Mike,
Thanks for update.
Really thought Apollo 5 oz and AU coins would sell out (fast). Oh well, you can never tell. Sad they blew their handling of this.
It may not take AG long to go to $17. Will that give them an excuse to raise prices? They never lowered them when AG tanked.

Saw the special 1 hour of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon on CBS the other day. They showed several pictures, And i noticed on the silver & gold Apollo 11 coins that the U.S. Mint released, They look exactly as 2 pictures i saw on that special. The U.S. Mint did a fantastic job on these coins. I can’t believe they have not sold out, Especially the $5 gold proof coin. I’m very happy that i picked up an NGC proof 70 gold proof Apollo 11 coin. It’s gorgeous.

I picked up the Gold Proof on the first say it was available. I own the Two-Coin set, the Silver Dollar Proof, the Five-Ounce Coin and the Currency Set.

Thank you, Ira. Nice set of Apollo 11 coins. All purchased directly from the US Mint.

I still cannot believe the $5 gold coin hasn’t sold out yet! Such a beautiful & historic modern gold coin.
