Silver worth less than base metal?

An inter­est­ing odd­ity was revealed to me at the flea mar­ket this week.

The local coin dealer tells me that the 2008 Sil­ver Proof set is actu­ally sell­ing for less than the Reg­u­lar 2008 Proof set.

As you can see if you fol­low the links the reg­u­lar set is sold out, appar­ently peo­ple bought them due to hard times so the mint is sold out. The sets are sell­ing online for about $65, while the sil­ver sets are still avail­able for $45 direct.

No idea is that will remain the case but there is always the 2008 Uncir­cu­lated set avail­able from the mint…while they last.

BTW did you know they were mak­ing quar­ters of the ter­ri­to­ries and DC? I didn’t.

As you can see if you follow the links the regular set is sold out, apparently people bought them due to hard times so the mint is sold out. The sets are selling online for about $65, while the silver sets are still available for $45 direct.

No idea is that will remain the case but there is always the 2008 Uncirculated set available from the mint…while they last.

BTW did you know they were making quarters of the territories and DC? I didn’t.
