    I really like this visually stunning 2020 Mongolia 250-tögrög piece. It's not a "need-to-have" but it's a "nice-to-have" and surely I can afford the 50g COPPER version, I thought. However, APMEX was out of stock, so I registered to get notified. Tonight I got the email saying it's back in stock! Yipppeeeee! I hurried to log on and that's when I saw the price. $73. Alrighty then.

    The year 2020 is cleverly camouflaged somewhere on this coin. Can you see it?

    A talon points to the date. :)
    I just looked it up, 250 tögrög is worth 9 cents U.S. :woot: (I know, it's a numismatic issue, I've paid more than $73 for dimes)

    I was naive enough to think this would go for roughly the price of a regular copper round. Say about $1.50 per ounce. Lol. Sigh....

    I think it's a beautiful coin, just not $73 beautiful or even $53. I could see $19.95 as the highlight of my copper set.

    One is paying the original designer, engineering and manufacturing costs.
    I wonder if after market prices on this will plummet ... or too few ppl buy them and price stays raised, at least for a while.

    It's not really a "copper round" but more a work of art you are buying.

    Alrighty then, indeed.
    I do agree with Clawcoins that this is more of an "art medal" than just a "copper round."
