SirBill got a reaction from Justjoshinya in Mandalorian Beskar CoinBar
Yeah I got mine for around the same, I was really debating it as that was already pretty expensive, but like you it's for my own collection and enjoying, was pretty happy I got it now that I see how hard it is to get anymore. Also super glad I picked up some of the 1oz as well while they were still around, I was debating getting even more when the sale just shut down. Didn't think even the 1oz would be gone in a day! (APMex).

When I checked yesterday their stock of the 1oz bars fluctuated several times throughout the day I'm sure as they sell them to other mints in bulk they update their own stock when they open another monster box I imagine the monster boxes come on a pallet or in their own monster box probably 10x monster box so 3k at a time. Yesterday I saw them go from 3100+ down to the few hundreds several times throughout the day.
I do not expect their to be any more 10oz bars released from apmex as their were only 1k total and I'm sure half went to other mints worldwide and apmex sold the others themselves. They may have vaulted a few to be released possibly on may 4th or maybe sometime later this year at a high premium. But I dont think there is a restock on these coming. 1k is a very small amount especially when other mints have them as a listing as well.

The 10oz bars are limited to 1000, in five years time they will probably be at the spot price + $400. They are already selling for $715+ for each 10oz on eBay... I think you underestimate the power of Star Wars collectables mixed with precious metal.
It says quite a bit that each site with an allocation of 100 sells out in less than a day, even with APMex selling the last few bars at $600.
Plus, they are just darn cool! And will be easier to sell than some generic bar later on.
I get that many collectors are hyper-focused on getting silver at the absolute lowest price per ounce, that strategy makes a lot of sense. But I think there's also a place for a strategy where you are collecting cons desirable enough that selling later you may not only make back the higher premium, but quite a bit more... see: Queen's Beast series.
