Attention, U.S. Commemorative collectors...


Quote:
Introduced June 26 by Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV), the Carson City Mint 150th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Act of 2018 (H.R.6221) is seeking up to 100,000 $5 gold coins and a maximum of 500,000 silver dollars in collector qualities of proof and uncirculated for issue during calendar year 2020.

This would be in competition with:

o the Kennedy Commemorative and
o the 75th Anniversary of the End of World War II Commemorative and
o the Plymouth 400th Anniversary Commemorative and
o the Mayflower Commemorative

There may be others at this point for 2020.

It would be pretty cool if they could put up a "pop-up" mint in Carson City for just this release (if it comes to fruition) so they could press the coins with the CC MM.

500,000? They will never sell that many.

The CC is a cool idea, but the WWII and Mayflower are more significant and I am a sucker for coins with ships on them and would like to see more of that. The pop-up mint idea while fun to think about would never happen, would be way to expensive.

I also agree the 500k mintages are way to high for the silver dollars and have been for sometime, the gold should be at least cut in half too

Well, it has been done before

From Numismatic News
Quote:
On Wednesday, June 14, 1989, members of Congress personally did for the first time what the Constitution authorized them to do 200 years ago: they coined money. At a gala ceremony at the east front of the Capitol, leaders of the House and Senate stepped forward to strike specimens of the 1989 Congress Bicentennial $5 gold piece and silver dollar following the traditional first strike by Nicholas F. Brady, secretary of the Treasury.


Coin presses were moved from the Philadelphia Mint to Washington DC so that members of the Congress could strike coins for the Congress Bicentennial. They authorized this with PL 101-36 just a few days before the event.

Would the Congress authorize the same for a CC Mint striking? IMHO very doubtful as it wouldn't have the same PR opportunity

True though its a bit different moving from Philly to DC for the publicity of congress

SF isn't insanely far if they could spare one, but the real problem is who would go? Carson City has a very small population and I can't imagine a whole lot of collectors traveling for that when most don't even like to travel to major shows now a days

The thought of a pop-up mint was pretty much a joke on my part, but if it happened collectors (including myself) would go nuts for something like this. I don't think it would be
profitable for the mint but talk about a shot in the arm for numismatics.

On second thought, the big guys would ruin it for everyone. Disregard.

We've seen Kennedy (both of them) and WWII before. Plymouth and the Mayflower seem more or less the same, and significant enough to warrant a piece for either or both themes. I'd welcome a CC commemorative and it would appeal and draw attention to the hobby.
Working on: Franklin halves (now complete!), Peace dollars (three to go), US type (Bust era), and just started Chinese pandas.

I would be interested in coins with a CC mm.
