Hi

 

I am no Mandela expert, but some time back there was talk of some of the 2008 Birthday coins (In the case with the 2000 Mandela) that were sent to NGC for grading. These came back Proof although they were lazer frosted. NGC then requested that these be returned, but I guess that some did not return.

I may be wrong (not the first time) but these cannot have any value as there were never proof coins minted. Hern's does not make mention of them and would have if there were proofs minted. Someone is going to get their fingers burnt!!

 

Cheers

Hi

 

You can clearly see from the pictures that this is a proof coin. It is almost a perfect PF70 when looking at the coin itself.

 

This auction must be a record for bid or buy with over 1000 page views and 49 users tracking :)

 

Good Luck to the winning bidder :)

 

Regards,

The coin does look stunning Ewaan, my question was just how many proofs were minted and if possible when was these released........

 

Good luck to the winner. The coin looks amazing.

Hi,

 

are you refering to the Mandela Commemorative R5 Set which sells for around R1000??

 

Those 2008 Mandela coins were all laser frosted and are not original proofs thus they cannot (or should I rather say "should not") be graded as proofs. Perhaps one of the experts on this forum can enlighten us,

Thanks Anthony for that........

This is exactly what I was looking for.

This proof coin must have came from the set!

Hi

 

I think if we wait a while we might see these proof R5

Mandela 2008 coins CHEAPER than what they are being offered for now. Remember when the 2008 mandela R5 were offered for the first time people were paying alot more than what they are going for now.

 

2nd Point

 

If they were only released recently shoud they not grade

" In Retro Spect":confused:
