Yet another set and PCGS example(s) to keep my Sacagawea/Native set up to date. darn my OCD/ADD/Asperger's issues.

BTW, I'm looking for a 2000-D ICG Teton & Rogers signed ICG signature set Millennium dollar.
Remember, what the Dormouse said.

I actually like this idea.
Celebrating the mint's significant anniversary with actual coins that the mint is tasked with making. More so than minting a medal and calling it the mint's anniversary celebration.

Automatic purchase for me. I believe I have one of every EU coin made so far (ASE, Kennedy, 3 Sacs - don't think I'm missing any others in that tally).

The price point for the proof set is 26.95, I cannot see this new set going too much higher than that.

Most likely I'll pick one up.

All of the coins in the special set will be in the usual base metals designated for each denomination for standard circulation quality,
Enhanced Uncirculated finish for the 10 coins in the set is achieved by "using a combination of laser frosted areas and an unpolished field that accentuates design details, creating a unique contrast distinctly different from the mirror-like finish of Proof coins."

I will probably get one as well. Why not?

Other than the ATB, I no longer have any labeled Dansco pages for the most recent modern issues (custom albums with blank pages). Slipping these in would be trivial, but the quarters would probably remain in the OGP for now.

I think the mintage is too high. Keep it to 75k and you would have a nice collectible set

I can't remember too many Cents/nickels/dimes/quarters that have a total mintage of 225k

If the mintage was 75k it would start the 2016 silver medal cluster all over again and be sold out in 5 minutes. Be satisfied with 225k...you might even be able to get one

Good point Foxwoods, I totally agree. I think there should have been a household limit to help make sure HSN (or is it now QVC) guy doesn't buy them all to sell for 300 bucks a pop.
