mintages of the taku coins

mintages of the taku coins
Does anyone have a definitive answer to the mintage numbers of the taku coins?
In another thread mojofabulous let us know that the 2011 1 oz mintage was around 20k.I've heard this from dealer sources also.I was told that the 2010 taku 1 oz has a mintage of 10k from someone in the business.
My real purpose for this thread is the 2011 5oz takus.None of my sources can verify the numbers minted.I just bought some in capsules and in blister packs so I am really curious to know what the mintage was.Any answers would be appreciated.Smile

RE: mintages of the taku coins
No I have not heard anything about the 5oz mintage. I will try to contact that same rep I spoke to previously to inquire about those particular ones. If I hear anything back, I will post it in this thread.

RE: mintages of the taku coins
From all the research I've done the last couple days, I came to the conclusion that all years of 1 oz Takus are unlimited mintage. This also includes the new zealnd mint. I'd love to be proven otherwise.

RE: mintages of the taku coins
How many times am I gonna have to keep re-pasting my email corrospondance with the new zealand mint rep. :-p The mintages are known!

2010 1 oz = ~10,000

2011 1 oz = ~20,000
2011 5 oz = 5,000

2012 1 oz = MAX 350,000
2012 1/2 oz = MAX 350,000

Well with all due respect Mr Mojo, you are not pasting correspondance with the mint rep (like shown above with respect to 5 oz), you are just pasting a bunch of numbers, I have never seen cummunication with a NZM rep regarding 1 oz Takus.

Correspondance would help as proof when dealing with silvergoldbull and my situation. Smile

discussed here: http://www.brotherjohnf.com/forum/Thread...-fiji-taku

My message to them(some info edited out for privacy reasons):

At Tuesday, March 13, 2012 - 10:31 the following enquiry was sent Customer Type: Customer

I was wondering if you could tell me what the max mintage is on the new 2012 1oz silver fiji taku. The website says the mintage is limited but not what the mintage is.

Also, what did the max mintage end up being for the 2011 1oz silver fiji taku?

Thank you



Their response:

Hi (edited) we minted approximately 20,000 1oz Takus for 2011, and approx 10,000 in 2010.

I cannot yet confirm the how many 2012 coins will be produced, or when they will be available.


Thanks

RE: mintages of the taku coins
As for the max mintage of 350k on the 2012 issue, it's on apmex:

RE: mintages of the taku coins
note it's 350k or less....I highly doubt it will reach 350k, but it will be higher than the 2010 or 2011

Mojo...

What an incredible LEAP in production!! WTF? Demand for coins must be amazing for them to go from an average of 15k to 350k in a year. Either way.. The market has changed for them in some fashion as shown by the numbers..

Am I missing something?

This is a guess, but I think 350k probably approximates what they feel would be their current production capacity for the year 2012. They pegged the max at that number. I believe the real mintage end of year will be much lower. Probably 30,000-70,000(again, guessing)

From what I understand the new zealand mint is still small potatoes compared to the big boys.

It's likely also an effort to demonstrate that their products are scarce. Stating a coin is unlimited is going to drive away collectors. Putting a cap, even a unrealistically large one, on their coins was something they should of done from the start.

So... the "capacity" is the key.. They don't actually produce that much (usually) but could if they wanted.. or could only produce 20k to 30k. So, we don't really know until the year is over and we can see the numbers on what they actually "producecd". Interesting and thanks for the clarification.
