For reference, the 2017 set, which has the same 10 coins, was $2 cheaper.

I hear you, but that rate (4%) is nearly double the current national rate.

Yes, I know it could be worse. We customers of the U.S. Mint don't pay nearly the premiums that RCM customers do.

Yes, along with price hikes across the board, I suppose.

Am I the only one who finds the current 'modern' coinage painfully boring!? I wish there would be a renaissance of circulating coins (leave bills alone). There should be two rules... Rule #1, no images of people living or dead on circulating coins; and Rule #2 the MAXIMUM amount of time for circulating coins is 20 years (one generation). This will mean that no more politicians make their way onto circulating coinage and there is a clear window of change to keep coinage fresh and generationally representative.
