This set has been the victim of having too many coins issued on an annual basis. I am wondering when the low point will be hit in terms of sales. With the higher price, looks like the 2015 set might not even get to 300,000.

Clad mint sets are like offering a dog cat food, very few will accept them….I stopped buying them the resale & long term outlook, miserable

I still buy them but I think the rising costs of the sets has been a big reason why they haven’t sold as many.

With all of the comments there is one positive with this set…

They have got the Packaging right compared to years ago.

Have them back to 1959 so am not stopping. But it is a nuisance having these large collections of (not) circulating dollars at a high price. Used to be the mint had just decent low cost mint and proof sets, not trying for the flavor of the week. Seemed to work better, but then I’m old school on this.
