    Assuming they don't mint any more it might be a bargain. The 2003 is the other 300 mintage year and Ritchie on eBay Frenchburntpeanuts has one for sale at much more. I don't think it's going to rocket but it's likely to hold value and be sought after.

    Firstly, either option is a good but. It is true that the proof will have a higher mintage this year compared to the BU but it will have a low mintage than the equivalent coin last year and in absolute terms the mintages is still very low for a very beautiful semi numismatic coin.

    So far I have only bought the BU coin as the proof will be far easier to find going forward. The proof is probably more attractive but the BU is likely to be a semi key date and will hold it's value well going forward.

    2018 is likely to be a design change year for the Libertad.

    They were sold out like a month ago. I'm almost certain these are returns.

    The RM stuck 3750 in total (hence the stated/max mintage is 3750 vs 3500 shown in online offering), and submitted the first 250 for special release via distributor. They have been releasing a lot more coins with this process now.
     
    Of course we now have more labels than ever :s
     
    PCGS First Strike / NGC First Release / NGC Early Release = coins submitted within 30 days of release
     
    NGC One of First * Struck = actually what it states. NGC have been working with many world mints to get such releases
     
    PCGS doesn't have one of * struck labels yet, but they have special limited edition printed labels (like gold foil) and call it one of xx

    Just got this back from NGC, happy with the grade and it's a keeper! Hope the mintage doesn't go up too crazy by year end. Banco de Mexico sure loves giving us collectors some surprises

    Well I really can’t be bothered about the “one of the first 250 struck” designation actually... as long as it is a PF70 grade. To answer your question I do have the “one of first 250 struck” designation for my silver proof unicorn and apparently NGC just judge it based on the CoA...

    In 2015 with a semi key mintage of 500 sets Coins lasted almost 12 months at Apmex.

    600 is low and these will sell out quicker. I am a 2017 buyer and did not pick up a 2016 gold set due to the mintage

    Fairly high for the Libertad line, right?  Even after adding 500 coins to account for the five coin set, a total mintage of 600 coins for a globally-known and loved coin from a major Government Mint is very low.

    Whilst these mintages may seem low, historically, they are in fact fairly high. You need to add to each one of these numbers the 500 proof sets.

    Even the low mintage 1/20 has 20% higher mintage available than 2015.

    In 2016 There was a massive increase in mintage to 2100 of each coin. Even now plenty of these coins are available on the market for low prices. I suspect that they over-minted the 2016 proof Libertad and this year they feel they need to cut back a little.

    Providing the price is good, I would recommend buying the five coin gold set this year.

    Hush hush, you may have accidentally helped the grading companies to create a label called "one of the first dies ever used". Imagine the cost of obtaining such rarities!

    According to my understanding, the dies are anyway polished etc. after every few coins are struck, at least in the case of Proof coins. So does it really matter if you get one of the first 250 versus one of the last 250?
    Rhetorical question

    I bought the 1/10 oz BU thinking it might make the key, and given this info who knows... luckily my coin got graded 70 by NGC so I'll probably keep it, quite hard to find the 1/10 currently

    Got to agree with you there @shortstack68 - the 1/20th of any gold coin is really getting too small for me ! Sure - it will hold its value based on it being a gold Libertad ...but they are a pesky small size to see the detail on.

    So not one single member here thinks it odd that on the Mint's own website, it says that 361 1/10th bu coins were minted in July alone despite posts suggesting the mintage is 300 ? They even double down with a link to a graph.
