Does that mean you were able to get one? Good for you! Well, I currently have two credit cards, but I used and will use precisely none of them to buy coins from the MTM. :) Those mini-mintages pervert the idea of circulating commems ...

Unfortunately I was not able to get one :(

What's surprising is that the coin is still available on the website!!! :o

Even if they were selling it to non EU buyers, I don't think I would have bought it for €145 (postage included?)...Currently have an offer of €450 (which is perhaps the 'cheapest' offer so far) from a dealer friend, nice profit making opportunity for them...

MTM has now cancelled hundreds if not thousands of orders that were made after the coin was already sold out.

Quote
The sale of the commemorative 2 € coin “150 years of the Monte Carlo Foundation by Charles III” attracted a record breaking interest.
From the first minutes, the number of transactions overtook the number of coins available.
This situation triggered a web queue in the secured banking payment process. This was operating independently from the purchase service provided by the Musée des Timbres et des Monnaies. The available stock was distributed on a first come first served basis.

Had they reserved some % of the total mintage for dealers (through their direct sale system for dealers)? I'm asking this because I can't see many dealers offering this commemorative on eBay or elsewhere, usually it's not the case with Monegasque commemoratives... ;)

Congratulations! :thumbsup:

I hope they start delivering coins outside EU next time onward, so that I can also try my luck! ;)
