Celebrating the centennial of a design change over is a stretch to begin with. The Peace Dollar has bupkis to do with Carson City (the mint closed in 1899 but was an assay office until 1933 - don't see 1921 in there at all).
The program has to cover costs before the surcharge starts to pay off - shipping a press from SF/Denver, setting it up in Carson City (site prep too) and shipping it back is going to cost a pretty penny.
Please, do not give the Mint failing ideas for them to act on.
Not by a significant amount when it is spread over 500,000 coins. If the shipping costs $20,000 that comes to 4 cents per coin. $20,000 each way, 8 cents per coin. On a coin they are going to charge $50+ on, it doesn't amount to much of anything.
Probably couldn't do that without restoring Mint status to the CC mint which would be a bit difficult since the government doesn't own the building anymore.
Come to think of it, since the CC mint doesn't exist anymore as a government facility, the CC "mintmark" on a 2021 Morgan is questionable as well. A "mintmark for a mint that doesn't exist.
31 U.S.C. § 5132
(a)(2)(B)(ii) all coins minted under this paragraph shall have a mint mark indicating the place of manufacture.
And all congress has to do is pass a law for this coin only , then it can be minted at any Mint. I for one would not put it pass congress to do this.
I am in. Especially for the Peace dollars
