What a waste of the legislative calender, taxpayers money, and an insult to Native Americans. How about doing something constructive like appropriating and dedicating some of these funds towards education programmes and better school facilities for Native Americans?

 

Unless the tribe has sold out and put a casino on the res. in which case they have great school facilities, reservations tend to have miserable schools.

This is the end. The feds have "jumped the shark" and we are now at a point like the classic commem proliferation or the 58 commem dollars for the 1996 Olympics. There is too much being offered by the mint and almost all of it is CRAP!!! From now on, unless it's a stunning commem design (like one's using Morgan or Longacre's reverses) I will be content to just buy the proof and mint sets to update my albums and be done with it.

The SF mint commem last year was my first mint purchase in years, and probably the last for awhile.

I came to this conclusion last year. I went a step further and sold all my proof sets and will just buy commems that have a compelling design. Period. Let's hope they don't screw with the Proof Silver Eagle program so I don't have to get rid of that set too.

I actually thought about that, the only thing I'd like to keep are the silver proof sets since I have a complete run from 1992 on, and then selling the others. Then again I probably wouldn't get that much for them, so maybe I'll just let sleeping dogs lie.

honestly? i'd rather have these than the presidential dollars.

 

this is, imho, yet another money grab. last time i wrote to my senators about this one was silent and one was all "it's all about seigniorage." how can you fight that sort of brain death?!?

More crap from the Mint.

 

I'm glad I can't afford most of the coins the Mint puts out, or else I'd be really, really angry. Only commems I have are the Marine, Franklin, and the SF Mint ones. Bought those purely because I liked the design.

 

So far behind on the sets I don't bother any more.

It's really a good thing that there are no starving people, no homeless, no one without medical insurances, no disabled, etc. Due to all this perfect society our government can just waste millions or billions on messing around with coins that most people don't want.

 

Governments believe they solve problems by printing or stamping out more money. In fact, they create more problems.

And unfortunately the only way to make them sit up and take any notice at all is by more people voting for underdog parties. Maybe if one of them get up there, SOMEONE will listen to us when we call our senators and ask them to do something about anything ranging from our disinvolvement of the genocide in Darfur to the waste of money on hopelessly failing numismatic efforts.

I think the mint actually runs a positive balance sheet so it can' really be a waste of money.

I would call it a waste.

There are other things they can do rather then produce a whole series of flat fugly dollars. They could use the money and the resources to develop a die that can make an attractive high relief coin in one strike.

Seconded. Why did they get away from those in the first place?

My 1900-present set stopped dead in its tracks when they introduced the Presidential dollars.
