CaliSkier

I wonder if they managed to change(who knows which way they changed or decided) the COA’s on the Army silver medals to reflect they are “Medals” vs “Coins”? Apparently those Liberty/Britannia Silver Medal COA’s, say “Coin”. Now that I’ve thought a little about the 2024 Silver Proof sets being pushed back from today 5/15, back to June 27, I bet they made the same mistake on the COA/packaging, as was done on the 2024 Proof sets. The packaging had the description for the Native American “2023 Maria TallChief $1”, vs the one for the 2024 Native American $1, which should… Read more »

Darek

Most likely new Mint employee who checked all DEI boxes on the application is doing copy/paste on COA’s without checking first if he/she/them is working on medal or coin.

CaliSkier

WRONG! Wrong pictures(2023 Bessie Coleman), wrong designers(Frank Gasparo 2019 Apollo sets), wrong design descriptions(2024 Native American $1’s/PF Set), wrong Mintage limits(2021 1/10th W AGE’s), wrong denomination, as in there shouldn’t be one(medals, a few of them), wrong dates(COA 2014 Great Smoky Mtns), wrong finish/ Dies(Unc/MS VS PF 1999 $5 &10 W Au Eagles) as well as many, many others I’m sure? I know nothing’s perfect, however at the prices being charged, they should be much closer to perfection, IMO. It’s not as if they don’t know what to look for, haven’t any examples to show or work/learn from or “just… Read more »

CaliSkier,

That unobtainable-from-the-outset coin, the 2019-S Enhanced Reverse Proof ASE, was released during a period of especially ubiquitous and hence overwhelming bot employment by the usual array of the “Big Buyers”. It was in fact these relentless bot machinations that managed to serve as likely the most significant motivation for the Mint to establish the ultimately successful bot defense for its sales website.

Rick

And CaliSkier got through that fateful day for one! Cali?
I do believe I overheard that you have one of these gems from the Mint?
Regardless Kaiser I’m pleased to hear that at least something has been done to defend these so called bot shenanigans.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,

I believe it ranks as a not so minor miracle that anyone other than the usual “coin gobbling behemoths” got through to the Mint in order to procure one of those almost instantaneously scarce numismatic beauties that fateful day. Other than the shouts of sheer joy proclaimed by those very few extraordinarily lucky ones among us, the only sounds emitting from the rest of our little brotherhood of collectors was the gnashing of gold-testing teeth and the rending of never to be completed coin folders.

E 1

2024 Silver Proof Sets were scheduled for release today but have been pushed back.

$130.00
This product will be available for sale on June 27, 2024, at 12 noon (ET).

Wow. 42 more days until they ship from the mint. Those presale FDI silver Kennedys I purchased will be a while. Also, silver at $29.32. Bam!

REB

This is the second delay on the Silver Proof Set. It was originally supposed to be released on April 23. Also, the proof Buffalo got pushed back to June 13. I got an email in the past week that touted both for May release. I guess not.

The L&B Gold lost 15 more coins. How low can they go?

Rick

REB @ L&B, Wait until the Mint starts to ship them(on 5/25 +/- ?) Then look out. There will no doubt be Mint cancellations due to CC expiration/other CC issues…Then come the(slabber-69) returns in the 2-3 weeks following shipping…Watch that coin at the Mint site(Cali)… My next question is this; 1) Will the Mint allow the CC rejects be sold to the “notify me” customers? Yes I think so… 2) Will the Mint allow the returns/rejects to then be sold to the “notify me” customers? Yes I think so…But wish that they would NOT–If they kept the returns to themselves(for… Read more »

REB

I got notice of shipping this afternoon on the L&B gold. It’s in Dallas now with delivery on Saturday.

Rick

REB
Looking forward to hearing about how it looks ‘in hand’.
Darek and I ordered the Silver Medals along with the Gold 1st day. You and AK ordered the Gold only? Wonder if there’s a reason/difference in how they’re shipped with/without Silver?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,

I like your positive-minded ideas for the ideal disposition of the coins returned to the Mint for credit card failures and less than 70 gradability, but I also agree with your supposition that none of that optimism will be realized.

John Q. Coinage

Zzzzzzzzz….. too much $ mint is really mad

John Q. Coinage

Appears no demand or high sales for Proof AGE, price is = DEMAND DESTRUCTION…..Cag would be pleased, us no…..BYW Ag move % wise is strong last few months….

