Packaging on the original was really first class and that is in evidence here as well. The rarity factor is considerably higher. The debut variant had a limit of 5,000 pieces, which even given how well done the coin was, turned out to be a touch high, as they’re still available. No such problems this time as the mintage of the black variant is capped at just 250 pieces.
So all is well? Not quite. Now, we’ve only seen these at EMK in Germany at the moment, but they sport a near €400 price tag. With the original on sale at the mint for sub $170 USD, that’s a hard sell for us. A cool issue, but not a great value one, in our opinion. Available to order now.
