Good to see that the Mint has finally got the Quantity & Cost right for the Coin & Currency set!
A Mint sellout and a desirable set in the secondary market!

I still like the Kennedy theme ..They was over produced and terribly miss managed.Sorry.

Senior December 17, 2014 at 10:43 pm

Pardon my grammar

I agree that the Kennedy Clad & Gold sets Mintages were too high.

As for the Silver Kennedy set & The coin & Currency sets, a sell-out is the correct mintage. Remembering that the Mint is the only Government agency that Makes a profit.

With the Gold Kennedy the Mintage should have been set at 70,000. This was the number of Gold blanks that they had originally stated that they had ready at issue. This will not sell out by the end of the year and is too high a number to push additional sales to a sell-out.

What happened with the Baseball Silver? A sell-out, yes. But why did it take so long to ID the 3,500 sets left to meet max mintage? Was the backorder list shorter than they thought? Did that many back out? Did someone make an error in counting? Would be nice to get an explanation.

I guess I just have a hard time believing that it took 8 months to figure out the cancelation number.

Senior December 19, 2014 at 10:14 pm

Ronnie,Every Special offering this year has been mismanaged the moderns collectors were hungry for this offering and are get disgusted by being jerked around.They have no clue of base numbers.The coin and currency sets would have sold out days ago had they just had sets avaliable.Collectors wanted this offering.
