As I was trying to argue above, the Perth Mint benefits massively from the secondary market. The higher the prices on the secondary market, the more people will want to buy new coins in the hope of eventually making a large profit on them in the secondary market. Why do you think there is a buying frenzy every September and the Perth Mint servers are crashing. This is ONLY because of the prices of the Lunar coins on the secondary market, for NO OTHER reason. By ruining the secondary market, people will not buy new coins anymore. Why would they if there is no profit to be made.
