So not "minted to demand" which I guess means that the dealers will suck this one up by the thousands and spit it out later

If you do not get one on day one just wait a few months and you might save some money

I will probably buy one when it is released. I do not mind paying full price to have it sooner.

As for it selling out on day one, only if the bigger speculators pull their usual stunts.

Orders are limited to ten sets per household across all sales channels, including bulk purchases, for the first 24 hours of sales after which the Mint will remove the limit. The maximum mintage is 200,000 units.


The typical stunt is to get all employees, friends and relatives to order the household limit on day 1.

If they really think it will be a hot item, in the past some have even offered to pay a premium to anyone who orders and then ships the unopened package to them. Essentially, they're paying you to order for them.

However, I don't think any stunts will be in play. The limit restriction only lasts for 24 hours and the mintage is pretty high. They can probably afford to wait the 24 hrs and then order all they want.

Basically what BadDog said.

I do not see this as a hot one for the speculators, but I have learned to never discount crazy.

Too bad they can't make the three non-silver coins silver, now that would make a special set.

I want only the dollar and half from his set so I'll just get the singletons from the 'bay.
Working on: Franklin halves (now complete!), Peace dollars (three to go), US type (Bust era), and just started Chinese pandas.

Yes! I have been wanting that in the regular silver proof set for years. Unfortunately it is not legal for the Mint to make them without congressional approval.

I only want the dollar, PCGS graded, but I'll probably purchase the entire set to keep the mint/proof set string going.

Do you plan on buying them graded? If not just wondering if itíd be more economical to buy the set and sell off what you donít want.

I only want the half, so will likely wait and buy it on eBay eventually.

I want a graded dollar and half (for my proof runs), and an ungraded dollar (for an album with proof and business strikes). Not worth buying the whole set just for the ungraded dollar; nor to bother getting them graded myself.

So itís essentially the same coins, packaging and mintage as last years 225th anniversary EU set ($29.95) but with a reverse proof strike and $54.95 price, right? Am I missing something? If right then itís a bit of a bummer, at least for me.

Well, this set contains silver coins, unlike last year's EU set. That accounts for at least some of the price difference.

Compared to the 2018 Silver Proof Set, it costs $5 more.
