    Well, no. I'm to see the cardiologist this very day in the hopes of discovering why the 19 days did not rid me of the original problem.

    ASE's have increased significantly in value over the past year with a 50% bump in the price of silver coupled by nice collector's bump over intrinsic value. ASE's are typically about $3 to $8 over their intrinsic value. The demand on the 2020 bullion coins created a nice bump in its value, but it will most likely slip in the outyears. The mintage of the 2020 ASE was over double that of 2019. Personally, I love the design and buy one each year. Here is the latest mintages versus values:


    Happy Stacking in 2021!

    Thanks for compiling this info. I might decide to put some of mine up for sale, especially for 2015 & 2016 since I have hundreds of those.

    Wow; you must really like them to own hundreds.

    Not really. I thought I might want to hoard them at one time, but then realized that it would be foolish of me to leave these for my wife to dispose of. No doubt she would be taken in by somebody.

    It looks like the big deal with these ASEs these days is to get them certified with different paper backgrounds inside the plastic case—I don't know the proper name for this—I watched a guy on one of those shopping channels last night (but not Mezack) run through dozens of different designs; some had the Statue of Liberty, some Donald Trump and some with American Flags. There were two different Trump ones which I thought odd, and one that said Happy New Year.

    What could a person sell a 2016 sealed monster box for? How do you even go about selling something like this?

    Bullion ASE's have increased significantly over the past year. It appears that they have gained collector interest as the price over spot is at least $15 for most of them. Here is the latest mintage versus original cost versus current value.

    These are just fine for the average collector as myself.

    Here are the prices I paid for the past two years (all prices included postage):

    2021 $34.37 Type 1
    2021 $40.00 Type 2
    2022 $34.43 Type 2

    Wrong thread. Let's not derail a long standing informative thread. ;)

    Wrong thread..?

    Its a perfect reply to the post above mine, it clearly demonstrates the role demand plays vs supply.

    You're right, of course, I don't look at mintages, I look at price, be they based on whatever reason. That's why this one and the 1914-D are the only early Lincolns I don't have. Given age and health, my collection will be given to my son-in-law without those two.

    Got the 2022 ASE bullion coin for my birthday. Here are some pictures.

    Great job! Any plans to list proof ASEs?

    Yeah but at the same time the stock market carries risk and it would depend on when the stocks were sold.

    PMs don’t have any risk (except maybe theft) as they are physical and tangible and in one’s physical possession.

    I remember reading a story about a guy who bought ASEs and buried like 10 monster boxes (5,000 ASEs) in his backyard for 40 years.

    When he dug it up to sell everything was just fine.

    And PMs don't depend on when you sell?


    If you'd bought silver in 1975, then sold it in 2000, you'd have found that it "held its value" -- in nominal dollars. But each of those 2000 dollars would have been worth about a third of the 1975 dollars you spent.

    And heaven help you if you bought at the peak in 1980; you'd have been looking at a greater than 85% loss of principal, in nominal dollars.

    I suppose you could argue that companies can go bankrupt, taking their stock to zero. That's certainly true. But by the same token, you can discover that your PM coins or bars are fakes. They're different risks, but there are still risks.
