Anybody planning on picking one of these up?

With Silver at almost $40/ounce and a 1 carat saphire going for about the same plus a mintage of 25,000 I would say it is actually quite a good value.

I don't believe it's a real sapphire, but but I could be wrong. I think it's just a crystal that is sapphire colored!

I'm sure with the low mintage, these will hold their value or appreciate, but 100 bucks for an ounce is a bit too high for me at the moment!

I liked it enough to order one - usually RCM coins with a Savorsky crystal do very well...

Not to knock your coin. But just so you dont get your hopes up to high on the Swarovski crystal. Tho the are nice looking. Swarovski crystal is cut and polished Glass. From the Swarovski glass co in the Czech Republic.

The coin looks like Prince Charles and some gal. The likenesses aren't very good. Unfortunately I am passing on this.:(
