In creating the program, the United States Mint has yet again created a coin series which is either loved or hated. While it is still in the early stages a thought, or a sense of deja vu, has struck me looking to buy the final three reverse proofs when Georgia becomes available. In the first several months of sales beginning with the 2018 U.S. Patent, the low mintage of 75,000 has yet to be reached. With none of the five reaching sold out status I wonder two things. How long will they remain available for purchase? Will they actually reach the maximum mintage even if available in future years like previous mint and proof sets have? When the program finally ends and the mintage figures released I believe they will resemble those of the early commemoratives. Which has me wondering as I type. Will the reverse proofs continue if sales fall short? Or will the mint simply reduce the number accordingly?
There are far too many questions attached to this series than first imagined.
