    The Hovers have been hoovered everywhere! Can sense another God's of Olympus Zeus coin scenario with these.

    Thanks for the reply. can you give me some measurement? The reason I am asking is I want to do a rough estimate how much shipping cost when I sell it on Ebay :lol:

    thanks for the reply. I guess that is the shipping cost for 1 coin.

    Just to respond to that in case it results in misconceptions, there are no batteries in the hoverboard packaging - it is magnetic.

    I want to get myself one of these coins but it seems that everyone has sold out, I noticed that most stores are saying that they will be back in stock in November.

    Does this mean they will be a re-issue or that they are getting more stock back in?

    The hover board reminds me of another well packaged Tuvalu release, The DDS Red-back Spider. For what ever reason it was everyone just wanted that particular one and the premiums held. If it gains that much popularity then I guess those that miss out can either bid up the price or wait for the Chinese copies to come out.

    I can't get over the hype on these coins. The movies were good... How many people out there are Delorian or Back to the future fans ? Not like Back to future is like Star wars or being a Trekkie fan. Enjoy your coins for those who bought them.

    Cheers.....

    Nope, mintage figure is final. So not unless they didn't already allocate the existing mintage, which I doubt.

    I have a hoverboard for sale to capitalize on the hype. No one bought it yet! Two available! haha... if it goes to the way of the 2 oz Mouse, I will feel sad giving a bit of upside, but i think i'm in the middle.

    Hoverboard is still available from Perth Bullion... if you buy their Back to the Future set for $1084 including GST. They also still have the car for $135.

    I'm going to come clean now and admit that against my better judgement I ended up buying 1 each of the hoverboard and the car after I made my post stating that they will most likely be selling below issue price within a year. I'm hoping that most of the prognosticators here are right....
