I had no idea when they would end, but I just ran across the following on the US Mint website!

Do we know what is, or will be, the key to the series now?

    I wonder what the implications are for the series and pricing now. While I would usually consider coins of this nature cheap bullion coins, some of them do have surprisingly low mintages.

    I don't care about them. Most of them should never have been minted.

    I never really cared for these types of coins.

    Yea, there you go again, Bill. You don't like something (CAC, modern Presidential coins, etc.) and boom! You know what I don't like? :wink:

    I have expressed my position on these commemative coins many times and have backed it up with historical facts.

    Notice the "First Spouse" pieces are 'products' and not 'medals.'

    Sooner or later they'll be gone and many will say "good riddance".

    Hardly anyone will collect them as a series.
    Popular coins will likely be:

    Wives of founding fathers.
    Four-coin "Liberty" subset.
    Eleanor Roosevelt.
    Jackie Kennedy.
    Nancy Reagan.

    And proofs will be more in demand than uncirculated.

    I bought one of the Jefferson's Liberty. Doing the set looked like a money pit to me.

    I also bought the Jefferson - Draped Bust piece because I have long admired the Draped Bust design. I got a defective one from the mint and ended up not keeping it. I sold it for a small profit when the bullion prices increased.

    The only other one I have is the Jackie Kennedy piece, mostly for nostalgic reasons. My parents were head of heals “in love” with the Kennedys in the early 1960s, and I was a naive kid who viewed our national leaders with rose colored glasses. Jackie and John were a handsome, elegant couple, and I admired his intelligence and her elegance. Little did we know about his philandering ways and later her re-marriage for money. Still the Jackie Kennedy First Spouse coin and Kennedy gold half dollar make an attractive pair, especially in their elegant wooden mint boxes.

    I never cared for either series. To me, they were simply sales gimmicks.... and a money pit. Cheers, RickO
