    Arches and Sand dunes are 22,000.

    I don't think Fred will see 25,000

    What's with the Fort Moultrie puck not getting much love? It's seems to have all the right ingredients, South Carolina, military theme, decent design and a mintage of only 27,900 which currently ranks it #9 of #37 (including Fred) ..........yet I go to Provident's website and at $94.55 it's $5 cheaper than the 2016 Shawnee which has almost 4x the mintage.

    I think I'm gonna place an order.

    Very strange indeed. It does not make sense to me at all. It might be a "sleeper" bullion puck like Sand Dunes is (was?).

    Kinda nice to see cheap pucks out there again. They are not $90 yet, but the premium is pretty reasonable when they promote a price, as long as you are not filling holes to complete a collection.

    So if Effigy breaks 22,000 it goes from #3 to #5. Fred may fall out of the to #10 at this rate.

    Provident no longer has the Effigy listed for sale on their site. Looks like 3rd place may hold ....[fingers crossed]

    APMEX only has 7. I don't even know if I have 5 or 10 or 15 in my short term purchase bin. I'm done. I'll sell you one for $x over spot when I'm retired and need the money to pay property taxes.

    It appeared that they got some more of the effigy bullion pucks in stock. It currently shows they have 136 of them in stock.

    I don't think the #3 spot will hold for Effigy now, #5 may be it's best hope. Looks like Fred might be playing the race card and staking his claim to the #3 spot.

    It is not clear to me how long the bullion pucks will stay available. If they let it stretch out over the whole year then it doesn't seem like either one will stay below 22,000.

    Apmex started its presale of the Ozark Riverways bullion puck. Current check/wire price range between $97.55 and $102.55 depending on how many you buy. With that said, I will also state that the mintages for Effigy (21,500 so far) and Frederick (20,000 so far) are not final yet. We will see. Design-wise, I think that the upcoming Ozark puck will be the best puck design of 2017 imo.

    Agreed, the Ozark design should be popular. I'm guessing It'll be the high mintage of 2017 landing in the 35-45 range when it's all done.
    Now that Ozark is for sale hopefully this will slow the numbers on Effigy and Fred. These 2017 pucks may be our last ones to gamble on for awhile because the 2018's have such nice designs I could see six figure mintages on many of them.
