    Antonello:
    thanks a lot for your comments about our coin and thank you Mik for your great article.

    We have real images on our website and in our instagram account (powercoin.it) and also the image used to compose the cover of this article is of the actual coin.

    I can confirm thay the coin is made with a single die and the three levels (base, main puzzle and pieces on top) has been a big challenge, but the final result is stunning, all edges are sharp and precise.

    I can provide also a couple of facts:

    1) the surface of the pieces is not flat like a real puzzle but reproduces with tiny reliefs the brush strokes. In pictures is a bit difficult to appreciate.

    2) if you virtually take the pieces not in place, they perfectly match the shape and the design to complete the puzzle.

    Thanks everybody for appreciating this coin so much!

    Hi Bob,

    This is absolutely the best-selling coin we ever had in our history! As of today the request from dealers is over 6500 pieces, we have been contacted by distributors from any part of the world. All this in less than 48 hours.

    Here’s the actual coin...it actually has brush stokes. Hard to appreciate in pics. If this wins the award for most innovative, then expect a repeat of the Venus coin.

    Hopefully some of you got on the wagon at 400.00...it’s now approaching 800.00 in a few days...and they’re almost sold out.

    Even being a rather open-minded stacker I do not understand all the hype around this coin...

    You should shut up and buy buy buy....as Cramer says. Lol. Who understands the fickleness of man. But if you bought at 450.00, it’s now a grand or more. Lol.

    :eek:
    Yes, if I doubt the hype I look like a Dodo.:eek:
    But I didn't buy a 3DO :D
    Think very few would understand my humor though :oops:

    If I bought at 450 USD I need to find someone to buy it for... for example 700 USD.
    Would you buy some for 650 at least?)))

    In that comment I just tried to prove to myself if there is a second market for such coins.

    Just my opinion, but I don't think this is a "Collector" coin: it is a "Flipper" coin. PowerCoin had success with the previous series so are trying a slightly different approach this time, which just makes it look like a gimmick.

    I’m collecting AND flipping this series. I love the first series (have all 3) and I’ll collect this series too. But have a few extra to flip. I think this is the real deal. It’s loved all over the world. The insights I received from the sponsor is 6500 were wanted but only 499 minted. I doubt all 6500 were flippers. Surely at least 1000 were collectors...but who knows. Time will tell. This one rocketed from 450.00 US to nearly a grand with hefty sales within a few days. I’m looking forward to seeing it. :/)

    The prices still seem high, so we'll see. The short-term looks good at least, but I'm not so sure about the long-term. I skipped this and the previous series as I wasn't that hot on them. But the prices for the puzzle were just crazy, so I wasn't going anywhere near it :).