AKBob

I wonder who’s running the US Mint? The only thing that’s looking good today is Golds back to almost $2400 oz and Silver is almost to $30 oz!! I’m loving this as I’m selling my Silver and it’s been going very well! Over $17K in sales so far!! I haven’t even put a dent in my Silver! Go Silver & Gold!!! Up, Up & Away!! I see Platinum is staying higher than Palladium. I’m very happy I sold my Palladium when it was at the higher $ per oz!!!! I feel badly for those that are stuck holding “the bag”!!… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

AKBob,

The going rate for both gold and silver is quite plainly a two-edged sword. Your collection obviously increases in value as the spot prices of the two precious metals continue their rise; simultaneously, however, any purchases you wish to make of same to add to your collection will set you a bit further back with each upward tick.

AKBob

shoot, I didn’t finish my last Post, I guess I accidentally hit the Post Comment box! Grrrr!!!! Anyways, I was going to ask others here if they think the L & B Coin/Medal will be delayed. Has anyone heard of anyone (Advance Releases) getting them yet? I’m starting to get impatient. They are spending too much time stamping out frickin quarters that hardly anyone even cares about! I’m tired of ALL the different quarters! Who is even collecting these now? There’s just waaaay tooooo many quarters now and they’re going to be minting more and more and more and for… Read more »

DAVESWFL

I was in love with the quarters when they were HUGE 5 ouncers!!!! Nowadays the itty bitty ones just are too busy. And too many – would have been better IMO to only have ONE design per year and really focus on that person – especially in the schools.

AKBob

DAVESWFL, I couldn’t agree more with you. You stated more eloquently what I was trying/attempting to say without dishing on quarter collectors. I was NOT saying anything bad, or at least I was trying not say anything bad about the quarters (collectors). There’s nothing wrong with collecting quarters at all, I just think too many designs! Like you said Dave, one design per year would be excellent, especially after the Statehood and National Parks program. I too love those hockey pucks, 5 oz, Quarters. i prefer the bullion examples much more than the P mint marked ones that you can… Read more »

REB

I agree. One, or maybe two, quarter design(s) per year. More than that is too much.

Kaiser Wilhelm

AKBob,

I’m just going to interject a quiet little “I like quarters because they’re relatively affordable”. Then again, if the Mint starts making those out of aluminum I will gladly join your chorus.

2023-0329-01
Major D

I agree with you Kaiser! And even with all the stuff I buy I still get a thrill when I receive a great-looking shiny brand-new coin in change. Speaking of which, I just started getting 2024 cents, dimes and quarters in change! I’m still looking for the nickel.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Major D,

Once again I am not simply a voice in the wilderness, thanks to my Coin Compadre! I too enjoy a shiny surprise such as I may on occasion encounter in my neighborhood travels; always feels like a big winner to me.

AKBob

Well, low and Behold, My Liberty & Britannia Gold coin shipped. I just received notification it was shipped!! WhooHooo!! I guess someone at the US Mint read my earlier Post, NOT, lol!

Well now I wonder when I’ll get my PR70 from a Pre Sale on EBay. Most likely another month if all goes well! Time will tell!

I’m pretty excited to actually see and hold this Beauty!! ❤️

Well, as always, Good Luck ALL!!!

Darek

Lucky you. Congratulations! I just spoke with US Mint CS representative and I was told that my 2 medals were shipped today, but gold coin is still in backorder status. I hope I don’t get anyone’s rejected coin when they decide to ship it to me. Ordered both products at the same time within 4-5 minutes on day1.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Darek,

Not likely it’s any consolation, but it’s said one man’s floor is another man’s ceiling.

REB

Same here.

CaliSkier

LOL AKBob DaveSWFL, others! Those darn over done/over cooked quarters! At this point, Congress and the US Mint went to the well, too many times and there are for sure way too many quarters. Statehood and America the Beautiful quarters alone, have 112 different designs! Then, if we add in “Crossing the Delaware”, followed by the 2022-2025 AWQ’s series, there are another 21, giving us 133. So from 1999-2025 alone, we’ve got 133 different designs! Now, add 5 more for the 2026 Sesquincentennial, plus another(up to) 20 for 2027-2030. Then one more new one, beginning in 2031. 159 different designs… Read more »

It’s 737 quarters crazy.

Kaiser Wilhelm

CaliSkier,

Now that is some really beeyootiful math aka “numerismatics”!

If anything this sounds like a damn good business plan. The hobby was going nowhere back in the 90’s and then millions of people started pulling millions of low-cost circulating quarters out of circulation to fill slots in a book. Then the more serious start buying and collecting (high profit for the mint) silver and proof versions for themselves and for gifts. I don’t see many downsides here what-so-ever. Who is getting hurt?

Major D

I totally agree with you Christo. I think everyone needs to remember that this is a hobby first. And, especially for kids, what better way to get them interested in numismatics then by collecting low cost, readily available circulating coins?

East Coast Guru

MD, I agree it’s a hobby first but unfortunately, with cash not being used as it once was has now become a shrinking hobby with a lack of new collectors entering the arena. With the coming of CBDC’s coinage will eventually disappear. Sad to see that day coming.

Major D

East Coast Guru, yes, I do indeed think you’re correct that there will come a day when there will no longer be physical currency. However, just judging by the inaction on phasing out just the Lincoln cent, that day will likely be several generations away. Meantime, lots of coin making and collecting still to be had.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Major D,

Physical coinage exchange today, quantum entanglement transfer tomorrow. I’ll trade you two hadrons for one up quark.

East Coast Guru,

Fortunately or otherwise, that will likely be a situation for future generations to deal with. As is true for so much else, carpe diem.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Major D,

Well spoken indeed. A hobby first and forever, and everything else is frosting.

Rick

Christo, It is a damn good business plan, for the Mint. It is also about Big Government and that is becoming a damn problem. It can and does hurt some people, mainly the collectors pocketbooks. The Mint is just one of too many branches of the US Government. With at least 1600 Mint employees, from ‘V’inny, the P-Mint hubsman, to the Head of DEI, Mr. Fish. The USM is more interested in job growth within than they are about the everyday collector imo. They are self sufficient and that’s fine to a point. They are pushing/marketing/overpricing an unprecedented and ridiculous… Read more »

Major D

Rick, whatever issues us customers may have about the way the Mint operates (and I have my share) the Mint’s numismatic catalog store and its bullion business with authorized dealers are not only self-sufficient (as you pointed out), but also returns profit back to the government. So, by that metric it’s a successful business enterprise so what difference does it matter how many employees that it has or how it chooses to operate? I can’t fault it from trying to appeal to a vast array of customers. Not every product will appeal to everybody. But that’s America. We all get… Read more »

Rick

Fair enough. However last year there was $0 returned to the Government/me & you because of a push for unnecessary job creation within, hence overspending as the Government just can’t help doing, especially on themselves and their buddies–Pork City…
I’m imagining the Mint production facility looking like the worker guys on the side of the road–Three doing the work, and 5 others watching the workers as they pose. Same thing with the DMV all the way up to Capitol Hill–Spend & pose, rinse & repeat…
You point is well taken, thanks for listening to mine.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,

I don’t know where that “$0 returned” figure for last year came from, but according to the February 9, 2024, CoinNews.net report, the U.S. Mint’s 2023 seigniorage contribution to the Treasury Department’s General Fund was $249,000,000.

Rick

TRANSFER TO THE TREASURY GENERAL FUND(dollars in millions)

” In FY 2023, the Mint did not make a transfer to the Treasury General Fund from the United States Mint Public Enterprise Fund.” = $0.00

Rick,

Think of it this way. Ranting, while surely exhausting, couldn’t be nearly as ennervating as raving or, heaven forbid, outright raging. You’re still ahead of the game.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Christo,

I’m more than happy to affix a resounding Sunday go to meeting “Amen” to that!

Major D

Unless you have really deep pockets, you simply cannot collect everything the Mint offers. So, you make choices- you don’t need to collect every possible composition and finish offering, or even every coin. And this goes for commemoratives, too. I’d say slabs for new uncirculated coins is a ridiculous thing. Whatever happened to just collecting coins, and not slabs? Further, I’d say the W minted quarters thrown into circulation was a brilliant idea- it gave everyday collectors the ability to be on a level playing field with dealers for a change.

East Coast Guru

Is there a link showing the gold, silver and platinum bullion sales? Curious as to what the mint has made in bullion so far this year.

CaliSkier

ECoastGuru, here’s the Mints link. The path, if on the Mints website menu is: “ U.S. Mint/About/Production Sales Figures/Bullion Sales”

https://www.usmint.gov/about/production-sales-figures/bullion-sales

East Coast Guru

Thanks Cali!! Looks like gold bullion production started off big and then has sort of fallen off a cliff as the year progresses.

Kaiser Wilhelm

East Coast Guru,

Perhaps thats because the seriously moneyed few who likely buy up most of the gold bullion have by now topped off their vault stashes and are instead turning their attention to upgrading their mega-yachts and customized airliners.

