50 State Quarters

Hi group,
I am just and occasional collector, just buying if I hapeen to see
something I like. But I would lie to ask if the U.S. mint price ont the
5 quarter set is a good one or if the coin shops get them cheaper. Also
24.00 dollars is awfully comperd to the last ilver eagle i bought. Is it
a rip.
Many thanks.

The only way a coin shop can get them cheaper is if someone sells them a
set for less than what they paid the mint for it.  There is no discount
to bulk sales to dealers this year (yet).  As for the silver eagle why
is it so awful?  What was the last silver eagle you bought and where did
you buy it from?  Was it Unc or Proof?  for the last few years the mint
price for the silver eagle proofs has been $23 so they only went up one
dollar.  Of course most of the earlier coins have fallen in value in the
aftermarket and can be bought for less than issue price.  If you are
comparing the mint price to a coin you bought on the aftermarket you are
not making a fair comparison on whether it is a rip.

The dealers are going to get bulk purchase info today or tomorrow if I
remember correctly. We will be limited and probably will be offering these
over mint cost.
Remember this is just year one of a 10 year program!!

The price on the Proof Silver eagles is the best price in town, but this of
course is the source.
