    I don't like the idea of paying high premiums for "special" coins, and I typically hate colored coins. That's why this coin caught me by surprise, I actually want it. Not sure I want it enough to place an order, but this is definitely the first "fancy coin" I have ever been the slightest bit interested in. FYI - The shamrock is real, not painted. Also, only 2,015 of them made. Whats your opinion?

    I don't like the color on the clover, but think the other side looks very nice. It's kinda cool to have a "lucky" coin. Lately, I need some luck.

    That's one fine looking horse.

    As to low mintage coloured coins, as buyers, we think that low mintage may result in increased profits down the line. However, the manufactures aren't prepared to risk over investing in these coins and don't in fact limit the mintage, but limit their exposure to low sales.

    Very few coloured coins appear to be sold out.

    Yes I like it as well, I have the 2013 ounce of luck and it is the only coloured coin I decided to keep.

    Its not a dumb question. One is a proof coin, the other is not. RM had chosen to have a different design for the two. Man I want this coin.
