I've really enjoyed this thread, and kudos to Coronet for starting it!

I think we have all gained an appreciation for all of the commems, be it the classics or the moderns, as well as an education on almost all of them. I know there are a few things I learned because of this thread, and truly appreciate every coin posted, and stories that accompanied them.

From the top-of-the-heap high grade examples, to the PO-1's, the blast-whites to the dark-toned, and everything in between, I think we did a great job of presenting the commems in a variety of ways to appeal to everyone.

Like Mox, I really never paid much attention to the moderns, but because of this thread I have picked up a few (not imaged), and plan to grab some more in the future.

On a side-note, is it just me, or have the prices gone up since this thread was started?

----------------------

And for my final entry, my York. Most folks aren't too excited about the York, but the reverse reminds me of playing with Lincoln Logs and those little plastic cowboys and Indians as a kid. Fun times!

One other thing -

Alpha2814 - we wouldn't have cared if you don't have the top registry set, or Ansel Adams quality photos... We would have loved them all the same. :)

Heritage is in the middle of it's 1st of 5 sessions right now, and the prices across the board have been staggering. So many with great eye appeal that are beating both the NGC and PCGS "suggested value", which we all know is high.

I've also followed a few coins that ended up selling for 2 or 3 TIMES the highest bid amount previously, again, because of drop dead gorgeous eye appeal.

Grading is important, but so far the super lovely looks have been at least as important, if not more so, than the technical grades only.

Now don't ask any more questions, Beefer, or I'll blather some more.

Well that was fun!

Thanks everyone for participating. It was great to see so many examples of these classic and soon-to-be classic coins, whether honestly circulated, toned, or blast white. I particularly enjoyed the history behind the coins that people shared, and seeing related memorabilia, reading personal stories, and hearing more about the events commemorated.

I'm glad to see that others enjoyed it as much as I did.

Well, Coronet, you've certainly proved that you don't have to be a forum "old timer" to have a great idea for a thread that proved so great for so many of us.

I don't mind saying it again - Thanks for your inspiration.

So.. this commemorates 100 years of the walking liberty design.


would you classify these as commemorative or bullion?

If you will send me only one - then commemorative.

If you send me at least 10 = bullion.

If it actually alluded to it being the 100th Anniversary, then I'd say commemorative. Even it was something shintzy like 1916-2016.

Well, the Mint doesn't classify the 2016 Centennial Gold Coins as commemoratives, but instead groups them with Gold Coin Programs, which are bullion programs. Plus, the Congress didn't legislate that these coins be minted to commemorate anything. The Secretary of the Treasury authorized them to be minted using his authorities under existing laws.

So, I guess my vote would have to be bullion.

Seems like an accurate assessment to me.
