Let me guess, 1,000 allotted to the bulk dealer program?

Not a bulk dealer item. First come first served...although I'm sure many dealers will have many people trying to procure extra ones for them.

@savvydon I was being facetious. I do agree with you that the dealers will be offering bounties and using shills.

For a 1,945 issue the mint should employ some sort of lottery program instead of relying on their crappy website.

Agree. Seems like these issues are set up to help the big dealers profit from the collectors.

I appreciate the pretty coin. But: to me, it is an ounce of gold -- no different from a Krugerrand.

I have trouble trading horses. :don't know:

Me too but the profits to be made if you manage to acquire one will be spectacular.

What is the best way to attempt to get one? Last time the whole site was locked up. I had one stuck in the cart but couldn't checkout.

Be logged into your account and have your address and payment current. Get to a place that has a fast strong connection. Practice purchasing by loading a cheap product into your cart and going thru the steps. Do all that and your chances still arent good but its worth trying.
