That being said, I'm on board for a Proof Peace Dollar.
(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.
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.
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.
But I've got no interest in an ongoing set of random date bullion pieces (peaces? )
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.
