I'm just sort of thinking out loud as I type this.

i go back and read older ASE posts from time to time. the last time I looked, the (up-to-date at that time) mintage numbers for the burnished ASE appear to be getting lower with each passing year. the sales numbers might also be lowering. is anyone else supposing that the mint might cease making the burnished coin? it's been on my mind. I guess if the mint were to stop making them i'd be sad to see them go, but I wouldn't be crushed by it. there'd probably still be a bullion strike and a proof or two each year, and I guess there's always a chance of a set with a unique ASE included, or a reverse proof or enhanced uncirculated or something. just wondering if any of the community's ASE collectors know anything in particular or have thoughts on it.

The only way they're going to stop making them is if they have too to keep up with the bullion demand. The mintages have to fall MUCH MUCH further before they're no longer a cash cow for the mint.

The Mint makes a decent profit on the W's so I agree that it will continue as a series. Bets are off if the design will remain the same though.

Here is a somewhat interesting article about the W's. Note: the mintage numbers for the later issues are a tad off. Corrected numbers below the link.

..and an important point regarding "decreasing" numbers. The Annual Dollar Set was d/c'd after 2016 resulting in the lower numbers. Add the set and we are pretty constant (except for the new key 2018 W)

It really is a significant decrease over the past 6 years. I wonder if/when they'll take a page from the 2019 annual sets (W cents) and include a bonus item or figure out some other marketing gimmick to boost sales.

I guess it's how you interpret the numbers. I would look at 2014 & 2018 as outliers and the 2017 showing the impact of the d/c'd Dollar set.

We will see how the 2019 does but there were close to 83k sold in the first four days of availability....probably mostly subs.

Keep an eye on that 2018 and see if it holds the "Key" title....
