Good. That's one more for me.
@dcarr to make them. He's probably going to make them anyways, and his would look better as well.
Be my guest. You can have mine as well.
If there is a 2021 dollar of any mint, DC will not strike any. IdI love to have a 1878-O Morgan, but he won't strike one because Morgan Dollars were struck in 1878. That's how he stays out of the SS's sights.
Ahhh. Gotcha. An 1878-O Morgan would be marvelous.
Make a coin worthy of my money, and I'll buy it.
But look on the bright side. At the least the U.S. Mint might be the first to make a 1921-CC Dollar ... before the Chinese.
Yes, but too many of them are not coins. When it comes to coins every one should be available to the public without a premium. I agree that the proof coins and mint sets should carry a premium. But, you should be able to dollars and half dollars without buying large quantities of them. Or, the mint should just quit making them.
I bequeath mine to you as well.
And I’ll take it. I honestly hope many others feel the same as you about this offering as it’ll cut out some competition.
If they did they would put them in such large minimum lots that big business can make bigger money. The best thing is for those who don't want them to treat them as if they were just trinkets. Do nothing to draw attention to them and other ballast being pushed on us by the mint.
You’re overthinking this. There’s no need to try to make this offering make sense to everyone. If you’re a medal collector and want one, then buy it. Same goes for the “true” coin collector. Your collection is what you make of it, and I think collectors today are branching out into several niche areas of the hobby. But make no mistake. This will NOT be a Franklin Mint product. Sure, it’s not the same exact thing as that original run of Morgan dollar mintings, but it will still be a legal tender Morgan dollar minted in 2019 by the US Mint- FAR from a token.
The Mint doesn’t push anything on us. Don’t want it? Don’t buy it. Simple as that.
What you say is true, Ike. I'm disgruntled because after more than 70 years of collecting I see the hobby being directed by big dealers. Just one example, I can't continue my half dollar collection unless I pay a premium. Otherwise, yes you are right.
