    Was the frosted ram die ever sold to another dealer?

    They are sitting at GoldStackers display case.

    Ainslie have their own thing...if that what you are asking.

    It is. I don't often wonder into Ainslie's website so wasn't aware of it. It's exactly the same design at least on the Ram's head side. Think they would have gone with something a little more original.

    No, it is a separate die. Bit of a mixup during the design stage. Originally a set of XAG rounds based on Australian premedical coin designs was proposed, the concept was inadvertently offered to another dealer. Just one of those things.

    The die has been cut. Looks pretty nice. Can't wait to see the first real one.

    Pretty sure the last auction I did was for 2 of them and bidding ended at $150 ($75 each).

    Woooow, nice to see that prices increased so much for Rams. If financial situation would be better for me at that time I would be now owner of at least 1 or 2 more.

    They are probably only coins (rounds) I have which price actually increased.:)

    Next step: to use XAGs instead of fiat currencies. ;)
