    TheSilverMustFlow got a reaction from stefffana in 1976 Montreal OIympics Sterling Silver Coins complete set - are they worth it?   
    Thank you Stefan!
    Glad you approve, it's reassuring to hear that you think I made a good purchase. And I agree, purity doesn't matter - as you say, silver is silver. Pure, sterling, junk, it's all fine by me. I hope you're right that the value will increase over time - I have little doubt that the price of silver will keep going up, but it would be nice if, on top of that, such a beautiful set eventually became more prized by collectors. I feel it is undervalued at the moment. 
    Also, I'd completely forgotten that the Montreal Olympics were when Nadia Comaneci obtained her historic 10.0, that makes the set even more fun to own.
    Thanks again.

    I am really happy for you, my friend! Any gram of precious metal added to your stack is a step forward. I know these coins, are gorgeous and very well made. Doesn't matter if are only .925. Silver is silver. There are a lot of silver coins .100, .300, .500, .800, .850, .900. and are selling quick.  A lot of gold coins are only .900 or .916 and are well loved. It is not necessary to be "pure".
    Over all, you are the happy owner of a beautiful complete set of untouched coins (with face value and year of issue, not generic rounds), made especially for an special event.
    Don't forget what happened at 1976 Montreal Olympics: it was the first 10.00 offered for an gymnastics competition in history. In that year Nadia Comaneci from Romania was awarded with the first 10.00. Even Longines electronic displays wasn't prepared you this, showing 1.00.😊 see the picture attached😊
    Congratulation! It is a very nice set and I am sure, when the time to sell will come, its value will be higher.
    Cheers!
    Stefan.

    Hi - out of interest are these 999 or 925?
    Lots of the commemorative issues are 925 - I haven't see the Montral Olympics ones however.

    I would snap these up, great price. A collector might pay a premium and the melt value is always there.

    I had this set and ended up selling at a great loss.
    The reason for selling was that several coins were showing milk spots and creeping stains and I also noticed that the capsules were glued shut.
    They were all 925 silver and looked great but through lack of market interest they were only worth scrap value or even less.
    At the time of issue they would have been priced much higher but like so many similar sets just lost their appeal in time.
    If you like the set and it is priced near spot then pursue your dream but from an investment / value point of view I would avoid if that's what is more important.

    These are perfect for stacking, assuming you can get them as cheaply as anything else. They have no collectibility value.

    Plenty of individual coins out there most of the time. I wouldn't think collectors want them any more unless there is a special conectionto them. Spot price for sterling i'm thinking.

    I'd take them at $1 over spot! They'd be a good addition to the stack.

    These coins are great and come from the Canadian mint which is reputable 
    I don’t understand all the negativity about this coins.  They are proof coins 
    which make them have a premium over Bullion 
    I know these coins I have a set and they are Attractive 
    and could be a collectors item eventually .
    in the meantime they are a good investment provided you don’t pay to much over spot 925 price 
    Sincerely SilverTalent

    Yeah just -  7.5 %  925 silver is more durable as well .
    id buy the set if I had a chance . You have over a kilo of Sterling 925 silver can’t be bad

    Those are some very good points, thank you! I agree it's a beautiful set, didn't know they were proofs though, that's even better. 
    Also, you mentionned "spot 925 price" - is that a different thing from regular spot price, or does that just mean I should factor in the 7.5% of the coins' weight that isn't silver? Just wondering, I'm fairly new to this.
