I consider myself fortunate not being excited in relation to the American Innovation series since I have more than enough coins on my annual must-have list already.
Hi Kaiser Wilhelm,
I am with you on this one. I have too many enrollments already. And I have been slowly reducing their quantities to one coin/set each, starting in 2017. All of mine are quantity one now.
Hi Jeff, I now wish I had possessed your acute foresight and initiated a reduction of my annual Mint purchases as early as you did. Unfortunately and to the contrary, I instead ramped up my purchases beginning in 2018 to the point where I was acquiring up to four units each of some coins and coin sets by 2020; hoarding, anyone? For whatever reason I believed the 2020 “Covid Year” would somehow translate to higher long term values for all of that year’s coin releases. Last year I did drop down to three per item and this year to just… Read more »
I only purchased the Maryland American Innovation one as that’s where I hang my hat. I was borne, raised and spent most of my working life in Washington, D.C., wonder if D.C. will get an American Innovation coin? Hot air is kinda ubiquitous to every state and national capital though 😉
I honestly can’t remember now, Chris, whether or not Washington, D.C., was allotted an America The Beautiful Coin. If it was, then I think it’s quite likely it will also receive recognition on an American Innovation Coin, in which case I will be very interested to see what Innovation from The District of Columbia will be celebrated on it.

Yes, I can’t remember if the Federal City had an America the Beautiful coin too Kaiser.
Enjoy your weekend.
Thank you, Chris, and a great one to you also. The crisp fall weather is beginning to make its appearance felt with temperatures dropping now and leaves doing likewise soon. Off with our AC, and up with your D.C.!
well if it gets a coin it should be for the invention of the state of new columbia.
yeah, legislation for that is still pending, but presumably DC wouldn’t come out til the end a few years from now anyway, so there’s time.
Well, c_q, that would certainly be one heck of an innovation!
Where is Old Columbia c_q? 😉
Yeah, if D.C. does do a coin will be last in line or would American Soma, Guam, Puerto Rico?
I can’t say I really know anything in regard to your first question, Chris, but if the District of Columbia aka New/Old Columbia ever does attain statehood status the new entity will surely be listed alphabetically among the other fifty states and no longer have to be grouped with the American Territories.
