  1. Not a big genre coin collector myself, but they do actually look kind of nice.

  2. Silver prices are currently sitting below 17 dollars per ounce. The image of Captain Jean-Luc We Don’t Use Money In The Future Picard must be worth one hell of a markup.

  3. It’s a limited run. The licence costs money. The design costs money. The production dies cost money. So does the packaging and the promotion. It isn’t a mass-produced bullion coin and even those cost more than the paper price of money. You need to understand that all of these costs are spread over just 5,000 coins.
    It’s a collectable made of silver. You don’t complain a model kit selling for 70 bucks contains only $1 of plastic, or a $5 comic includes 5 cents of ink and paper, do you?

    I do.
