Its popularity increased because the 2017 set contained the relatively limited S proof ASE. I think some folks thought that was going to carry over into 2018.

CelticKnot is totally correct IMO. I too believe that the fact it is NOT this year an " S " minted coin, but a West Point Mint coin, also released on the same date as the Proof ASE from the West Point Mint, the EXACT same coin, with no mintage limit,I Always thought the "S" minted ASE in that set was special........... PS, I actually wish the coin was minted with an "S" MM, Looks like the "S" minted coin will be sold later this year alone and in the LESPS too, both Proofs. Our Son's Family are having Our First Grand-Son, He too will have one.....

Well last years was a "W" and it sold out so I guess we'll see if this latest trend continues or not. Well I guess technically the packaging sold out because the ASE is still for sale.

The Mint just decided to stop producing them. That's not a sell out of the product, just a marketing decision by the Mint.

If you call this a sold out status, then every coin the Mint produces is eventually "sold out"

In theory, when the Mint says something either has unlimited mintage or a high mintage limit and then withdraws it from sale early it can catch some procrastinating collectors off guard. This one stopped under 20k...

The 2016 set was the start when it was pulled at around 5600 sold....last sale (4 days ago) was at $400

The 2017 set sold out in minutes at 75k (just under) because it was issued before the S PF was offered at a later date as a single coin

So 75k mintage....and the last sale (yesterday) was at $110...still not bad...all because of the "S"

The 2018 S proof with unlimited mintage was also withdrawn from sale early at 159k

So someone paid $400 for a $50 coin minted in the hundreds of thousands and (maybe) $5 of packaging? Nice.

I'm kidding, of course... I'm no one to talk about that kind of thing.

That one was with an ICG graded coin (ICG PR69DCAM), rather than just in OGP.

Still it's amazing what some folks will pay when they want something. One in OGP sold the day after Christmas. Asking price was $1,285 OBO. OBO was accepted at $1,100

On the phone at 11;59
to place My order, I get a fumbling Newbie and at 12;05 I am told, SORRY, I see the sets are no longer available.... Not a Level Playing Field and as far as competent people, the U S Mint's people leave much tooo much to be desired............

Correct on the "raw" set....didn't see the slab..

The $1100 raw one I just ignored figuring it can't be real even though it is listed as a completed sale...

Wow! Missed this one. I kind of ignored it because of the common W proof AND NO MINTAGE LIMITS...

So probably a packaging issue like the Innovation proof. It most likely will be back as backordered

There's just no way an unlimited mintage product becomes unavailable after just a few minutes so there's definitely some kind of issue going on with these.

I suppose it might also have something to do with the Government shutdown. It may not be business as usual at the Mint right now

Maybe they were so inundated with orders that they decided to just pull it and let things calm down a bit. I guess the hype the 2017 set caused is still going strong.

Shutdowns have no impact on the mint. They're immune as their funding comes from their own fund from sales
