This October marks the launch of the world’s first #RumCoin, which is enclosed with the oldest rum in the world – Harewood Rum 1780. Lux Coinand Mint of Poland have collaborated on this special project! The Rum Coin will be presented on October 20 during #RumFest in London.

What do you think ???
cheers

It would be more intresting, if they give you the rum in a seperate bottle, if I may say...:°

​I think you will find that most people disagree. Though, the beauty of this hobby is that one needs not concern themselves with what others think one should collect.

I hate mint products like this. The coin is brilliant but it is only worth the bullion value of gold on the day it is sold. If you pay more you are being taken, unless you collect on the theme of ships or a liquor theme.

Agree ! :O

Personally I don't have any interest in such coins. I prefer coins with a historical value (even faint), I believe that bullion coins like this are only sold to make profit. I can understand that people collect them but that's not what I'm looking for in coin collecting. :)

It's a normal mintage for new gold coins. Nothing special.

A lot of modern gold coins have low mintage numbers in the 1000s or even 100s, nothing special.

​Gotta agree with Choucas, perhaps it will be historically valuable in a few centuries but for now I've no interest in most coins issued since 1945.

​The only value is the gold-weight. And the rum, but I fear you will spill it by accident by taking it out...:8D

​Sometimes these coins can be good investments, but generally it's a complete gamble. Most NCLT lose a lot of it's value after purchase, almost like a new car. But there are some that are gimmicky and get popular, like the Coke coins, and have good resale value. In general coins are not a great investment unless you buy extremely rare and expensive coins.

It could be a good investment if you can get one for melt. But the ones with premium are mainly just for profit.
I love Slavic coins.
just DM me if you would like to trade, I am currently looking for old Russian coins at the moment.

The gimmicky-ness of the coin aside, does anyone know if this is the first/only coin that contains a liquid substance in it?

I actually think that's pretty cool, just not cool enough to pay melt value, let alone any premium above that for it.

​I've seen some compass coins before...
Maybe one of them did?
I'll edit this post to a forum link to Lamoneta.it where they make fun of this type of coin.
and No!
Tuvalu got there first in 2013 with a whiskey coin!

That is a ripoff even for a collector of NCLTs...... Definitely NOT a good investment!

With 22.5 grand...
I know what I'm buying.
they're called Mutual funds.
And if it really has to be coins, I can buy most of VEIII's cold issues in MS!
Then talk about rarity!

You could get 1009 bottles of Bacardi rum with that much money.



(I guess that could be enough for a night in a pinch ;))

​To be fair the drops of whiskey and rum embedded in the coins are from very old preserved bottles, but yeah, for the price of all three you'd probably be able to buy a pretty exclusive vintage to serve at a dinner party. :O
