    I wait a year or so and pick it up a little over spot.
    This is the bait the mint uses to boost their sales...
    Go back look at all the offering just on ASE's alone check issue price,check market for year 1 then ,year 2 and so on.... none have held a steady value,many have lost quite a bit of their value. That those purchased on the after market were under water costing the true collector lots of money....but most of all cost the collector a loss of interest as the investment they made in their collection has now been reduced .
    I am not only speaking of the monetary loss but loss of interest in a hobby that at one point A true pleasure in their lives.
    I haven't purchased anything from the mint in over ten years and have no plans to get caught in the granny bait dash.....not worth it at the end of the day you just paid 3 to 4 times for an oz. of silver.

    Sucker bait for those that wish to keep their sets complete. I quit playing that game a few years back.

    Before long, ordering ASEs from the mint will be as complex as ordering a coffee at Starbucks.

    The last Mint product I bought from the Mint was a 1984 proof set.
    The last Mint product I bought from ANY place was an ASE from the early 2000's
    I've sold off all that stuff, probably at a loss.

    Myself....gave up on that game of paying way over melt for a date stamp and strike style. I've kept 2 of them a 2000 proof and the 2008 unc rev 07 in 70 .
    The rest were dumped or traded... oh I forgot I do have the 3 coin 10 year set now worth melt.
    The US mint is stale they over think a process that has been working perfectly. For 100's of years!

    Pretty cool, but like others state, it's just not worth the price. it seems that most dealers buy these to try to get the MS70 grade and that's about it. The MS69s will be available all over Ebay.

    I'm not sure they'll last that long.

    @cpm9ball I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't already have his order in and shipped to a plastic factory.
