La Flor Dominicana announced earlier this year that they would be releasing an NFT (Non-Fungible Token). However unlike most NFTs, this one would come with the right to buy seventy Andalusian Bulls a month indefinitely in new size dubbed the “Golden NFT” – a 6 1/4 x 42 Lonsdale and do with it as they please. The NFT also comes with the signature artwork that an NFT is known for PLUS a gold bar styled humidor called “The Gold Bullion” humidor. These NFTs are open to any bidder worldwide. We first saw all the pieces to this at the PCA 2022 Trade Show last month in Las Vegas. You can see that coverage here: PCA 2022: La Flor Dominicana

As we get closer to #7, it will be fun to see how these next three NFTs go. Heading into #5, there are still only three NFT owners, two of which are retailers. After the climbing prices of the NFTs as the auctions continue, expect them to break over $100,000. The final NFT, #7, will sure to be an interesting one to watch in the final minutes.

Fans of LFD in their Discord chat room have begun to band together and request another, much larger format size of the Andalusian Bull. LFD has said in an effort to protect the integrity and value of the NFTs for their new and exclusive owners, that at this time they will not make any new sizes of the Andalusian Bull outside of the two that now currently exist. However like everything – time will tell if this stays in place.
