Unfortunately, most of those are not that interesting to me.
For those of us old enough to remember, it was a huge deal when the '76's were announced and introduced. I was 12, and figured out rather quickly they really were just spenders and not much else.
Seems those 'boobs' care even less than I do.........
Looks like the last moderns that I'll be thumbing into my Dansco's will be dated 2021.
I couldn't agree more.
When you introduce 10, 15, or 20 special coins every year for decades, they cease being special.
"Semiquincentennial" is a cool word I just learned, though.
The Mint does not put any coinage into circulation...we do...just saying...
So who out there is going to pay a premium for a 50 cent piece and then buy something with it for 50 cents?
Amen! I will not start another set of junk from the mint.
I cant wait to see how they fit it in on a coin!
Knowing the mint, you might as well go ahead and prepare slots for all the other deceased justices. They'd probably also introduce several new finishes and privy marks just to push up sales figures.
Oof. Sad but true.
Hypothetically if the U.S. Mint were to do a circulating coin series commemorating every deceased SCOTUS justice, you'd have to commemorate 103 individuals. To the best of my knowledge, the mint would put out the following over an undetermined number of years.
Philadelphia circulation strikes
Denver circulation strikes
San Francisco clad proof strikes
San Francisco silver proof strikes
San Francisco clad strikes
West Point circulation strikes
Reverse proof sets
Overall, you'd be looking at somewhere in the range of 721 different mintmarks and finishes. Assuming the U.S. Mint doesn't do privy marks, enhanced uncirculated sets, enhanced reverse proof sets, or any other marketing gimmick.
