Only almost $89 per ounce of Ag, what a deal! By ‘what a deal’ I obviously mean for the mint. I’ll let those gullible folks that feel they can’t sleep without adding this to their collections have these. Biden keeps crowing about how his ‘bidenomics’ is bringing prices down, down…I guess he hasn’t spoken with Gibson lately!


I have all the others so I guess I have to get this one. I’ll try my best and wait till Spring and get it for less off eBay? I’m a collector, it gives me anxiety knowing I’m missing one from my collections. I wonder if they have a pill for that?
Did anyone figure out why Kaiser left?


Husker, No need to ever apologise for being a collector. I collected all of the 5 oz. ATB coin series and had to take a few Alka-Seltzers when clicking the ‘purchase’ button, so I know how you feel. Myself, I always like to buy from the mint so I know someone else hasn’t had them graded ( like Magic Mike). As far as Kaiser, my theory why he left is because he sees how the political train is running and doesn’t want to be around when Trump regains the WH. He is most certainly a Trump hater, which is his… Read more »

I predict Xi and putin will be president and vice president, although, Iran is gaining in popularity. So could be an MBS Iran united emirates of America. I can see the distaste for trump, but I find it funny that those that hate trump can’t see how biden is just as bad or worse. Now that Isreal is in the news the division begins anew and even democrats are fighting each other which side to take. Remember, America didn’t join ww2 to save the jews and do the humanitarian thing, it joined because we were attacked. Although we did send… Read more »


MCCGA (Make Coin Collecting Great Again!)

I think his wife got tired of proof reading his posts.

Dazed and Coinfused

Some hero swooped in and made it a personal mission to eradicate all things evil and rescue the damsels that didn’t ask for help. Always had to have the last word and always had to be right. Bunch of ultimatum and join or die rhetoric. Attacked his own allies if they didn’t follow his path blindly. I kinda miss major d and his info, but not his passive aggressive bite his tongue run to mommy approach. But I miss Keiser a lot. Had a way of getting conversations started and lot of personal history of world War and foreign affairs.… Read more »


I kinda miss major d and his info

I really miss Major D. He was the most knowledgeable person on here about coins (though Seth might be close). Major always answered coin questions with something I did not know. That’s not the case now.

Oh well, please resume your hot political takes, gentlemen.


Normally check this site daily and would enjoy Kaiser need to comment on every article. Sometimes I felt as if he was having conversations with himself using multiple names. I come here daily and really want to know what people think about this coin or that one. I sometimes use the opinions here in deciding which new coin series to start collecting. I do enjoy collecting and learning as much as I can retain. If I make a profit and am not losing money all the better. I lost enough money overpaying for coins when I first started collecting. Anyway… Read more »


I’m a “frequent listener, sometimes caller” on here. I probably check the site once or twice a week. I generally follow the stuff I collect (precious metals proof coins) most closely. I’ve been collecting for over 50 years and more seriously for the last 35. The only thing I ever sold was my old Whitman penny folder. I’ve regretted the sale ever since. I’m a hardcore collector with no interest in flipping and/or speculating. Guess I’ll leave those activities to my heirs.

Happy holidays to you as well, Husker.


Nice post Husker. I’m like you, I like to collect coins and just hope they will increase gradually over time. Most of my collections have done just that but the mint seems to have thrown a roadblock up with their recent pricing structure these last few years. I’m very, very selective on what I buy from the mint these days. Hopefully, that’ll change in the coming years. Don’t worry about stepping on anyones toes, we’re adults here (I think). Lol. Happy Holidays to you as well!


us collectors have that addictive compulsion wiring in our brain. It’s controlling it to be interested in better past times, rather than drugs/alcohol. Collecting a (hopefully) appreciating asset isn’t too bad. You think you have it bad? I’m an Australian that’s never even been to the US, yet I’m addicted to collecting US coins. Now that is expensive. Now, getting back to Kaiser. As someone on the outside looking in, that Trump Derangement Syndrome is amazing. Yes, he’s a buffoon … but he’s not an idiot. From a world perspective, what he did to prevent war was amazing. (Hint: The… Read more »

