Commemoratives For 2023 ?

I have not read anything about commemorative coinage for 2023 or have I missed something.

    Mercifully none are in the hopper.

    There are none for 2023. Congress did not get around to passing the legislation to authorize them.
    The two 2024 issues were previously authorized.

    Do the Peace and Morgan dollars count? Or did those get cancelled and I haven't heard about it? I haven't been keeping up too much.

    Peace and Morgans are not part of the Commemorative series. They are their own series and are on the product schedule for 2023.

    What? Have they run out of military themes and wars to commemorate?

    Given the past few years, it surprises me that none are scheduled. Maybe just taking a break... This is not a bad thing.... ;) Cheers, RickO

    Janet Yellen has been busy signing fiat currency, maybe commemoratives are transitory.

    The 2022 commemoratives, especially some uncirculated products, did not sell very well. Mintages of many recent commemoratives are way too low to economically justify so many coin finishes and mint marks. The premiums are also too high.

    The new women quarter designs and proof Peace and Morgan dollars are going to be very popular in 2023, along with the Navy, Marine Corps, and Liberty proof one-ounce silver medals.

    This is not to say Congress couldn't add something come January. But as of now, nothing has been authorized.

    New legislation coming out for the United States Mint requires profitably for new coinage on the Numismatic side.

    Historically commemoratives have Not been profitable …

    Not much happened in 1923 to commemorate it's centennial.

    Interesting. What are the 2024 topics?

  • ZoinsZoins Posts: 33,811 ✭✭✭✭✭

    What would be some good 2023 themes if some were to be made?

    We desperately need a new $10 coin. The Library of Congress coin is meh and the First Flight coin is just terrible.

    Low mintages don’t seem to mean anything anymore. The law enforcement uncirculated silver dollars sold less than 10,000 coins and yet you can still find it for barely above issue, price, certified.

    for uncirculated gold $5 commems it seems like sub- 2000 in sales is the new normal. I still like the series, I know a lot are getting melted, but that’s a pretty pricy series for the average collector to start buying.

    Turkey is celebrating its 100th anniversary. There will be foreign stuff to keep you busy.

    Having to cover costs is nothing new, it's been part of the laws for many, many years.

    What is new is several coins failing to reach break-even or coming in just above, such that the beneficiary only gets a token amount of money.

    I agree that a new 10$ coin would be interesting but contrary to "MEH", I find the Library of Congress bi-metallic mating of gold and platinum to be extremely attractive.

    I suspect it’s because the designs are so darn ugly. And I suspect that’s the case due to all the restrictions of modern high-speed coining (low relief, etc.).

    What we need is somebody with new ideas, not just new designs.

  • BStrauss3BStrauss3 Posts: 3,144 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Also by the time you put all the required elements on the coin - Denomination year mintmark, Liberty, In God We Trust, and E Pluribus Unum - there isn't much room for the design elements.

    You have one, in the Jovita Idar NWQ for 2023. https://www.usmint.gov/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/2023-american-women-quarters-coin-jovita-idar-uncirculated-reverse.jpg

    I happen to think it will be stunning, especially in a reverse proof, but lots of people have panned it.

    If you pan everything innovative, you get pablum.

    I wonder how many people will think that's a fake quarter? People aren't accustomed to seeing a coin without a readily apparent denomination.

    Last $10 was the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower - a design that I like quite a bit.

    Should have clarified. I’m a circulation strike collector, not a proof collector. I was ignoring the proof only coins.

    Imo, the $5 gold commems are a ;best buy today as the spouses. Lotsmust be melted or buried as few are listed in comparison to even two years ago.Good ways to stack some bullion with the bonus of being relatively easy to complete sets with a little searching, close to bullion.

    Actually this is a really cool new idea! I have to say that the American Women Quarters are hitting it out of the park.
