Quite mundane springs to mind. 

Do they come in caps or a presentation case as it will be hard to find any of the collector out there. 

I'm leaning towards that. If they do not give caps with these, then it's a lose lose situation imo.

I was initially intrigued by the triangular shape of this new ‘coin’ series, but somewhat underwhelmed by the design; especially, the one on the reverse of this first release.

Reading LPM’s explanation of this hasn’t really helped to convince me of its merits!

It reads as follows …

“The exquisite design of the reverse conveys two scenes to communicate the journey of the Batavia. With the image of the ship viewed upright, the Batavia is shown setting sail in its full glory.”

OK so far, but then this …

“Upside Down”

“Flipping the coin to view the text of ‘1629’ and ‘Batavia’ upright depicts the ship in its final state capsized shortly after wrecking in 1629.”

Yes, really!

In other words, the more ‘adventurously-minded’ among us can get all interactive and simulate the actual sinking of the ship … simply by holding the coin upside down in our hands!

Worth the premium alone, surely!

Cue; a lone tumbleweed being blown by the wind across a bleak and desolate wasteland!

Too rich for me, as said earlier these will end up at spot price at some point, imho.

I agree will be spot price but I am just buying them as a toy purchase

Fair play, I have bought things in the past because I like them and paid good money for them. I think it's the fun part of this hobby to have things that are different and you want because of that difference

I got it last week Monday. Looks good, but unfortunately same bullion quality as Dolphin, Mob of Roos,... 

All my ship coins already have tiny white spots. Royal Australian Mint should fix the problems. I'm afraid you are right that later it might end up at spot price. I won't buy the other ships of the series unless they are near spot.

I will get one just because it's a first. 

If you mean first triangular coin, there have already been some minted, though they are very uncommon.
