A Game That People Pay



Happy New Year 2017!

Happy New Year 2017! It looks like it is going to be an exciting year for modern silver collector like me, with mints around the world racing to release as many varieties of their main coin series as possible. Cue in the RCM, with a record issue of privy marked maple leaves released (at least 8) in 2016. Seems that if you can think about it, they will privy mark it on their maple! So let's see what they are going to stamp this year.

Which brings me back to the title of this journal, somehow it just comes to my mind that this is a game that I am paying: they release a coin, I pay to buy and slab it, then I get my reward when I enter that NGC slab number into my collection and see my points and sets rise! I am currently ranked #529 and was #609 at the close of the year 2016. A few of my sets actually made it to #1 which in turn motivate me to collect more so I can enter more numbers to rise higher and more and more and more!

So who sets up the rule of this game? The mints? The slab companies? Our own competitive mind?

Happily pondering this train of thought...
