Why such a low mintage? End of WW II 75th Anniv. American Eagle Gold Proof Coin (20XE)
Hello gang. I am a relatively “new “ collector and have never followed any US mint pre-releases before this one. I managed to (luckily) get a silver eagle but had no such luck on the gold. Has there ever been such a low mintage number as 1945? In that so many today, have ties to WWII (The Big One) what do you feel would have been an “acceptable” mintage number to take care of all of the hard core coin collectors as well as those who may enjoy the coin for personal reasons? It seems that more flippers than collectors have purchased these. I would imagine that a larger mintage number would still sell out without causing the animosity and angst towards the mint and negate any flipping.
