It’s a tragic story.

The trouble with Theme (Stacking) Collecting on my Quarterly Dollar Cost Averaging plan is that I could miss a silver round or two in trying to complete series. Right off the start and to my HORROR that nightmare had it come to pass.

With the character of the Canadian Silver bullion market and the so few Gothic Stackers like myself, I expected this Intaglio Mint bullion product line to be a slow mover and may just go down in price, especially in the Horror genre.

The Silver Round

2020 Dracula 2 Troy oz. Vintage Horror Series
Obverse; Count Dracula, Lettering; DRACULA
Diameter 39mm, Thickness 6mm
Mintage: not yet published

Representing the central character of Bram Stoker’s 1897 horror Novel Count Dracula. Book than spawned a following in Victorian England for the taste for the supernatural and began the genre of Horror writing.

“How good and thoughtful he is; the world seems full of good men--even if there are monsters in it.” ~ Count Dracula quotes.

Mind you that I am happy that this Canadian E-tailer who have been, albeit gradual, they had expanded a better bullion product line as long as I can remember making my first purchase from. But since the WallStreetbets effect over the last few weeks this Coin E-tailer suffered the same fate as their American counterparts.

Goodbye Frankie, Wolfman, and Swamp Creature, my post physical silver run assessment saw these iconic Horror monsters slip from my clutches when I decided to await on the next planned purchase list. With the $24 CAD high premium I felt the false sense of security knowing that they would be there on my next purchase window.

The Next Round

2020 Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde 2 Troy oz. Vintage Horror Series Type 1
Obverse; Dr. Henry Jekyll & Mr. Edward Hyde, Lettering; DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE
Diameter 39mm, Thickness 6mm
Mintage: not yet published

The original central Character from Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 Gothic novel “The Strange case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” follows the dual nature of a London Legal practitioner with two personalities.

Type One of this round featured Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on separate rounds

The Series is as follows;

  • Dracula ✔
  • Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (type 1) ✔
  • Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (type 2) Sold out
  • Frankenstein
  • The Mummy
  • Swamp Creature

“Oh, the terrible struggle that I have had against sleep so often of late; the pain of the sleeplessness, or the pain of the fear of sleep, and with such unknown horror as it has for me! How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams.” ~ Count Dracula quotes

2020 Intaglio Mint 2 Troy oz. 999 FS Vintage Horror Series
Reverse; Intaglio Mint Logo in radial spiral
MMXX (2020)
Lower Legend; .999 FINE ESILVER
Edge; Reeded

Intaglio also made these in 1 oz rounds, my retailer only had available the 2 troy oz rounds at the time. I wanted the 2 oz, size regardless as these often made in a better quality of relief than that of the 1 oz.

The Retailer is not planning to restock this series. So, in hindsight I could have extended my purchase and a bit more flexible with my Emergency Reserve funds. I am going to have a tougher time filling out this series.

Bonus Silver Skull

Beaver Bullion 1 Troy oz. 999 FS Celtic Skull
Front, Celtic Style Skull
Length 29mm, Width 22mm, Depth 8mm

Beaver Bullion (BB) is a brand by John Masterson, a Canadian Silver Artist known also for his Masterson Pirate bullion bars line. Nice to know he is still pouring since I discovered his product line almost five years ago.

Beaver Bullion 1 Troy oz. 999 FS Celtic Skull
Back; “BB” for Beaver Bullion
Lettering; TROY OZ .999 FINE SILVER
Mintage: unknown

The one Troy oz. Skull makes it five Troy Ounces.
There is more to this recent order coming later a blog.

Despite my error in not being able to complete this set in the near future, I am content to have my favorite and most important round of the Gothic icon Dracula and ‘Count’ myself fortunate. To a Goth, any day can be Halloween!

I hope you enjoyed this spooky feature of silver
