    Was that just a bog standard 5 oz coin, or trendy coloured with flashing display box etc?

    Don't suppose you know the mintage on the 5 oz normal coins?

    Thanks for any info.

    That's nuts - they're coming back into production soon with unlimited mintage.

    Saw someone flogging them on eBay recently calling bullion 5oz coins proofs when they're not.

    I doubt a real collector/numismatist bought your coin, as they do a lot of research and go after rare coins mostly. Probably somebody new to coins and precious metals in general.

    Hi guys,

    I think that was me, where do you go to check the price of silver? Isn't it at $180 or something? Someone said to the moon?

    Sold it to a Gold miner with lots of money and Beer is his number one priority in life, he dabbles in PMs and when he saw it offered me the money, told him i only paid $190, he said he was not interested in the details. He only buys coins.

    He lives in Melbourne but works in the territory, he lost a $1200 set of headphones, a new I-phone 4 and a new Ipad 2 when a Dingo took his lunch bag at work.
