    Canadian Mint - Superman coins

    The Canadian mint just released some 75th anniversary superman coins. Limited mintage.. thought someone here might want to know, I think they will sell out.

    The Coins are 90% sold out after 4 days. Be interested to see what these will be worth in the future. It's combining the 3 biggest collectables, comics, coins and even stamps.

    I have noticed several posts by you about buying coins. I hope you're not spending too much money on these "collectibles" -- anything being specifically made and marketed that way surely isn't a true collectible. Be careful.

    royal canadian mint coins are terrible investments
    but very fun and beautiful collectibles

    some people buy them and try to flip them fast by getting issues that will sell out but it is a tricky process and you put up with a lot of hassles for small margins

    For collectable coins I only bought the 20 for 20 silver coins and these coins. Overall only about 10% of my net worth is in collectables that includes my gold and silver maples.

    As for the flipping I noticed guys on eBay doing that. Saw the gold coin for 969. The original price was 750. Have to keep an eye on it see if it actually sells.

    What I don't understand is why is the "Canadian" Mint releasing a coin of a "DC Marvel" comic character? Is it running out of themes or they just want some fun? What's next, Batman?

    As with the royal mail and all their various stamps as mentioned by Cal, if they can sell it and turn a profit, the mint will make it. To me they've gone overboard with the sheer quantity of these things.

    Beaver, Superman was created by a Canadian.

    i used to collect coins and stamps ... some of the caribbean nations (among others) will release a stamp to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the tennis shoe or to remember gomer pyle ... iow, they release so many crappy stamps that the collectible value is ruined

    the mint is walking down the same road ... releasing so many coins celebrating and remembering just about anything you can think of which pretty much is destroying the investment value of any of this stuff

    but the coins are pretty, thats for sure
