Original Government Packaging - Is there any demand?
Is there a market for the OGP that comes with modern mint releases. They actually do put some effort into the packaging of the coins. I would normally think to sell it on eBay, but I'm not about to try and navigate that again anytime soon.
I have a couple of coins that will be soon wearing plastic - items like the gold Walker, SLQ, and Merc releases, the baseball commem, and the Apollo coins. I also have some OGP for the 2009 UHR.
All of this stuff hitting the landfill a few days after people receive the coins seems wasteful. It would perhaps be something the mint should look at. I'd happily pay a few bucks less to only receive the coin, not that I'm likely to buy much from the mint anytime soon.
