    Hi from blindguy. First, I am legally blind. I lost 95 % of my vision to a stroke in my eyes 6 years ago so please excuse my typing. I am 60 years old and have been a coin collector and stacker for 53 years. I still buy silver and gold with the help from some amazing  machines that make life easier. I look forward to trying to get involved with to forum. thank you, from blindguy (Jim)

    spanit got a reaction from ScroogeMcDuck in Confused about monster boxes   
    I ever experienced buying a box of 100 perthmint coins. Like this case, singles or tube of 20 are priced lower than a full box of 100. I just ordered the cheapest and add comment asking the coins sent in the mint box. Then I got a full mint box of 100 coins at cheapest price.

    I believe that the cost of mining it will increase because of wages, fuel, machinery costs will increase.  Also digging deeper may increase costs.
    The costs will be passed on to silver price as inflation.

    Even if there is an abundance of silver it still has to be mined, given the mergers of a couple of the majors recently and the demise of a couple of the minors combined with the tendancy in todays cheap money climate to keep shareholders happy through stock buybacks rather than actually improving performance this gives me hope.
    As does the lack of exploration, apparently it takes 10 years from discovery to producing the first ounce on average and the absolute quickest time on record is 7 years.

    You started a thread about 10oz Canadian Mint bars on 10th March - (less than a week ago) - you said you were considering getting 10 of these bars. If you believe the logic of the video and that we are awash with silver, then why would you consider doing that?
    How does anyone know there are 1.4 trillion of tonnes silver in the Earth's crust? No-one can know this. Since only a tiny fraction of the Earth's crust has been tested it is just a guess, it is less than a guess.
    At current prices only a tiny fraction of the silver could be extracted - most of the Earth is covered by the oceans. What cost mining at the bottom of the Atlantic, 25 miles beneath the ocean floor and then getting the silver back to a refinery? $100's if not $1000's per ounce. Most of the Earth's silver is completely uneconomic.
    Imagine the cost of extracting the (theoretical/plucked out of thin air) average of 0.075g of silver per tonne of Earth's crust. That means you would have to sort through 414 tonnes of material to get just 1oz of silver. The cost of extracting, shifting, refining and then producing a 1oz silver coin would be many multiples of the current price. This is where this sort of video is as empty headed as those making out silver is going to shoot to $600/oz by Christmas.
    No wonder the comments have been disabled on youtube for this video - i expect it was getting a lot a flack just as it deserved.

    Also regarding the spots, it seems like when used in heraldry the spots are very common.  This image below is similar to the design used on the coin, and the reference page has a good amount of interesting history as well:

    This was always going to be a challenging design given the nature of the beast (so to speak). Personally I think the end result is pretty unattractive as a coin if only because the creature itself is pretty hideous. I'll get one for completeness at least but not for aesthetics.
    That said, the least attractive coin in a series will often undersell and end up being worth more long-term due to supply and demand as people in future try to put together sets.
    BTW here's the gold version:
