    my first comment on the last one was eaten by the mod squad and not spit out? And I thought it was good one about a bad thing. But what do I know ?Will get some of these so with the free shipping it may feel like the old price not but they will get there own bow “>”>”> Good Luck In All You Do <"<"<"

    I used to mindlessly buy the S Rolls.. but no more. I figure if I want em I’ll pick one out of change. The tiny S isnt a factor worth worrying about.

    WOW!!!
    The DOWN JONES is really getting SLAMMED today!

    Bubble popping???

    @Anthony , Actually there was a Flash Crash around 3PM ET that sent the Dow down 1597 points and then a pop back up shortly after that…

  5. Erik H says

    OT – I saw that the RCM supposedly has a new process that keeps the 2018 maple leafs from developing “milk spots”, it’s about time.

  6. Erik H says

    I heard on the news if the Eagles won the Super Bowl that the market would go down today. (Some long term statistic that actually looks like it proved to be true, interesting)

  7. John Q. Coinage says

    Can’t wait for this especially with the USM’s new fairer & prudent pricing schedule……. Becoming a snooze a thon these mint offerings….. Earthling I stopped the “S” madness a year ago…No One Cares- except the people who already bought them, who is filling up an ATB 25c board? It looks like someone thru one of these & hit the WW1 commem model on the nose!

  8. says

    APMEX had a sell on eBay this weekend on the bullion Pictured Rocks. I bought 4 @ $99.20 each.
    Hard to justify a 55% premium for the P puck. I really like this design though.

  9. Black River fox says

    I’ve been to the exact spot shown on the Pictured Rocks coin multiple times, so I guess I’ll be purchasing this coin.

  10. earthling says

    When Bitcoin returns to an appropriate value around 8/$1.00, I might get all wealthy and buy about $50 worth. Nah I’m not that rich…. maybe 40 Bitcoins for $5.00 ? Well if I skip my McDonalds for the Day.

  11. Buzz Killington says

    I think earthling makes an interesting point about Bitcoin.

    The fact that was once so valuable will put some kind of modest floor under its value for the forseeable future. A lot of people will want to say “these 40 bitcoins that I own were once worth $100,000!”. I am not one of those people, but there are enough to keep it from outright going to zero where it belongs.

  12. earthling says

    Well is this a nightmare or what? I never did get into Enron but at least Enron was more real than this thing called Bitcoin. So how does Bitcoin ever go up to $19,000 ? Well PT Barnum said ” There’s a Sucker born ever minute “. Obviouly some people dont know everything .

    Bitcoin $6106.19

  13. So Krates says

    $5 rose gold vs. $10 black gold

    The 1/10th Liberty has a far greater chance of success based on history alone. The chances are about 1 in 20 (5%) that a $5 gold commem will sell for more than issue price a few years out (adjusting for gold fluctuations).

    I think a major reason is that commems are minted (prior to this weird mix) with the traditional gold weight and purity (.242 t. oz/.9 fine) which has become more obscure as we get further away from 1933. Unlike modern bullion, the commems are not stamped with the weight and purity specs. Most stackers want the specs ON THE COIN, not on some COA that may be floating around somewhere.

    It’s not the purity alone but the combination with the other non standard features. If it was, the 24K Buffalo, Maple Leaf, Philharmonic would be the preferred bullion coins. But we all know the 22K Eagle rules the roost. So fineness is not the ultimate determinant.

  14. So Krates says

    @ John Q. – Thanks for the laughs over the last few threads especially on the palooka,

    @ Joe M/variety specialist – Nice rant on infants. Had me laughing when you mentioned cutting out the J&J image, lol. My namesake (Socrates) was reportedly fond of the concept, “Know thyself” or “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom”. Seems like you’ve made some progress on that front. Just a suggestion…when describing the character traits you called A-hole, I prefer to use the term “disagreeable”.

    And BTW the pizza order was funny. Here’s a one I like:

    @ Jerry D. – Many years from now, more folks will recognize that Citizens United vs. FEC was a major mistake. I’m one of the biggest First Amendment proponents you’ll ever meet, but the MONEY=SPEECH theory is not advancing our union. Along with gerrymandering, campaign finance is a root cause of our ills.

  16. datadave says

    On topic (for once) – Why is the P mint puck coming out before the bullion puck on this one? Normally the bullion puck leads out of the gate.

  17. Tom says

    Trump supporters are complicit? Many would argue that term belongs to any Clinton supporter. It certainly defines those that ” hired” a former community organizer with a socialist agenda for no other reason but to make history.
    Electing Trump accomplished one goal. Stopping HER.

  18. cagcrisp says

    @datadave, “Why is the P mint puck coming out before the bullion puck on this one? Normally the bullion puck leads out of the gate.”

    The bullion puck has been on sale for Almost a month.

    What has changed is that the Mint hasn’t put out a tab for 2018 bullion sales on their website…

  19. datadave says

    @cagcrisp – Guess I’m going crazy then. I ordered mine pre-sale and they still haven’t shown up. All of the major dealers on line have shipping dates later this month or early March. I haven’t seen any sales figures so I assumed there haven’t been any sales. Normally shipping begins about 10 days after first sales.

    How do you know they have been on sale for so long?

  20. just another dave in pa says

    The bullion puck has been on pre-sale for a while now but it’s not available anywhere to my knowledge.

    I love this coin.

    Earthling, why the obsession with Bitcoin on a coin blog? I would rather see you complain about the Mint.

  25. Sith says

    Does anyone know why the uncirculated is being released before, or at the same time as the bullion?

  26. Jerry Diekmann says

    Socrates – Yes, Citizens United will come to be known as a grave mistake, conflating free speech with money – unbelievably evil reasoning by the conservative members on the SCOTUS. The Supreme Court throughout history has rendered some really bad decisions – Dredd Scott vs. Sanford in 1857 led directly to the Civil War and the deaths of 620,000 soldiers, and Plessy vs. Ferguson in 1896 led to 58 years of sanctioned discrimination against blacks. Looking back on all three of these horrible decisions, it is still hard for me and many others to understand the reasoning of supposedly knowledgeable men that went into these appalling decisions – all of them were unconstitutional. And we must never forget that legality is NOT the same as morality.

  27. Buzz Killington says

    @SK —

    Where would you stand on a Campaign Finance system where there are no individual limits, but like now, there is 100% disclosure and transparency for all donations?

    It is a difficult balancing act, and I don’t know that I have the answer.

    My small consolation is that money is now more often a byproduct of enthusiasm for a candidate, rather than the cause of it. Our current president spent almost no campaign money, and had almost no campaign money spent on his behalf, compared to his opponents, both in the primary and the general, whose outspending of him was all for naught.

    When the only game in town isn’t 30 second TV spots anymore, money isn’t as important of a variable as it once was.

  28. says

    As far as the bullion Pictured Rocks….yes, the major dealers have had them for sale for awhile, yet the delivery date keeps changing it seems…from 2/19 to mid March. I am always hesitant to buy when the expected delivery date is a month out as silver may go up or down. However, like I previously said APMEX had a great price…under $100 last weekend. I still have no idea as to when they may ship, but at least I feel comfortable with my locked in price.

    I mean no disrespect to anyone, but why are some of you concerned as to whether the bullion or P version is actually going to be delivered first?

  29. cagcrisp says

    @datadave ” So is it going to continue?”

    Yes…

    I think regulators will look at it and Maybe do something about it. Traders like volatility. There’s always two sides of a Trade…

    …And…Now that I know what the game plan is, I can see what is going on an adjust to it…

  30. Erik H says

    cagcrisp, not too long ago you thought Bitcoin was a good buy around $15,000 so I guess it’s even better now?

    @Erik,”not too long ago you thought Bitcoin was a good buy around $15,000 so I guess it’s even better now?”

    OT…
    I have been Very Negative on Bitcoin specifically (not crypto in general).
    That being said, IF I could purchase THROUGH my BROKER, I WOULD be a buyer in the $15k area for a Trade…

    Here are comments I’ve made about Bitcoin (from oldest) :

    1. “That’s impressive that we have the liquidity to do that. Look at what happened to spreads on Bitcoin last week Without liquidity.”

    2. “We are moving to a cashless society and crypto appears to be A way to go. I just don’t think it will be Bitcoin…”

    3. “The bravest ones are buying Bitcoin, but that is very risky. It would be better if anyone with current Bitcoin profits moves them into rare coins.”

    I also commented one time to Dustyroads that the way to play Bitcoin would be on the Short Side…

    NCM

    You’re absolutely correct about me having an obsession about Bitcoin. I think as Coin People we’re all interested in the concept of “value “, aren’t we ? What is it that makes an old Coin worth $35,000.00 instead of it’s face value of $20.00 ? Why is one coin worth 5X another Coin just became it has a few less scratches than another? And why is this one worth 20X just because it has beautiful Rainbow Corrosion on the edges?

    Value has always intrigued me. Bitcoin is the ultimate case study of “value”. Here is nothing but a unit of Computer Memory initially used to do untraceable Drug transaction on the “Dark Web”. It had negligible value when first created ( maybe 6 cents ?) , but zoomed up to $19,000 ?

    Value of anything, is the ultimate concept in a Materialistic World. Once you move beyond Air, Water, and Food, what has ” Real Value” ?

    Bitcoin?

  34. Achmed says

    TomP. in Va says

    The proof Buff went from back ordered to currently unavailable again. ???

    Seems to me the mint wanted to do somebody a favour. This morning (6th of february it was listed as “Backorder” and available on the 5th!!! of february) the mint is just kidding customers. And if it is going on to produce bullion proof coins in years after the year minted on the coin it is going to loose customers.

  35. earthling says

    Didn’t the US Mint have a period in the mid 1800’s where it was doing Coins from earlier times? If I’m not mistaken weren’t all the 1804 Dollars struck around 1860 something ?

    Of course now the only source for restruck Coins is China or maybe N. Korea . But given the desperation of the US Mint, maybe they will resume that restriking of old Coins. Given the recent reuse of old classic designs, you could say we’re already there.

    So how soon can I get t my own 1804 Dollar from the US Mint?

  36. earthling says

    And I’d be willing to settle for an 1804 Dollar in Gold. No problems there at all.

    Given the legendary status of the Coin, Gold would be Very Appropriate.

  37. John Q. Coinage says

    Earthling I’vs been posting for years the mint needs to reissue some classics, we’d go NUT$…..but we get… Priests……Wayward Biys (& gurls…) Girl Scouts….. Lion’s Club (!)…..no timely JFK 100th….lat WW1 coin… imagine a ‘classic proff set” Silver center cent….. draped pole large cent…. 2019 2c piece! 20c Piece……. 1792 1/2 & 1804 dollar, with a Brasher Dabloon & a 1933 $t Gaudens…….we can wish…….

  38. Buzz Killington says

    @earthling —

    You are starting to make a breakthrough, talking about issues of value, but you’re just scratching the surface.

    Of what value is clean water to drink? Elephants living in the wild? Monarch butterflies? Having a million other creatures and great natural beauty across our planet?

    If you take these things away, I think we would find it hard to get excited about the designs etched on our metal tokens.

  39. NCM Collector says

    Coin and medal sets go off sale on Tuesday 2/20 at 3 pm Eastern. The Mint sometimes posts their sales figures by that day & time, sometimes not. I expect a rush on the last day but it would be nice to have one more week of sales data before pulling the trigger on a purchase.

  40. earthling says

    John Q

    I’m totally on board with US Mint reissues. I don’t mean just recycled designs . I mean reissue the Coin as it was way back when.

    I already have my 5 – 1913 V Nickels so I dont really need those. 😉

    But an 1804 Dollar, 1793 Chain Cent and a fully struck 1921 Peace Dollar would be X L N C .

    Metals used aren’t really critical… Gold, Platinum, Palladium , whatever.

  41. Tinto says

    I wouldn’t mind owning a 1794 Dollar reissue from the Mint . in fact I wouldn’t mind owning the real thing even in AG condition ..

  42. datadave says

    @Steve – On the delivery of the bullion versus P pucks I don’t really care which comes out first but the fact that the bullion puck has been delayed possibly signals something is going on. Not sure what, but it could be production problems of some type. I guess we will see if they ship the P puck immediately. For those who like to think the Mint is a smart evil genius, maybe they are doing this on purpose to boost P puck sales.

  43. Tom says

    Newly minted 2017 Gold Proof Buffalos are once again available. Get ’em while you can. Or wait for the next batch or the next batch or the next batch…….

  44. Larry says

    How do you know the mint is minting 2017 Buffalos? I thought legally they can only mint coins in the same year as the year on the coin. Why would the mint make more 2017 coins anyway? Why not just mint 2018 coins? This makes no sense to me.

    I’d opened my ATB quarter rolls series a couple weeks ago, because their count reached 40 designs total, enough for the design series to be put in individual $10 quarter rolls. The quality of the D were good and the P were not with discolorations and staining on many of them. Not sure if the difference is management, machinery or labor skills. These were the ones directly from the Mint with a substantial mark-up price. I’ve not opened the S rolls of these quarters yet, since that series was a ATB late starter, not yet at 40 designs. Wondered if any of you have noticed that the Philadelphia mint has lower quality standards/capability compared to the Denver mint.

    Buzz Killington asks, “Where would you stand on a Campaign Finance system where there are no individual limits, but like now, there is 100% disclosure and transparency for all donations?

    It is a difficult balancing act, and I don’t know that I have the answer.”

    Agreed.

