But I guess they sold them all, right ? So they pretty much catered to demand, I guess.
I guess it was a residue of the adults who collected in the 1940's-1960's....get a family member or friend something to collect. Easiest thing was to just order from The Mint rather than scour coin shops and not know what you are buying.
Proof sets were all I got back then. Wish someone had skipped 90% of my presents and just gotten me 1 damn Saint-Gaudens or even a few Morgans on the cheap !!!
It looks like the 2012 set is still going for a premium.
I haven't bought a clad set in 25 years but the ever-declining mintages is interesting.
If you want to see a circulation coin in the best possible presentation, then the mint sets are the way to achieve that.
If you pull coins out of circulation you'll find some nice pieces but nothing beats seeing it the way it was really meant by the designer.