So now the Mint has the Lib/Brit Gold Coin price back up at the current price tier. I don’t know when they put it back, or if it even matters now? For several weeks prior it had shown TBD(To Be Determined)in its place… I’d speculate that the price reappearance does matter. Now that they’re being processed & shipped there will be cancellations from the Mint for various reasons. Then the returns/rejects will come back to the Mint. Then what? That is the question… Pure speculation and selfishly I hope I’m wrong, but keep an eye out for the “remind me”… Read more »

REB

Very interesting. The link is reading sold out but the price change would suggest that they’re selling/have sold/will sell them again. So much for the window?

Rick

You can be sure that we’ll know of any changes that come about with these coins(or any)USM offerings…We have not one, but two Mint watchdogs/fact checkers that visit the Mint site multiple times per day!

Major D

Lots of watchers here

Rick

Guilty as charged!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick and Major D,

I trust neither of one you fits into the “Big Brother” category.

Rick

Well, I do have a little Brother, but I’m otherwise a pretty docile Big Brother my wise friend.

CaliSkier

So the huge quarters total have another 10 coins I’d forgotten about and weren’t part of the enormous total of 737 different quarters.(1999-2031) I forgot to add in the 10 quarters included in the 2017 225th Anniversary Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set and 2018 San Francisco Silver Reverse Proof sets, which now brings us “up” to 747 different quarters, between the years 1999-2031! So,we have a Boeing 747, AKA “The Queen of the Skies”! A bit of history on the “World Famous” Boeing 747! “Since its first flight in 1969, the giant yet graceful 747 has served as a cargo plane,… Read more »

Love the groovy photo. Don’t love the quarter explosion.

Well, on a positive side I’d say the more designs the more chances of error coins.

CaliSkier,

There may well be some truth to the old “They don’t make ’em like they used to”!

AKBob

Rick, I too ordered the Silver medal. I don’t remember if I ordered one from the Mint but I know I purchased one on a Pre Sale on Ebay. A PCGS 70 First Strike, Flag Label. I have a feeling I didn’t order one from the Mint come to think of it, on the topic of the “Remind Me” button for the Gold Lib/Brit I doubt any will be sold. There was a window to order these and cancellations, returns, etc. should not be resold, PERIOD!! The ordering Window has been closed therefore no more orders may be taken. That’s… Read more »

Rick

AKBob,
Ditto, what you said. Let’s see what the Mint does with the cancellations/return coins. Who gets those cancelled/returned coins if the public doesn’t? They won’t melt them, nope. In the old days the Mint insiders would give out special pattern coins and such to High Rank Officials, Congressmen, and the like–How about these days? I say yes!

Christo

I’m well into my 60’s and have been a collector since grade school. I recall things like looking through my dads pocket change and noticing fewer silver coins every day. A couple years later I actually witnessed the buckets of silver coins being sent off to the refiners out the front door of my LCS. No one cared what was in those buckets, only what it weighed. Then the wheat cents disapeared and I assumed then that coin collecting was coming to an end. Even I grew bored with the hobby. Then those pesky state quarters (my God, who is… Read more »

Christo,

What as fascinating story. Tells the tale of the progression of this glorious hobby from the latter part of the 20th through the early years of the 21st century to perfection. I’m only a decade older than you but if I were grading essays at the University of Modern Numismatism you could definitely count on getting an A+ on that one!

Christo

One I don’t recall is ever getting an A+ on an essay. Not in grade school, not in high school. Not in college. So thanks for that Kaiser!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Christo,
You’re very welcome, and let me emphasize it is definitely warranted.

Chris Terp

Welp, my three Army medals came in this week. Pleased how they look blemish-free. Two are gifts and one for my Armed Services Silver Medal collection. Now waiting on Space Force to compete the set.

Can’t believe the meteoric rise in spot silver these past two weeks.

Folks keep buying the 2023 Morgan & Peace silver dollars. Don’t they know Mint going to produce 2024 versions?

Surprised of the little fanfare for this year’s commemoratives. Sorry Harriet Tubman and Greatest Generation, you two missed the COVID buying craze at the Mint.

Have a good weekend All 🙂

Rick

I’ll bet that will look good, your complete set! It would be nice to know what the Space Force Medal will look like?
Some people were hyped on the GG commems, just not enough I guess.

Chris Terp

I hope so Rick. The collection I’m making is the 1oz medal. I only purchased the Navy 2.5oz medal as that was my service branch.

I hope Space Force medal better than their uniforms – they look like bell hops 😉

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris Terp,
You took the words right out of my mouth.

Rick,
Just my amateur opinion, but I thought the WWII Memorial itself would have been a superior visual element on the silver dollars of the Greatest Generation set.
