    Only 30,000 of the 2019-S enhanced reverse proofs were sold. That's the lowest mintage in the series (low supply), a popular series that lots of people collect (high demand).

    Objectively, there's not a huge difference between the 2019-S ERP and other coins in the series. Similarly, there's not a huge difference between 1909 cents with or without the S and VDB, or 1916 dimes with or without the D. The coin hobby -- and, more importantly, the coin business -- isn't about objective huge differences. :)

    two virgins ?
    Stupid "gotta have it" Demand and marketing. Wait a year and the price will float way back down.

    Yeah, it's silly, but there's still a hefty premium for the ones still in unopened Mint packaging. :rolleyes:

    He didn't mean virgins, he meant versions. I think.

    Of course he did.

    The 'enhanced' "S" commands more money than the "W" because rabid dogs ran loose on the day the coin went on sale. Once bitten, the price of the coin soared because of its' so called rarity. 30,000 pieces doesn't preclude rarity, but in the mind of rabid creatures, it does. Check back in six months and I'm sure that the price for such will be vastly lower. And if it isn't, then the malady (rabies) has morphed into meningitis.........Tip of the hat to the virgins but I fear there are none left in the NY Metro area.

    For the 30,000-mintage Enhanced Reverse Proof, you can get more money if it's still in the unopened (brown) package the Mint shipped them out in. That way the buyer knows you haven't checked to see if it's got problems, or if it's got a signed COA (there were only 300 of those and they get extra money). If nobody's looked a the coin, it might be able to get a perfect (70) grade. If the package is opened, buyers assume you've looked at the coin and decided it wouldn't get a 70, so they aren't willing to pay as much.
