Bottom hit for enhanced set sales?

The sales plunge has stopped for the United States Mint’s 225th Anniversary Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set. A two-week swoon of 16 percent of all sets was reversed in the week ending Sept. 3.

Enhanced uncirculated set sellout has Denver twist

The enhanced uncirculated coin set sold out online in minutes yesterday. That news flashed across the American Numismatic Association bourse floor in Denver. It was dealer set-up time. No public was on the floor. There also was a twist. Word came nearly three hours before the sets were offered at the Mint’s booth. The noon Eastern […]
