Not only is this eye-catching because of the cubic sea creature featured on the round, but let’s look at the price here! Four – one ounce .999 pure silver rounds are being sold here for $259.00! As I check today’s silver spot price, I can tell you that this is not a good deal at all…unless of course you are a HUGE fan of cartoon sponges. As you all know, rare coins and numismatics will not always increase in value like you are told (almost never). This New Zealand coin, that is marked as a two-dollar legal form of currency in New Zealand has the Queen Elizabeth picture on the back making it a very unique coin. Ahh…when product placement meets currency. I wonder if the dollar will ever have “Coca-Cola” listed on it one day?
Is there any kind of coin or round you would buy because of a certain face or product being minted on it? I know there have been rounds with Presidents, other politicians, and heck, you can even order Michael Jackson on a Silver Eagle if you want. Even if you knew you were paying for the esthetic bonus and not the silver value would you spend an extra 10-20+%, or do you just want your silver? Tell us in the comment section below.
My advice is skip the fancy Spongebob and get some real bullion that’s worth the price.
