Rwanda Lunar Dog silver proof or gold ?

Recommended Posts

The title says all... looking at Rooster prices don't you think that the silver proof is a better deal for flipping than the BU gold (compared to original prices Silver  proof x 3,6 times (around 250€) and gold around 2,20 times around 3500€ if I am correct) ? maybe also easier to sell the silver proof than the Gold BU ? 

What do you think of the Lunar Dog with a mintage climbing to 188, compared to the same mintage for the silver proof (seems to stay at 1000 coins) 

Thank you for your advices and experience

If we all knew this we would be millionaires ;)

I would imagine that the dog will still be popular but as to the huge premiums we have seen on the Rooster - probably not as much but likely still a decent increase if you managed to get one at issue price.

I have my budget defined for the Rwanda Lunar Dog. I think this complete line will be a total winner. Looking at the Rwanda Lunar Rooster prices and given the fact that the mintage of the Dog will not be more, i don't see any risk and only potential for this coin. For me the silver coins are easier to swap and more affordable for my budget ;)

Unfortunately, I can't give the information as I forgot  the seller's name who opened presales on the Rwanda Dog. If I remenber correctly, it 's a German seller and the Gold BU Dog was on presale at 1750€, with a mintage indicated at 188 coins, I don't remember the  presale price for the  silver proof but the indicated mintage  was 1000 coins.

Maybe someone on the forum will have the information

Don't be surprised if the silver proof goes  up in mintage to some number that includes the lucky number 8. Maybe 1888 ? Or a worst case scenario 8888.

I can't imagine the mint  to shoot itself  in the foot with  such a politic. Customers would feel betrayed and it would kill instantly  their credibility and the series (Lunar, Nautical, and those to come)

On the contrary I think they are smart enough to go in the right direction

Have milk spots affected anyone's Rwanda proof as of yet - I didn't and won't be buying any Rwanda proofs having been caught before with there issues.

I have two proof elephants and a zebra all three show milk spotting and one of the Elle's is a shocker - 30% of the front covered in milk - maybe I am unlucky or just not storing these correctly but it's put me off proofs for good.

Hope you all have better luck than me.

So they almost doubled the number of gold bu's from 100 to 188 so the correct numberer the silver proofs will be close to double.  1888 sounds about right.

I think we will not have to wait long anymore to find out. I guess in the coming or the week after the new coin will be introduced?

Found the seller in Germany (but no pictures :mellow:)

https://www.kettner-edelmetalle.de/index.php?fc=module&module=gc_epoq&controller=Search#/q/rwanda

1750€ the gold BU and 95€ the silver proof

Goldsiver seems to confirm these mintages, at least for the gold BU

A forum member advised already that the dealer might not get the amount of coins he is selling. If you want to part with your money on the risk that the dealer cannot fulfill your order...

Kettner is going to be getting a slapped wrist for his early pre sale and the grapevine has been whispering that they might cut the amount they give him.

I would wait as he is about €250 expensive.

Those coins aren't made by the same people, the Lunar series is done by someone else. I've not had any issues with the Lunar proofs
