Re: Krugerrand now officially available in silver and platinum

Just curious, when they said mintage of 1 million, does it refer to max mintage possible? I highly doubt all 1 million will be fully sold.

If you had to move 1 million ounces at 2.5x spot, what would you say?? lol


I've read that apparently Apmex will also be getting some in January.

How many times now have we seen "dealer exclusives" end up with all the other dealers after the "exclusivity" shelf life expires LOL

Bummer on the BU pricing, and the dealer being MCM as these will be cherry-picked to death and thousands will find themselves entombed in plastic with 'grades' by the TPGers. 

Anyone seen pricing on the proof versions?

Re: Krugerrand now officially available in silver and platinum

I do know the GM at MCM.  And I'll be able to get this stuff at a steep discount for those interested.  Let's see what the prices are, and then for those who would like to buy, we can do a group buy.  And hopefully he'll be kind enough to just ship direct fromt their facility.  Anyway, just food for thought.

Re: Krugerrand now officially available in silver and platinum

Yeah, I would stay away from buying the ungraded ones from MCM. Best would be to try group buying from the mint direct to get good coins.

Oh, there's no mintmark on the normal bullion ones?

Looks even better than I expected, did you order direct from SA Mint, or if not, please reveal your source.

Re: Krugerrand now officially available in silver and platinum

Hmm, guess that's from the secondary market? Wonder if it's still possible to order direct from the mint.

We have the Govmint holiday brochure as well, it was apparently printed/published before the SA mint delayed and recalled the anniv krugerrands, so it incorrectly shows the coins as available because it was a December publication meant to be mailed out right as the anniv krugerrands went on sale I'm guessing.  @ $40 each I can find SOOOO MANY other coins I'd want to pick up for around that price or cheaper.  Patience is indeed a virtue, and I plan to exercise it with EXTREME PREJUDICE when it comes to these anniv krugerrands.

Re: Krugerrand now officially available in silver and platinum

Prices are ridiculous. Never imagined they'd reach these levels. Beyond belief that they've actually debuted at them...

Re: Krugerrand now officially available in silver and platinum

It is rather funny to read about a limited mintage of 1 000 000 coins of silver Krugerrands. Think they will fire soon someone in South African Mint marketing department.
The proof fractional gold coins are very pricey too (((
Of couse maybe I'm just not so rich as need to be ((((
