  1. There is no product differentiation from the bullion version mentioned. The only remotely different aspect seems that it comes in a box with a certificate. That is hardly worth the approximate $300 surcharge. If there is anything unique to that of the bullion coin, then the USMint needs to employ basic marketing and explain this. As such, I couldn’t care more about this product.