    I would be all for a system where there are no individual limits on actual speech, i.e., one can stand on a soap box and speak all day (even with a megaphone). I’d be against unlimited spending even with full disclosure and transparency. I would propose some combination of mandated free advertising and low spending caps along with a strict time limit to campaign, e.g., one month before the election. Place fewer restrictions on issue advertising not connected to a specific candidate. Most of the politicians themselves wish they didn’t have to be constantly seeking donations and campaigning, and you can bet your bottom dollar that citizens get sick to death of the barrage of political ads that start a year or more before election day – especially in swing states. So if the voters and the pols both don’t like the way it is, then who benefits under the status quo?

    The special interest groups … like the zinc lobby and the Crane paper company.

    If we limited the influence of these two groups on our legislators through spending and donation caps we could more easily implement practical solutions like removing the cent and paper dollar from circulation. This is the reason other countries like Canada can and have done this. We Yanks talk and talk and propose bill after bill, but year after year the common good takes a back seat to private interests. These examples like the penny/paper dollar when multiplied over a thousand industries and issues is why we are falling behind.

    While I most often tend towards maximum liberty, the campaign finance system has become so corrosive that we’ve got to check ourselves before we wreck ourselves.

  56. So Krates says

    @ jp – You didn’t mention the strike quality but the issues you observe may be related to the difference in humidity between the maritime climate in Philly and the semi-arid, high plains Denver atmosphere.

    How do you know the mint is minting 2017 Buffalos? I thought legally they can only mint coins in the same year as the year on the coin. Why would the mint make more 2017 coins anyway? Why not just mint 2018 coins? This makes no sense to me.
    The sense is: If the year 2017 was the new low mintage number the next low mintage number would be less. And I assume the mint does not want that. As long as the year 2017 is below 16592 nobody would regret. And if the mintage for 2017 would be 16590 a new low mintage for 2018 is possible with 16589.

    In other words: would the mint stop selling the buffalo proof 2017 now the mintage would be 15680 roundabout.
    new low mintage would be 15679. Which is about 900 less than in my example before. Revenue less about 1.5 million dollars.

    @Steve – No offense taken. As most of a low mintage release is sold in the pre-sales, these ATB bullion tends to sellout very quickly, This leaves you only with the previous version’s mintage, and sales to go by, for the current released ATB. If the “P” versions are coming out first, I may have a low risk way to determine subsequent demand for the bullion. This could help me determine if I should buy an extra one of two bullion ATBs in the pre-sales time period. Sure its not apples to apples, but…

    And please don’t tell me to buy what I like, none of the designs are inspiring. Maybe if I was a geologist, or into birding, I would be more inspired, but at this point all I care about is mintage’s, and when should I buy more bullion, or maybe even take a hit with the “P” version.

    FYI – for those looking to ‘chase’ 17EL, you should know that PCGS has graded 2,289 Buffalos (1,998 PR70s) across twenty-two (22), that’s right, 22 different labels. Lord only knows how many NGC and ANACS have graded.

    Beautiful coin, but not worth the ‘chase’.

    It’s so saad , what the Mint is doing. Whatever it is they’re doing.

    Seems like a crew is down below decks on a sinking Titanic drilling a bunch of holes in the bottom. Now what…. why…. how …….. ?

    My Guesstimate for Launch Day is 23,750

    I’m tempering my Guesstimate for Launch Day because :

    1. I’m waiting 24 hours until the HHL is Lifted and I guess a Lot of Dealers will do the same
    2. Stock market Sell Off has Spooked a Lot
    3. Gold is Not Rising, and that generally hurts the Launch of Any Gold Product

    @So Krates, thanks for pointing to the humidity difference between the Philadelphia and Denver mints. So the staining appearance could be caused by not only the management, equipment and labor skills to make the coin, but also be the ambient environment in which it is being manufactured. It had appeared to have been a dried residue from a light oil, evident on a couple designs in sequence of their issue and then gone again from subsequent designs in some years. The difference in strike quality between the Philadelphia and Denver mints’ quarters were not notable to me, and I’ll check that more closely.

    JP- IMHO Denver has a better product… usually for BU items, Presidential $ from P were eithr wekly struck or looked as if theplanchets were messed up & also loooked dirty compared to Denver which looked like a crisp strike & luster. I got JFK $1 from both & the D’s were so nice the P’s lucky to find 1 or 2 in roll that would 65+….

    Is it Time for a Membership fee? Like Costco or Sams Club, a Membership Fee just to get exclusive access to special offerings? Maybe even offer a “First Strike Club” where Members can use a fresh die and strike their own Coins. Think about it – a bunch of Dies ( 100 ?) – never used – and you strike your own Coin !

    Of course PCGS or NGC would need to be onsite to slab and certify.
