Generation 1 Optimus Prime and Megatron Silver Coin Set

Transformers-Optimus-Prime-Reverse-469x469

Here is something cool for the “high rollers” among us collectors – for the price of $232.91 US plus shipping, you can own a set of special Transformers edition silver coins from the New Zealand mint. The special NZ $2 coins are 1oz Silver each, and feature Optimus Prime and Megatron on the tails side, and HM Queen Elizabeth II on the heads side. They’re legal tender in New Zealand, but why would you want to spend these special pieces?

The page with the order details is here. According to the page, the coins have a limited edition mintage of 5,000 sets.

    I imagine this has probably been reported, but I tried searching with New Zealand Mint, transformers coins and it gave me about 100 hits each with nothing in the title suggesting this lol

    Anyways...if already reported, please lock/delete

    For $233.66 USD, you can set up a preorder to snag yourself 2 pretty snazy coins. One featuring Optimus Prime and the other Megatron (who else?).

    how does this make sense?? Why would the Mint of this country even make these.... I'd love to have a set but i'm not spending that. I'll wait for the infomercial and get them for the special introductory price of $19.99 plus S&h... Maybe i'll even get a special gift that i have to pay a separate processing fee for and S&H.

    Awesome!!! But, completely overpriced. At most this should sell for $30

    The spot price + markup for profit + insurance and shipping should make these for about $40-$45 each, -or- $80-$90 for the set of two, not $200+. Unless these are 10oz silver coins they won't find many buyers. I can go to APMEX.com and buy 3 or 4 coins for this price....

    ...the good news is that once the price deflates it may be a good chance to pick up some quality silver for less than spot (maybe)...

    Maybe it will come with a free football phone.

    Wicked cool. But way too overpriced. This set should be about 80 dollars. I don't know how they came up with over 200.
