    Are you the owner of the die's GP? Will the die's be destroyed? Or could we have other possible runs of these? Is there going to be a limited total mintage on each type that is still in production?

    Gold Stackers is the owner of the dies, and they are at the Gold Stackers office on display, but without the matching collars they are useless. Permanent static display at the office along with one round to match each die. No intention of destroying or defacing them, because they are works of art in themselves. It's possible the XAG side dies might get used again one day with a new design, but the Silver Stackers penny and shilling dies are permanently retired.

    Wow. Didn't realise the double mirrors were only a mintage of 12.
    Maybe in 50 years it will be like the 1967 swan/goose coin.
    Back into the safe deposit this one goes.

    Need clarification here GP.

    Was the mintage of the double-frosted Ram 200 or 300?

    What you said in the above post doesn't agree with what you said here... http://forums.silverstackers.com/message-474707.html#p474707

    Will need to ferret out the purchase orders which will be definitive.

    Thread updated with definitive mintages. ALL of the Penny/Shilling rounds are closed mintages, as is the 2013 Buffalo.

    Here's the Penny/Shilling/XAG dies on display at the Gold Stackers office. They're on the bottom shelf of our display cabinet.

    Announcements on 2014 XAG rounds will be made in October.

    Does anyone outside of GP and CK have a completed set?

    I don't have a double mirror ram but do have both types of the mirror/frosted.

    Willing to negotiate a swap with anyone who has more than 1 double mirror ram to trade the coin/s they are missing so that both them and myself can complete the set.

    Can make up the difference in coins, fiat, or even free gold detecting outings including lessons and free IR. :D

    Disappointed that a Buffalo graces the 2014 XAG SilverStackers round again :rolleyes:
    Unique Aussie icons like the Lyrebird should grace them Ben wink... wink .. Ill save the artwork for you for the 2015 XAG's :p

    Personally I'm not a fan of Australian designs on overseas manufactured bullion. If we can get them made in Australia at an acceptable price, we will release more Australian designs.

    We're not going to release US minted bullion masquerading as Australian produced rounds.

    They were minted in Australia. The Buffalo was the first US produced round in the series - so we introduced a traditional US design (which also helped with market acceptance).

    Hmmmm....

    Will do some digging. There may be 5 spares. Failing that, I have some SGB coins in mint condition that use the exact same capsule.

    The capsule was originally designed to be for a 50gram coin, and retrofitted for the one ounce size. Thats why the coin sits to one side of the capsule.

    I've put mine XAG coins in Airtites with foam. Rock solid protection for nice coins.^^

    In case you have some left I'm also interested in one or two. It seems that Norfed 2oz Piedfort is of exact size. :)
