I was mesmerized by that honker years ago when you first showed it to me... and still am. What was the mintage on that, something like 5?

The best I can find on the mintage is "23 survived to leave the mint".

That's a coin that really has to be held to be fully appreciated. I challenge anyone to pick that up and not smile at its heft.
