  5. Anthony says

    I wonder what the sales prices of the 2019 Apollo 11 commemoratives might be! I suppose a lot will depend on just how well the 2018 commemorative programs will sell at the higher pricing.
    One thing for sure, the 5 oz. silver Apollo 11 coin will be (at a minimum) $204.95 ($154.95 as for ATB P-mint, plus mandated $50 surcharge) Given the novelty of it being the 1st 5 oz. silver curved coin, probably tack another $25 to $50 premium on that! So I expect them to be offered at $229.95 to $254.95 (with silver at $17 of course)
    I hope the 2018 clads do not sell very well so maybe we can catch a break on the curved clad Apollo 11 half dollars.

  6. earthling says

    Well at least we’re ahead of the Russians. …. are’nt we……. I hope? They used to say the old Soviets had to wait in long lines to buy Bread. Here in the USA … we only have the price of non essential ” Collector Coins to moan about. We used to wait on line to buy them. Now the lines are non existant.

    We’re truely living the life. 👍

  7. earthling says

    Gavin sez

    ” Officially DONE! ”

    I’m with you on that one Gavin.

    Trying to decide when to pull the trigger on a Platinum Britannia. Or maybe I won’t. Maybe just a Gold one? Or maybe some Silver ones?

  8. Jerry Diekmann says

    I will just cut down purchases from the Mint in 2018 as follows : Zero WW I dollars (ugly, UGLY, UGLIEST) and medals; zero Breast Cancer gold $5.00, and just a couple of the Breast Cancer dollars and half dollars. And my mother died of breast cancer at the age of 45. The Mint is pricing itself out of business. Who do they think are going to be buying these coins? And who cares about low mintages anymore? Each year there are new low mintage coins. Like cagcrisp has said, “More and more gimmicks”. And I believe John Q. Coinage said that collecting coins by year and mint is now in its death throes.

  9. Joe M. says

    The only items I’ll buy this year from the US Mint are the REVERSE PROOF SETS(as many as I can) and the 2018 silver proof sets(at least 5/year). I was going to buy the $100 Platinum series, but I hate this years choice out of the possible choices they provided. If there is a baby on it, I WON’T BUY IT. I got rid of the March of Dimes silver dollar the day after I received the sets. I only bought them for the dimes…which were ALL SPOTTED 🙁

  10. earthling says

    Joe M said “…which were ALL SPOTTED ”

    Joe , I’ve never worked in a Mint …. But have worked in Factories almost all my life. I’ve seen attitudes( mostly non caring with no personal pride in work done) and work ethics ( mostly lack of.. ). I can feel the cause of poor quality of Coins.

    There really is no solution short of outsourcing to a Nation that has Workers with some measure of personal pride in a job well done. I’m thinking Canada? Or Great Britain ( Ireland, Scotland or England)?

    Trump might be the ultimate solution if he can survive the growing coup attempt. Definitely theres a serious fight brewing. Women and LGBT’s against Hetero Men ?

    Whoevers trying to start it is a dark sinister force. Ultimately I’m thinking its from the Mid East or the Far East. It’s bad , whatever wherever it’s from.

  11. Tinto says

    Almost didn’t see the silver reverse proof set for 2018 …. that’ll be the only one I buy, just to have an RP type set, too bad the Mint discontinued the NA $1 C&C set ….. On to the Moon Landing in 2019 …

  12. John Q. Coinage says

    Jerry, I am still date & mint mark collecting but I see the writing on the wall…. the # of ‘collectors’ non speculators investors is falling like Weinstein Bros stock! How many ASE mintmarks do we need on ONE year…. Thw WW1 coin is so off, ergnomics & design are awful crowded …left handed conversion for the ‘o3 Springfiled…..ok…..eyes closed, appears to be a Japanese WW2 helmet……the medal are kind of contrived & where is the Flying Hat on the Spad? US Army Air Expeditionary Forces logo…?

  13. Tinto says

    @Tom

    The Mint must be desperate, they also sent me the email about APE HH limits .. I haven’t bought any high $$ from them since 2014 when I got the last Preamble APE ..

  14. cagcrisp says

    It Appears that even with the stock market sell off the past two days and Another day of a Lower USD, that PMs can’t catch a bid.

  28. cagcrisp says

    @John Q. Coinage,” market off 400pts, correction seed or just a hiccup?”

    Depends.

    Market doesn’t want interest rates moving up as fast as they Currently are…

    17 AN George Rogers Clark National Historical Park 2017 Uncirculated Five Ounce Silver Coin
    PHILADELPHIA (P) 5 oz.

    Is this sold out ? It’s on the remind me list.
    Thanks in advance

  30. cagcrisp says

    @Goat, ” Is this sold out ?”

    Not sold out. Just Currently Unavailable. It has gone CU before….

