    Huh, is there a lot of conspiracy about these coins being stashed and getting out?

    Yep. They are technically illegal to own, so if some collector wanted to buy one, it would have to be underground. It could potentially be as big as the 1933 St. Gaudens double eagle.

    Oh my goodness that's amazing, I wonder how many got out... Like the double eagle, switched for older dates... or maybe they melted them all. One thing is for certain, whoever has them isn't letting go of them.

    Man that is a shame. I should fly to DC call the Denver mint and ask if they are ready to try making some silver peace dollars and see if they can be fooled into making a 2012 peace dollar! Amazing that all it took to get someone to make these is a phone call.

    You have to merge the "e" with the "rar" in rare when you copy the link into your web address bar.

    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