Democrats think they can buy friends and allies. And it might work for a while, but then another family moves in and they offer more and suddenly America loses a friend. I know, carrot and stick. But also think, both methods work, just not all the time. Americans are doomed. The New generations are self hating and will give away the farm to prove their convictions and to clear their conscience. Cutting off the nose to spite face kinda thing. They aren’t patriots and if you live in a squad area you are actually an enemy of the US. They… Read more »


Yeah, and it’s not just restricted to the US.
I send my kids to two of Australia’s most expensive/elite schools.
My son has just finished his final exams, though went in to sit them, with three universities already offering him positions in courses – so I guess that’s what I paid for.

my daughter’s school however has definitely caught “woke”. The attached picture is from an exam which she got wrong.

Not happy with where this is all heading.


I choose b. Because I was born that way.


I have to say they’d probably expel me if I were a student today. Well at least we’ll have AI to run the world because ‘students’ will be trying to figure out whether they’re boy/girl or trans for years to come. One of the reasons I’m heavily invested in AI stocks.


Daniel, You are correct when you say collecting US coins is expensive. All of us are faced with paying higher premiums for any Ag or Au coin we’re interested in and you’re forced to pay additional shipping fees to boot. Is the Perth Mint still producing the kilo Kookaburra coin? I have collected a few of these coins over the years but haven’t seen them for awhile. I always tell folks the quality and finish of Perth Mint coins simply can’t be beaten. I haven’t been to Australia, yet, but hope to visit and maybe find some of your exotic… Read more »

Let’s see. A Harriet Tubman paper bill more than last year, which is still available, but $20 more. I got set last year as I missed the quarters and thought first year is usually collectible. But I don’t think a women’s series will do well. Liberty is ok, as long as she isn’t in black face like the 2017 coin. But historically, women are spenders so if they have a quarter it usually is to unlock carts at Aldi, let their kid ride a cheap ride outside the store, buy stale candy from machine at grocery store, or get a… Read more »

Why they didn’t include morgan and peace I have no idea. Or even the palladium design in silver. Seems like all denomination coins should be part of the set. Not just typical pocket change.

Domenic Vaiasicca

The set is no longer special or a must have. All the coins are available in other releases. Once they made the “s” dollar available separately this set became unneeded. Hardly a limited edition anymore other than its look. It would have to include a “only in this set coin” to make it special.

Dazed and Coinfused

i think the only thing that this set offers is that they are silver pressings and not clad or copper like the original issues. oh wow, no penny or nickel in the set. so yeah, no reason to get these other than to have the quarters as a mintage of only 50k in silver. that and the women quarter from San fran is only available in the 3 coin set

Seth Riesling

Darrin Lee Unser, I beg to differ with your “ad” promoting this U.S. Mint silver Proof set as “…unique nature of this premium product…” There is NOTHING unique about this product at all in fact!, as all the 8 coins in it are available separately alone or in a number of the silver Proof sets offered earlier this year. And, the packaging has been downgraded to a cheap cardboard box (it used to be a very nice presentation holder with a hard, large plastic lens inside holding all 8 coins, but now they are all just in simple capsules that… Read more »


Finally, someone discussing coins. Thank you. Seth

Seth Riesling


Thanks. Hope you get all the numismatic items you want/need for the Holidays.
Happy Collecting!



It appears the Mint is neither interested in “value” or collectors, only profit and favored dealers. 🙁


You’re spot on Seth. There is absolutely nothing special or unique about this set and it comes to you in a cardboard box. Of course, if one likes to pay the government almost $89 per oz. for Ag, then this set is for them. On a business channel there was just a segment on the WH doubling down on ‘price gouging’ by businesses, can you believe it! Looking at next years coin release schedule, I won’t be buying anything from the mint until early summer.


I already have them except for the dime and half dollar. I think this is for people who missed out earlier this year.