  31. Einbahnstrasse says

    Wow…so in two weeks, the WWI unc. dollar is only 700 coins shy of the full-year sales of the Boys Town unc. dollar. Doesn’t look like we’re going to get another Low-Mintage Wonder this year. (At least, not on the commem side.)

    Also, @Goat: the 17AN is Currently Unavailable. In other words, we have no idea whether or not a significant quantity will become available later. They might, if e.g. the Mint just ran out of packaging but has plenty more coins on hand. Or they might not, if the Mint is just waiting for the last few returns to be processed before declaring a sellout.

  32. Ron says

    Tinto, I liked the NA $1 C&C set also, I just thought the $1 coin was done nice.
    I may try the RP silver set but the only thing I plan on buying is the Silver ATB set because I’m already into it this many years but I may buy from the Bay after the nightmare of returning them to the Mint last year.

  33. smalltimecollector says

    I hope you will excuse me and allow a question. I’m researching a issue I have with a Pd eagle I bought last year shortly after they cane out from an on-line seller. I bought bu. I’ve been told the grading companies including pcgs are allowing rim damage on 69’s and 70’s. Is this true? I cannot believe the standard (BU) I’ve been accustomed (over 40 yrs) now allows damaged coins. I’m not a label collector, just don’t want damaged coins sent to me when I purchase bu. That is unless I am completely off base, then I’ll have to live and learn.

  34. says

    Earthing – the Man just said it’s moving back to Motor City, you appear to be in the trenches up that way.., report back here in 6 months please and let’s hear your observations

    I’d like to hear if it’s true..,

    I’m pleased to hear that the Man may have gotttn the FDA off their dead ass on some of these aporovals and trial certs, bio techs have been on a tear lately so perhaps we’ll see some advancements in pharmaceuticals,

    It’s a shame the indiscriminate violence in this country anymore, regardless of sex or race, sad state it is..,

  35. mgm says

    smalltimecollector,

    I know the last two rolls of silver eagles I bought (2017 & 2018) have rim damage. It looks like some kind of machine grabbed the coin leaving 4 equal marks on the rim. Another great mint automation…

    MGM

  36. says

    smalltimecollector – that’s been addressed over and over again on this blog since the 2016 Centennial Tributes,

    Enjoy you ‘graded’ $1.2k+ coin,

    Not being a smart ass, though you own it now.., why some of you continue to religiously buy graded coins defies logic, IMHO

  37. So Krates says

    @ Joe M.

    Wow, that’s an impressive list of discoveries! I’m still getting my feet wet identifying known varieties. It’ll be a long while before I even attempt to look for new ones.

    You sound pretty adamant; just curious…what’s wrong with babies on coins?

  38. So Krates says

    Earthling – I wouldn’t hang my hopes on the guy who disdains preparation and thoroughness to restore the work ethic. If anything he encourages laziness (intellectual and physical) by his poor example.

  39. So Krates says

    @ Daveinswfl – Cici’s, Wendy’s and McD’s? Ugggh (especially CiCi’s – blasphemy to pizza). Might I suggest adding just a few half dollars and upgrading to fast casual? They must have some Chipoltes, Paneras, or Chick-Fil-As down there. Your colon will thank you later 😉

  40. Joe M. says

    @ So Krates
    I don’t like the sight of them, the sound of them, and the smell of them. I don’t need a coin that reminds me of something I despise. Yea, that sounds harsh, but I f’n hate babies! I used to buy Johnson & Johnson swabs and cut out the baby’s face on the package so I wouldn’t see it when I cleaned my ears after every shower…LOL 🙂 I even don’t like talking to anyone under the age of 30…my friends call me an A hole sometimes 🙂 I accept it and say, “well, I don’t have any patience for people who don’t THINK!” Credulity, naivete, arrogance, and stupidity is something I don’t waste time with…yea, I’m an A hole, but I do like to help people who want to learn and need help. 🙂 I give clothes, money, and food to the homeless…IF THEY AREN’T DRUG USERS!
    .
    I am in the process of submitting coins to James Wiles that I don’t see in the CONECA Files. I have over 23 years worth of coins unidentified that I am finally able to go through. I have about 10,000 coins I need to look through that I haven’t touched in over 15 years. In the old days, CONECA didn’t have pictures like James Wiles has at http://www.varietyvista.com so I didn’t/couldn’t be sure of the variety I had in front of me. Die markers are helpful, but pictures are MUCH better to help identify a variety. There are fees for attribution/exam of coins and it can be costly if you send in KNOWN varieties 🙁
    James Wiles has made a lot of progress in the past 10 years and VARIETY VISTA has helped me a lot to decide which coins may/are new discoveries. The next batch is (10 maximum allowed at one time) quarters…which will be back soon 🙂
    .
    I am hoping for a BEAUTIFUL coin series from the mint that isn’t politically correct or have dead presidents. My collection is mainly 20th Century Varieties, but I also have a some gold(under 15 oz.) coins and about 200 pounds of silver…junk and collectible coins. I’m selling off about 80% of my collection over the next 2 years and buying silver and what I can from the mint. TOO BAD THEY ALREADY LOST OVER $10,000 FROM ME WITH THE CRAP THEY PUT OUT LAST YEAR AND THIS YEAR!! 🙂 I just hope I can swoop up at least 100 sets of the Reverse Proof Sets coming i the Summer 🙂

  41. cagcrisp says

    USD hitting 37 month Low…

    …Dollar bulls didn’t get anything out of SOTU speech.

