I am told 3000 of these coins were minted.

Is there proof only 763 were minted?


UPDATED: 18 Mar 21:15

Thank you for your answer.

Please see the Natura coin Gem man is selling and please let me know if it is the same as yours.

He says 3000 were minted. Perhaps he is unaware only 763 were minted?

Not sure who your source is but they are clearly incorrect or know better than THE SA Mint who supply these figures . Just some info , when the mint launches a particular coin they decide at the outset what the maximum mintage would be for that coin . But that does not mean that mint the maximum at the outset , that would be not be wise , plus mean storage and safe issues . What they do is mint a small amount at the ouset , once that is sold or close to sold they mint the next batch and so forth until and if they reach the maximum . In mant cases they do not mint the maximum .

So this coin has a maximum mintage of 3000 but only 763 were actually minted . This information comes from the SA Mint

Kind Regards

He is looking at the Maximum mintage figure . These figures are generally only available 3 years after the coin was minted.
