    I like the delorean the best too, would definitely be one to go for if mintage was bit less. The best comparison might be the doctor who which if I remember correctly had a mintage of 10000.

    Doctor Who could be a good comparison. On the other hand, I'd argue that it is a lot better known/loved series than Back to the Future. I've heard far more people talk about Doctor Who than Back to the Future. Perhaps Lord of the Rings and/or the Hobbit? However, both trilogies are substantially more recent.

    I'll admit upfront, that I could very easily be wrong on all this. However, I just find a lot of the interest in Back to the Future day feels manufactured to me. It's an easy to target, single day event.

    This might have been asked before but are these one off coins or will there be a series?

    Yeah but the hover board is limited to 1 per a customer hence why I bought the second set from gold stackers

    Load up on the hoverboards, compares to the 2010 melbourne cup coins which sold out in 4 days (mintage of 5000). These have sold out in one. Same issue price.

    Get in on it!!!!

    I agree super fast sell out 1 day is not good, longer term 4 days or there abouts is better :)

    The Hoverboard is pad printed, just like every other Perth Mint coloured coin - no stickers :rolleyes:

    Just putting it out there again - been a long time since a non-Lunar release crashed the Perth Mint website and sold the quantity that they did on launch day.

    Pardon my ignorance is that a good thing or bad thing?

    Don't worry just gave it a thought and I figured pad is better than sticker?

    Pad printing is the direct permanent application of inks to the metal surface, one colour at a time. Permanently coloured as long as you don't try to clean them with paint stripper.

    Rather cool to watch in person. There's probably a promotional video somewhere on the Perth Mint YouTube channel from a few years ago showing it.

    So the popularity winner seems to be the Hover Board?
    I know the mintage is a lot lower, and hence lower allocation to each dealer, but it seems to relatively the more popular one?

    Went to Perth Bullion and saw the car listed at AUD $122.73. Did the conversion and saw that it was USD $88 and change and figured it was a sign so picked one up.

    I'm guessing the Hoverboards are sold out everywhere? I had one in my cart, but it disappeared when I went to the checkout, someone must have beaten me by only minutes.
