I never really got this: If they range from $1 to $10 coins, why is the set nearly $700?

690 credits? :o  Hmmm...

I think that even if I found 700 bucks on the ground, I would still not buy them.

It would be neat just to be able to say that I have some real Spacebucks.  Too bad they won't allow you to buy a single piece.
