I have been reviewing mintage results of Commemorative Silver coins in both uncirculated and proof. It appears that the silver proof coins sell twice the number of coins vs the Silver BU coins.
Therefore the BU coins are rarer than the Proof coins, and sold originally for just a few dollars less.
Once a series in "finalized", how come the rarer uncirculated silver coins don't command a higher price?
The fact that there are twice the number of silver proof coins vs the uncirculated silver coins does not off set the cosmetic attractiveness of the proof silver, so it's price remains at a premium over the uncirculated coin. I always thought that the lower the mintage the higher the price in the secondary market. Not true if its the same coin in Unc. vs Proof. Why?
