Considering that 2012 is 4 whole years away I wonder if they actualy plan to mint it out of "silver" or just some other silver colored metal. By then there is a good chance they'ld have to price it higher than $10 or make it reallly tiny or use a really low percentage alloy considering what could happen to the price of silver over that long of a period.^_-
