Old Collector / Joe – it is. A coin community is more than like it or dislike it comments about new coin designs. There are so many factors involved, not just love of a coin design but community and ones ability to pass knowledge. Seth has a wealth of knowledge and I value not only your comments but also his. In the world of numismatics / bullion – we can always learn from others and believe you me, I have made my mistakes along the way. When first starting out, I only purchased modern high end gold proof coins – took a bath on them. Love the design or not, I am not a rich man, have earned every cent through hard work and over the years learned quality over quantity / modern proof in limited buys for the love of the design, stack for the future – bullion.

Mouse,

It is immensely gratifying to hear your appreciative, inclusive and above all very warm-hearted take on our little numismatic oasis here; you are indeed a class act! It is in fact the likes of you and Seth and Joe Brown and Joe C and others who are just as involved and committed that make this the collectors’ paradise that it is. Truth be told, I make this web site my first stop on the internet every morning when I open my laptop for the day, and I don’t move on to anything else until I have checked it for new articles – courtesy of Mike Unser and Coinnews.net – and then, quite thoroughly at that, for any further posted comments that may have recently been contributed by the great coin cohort that comes together here on the various issues of days past.

As much as we have to live with it I do not accept that the US Mint has no idea what dates later in the year that any particular coin will be launched. It is beyond me why they refuse to publish the dates for all future coin launches for each year. Back when we had an actual director of the mint (Edmund C Moy Sep 2006 – Jan 2011) a launch schedule for the entire year was published each year. Now that we have these namby pamby gutless SES provided seat warmers status quo is de rigueur these days it seems. Too lazy, inept, or afraid to take any action that might actually exhibit any management capability and/or decision making skills. IMHO

Jim – Well said and I totally agree. My mint, the Royal Canadian Mint does the same, A better business platform would be (for numismatic coins) allowing the consumer to visualize the product well in advance so they can plan – save money if required – to purchase coins that not only spark their numismatic desire but have potential to complete a collection.

Gotta agree .. and those Mint folks probably get paid salary and benefits equal to that of real managers …

jim, Bingo, bullseye and 100% correct. It drives me absolutely bonkers that the U.S. Mint folks can’t get their act together. With their steadily sinking sales volume playing like an ever-descending ticker tape before their beady eyes one would think that they clearly have more than enough incentive to right their ship, now more than ever. But no, instead they dilly-dally with their schedule and only occasionally pop up like whack a moles to make yet another dour announcement of the latest price increase or to introduce the most recent fiasco of a commemorative, or both combined.. Meanwhile, where indeed are some more of the imaginative products like last year’s unexpected limited release San Francisco American Silver Eagle that drove Congratulation Set sales through the roof? To be fair, some of the blame for the bigger debacles falls on the heads of Congress for authorizing products and mintage numbers that… Read more »

Tinto,

The last sentence of your post is absolutely priceless! :>)
