    Yeah I know MCCs are going strong... just thinking about how they deliberately lowered the pricing estimates (sometimes below spot) so they could then turn around and say "see we had a price 15x of what we guessed!".

    Being exposed to all the Perth Mint "marketing" has made me cynical :p

    Hahaah... yeah, I know what you mean :)

    I'm sure the owner of the coin was pleasantly surprised (or not) that their coin sold so far above the estimate :)
