PostSubject: POTF coins   Fri Oct 23, 2015 12:08 pm

I have 43 of the POTF coins and I am thinking about trying to complete the set. Any idea how much a 62 coin set would be worth? I know about the 63rd coin but that is a pipe dream, probably. With only 10-20 in existence, I doubt I can put out the cash for it. But the 62 coin set may be within my reach. I know the Cat 4 and 5 coins are hard to find and very expensive, but an overall gauge would help me budget.

Have you got the "Coining the Galaxy" book? I actually got my coins out the other day- I reckon we are at the same spot- Cat 1-3 . I've got to 45 with small coin & eyes vs no eyes Luke. + 6 Ewoks.

I have no intentions of going much further, other than maybe the few Class Cs I am missing ( bloody book changed categories on us!! ) Yak's a 'D'

No, I don't have that book. Thanks for mentioning it. I will have to go get it.

Yeah, I have most of the Cat 1 to 3. I do have a few mail aways. I have the small x-wing Luke coin. I also have the mail away Millenium Falcon coin. I have some Ewoks coins. I didn't factor those in my 43. I actually am looking for the Ewoks Wicket coin. I have the other 5. But... I am trying to decide how much a 62 set would be worth to see if it is worth pursing the hunt.

An old catalog from 2012 by Brian's Toys had a coin set for around $7,000. Clearly, prices have gone up since then. I wonder if they ever really were able to complete a set and sell it for that. Seems like a steal now.

I am sure it was mentioned on fb that a 62 went for around $14, 000. Shocked I have been out the coin collecting game for a few years, so I am behind of current valuations, just I got mine when I did.

Carl, that seems cheap going by what individual coins are listed at. You mean a set for $14000 right? A short while ago someone asked over on rs and I don't remember the value exactly but I was thinking it was around $25000 for a set. Not hard to imagine when you see multiple coins listed up for sale over the $1500 mark. The coins just never caught my attention. They are cool to look at, but in hand they just never excited me. To each his own though.

$25000? Seriously, omg! That's incredible, like I said I have been out of it for a while! I wonder what a droids set ic prototypes and unproduced would go for?

I looked on the fb page for TIG but I don't see any discussion about coins. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Lots of specialty groups on Facebook. I am not on Facebook, but I think some of them are closed groups so you have to ask to be added. I am sure some of the guys could contact you with information or links to them if you ask.

Prices have shot up on everything vintage it seems. Star Wars vintage figures (and coins) are way more expensive now than at the beginning of the year. It's getting crazy.
