Not like it matters. Would take a while to get to number 40 anyway.
COVID delayed the series by about a year. It’ll be 2028 or 2029 before we even to Reagan.
I have a few years to wait
Just bought 3 for the price of 2 @ the Mint, thanks for the advice, i cancelled my auto purchase. Just can't see paying 3x cost of silver on these when there is no scarcety....
7 presidents are still available directly from the mint. Van Buren goes on sale next week. $65 each.
I bet a complete set would look stunning in an album.
Still, they'd only be worth melt in all likelihood. Pity.
I wonder how well they will sell at the new price.
The $65 price is ridiculous. If the Franklin Mint were doing them, it might even be less although they would have hooked you into buying the whole series.
I have also found smaller silver medals for decent prices from that timeframe, about 1 inch or so...
As you can see, it is still in the OGP.
Chester A. Arthur pieces from the 19th century are hard to find. He became president after James Garfield died from his assassination wounds. He was not an overly popular figure at the time because he was generally viewed as a political hack who was available for a price. He made more money than the president when when was the tariff collector for the Port of New York.
Once he became president Arthur turned over a new leaf. He supported civil service reform, which was badly needed at the time. He made a half hearted attempt at running for a term of his own in 1884, but he was suffering Bright's disease. He died not long after leaving office.
