Also, pictures have been posted for the 2021 Proof Set. The set still has two lenses, with the two quarters in a separate lense.
I figured it would. There is just not much room for seven coins in one standard lens without being crowded.

A private company could produce the same proof set for between $5 and $10 and still make a good profit. It's well past time to turn over operation of the mint to private companies.


I do not want my coins made in China. Sorry, but that is exactly where they would be made if US coin minting were privatized.

That's not the case. Just as private companies operate the government owned Lake City, Missouri munitions facility, the same can be done at the mint facilities. Americans employed by Winchester currently run the Lake City facility, so there's no made in China ammunition for our military. It's likely that most of the same mint employees would elect to continue working as the problems are mostly a management issue. Quality based incentives could be introduced. The mint facilities might even compete against each other for portions of business.

The joys of privatization: Last year, the US Mint used a private third-party novelty coin manufacturer to colorize its basketball commemoratives -- and the top tier grading companies couldn't wait to grade/slab them (even though previously they'd never consider grading the post-production colorized coins from this company).

Bret, I disagree.

Guns are different, there is competition with many manufactures and the market (the military) benefits.

However, there could (should) only be one entity making our coins. I do not think competition will work with a fixed price product where the cheapest will win and they always go with the cheapest labour (Asia).

What happened to the Air Force silver medal? Had been on the schedule for today just a couple days ago - now TBD.

On the proof set - 3 less quarters than last year and still at the same increased price - with no 'free' add on - definitely a pass.

Yes, shortly before it was to go on sale, the United States Air Force 2.5 Ounce Silver Medal was dropped all the way to the bottom of the US Mint's 2021 Product Schedule, with a new release date of TBD!

Also interesting, the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site 2021 3-Coin Quarter Set went on sale Friday morning, but the availability status quickly changed to Unavailable later in the afternoon (even though there is no mintage or product limit).

But I know, I know... it's all because of that pesky Covid.

In situations like this, the government contracts stipulate the requirements. First and foremost, all coins would have to be made in the current mints by U.S. workers. Contracts can also have provisions regarding quality. Quality is gauged by 3rd party services. What we have right now is not working. The mint's cost to manufacture is way out of control and they're raping collectors to top it off. The mint is way out of touch with their collecting customers. Their communication is crap. Private companies operating government facilities happens all the time at federal, state and local levels. The vast majority of the time, these companies do so for less and the result is better quality.
