The mint has shown it has increasingly been looking to increase profits rather than just doing what the mint has done in the past. Does anyone think they will release a graded first strike or such an item to sell to collectors in the future?1 month ago
Does anyone think that the US mint will ever "team" up with NGC, PCGS, or Both?
Not sure, but the mint has become very much about profit, so expect something unusual and/or different.1 month ago
I'm confused. The Mint will release a graded first strike.? You mean slabed all ready?1 month ago
Like the mint will partner with NGC or PCGS to sell the first coin slabbed by them.1 month ago
Contrary to popular consensus, I think the United States Mint has we, the collectors, in mind when issuing new products. While some, like the basketball commemorative, leave me to wonder on where ideas come from, the groups of collectors they target seem appropriate. You bring up a valid point, partnering with a third party grading firm. The possibility is there, albeit most likely would be done in a manner not representative of which ever they might choose. In other words, I somehow do not see a company name on packaging or an encapsulation of a government issued product.

I'm all for private business and government partnering, but this wouldn't fit the concept as I think of it. I don't know if coin grading services are in the business of buying coins. If they are it seems that it would call into questioning of the grading services. How can they be objective with s process like that? It would be inherently flawed1 month ago
This wouldn't ork. They cannot get into the the Value of the coin. They just be kept separate or people will start yelling Monopoly. There business is to make coins. Not to be involved with a third party grader. One is totally different than the other1 month ago
I'm sure they would love to but no. We would have to change a boat load of laws.1 month ago
