I'm sorry :oops: I was wrong! I just saw the picture and the price of USD 42, but did not check that there was no "Buy" button underneath.

@szykman: Thank you :D

EDIT: I have sent an email to Uwe Meffert to ask him about the availability of the Golden Gearball. Maybe, I'll get some information.

I'm sorry, but this is the email I got back from Uwe regarding the Golden Gear Ball

Hello Konrad,

Yes they are completely sold out and will not be repeated as I had to subsidized all of them with a lot more money then I originally had budgeted for.
I am glad that you like them.

I asked Uwe about the number of Golden Gear Balls made and about Jade puzzles. Here is his reply

Hallo Konrad.

Thanks for the inquiry, you can invite your friend as VIP Member and of course we still include the two painted Jade puzzles free, these will never be sold.
We made 100 of each Golden Chopsticks, Gear Ball and Nautilus these will not be reproduced as it is a very costly process with a high defective rate the gold bubbles up on the ABS surface.

Happy Puzzling
-Uwe

Hello, thanks again for this info. I do not care about if there is a bubble on the ABS surface. Any blemish at the plated finishing is not so bad, i know that if was flawless would be beautiful, but some little imperfection will not reduce the great look that it has. So if you have a Golden GearBall and is not satisfied with yours, please PM me and sell me your goldengear ball :lol:
