity. I have been thinking of adding gold, but it keeps going up.

    True, but someone will be making big money on premiums...either the Mint or the dealers.

    If the mintage numbers are really like the 2011 coins, then premiums like the 2015 coins would be overpriced.

    Confirmed. Disappointing to see them jump limits up so fast, but demand is definitely on the rise. Last I read was 55,000 bullion Shawnees sold thus far. Limit for 'P' Shawnees will be 30,000.
