    That's a cool sales gimmick. Probably made if cheap aluminum though but they still look nice.

    It says $20 on it but you have to pay $22.95 +shipping. Why am I paying $22.95 for a $20 coin?

    If it would have been a glock they would have cost $50 because Glock would need to get its $45 for advertising.

    I expect it's .999 or at least .900 silver. I don't see that on the coin, however, and I don't buy silver bullion without the weight and purity of the metal.

    Cool coin, though.

    Spot price as of this moment for an ounce of silver is $16.78. At the place I buy silver from locally, I can probably come away under $20 for an ounce. But it is normal and expected to pay a premium over spot price. $6.17 over spot is a little high, but not outrageous.

    Note that you're also paying for the coin itself; it is desirable for more reasons than "it is made of silver".

    From Bud's site:



    2009 Second Amendment Dollar
    One Ounce .999 Fine Silver

    Quantity Discount Available*

    Since time immemorial, man has had the right of self-preservat*ion. That right, to defend and protect one's life, family and property, was enshrined by the Founding Fathers of the United States in the great Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

    Long live the Second Amendment: THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!

    Now, the Second Amendment is commemorated in a special $20 Silver Commemorative Dollar dedicated exclusively to that Right. A man's home is his castle. He has an inherent right to protect it and that right shall not be infringed.

    BudsGunShop.com, a proud supporter of the Second Amendment, is pleased to offer this 2009 Second Amendment Dollar with volume pricing so everyone can commemorate his and her right to Protect Life.

    The $20 Second Amendment Dollar is larger than the old US silver dollar and is specially commemorated with one Troy ounce of pure .999 fine silver. The obverse features Lady Liberty symbolizing American rights she has fought so hard to protect. The reverse features the Second Amendment text and the iconic 1911 hand gun that played a significant role in WWI, WWII, Korean, and Vietnam Wars and is still used today to protect the American way of life. Every Gun Dollar with a MSRP of $20 measures 39mm and is minted in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition with high relief to exemplify the high ideals of the Second Amendment.

    Like the commitment to the values on which our great country was founded, the value of the 2009 Second Amendment Dollar in pure silver will not fade. And with your support, the Right to keep and bear arms will not fade. Long live the Second Amendment!

    *ATTENTION:* This is a pre-distribution purchase opportunity, as we will not actually begin shipping the newly minted Gun Dollars until November 1st. Orders will be shipped in the order they are received, regardless of quantities. Year 2009 distribution quantities are limited, so please order early to insure delivery by the holiday season.

    Please also note that the rates for the Second Amendment Dollar are based on the price of silver that is constantly changing. In order to provide you with the best possible prices the silver price is automatically updated every 20 minutes while the global silver market is open. All canceled orders will be charged our standard 20% restocking fee.

    *** NOTICE: Second Amendment Dollar is not intended to be used as United States currency and any representation as such is strictly prohibited by law.

    Good point, that counts me out. But its a cool idea. You guys know that if enough of us want to do it we can get our own made, we could either do challenge coins or .999 pure silver. I know a few places. The mold would probably be $200-250 then it would just be the cost of metal.

    2nd amendment coin

    I have one of these rounds, it was given to me as a gift. I collect coin and beleive stongly in our right to bear arms. I can assure you this is the real deal, it is one troy ounce of .999 silver, not a gimmick.
