Lohan Series. 1st in Series 80g Silver hard to find.  Planned mintage: 999.  I believe, actual is a lot lower, but may be minting 100 more when the 2nd one comes out 

1.  This will continue.  The goal is to have all 17 complete within 3 - 4 years time.  
2.  There will be Antique Silver (80g and 300g).  80g will be 999 PLANNED Mintage; and 300g will be 30 Planned mintage
3.   There will be Brass.  (3000 planned mintage)
4.   The 300g Silver for 1st in Series will be out end of Sept - mid-Oct.  It will prove to be in exceptional quality, just like the 80g.  
5.   2nd in series should be out around Oct/Nov.

If you have any questions, please let me know, and I'll get the answers.  Have a great weekend.
