    well on another note, I will try and throw JamesG some business whenever I can. Great of him to offer at the price he did, clearly not in it to screw everyone down to the last cent.

    I think its another case of either looking for a quick flip while the hype is up, or holding for 10+ years and hoping it develops in to a desired release in the long term. I don't think prices will be very high this time next year.

    There are still 65 rolls available, and I can still add them. Must be an issue at your end....?

    I was being told...at the first launch in Melb...there was 5000 roll. Whether the re roll again for the Sydney event...i have no idea.

    At the other forum..there someone asking RAM for clarification...but no definitive answer.

    Cheapest now is $55/roll. I would say its going downhill from
    Here...untill the primary market is dried up...and secondary market in play.

    Did the dealers buy these at face value of $20?

    Are you new here?!

    Surely you must be aware that you only make a loss if you sell it!?

    That's what I tell myself as I look at my stack... :p

    But I am happy with the ones I bought from James, $29 seems to have been the best buy so far, I have sold one roll to a friend of mine but I only got $29 for it!

    Dealers surely paid face value, but they have to make a proft, so I think the 30-40 price range was right in that regard. The RAM really needs to not make more of these or they risk people being put off far too much on future releases, or on coin collecting in general IMO.

    I have heard that the Mint used the 2014 mint rolls as a lure to get dealers to attend their conference and that is how the dealers ended up getting them. Used as a bait to encourage attendance at the Mint's meeting.

    What I'd like to know is "How many 'mobs of roo's' has been minted in general"?

    :)
