I recently picked up one of those 1 oz silver, 1/20 gold, 1/20 plat Perth Mint sets. You know the ones, comes in an awful green box that looks like someone has glued 1mm of leather to a pool toy, and stuck it around a box with some cheap miniature golfing green inside for the coins to sit in. Truly awful. To top if off, if I touch the box it disintegrates in my hand, leaving my fingers actually green and tearing at the leather covering. Eventually I'll sell the set. Maybe today, maybe fifty-seven years from now, but whenever that is I wonder if the box is a help or a hindrance to me? It shows it's a complete set, but it's so god damned awful I feel like if I posted it out on a hot summers day you'd have the coins swimming in a green leather soup by the time it arrived. If I throw the box away, I'll potentially be able sell the coins a la carte. Gold might be worth more one day versus the next, and platinum the reverse, and so on. I can see the benefits to this. But I cannot shake the feeling that ditching the box will do me harm, even if being near the box makes me feel like I'm going to catch something off it. How would you approach this?
