I am considering buying .999 silver one once NASCAR coins which would be a combination of 2 of my favorite things (collecting coins and nascar). I came across a set of 6 on eBay which includes Davy Allison, Alan kulwicki, mark Martin, bill Elliot, Harry grant, and Kyle petty. The problem I am having is I have attempted to research these coins and have had a very hard time finding information on them. Can anyone tell me anything about them? Year they were made or if they are rare? Not sure how to put a picture on here or a link but You can find it on eBay by going on eBay and searching:

(6) Nascar 1 ounce .999 silver coins

Auction ends 5/5 so any information will be greatly appreciated.

ask the seller questions about the set. then research it. i saw a mark martin sterling silver cheap on the bay.
also research tokens as really the nascar token is really not a coin.
hope this helps.

The seller told me he he does not know anything about them. He said it was part of his fathers collection that he found when his father passed. I searched every way possible and did find the Martin on eBay and also an individual site selling it for $65. However I have been unable to find anything on the kulwicki and Allison tokens.

Mcole, these are referred to as .999 silver rounds (as opposed to rectangular .999 silver bullion) not coins or tokens. There seem to be quite a few of these offered all over the internet although the Allison round has very few listings. I saw asking prices ranging from $29 to $65. Today's price for .999 silver bullion or rounds is approximately $24 per Troy ounce...
Look up silver values here: http://www.apmex.com/

In other words, each round is worth $24. Anything you pay over and above that amount is profit to the speculator. Will silver go up in value? Anyone's guess. A few years ago I was buying silver for around $7 per Troy ounce. Silver is silver - the NASCAR drivers' images are just a hook.

Just Google each round and you will see several listings. Here are a few...

Kulwicki: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nascar-Commemorative-Alan-Kulwicki-999-1-Ounce-Silver-Round-/261075580392

Martin: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MARK-MARTIN...llion-Sealed-Packaging-Serial-d-/221190836534

Elliot: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Ounce-999...h=item460ecc7bff&ssPageName=RSS:B:SHOP:US:101

Gant: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Troy-Oz-9...00473117684?pt=Bullion_US&hash=item5d3e0ed3f4

Petty:http://www.ebay.com/itm/ONE-1-OZ-99...TTY-RACING-GREATS-NASCAR-DRIVER-/221093180573


My guess is that you are not an experienced coin collector or you would know the proper name for these silver pieces. So be careful as you buy.

Good luck, man...
