From the dismal first day of sales figures of the basketball colorized coins, to the 3-day sales to the 10-day sales figures – collectors have spoken, and they obviously do not like these highly overpriced, privately colored by an outside company, coins. To use a phrase from President Theodore Roosevelt about the coins of his era, they are of “atrocious hideousness.”

Are they really colorized by an outside company? I thought that was illegal

Seth Riesling

They are colorized by LulaRose Company at their factory in MA, & owned by The Clancy Group Company of Massachusetts under a U.S. Mint private vendor contract. The average cost to the U.S. Mint to colorize each coin was about $5 paid to LulaRose Company for the 150,000 Basketball coins in total.

Interesting. Thx for answer

Christopher Williams

Seth always has the answer to any questions we have. He’s the man.

Anyone else notice that in last weeks report “the 2019-S Enhanced Reverse Proof Silver Eagle… fell 88 to 29,823.”

Did 88 coins that cost $65 get returned to the mint while the same ones are advertised for sale on ebay for over $1,000?

Fuzzy math!

sam tweedy

Mike Mezack still the”KING” of coin collecting had a few returns he could not flip!! Understand!! He should have sent them off to Shawn Leflar his new wannabe son from Shop HQ Understand!!!

Alma

The $1000 price on ebay is an imaginarte price not the real price. If the mint sells it for 66 then thats the real price or the mint is being rip off lol. Might as well ask for $30,000 lol. It’s not a $1000 coin or else the mint Will be selling it for $1000. Get it. The mint is already making a profit at $66 cause in reality is only worth melt silver or about $30.

Jake

I don’t think its imaginitive if a simple search for completed auctions shows people are paying that amount. The mint made an obscene profit as always. Profits are not a bad thing. If the Mint offered the coin for $1,000 I bet you could see an asinine asking price of $30,000 on eBay. People can have profitable asking prices, however its only worth what one is willing to pay. Whats funny is, I can only imagine what collectors would say if the mint offered an ounce of Silver for $1,000. p.s. I love the “What If” game.

Alma

Not Even hsn bought the silver colorized dollar. That tells You something right there, if not Even the Big companies that usually Buy all this stuff then the mint is in trouble. And please stop all this signature label nonsense, thats not coin collecting anymore but a serious case of OCD. I don’t care about somebodys Sharpie hand writing on my coin label or COA

Christopher Williams

HSN and Meazck were selling and hawking the colorized coins. He stated on one of the shows “That it has sold out.” I called him out in the comments section of the HSN YouTube video. He out and out lied.
