    I'll wait for the release of the 2013 Platinum Platypus 13 Jan 2013. Hopefully Plat will be trading at the lower. :)

    You registered only recently, on 2012-10-07. "SAVVY??!??!1!11!" is a bit of an inside joke.

    If I had $188k to spend on pt coins, pretty sure I would pass on the $12 shipping and just drive to Vegas myself :O

    That's a heavy price! 200,000 $? 3,333 $ a piece?

    Gosh, oh my lord... about double of spot a piece. Some Hollywood movie star might buy that "load"...

    Did I see it's from Las Vegas? :D Viva Las Vegas! :cool:

    Biff Tannen might be the guy selling them... back in the past platinum crashed down to roughly 850 $ an ounce, so if you bought around that time (several years ago), you would have gathered roughly 900 $ per ounce.

    But who could foretell the future?

    27.5 Oz of Pt for 200K what a rip off should be less than 50K.
    If it you take numismatic lunacy into account, it doesn't make 200K.
