The problem was that the chrome gold parts where not completely ready for the first production run and therefore the sets got packed with the not shiny gold parts - we had then replacement parts ready for consumer service but unfortunately not the bars in time.Also -
There should be coins and bars in Chrome Gold ready as replacement through consumer service and also the new packed sets should contain the right elements.
So if you do not have the right parts in Chrome Gold yet or only received the coins please call consumer service and they will replace the parts with the right ones.
Sorry for all this confusion. We are not happy about this either.
We have confirmed that customer service has received a stock of the proper items to correct the non-chrome gold for the POTC issue. When calling customer service, explain that you do not want the gold coins, element 70501 instead you need prepack 4631481. This prepack has both the coins and the gold bar in it.You can find your local customer support phone number here -
