Do You Collect POTF Coins?
« on: April 15, 2003, 06:13 PM »
So do you collect POTF coins? Do you have them still on cards or do you rip the sickers off the card?

I have only 4 that are carded. Luke Stormtrooper, Amanaman & Luke & Leia Poncho.
The rest are loose.
Crap, forgot to mention the carded EV-9D9. So thats 5 carded.



The one on the bottom left & bottom right are my favorites.  ;D

So do we have any collectors out there that collect these?

I don't have any of them.  I never really thought about collecting these, but they are pretty cool looking.  How much do those usually go for?  I know I could check 'em out on eBay, but you're much more valuable than eBay.

Yak Face can go for $80. up. Anakin around $60. up.
The others around $5. to $10.
The Yak Face coin I got from Tom Derby at Cloud City. Minty Mint.   :)

I want to start, but finding the coins to fund coin collecting is a little tough. I know where I can get 2 loose (R2-D2 and Barada I think), but have had other priorities. While they are only $15 for the pair or so, I always have found higher prioritites.

I have just finished submitting an extensive (maybe beyond extensive) checklist of all known coins (rare, prototypes included) and it will go up with an entirely revised vintage set of checklists on this site in the near future.

And poor you, DSJ, only having 5 carded...

Hope I can say that someday. Vintage collecting is a dream, hope I can find the $$$ to fund such a paasion someday.

I never really collected the coins. I had some when I was a kid but never really held on to them. Now as an adult collector I think they have a certain apeal to them but they are low on my personal list of priorities. I have been looking at area shops for any cheaper ones and if I can add a few for little change I would pick them up.

Anyone collect POTF Coins?
« Reply #5 on: May 20, 2004, 09:00 AM »
I was just wondering if anyone collects them or has a complete set.

I finally completed my set of 62 about a year ago. I also have the much smaller Luke X-Wing coin with Yoda on the back which no one seems to know where it came from. A complete set of Droids and Ewoks coins.

Currently I am looking for the 63rd coin and some of the rarer mistake coins like Sail Barge, etc...

So any one out there have some of those really rare ones, ever seen them for sale, anything at all?

Dale,

Nice topic.  Once I am complete with the "100" I have thought about starting on the coins.  My biggest concern is that I will look to complete the collection with the VHTF coins like the "Jedi Knight" & Cantina Creatures Coins to name a few.  

There sure are some tuff coins and variations to get if you get started with these.  I imagine trying to get them in uncirculated condition (no scratches) will be an equally tall order.

The coins sure look nice!

Well, the coins are awesome. They are nicely done. Some are really tough finds, Hoth Trooper coin and the Skiff coin. Boba Fett coins are tough and over priced becuase of his poularity. As for the error coins, like "Hans" Solo or "Sail Barge" I don't have any and still am looking for them. I think this is a set that is worth completeing because alot of people don't have it. I feel the same way about the Droids and Ewoks (which I also have complete sets MOC). They are the less collected beauties that in the end are really awesome.

Speaking of a lull in the auctions & then they go up...

POTF Yak Face Coin C-9.5+

I paid around $80. for mine from Cloud City last yr & it was straight off the card & not a mark on it. I have never seen one go this high!

I have to say that is pretty high for a yakface but not out of the question for some others. Actually its a good price for some.
