I purchased one when they came out. (Probably at the pre-issue price). Do you (OR anyone else) know how long after 2016 they were available and what was the cost?
But this is one time when they are actually operating like a legitimate business & attempting to minimize their loss. They are doing exactly as a real business would do to clear out unsold inventory. (De-trashing, as they put it, would actually cost them additional expense.)
Kudos to them! (This time! )
No, they're doing what they have to do with unsold inventory, while at the same time throwing the dealers a bone. Works the same way in the real world.
Now the dealers have to keep the inventory & they may liquidate them however they like. The Mint doesn't have the added cost of separating them out for recycling (de-trashing, as they call it).
If the public didn't by them directly from the Mint when they had the chance, they're certainly not going to buy them from a dealer for a strong markup. So we'll see how that goes. The Mint & the dealers should be happy, & the public who didn't buy one already will have to wait & see.
You can get a discount from them too if you want to spends millions a year
They were available through the end of January 2019, cost $54.
