    One needs to understand that the market for modern “collectible” coins and medals is totally contrived. Limitations restrictions rarity mintage are all fully contrived to obtain the highest possible ROI for the investor.

    Apmex is both a trader and a sponsor and makes a market in packaged collectibles.

    Britannia 2 Coin Set
    Libertad reverse proof set
    Swan Proof

    In the case of the swan proof this appears to have been made ONLY due to Apmex and the mint retained some coins for local sale.

    Why did this happen? We the collectors and stackers went weak at the knees for the “low” mintage bullion coin. The more we buy and the more we enthuse the more opportunities exist for Apmex, Royal Mint and others to capitalize and improve ROI.

    Many mints except USA perhaps that are governed by Congress will “contrive” to order. RM works with USA based IRA pension metals companies to “generate” limited collectibles like privy Britannias.

    I have always said be very careful as even at the issue price most items will be a financial loss. Hyped items like the RWANDA Lunars or the Swan Proof can be winners but hype dies down and fashion becomes unfashionable.

    What wins?

    Mistakes and Misjudgments where buyers are massively more interested than mints and sponsors predict.

    Relative rarities where something goes wrong or even contrived relative rarities.

    Classical coins that are rare and beautiful and have a 10+ years auction price growth.

    My conclusions

    Buy what you like and what you think others will like now and in the future.

    Buy based on value offered and the strength of the story. Swans have a strong story but do they offer value pricing? I would suggest buyers at current levels can’t unload at 20% more (to account for the cost of sales) so may take a loss.

    Beware one off commemorative editions that have no strong theme offering.

    I have a hunch that the George proofs will be a good investment over the next 15-20 years steadily rising in price as the Victoria and earlier proofs have done.

    I am swerving modern silver semi numismatic coins like the plague.....only exception I made was Phil’s retirement coin as it is an original design from a bygone age and one his son approved of I believe (unverified).

    I have to admit I bought 1 swan proof for myself, but I'm starting to move away from modern "rarities" and focus more on coins with real history.  To make amends for my swan purchase, I later bought a 20 Lire gold coin from the 19th century Feel better now!
