      Doubtful. With an ounce of silver each. Looks like they’re charging spot x 2.5. (4 oz per set, each set priced @ 10x spot.) I’ll expect to find them in coin shops at spot + $5 or so in a year or two. Of course, by then the original buyers might have made a profit. Silver spot was under $15 not that long ago. If these had been issued then, at $37.5, they’d be in the money today, on melt value alone.
