The coin presents wonderful and detailed Ultra High Reliefs, has a selective Gold plating, has an Antique Finish and comes in a wooden case, along with the Certificate of Authenticity. Limited mintage of only 500 pieces worldwide!

    lol Thanks man.

    I saw the string of new releases coming from them this morning: Sea Battles, Legendary Lands, and Chinese Heroes. They should start selling in the dairy isle at this point. Nothing really that interesting from a design perspective IMO, they seem to be playing the same hand they have been for several years (I see the same flaws from previous releases growing with each new release). But as we discussed, the prices are starting lower.

    Best of luck to those looking to invest (or more accurately flip), but I think the play to the Chinese Heroes is probably the only thing that will end up doing anything (or so the Mint hopes).

    Yeah, agreed! The Chinese Heroes is the only that will do well, IMHO. First in the series, nice details, good concept (Although it follows the Warriors closely - very successful)...where they fail is with their marketing! They’re terrible! But they really are pumping these things like a bubble gum machine. :eek:

    Here's a couple more on the way, very much in the same vein and following the now classic Poland Mint formula. To the mints credit tho... all of these coins + others already mentioned in this thread; are 3rd party commissions, they're not direct mint projects.

    First up and due in April. 2020 Niue 2 Ounce Four Heavenly Kings Duowentian High Relief Gold Gilded Antique Finish Silver Coin
