Well the new Uncirirculaded set will be coming out without the LAST NICKEL what do you think!

Hi and welcome to more bad news from the mint. Yes prices have already gone up and next year I see nothing but dim products. Now I collect those sets because I have the Dancso albums. The nickel was very nice to have. Those of you who sent them in or bought them for the three coin set the mint will not be making the third coin. Don't get me wrong but allot of kids get these sets also. I thought it was a nice bonus to have. Now the mint will not be sending them out. So I did what I do best complained to the mint. I'm waiting to be arrested. No only kidding but I did voice my opinion. It was not nice. I asked them if they ran out of plastic bags? The new director has to go. The commens this year were the worst ever. Next year wait and see how much an ASE will cost and all the different versions of it they come out with. So i also said it's time to collect foreign coins. I give up. By the way this is the first complaint they didn't get back to me. I guess the email would cost to much. There going to shoot themselves in the foot.  If the Treasury department does not wake up soon. I see very little buying from the mints. Send an email let them know how you feel.!

It's a shame they can't do a little better job.

All the ness form the mint lately has been terrible. Price raise up the arse.  I ordered the new Proof SAE "S" from them. I think that will likely be the last order. We'll see what the price for them is next year.

Lets see....We will not provide a "bonus" coin that was promised and included in the original pricing of the Mint Sets.  We will announce that we are raising prices on medals that are not selling and doing so at a rate increase from 20% to 400%, keep in mind this is for coins that aren't selling anyway.  We have a coin design/approval system guided by Congress to celebrate all type of Political Correctness, regardless of market demand, (youth sports and disabled athletes, Seriously?), we are designing, minting and trying (key word, trying) to sell Commemorative Coins that have a narrow colored band across the middle and are charging right at 50% more for this narrow red band and seem surprised when it's not selling, and this is coming from a mint that is hoped to make a profit.  I have many more things I could add, but you get the gist of this conversation.  I am seriously disgusted with this fecal matter coming out of the US Mint.  It will not serve as a catalyst to increase my Mint purchases.  Thanks for letting me rant, this seriously angers me.

Ok, I'm on a rant and roll, bear with me. Congress is the main player in the approval process of new mint products.  This is from a political section of the government that is comprised of people who don't under the U.S. Mint, the minting process, or even the fact that in theory the mint is selling these coins to produce income.  They are happy to submit and approve a PC coin because it looks good.  Most don't realize or even care if the coin sells.  They just want helping to create this coin to represent (Insert your cause here) xyz cause as a part of their Resume.  It makes then look and feel good, the classic "Form over Substance", unfortunately to most congressional critters, "Image matters more than truth or results".  "Nuff Said"

That's why I only buy U.S. bullion and collect old U.S. coins
