I'm against them. I'm not sure why people swap lots of legal tender for a lot less legal tender that's a bit funny looking.

(plus side, if you get a load of coins and arrange them in date order from most recent to oldest, you can see the queen get younger and hotter. it's like an olay advert or something!)

Silver is at $30 an ounce with 2 coins that's $60 in silver so your really paying for two very small very generic pictures... I'll spend my money on those new masterpieces

I own a few actual antique coins. But I hate it when evertime someone famous takes a s**t and they get a coin to commemorate the moment. These remind me of those WWII, Apollo Mission, Elvis Presley and Sept 11 coins always being sold in newspaper ads. A pure novelty.

Pawn Stars silver coins?! They made Pawn Stars silver coins!!
Man have I been living under a rock!

I'm no coin collector myself, but the Optimus Prime coin would be a treasure...
