How crazy are the mints?
This journal is posted with the context of modern silver bullion coin issues
Not content with just a regular version of the normal coin, I am calling out the mints by the amount and varieties of bullion coins they make in a given year.
1. BU (brilliant uncirculated) or MS (Mint State) or business strikes
2. Proof strikes
3. Privy Marks
5. Reverse Proof
9. Micro Engraved
10. Non-round shaped coins
11. 3-D shaped addition
12. non-silver attachment (opals, meteorites)
13. Glow in the dark
When they make just 3 versions, I call them boring. When they make 4-6, I call them creative. When they make 7-9, I call them really creative. When they make more than 10, then I call them desperate for sales
