    ^^ Not quoting that.

    I guess you have to be a commemorative collector for this to make sense. What's the difference between an ugly low mintage comm. coin and an ugly low mintage spouse?

    Not quite sure I agree with the "propel their market price upward" statement, as you need collectors who want this coin. And at a time when they can easily buy it, so far there seems to be only 1946 of them out there.

    And a tip-of the-hat, to you. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/tip_of_the_hat

    All one needs to do is look at the 5 ounce ATB series. Low Mintage isn't everything. The coin must be desirable as well. 2012 was the perfect storm for that series. Great designs, AND low mintages. 2014 is a good example. Sand Dunes and Arches have the same mintage in the bullion issue. Arches has 5,000 more "P" coins than Sand Dunes, yet Arches commands a higher price than Sand Dunes, in both issues. It's a better looking design. Right now Douglass is priced higher than Ozark, which makes no sense at all to me. I think the Ozarks will surpass the Douglass in price, which makes the Ozark a good buy right now. I've been himming and hawwing about the Boys Town Silver $! Commem. Nice low mintage, but poor design, and little interest. Gonna be years before that coin gets any respect.

    I don't think the ugliness of Boys Town is too much of an issue. Jackie R. is ugly and once commanded almost $5K. It being a potential deep key is the important thing. The problem for the $5 gold series is coins like the burnished plats and spouses re-defined what low mintage means. Jackie was the low mintage modern King and now it's like 75th place or something. Also the modern numi coin market currently sucks in general. A new gold bull is required, which should breed a new numi bull and then we'll see what happens next.

    Yeah, rising tide tends to make everyone happy. I noticed even the Buffalo Commemorative Silver coin can be bought for less than it went for 10 years ago.
