U.S. Coast Guard 2.5 Ounce Silver Medal
Measures two inches in diameter

https://catalog.usmint.gov/us-coast-gua ... t-schedule

$160

Available next Tuesday the 17th.

I don't collect coins/medals, but I saw that this coming up and seemed like it might be of interest to some. Great image.

I do collect paper currency though, and it will go nice with my battle ship note.

That $2 battleship note is cool.

Good looking coin. I love the Coast Guard, but would feel like a poser owning one.

I'm in the same boat. I have a Highlander silver coin, and there can be only one...

Canadian mint pumps these types of coins out. While many are cool looking. They don't have the value to match the asking price. The coins have denominations that if the dollar becomes worthless. It has value as silver. If silver becomes worthless. It has value as money.

Sadly. If you pay $80.00 and it only have a $10.00 value. Not getting your money's worth.

At $160.00. Thats almost 7 ounces of silver if bought in one ounce bars. If you were to sell it/pawn it. Value at 2.5 ounces

Friend has about 40 of these coins. His coin collection. Little display for his home office
