  1. Gold Libertad 2017 mintages?

  2. Gold Libertad 2017 mintages?

    It will be interesting to see what the final mintage is. Either way, I got my annual 1/4 bu gold oz purchase and the 7 coin silver proof set (250 set mintage), so am not influenced one way or the other without spending too much or entering a speculative guessing game. The Mexican Mint has never released mintages in advance, other than sets as far as I am aware.

    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.

    Anyone fancy trying to figure out these two ? http://www.banxico.org.mx/SieInternet/consultarDirectorioInternetAction.do?sector=11&accion=consultarCuadro&idCuadro=CM12&locale=en http://www.banxico.org.mx/SieInternet/consultarDirectorioInternetAction.do?sector=11&accion=consultarCuadro&idCuadro=CM11&locale=en

    I would send them back and keep going. Send ever demanding emails and start to suggest you will contact their superiors at The Mint if this poor service continues. There is a list of hierarchy on the Mint website. Keep going. Make them concede, not you, otherwise nothing will ever change. Persistent determination. Or, get a refund on two and keep going with one but dont give in.

    Yep, same here. Cannot participate
  7. I go to my lcs and get them to send off. It takes 3-4 months for them to come back and I have 8 that I sourced locally in the system at the moment, as well as one with numistacker (as i am not based in the uk, it is so helpful to be able to send uk bought products to numistacker if I fancy getting them graded).

    For those serious libertad collectors, it is well know that mintages vary wildly throughout the years and are never announced in advance. That has been the joy of these coins but now it seems this mint has been experiencing a bit more love in the last couple of years. The Mexican Mint has always done it this way and as I said, they have never changed their system of unpredictability. Newbies and speculators will be confused by this.

    Nicely. Please let it be my turn next
  10. Gold Libertad 2017 mintages?

    Snuck in last weekend under the radar and snagged a 1/4 oz bu. Also bought a 2017 7 coin silver proof set (250 set mintage) to go with the previous years which was ordered and paid for months and months ago but is only just about to start shipping. Also got the very rare 1982/3 proof set with the 1oz proof a year or so ago for a very reasonable $500 or so. Strange beast, Libertad collecting. http://donbailey-mexico.com/libertad_mintages.shtml
  11. Lucky fellas, I should have joined.
  12. That is good discipline. Well done. We are about to rent out our place as my family needs a slightly bigger place for the next few years and we have found a place to rent in the nearby area for almost the same amount as what we will be getting in rent from our place. Owning your own property gives you much more flexibility. It also frees up the pennies to handle any unforeseen things that life throws at everyone sometimes. Good luck with the coming year and do update
