I can't see why anyone would complain about giving paper with a $20 face value for silver with a $20 face value. You can use that coin to buy silver if you wanted.

Unfortunately, they only allow 3 per person - so, that's what I got.

I just bought three, they are giving free shipping and there are no taxes. I pay exactly $60CDN fiat and get $60CDN fiat back, except it is 39% backed by silver(.28oz of silver has 39% of the value $20 has). A no brainer if you ask me.

I was expecting a shipping fee, but there is no loss of funds at all buying these. It is hard to imagine that they are letting it go at face value.

I don't get why people are complaining about their profits, most of their $20 money is made of cheap cheap paper, this costs far more to produce. Do you think they should charge under $20 for a $20 face value coin?

This is absolutely brilliant and I applaud their fractionally based bullion moneys.

...if only the back wasn't so darned ugly

While the Queen looks just as fine as an 85 year old lady can look, I must say the design of the back is uninspired. The use of blank space gives it a sparse look.

These coins are only 0.28oz. So in reality, it is about $72 per ounce of silver.
thanks for pointing this out ....just ordered 3 of them

Elton John can't help the way he looks...
Squint... sorry... wrong old queen...
The double chin throws me off every time.

Yeah... My purchases from the mint are mostly gift items...
B'cause I'm too bloody cheap to submit to that extortion and keep 'em around to remind myself.
In the Great Fall and Precious Metal Supply evaporation bog of 2008...
When coinguys were starving to death with no bullion products and nobody was buying numi?..
The price of those baubles slid down into the stackable range and helped the locals feed their kids.
Just saying... when bullion tightens up... Keep visiting the local, and buy at least 1 thing every time.
Stops you from looking like a bullion only jerk and that is how you build a relationship.
You are only gonna pyss the money away somewhere else if you don't convert it to metal.
Of course... Me being perfect and all...I wouldn't... but you guys...headshake...

And we are not talking about the tools I bought in the winter of 2008...
I believe I picked up a touch of amnesia...cough... cough.
