    Sounds like an excuse to raise prices again.

    I really have no interest in these...well maybe a little for the reverse proof.

    They are not Morgan and Peace Dollars. They are commemoratives.

    Does that even count as an article? Looks like an AI found two halves of two separate press releases and smashed them together without any attempt to make a coherent thought.

    That being said, I'm on board for a Proof Peace Dollar.

    I wasn't interested in the 2021 issues. I don't care for reused designs.

    (Yes, Silver and Gold Eagles and Gold Buffalos- I'm looking at you.)

    To me, a classic design belongs on a classic coin. A modern coin should have a fresh design. When it doesn't, it's like those "reboots" so many movies are getting. Sure, the new one may be good, but the recycling of old ideas strikes me as uncreative and a little bit lazy.

    Surprisingly the 2021 Peace Dollars sell pretty good on ebay and I've been surprised with the fake CC mint mark Morgan's selling pretty good as well. :D

    Thanks for the info. Regardless of what one's opinion is of these I'm glad the info was shared. I do think the mint has totally lost any creative thoughts. Seems as though nothing really new comes along except some type of new quarter reverse for a few years, a new lincoln reverse every fifty years, and a different pose for jefferson. We need another Teddy to come along in the near future. If we keep doing this where is collecting going to be in 20 to 30 years? Can't we make a new obverse and reverse of something for a new coin? I could allow myself to go on and on about this, but I think you get what I'm stating here.

    Coin collecting will need to be redefined totally. If you have little to no ability to collect coins from circulation it becomes an issue of how many can you afford from the mint. After over 70 years I quit buying new releases from the mint. You will need to buy or find about 25 or more quarters each year for the next 10 years. Same as you did for the last 20 years. Not much fun anymore.

    You can hate them and they dont move the needle much for me either, but they are Morgans and Peace dollars. Commemoratives have to be ordered by congress

    That said I wouldnt feel the need to have them in a complete set, but a proof or rp does interest me a lot more than a standard basically bullion of the originals. I wish theyd do an RP of each then just call it a day and end the recycling of the design.

    The problem arises from the mint hiring engineers to do an artisans' job.

    The mint is fully capable of making these as they were over 100 years ago, when they looked better. Instead of a proper reducing machine giving sharp detail, they use a scanner and CNC equipment. Instead of polishing the dies the way they used to, they put a dead looking digital luster on the coins. While they're not as bad as the 2006 commemorative, these coins are little different from the Chinese fakes of today.

    I do have a set of these slabbed as MS70.I don't have a lot of experience with slabbed coins in my past. I only own one from2008. When this set arrived I was surprised how little luster they had, almost a "dead" look to them. They do look flawless to the eye and do have a shine to them, but no pop. Does the slab itself have anything to do with this? I was at the bank recently and got a loomis roll of nickels. They were all popping and cartwheeling so much more than the morgan and peace dollar set.

    @lardan
    You brought up a good point, the new dollars do not have cartwheel luster.
    I miss that, I think the burnishing takes it away.
    The 1924 looks alive the 2021 not so much.

    These are AI coins. No personal skill or craftsmanship required. They're like the no-driver cars coming up.

    I got a 2021 Peace dollar because I thought the centennial idea was kinda neat. I got an S-Morgan only because I dropped one in my cart to see if I could, and I could. ;)

    But I've got no interest in an ongoing set of random date bullion pieces (peaces? :))

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I'll be on board for the reverse proofs. I liked them on the ASE and I think they'll pop on these designs too.
