    I have looked at those on eBay several times but they are too pricey for me. I wonder if Haggs can get them for an actual dollar.

    I doubt it. Even the mint itself charges for the value of the silver rather than the face value. Kind of silly the way that works...

    Don't coins of this sort usually appreciate in value? I have been following some Australian kangeroo-theamed coins, and as each year passes they become more valuable. So they are more investments than anything else.

    Yeah, you rarely lose money on coins. The metal value goes up as does the collector's value.