    1 down , 2 more events to go Today to effect PMs…

  42. cagcrisp says

    The USD is having it’s Worst January since 1987

    The stock market is having it’s Best January since 1987

    Black Friday October 19th 1987 the Dow plunged 22.6%, the Largest one day Percentage Loss in History…

  43. Anthony says

    Hmmmm…cagcrisp, are you triangulating that we will experience a 2018 Black Monday with the Dow? (Friday was officially “retired” by the NYSE as a day for a stock market crash.) 🙂

  44. just another dave in pa says

    re; babies.

    I agree with Joe M although I don’t like people in general on coins.

    I kinda hope we do go cashless at this point because of coins like the Queen of England and Dead Presidents and Harriet Tubman (if that were to ever happen) and war coins.

    We need trees and birds and sunshine and water and rocks. Nature series seem to do pretty well and they’re not politicized.

  45. cagcrisp says

    @Anthony, “are you triangulating that we will experience a 2018 Black Monday with the Dow? ”

    Nope. Just pointing out a point that Much of the Gains in the Equity markets are because of a weak dollar policy and that can only go on for so long before Something has to give…

  46. Tinto says

    Just saw on another blog the 2018 NA $1 design from the Mint …came out very nice .. … I had forgotten that Jim Thorpe was gonna be the one this year … really too bad the Mint discontinued the NA $1 C&C set since 2017 though they made 225k EU dollars ..

  47. John Q. Coinage says

    SoKrates, your colon will NOT thank you if you give it Chipolte…..a gut buster & has gone up alot in price for their product. I got sick there 2x & have never returned. I still feel like it is the same odds as a street taco in TJ! And with their new (oooh) “queso’ salmonella & e coli can fester like il dulce’s hair. I just inventories some tuff & have way too many ATB $ mint bags, who even care, seems like the same 4,000 collectors buy a bag every time……no one I know if (please correct me…) is collecting ATB by mintmarks, including “S”….not you average Joe or Jill……I have started spending them, they are reel purdy though…….JUst got a “D” mint slabbed 69, BU ’17 HR Medal for total of $24 on ebay, that’s the right price…..

  48. NCM Collector says

    Am I reading Mint News Blog or watching the Emogi Movie? They add nothing to your argument.

    KCSO

    Things are certainly happening in my little corner of the “Motor City” sh💩th💩le . We used to build the little trucks at my plant, we still do, but production is shifting 7 miles north to a former Car Plant. In my current plant we’re supposed to get the Bigger Trucks they currently build in Mexico. Also we’re supposed to be getting a couple New Big SUV’s that are on the drawing boards. Bigger seems to be better.

    Anyway they recently parked one of the Bigger Mexican built Trucks up near the front of the Plant. I guess they want everyone to know what out future holds?

    Good deal. In the next month we’re being showered with Profit Sharing and also some Bonus as a result of the Tax Cuts. I have no complaints when it’s raining moolah!

    Might have to splurge on some Coins! But sorry, Sorry US Mint, I’m eyeing the Britannia lineup, Platinum, Gold, AND Silver !

    😎

  50. John Q. Coinage says

    earthlng enjoy the bounu$ ….no such fallout to most, …..I did get my check & it went up from the cut…$28 ooooh….$56 a month & my helth Ins. up $280 this year = higher deductible, if I et sick I am a tax cut loser….individuals ‘cut’ disappears anyway in afew years Apple & Trump Industries keep it 4EVER……US Mint is not a good value to spend for anything these days…..except the palladium! (bullion…..maybe!)

  51. So Krates says

    @ John Q.- I hear ya about Chipolte. I’ve never had a problem and have read a bit about their e. coli issues. The entire situation does not track normal restaurant outbreaks and is quite suspicious. It has been been posited that their strong and vocal stand against GMOs might have made them a target for espionage. In any case It seems they are now going above and beyond with preventative measures.

    Hmmmm……stick a fork in me, or the USM??? Ponder, as we move further into digital/technological age!!! Reel to reel, 8 track, casette, CD , etc…..eventually something replaces and is better?

Will you be left holding???
