    I was going to buy the silver proof set to keep my set current but I may need the money for gas. That's the thing about proof sets though, they will probably be available well into next year. Maybe I'll have the money then.

    If you want it a lot maybe you could sell stuff you don’t want as much?

    Im just saying that because personally I sold a tube of 20x plain 2020 ASEs and used some of the money to buy my 1/10 2022 proof Gold Eagle.

    The W mintmarked eagles are not and never have been "bullion coins". They have always been "collector" coins.

    Still watching the Negro Leagues Unc dollar. Been on sale for close to 6 months now and still hasn't broken 8K coins sold.

    Hmm. Rarity vs. collector indifference; which will win?

    It needs to have both. ;)

    Limited edition proof ASEs always seem to do well because a lot of people collect proof ASEs anyone who collects proof ASEs will need it for their collection.

    Like the V75 and Reverse Proofs with 75,000 mintage. They sell for over the Mint prices to this day so if you bought them you’d be in the green.

    I used to purchase the silver proof sets from the US Mint back in the State Quarter program days, but when they began to pile up in my closet I sold them all at what ended up being exactly the right time. I certainly wouldn't make that kind of money off of them now. With a few exceptions, the same seems true for a lot of mint products: they experience an initial fervent hype upon first release, then interest gradually fades, especially when something else comes along. About a year later, one can sometimes find them for under issue price on the secondary market. Again, that's not always the case, but the initial hype usually produces the highest prices.

    The last mint product I purchased was the 2019 Apollo 11 commemorative. I think they did a decent job with that one. So far, nothing else in their offerings has grabbed my attention enough to seal a deal. We'll see. I would really like one of the Negro Leagues $5 gold pieces, but the high premiums just make me nauseous.

    Me, too. Can't see spending $674 on a 7.6g gold piece. Maybe someday in the aftermarket.

    Privy mark = gimmick

    Twenty years from now, no one will care. It will probably be a candidate for the bullion bucket like most modern commemorative coins.

    If modern commems ever become popular with the African American community it could be a winner. I'm still waitin' on my Booker T's to catch fire.........

    I wonder if the moderns will fizzle out like the classics did, or if they'll just keep cranking them out at whatever price they can make a couple bucks.

    If they fizzle, maybe 50-100 years later they'll become a curiosity like the classics are today. Of course, nobody reading this will be around to care.:(
