The Mint had a great idea. The minted an ASE-S Enhanced Reverse Proof coin. The bad part of their idea is that they only made 30,000 and they were all sold out in under and hour. Our "friends" that are coin dealers have a system whereby they buy "special" limited quantity coins for a bonus of about $150-$250, depending on the demand. Evidently, the demand for the coins is high because some of them are selling on ebay and other television dealers from $500 to $3,000. They did something like that quite a while ago when the included an ASE-2 in the Congratulation Set. It was the one and only time that I bought one from "Rick" for about $100. As far as an Enhanced Reverse Proof Coin, one of them were included in the USA/Canada set, only it was minted at West Point.As far as the ASE-S ERP coin, it ain't worth it boys and girls. Down the road apiece, you'll get one for about $200.

Well, they did it again. The "new" ASE-W Type 1, sold out very quickly. More people were able to get some, but not as many as wanted them. I was one of the fortunate ones that got one. How was I able to get it? I had the ASE W Type 1 in my enrollment system. Shortly, after I got it, I contacted the Mint to find out if my enrollment would secure a Type 2 ASE. The answer, was a resounding "NO". The Mint is doing something that I don't remember seeing them do recently. They are lumping many coins during this year. The coins that I know of is the ASE Type 2,, AGE Type 2, the "New" Morgans, and the the Peace coin. If you were to gt everything that is neat to own, first, you would be lucky to get on their website, and secondly, you would have to have the amount of money you would need to purchase all of them. Even with a price tag of $85 each for the silver coins and thousands for the gold coins. Another issue the Mint has, is that if you are lucky enough to get the coins, they won't be delivered for a month or more after they are purchased. SO... Best of luck for those that are still going to try to get at least one of all the coins offered.
