2012 American Eagle Platinum Proof reverse &mdash ;“To Provide for the Common Defence”

2012 American Eagle Platinum Proof reverse “To Provide for the Common Defence”

In my last post I wrote about the addition of the new Harry Potter stamp collectables from the United States Postal Service. They are controversial because Harry Potter is not American and the Postmaster General bypassed the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee (CSAC) in their decision making process.

Let’s pretend that the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee could bypass congress (very wishful thinking!), Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, and the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts to build a portfolio of non-circulating legal tender commemoratives to increase collector sales. Today’s poll, which will run for two weeks, asks what the U.S. Mint should do with its pretend freedom.

Should the U.S. Mint expand the number of coins they offer?

For the record, I am in favor of allowing the U.S. Mint to increase the offerings under the American Eagle program. The U.S. Mint has done some of that to this point with the enhanced reverse uncirculated coins and special sets. There should be more special offerings or different offerings. The U.S. Mint could change the reverse designs to honor different themes like they have been doing on the reverse of the platinum American Eagle coins.

I would also like to see more of the enhanced uncirculated American Silver Eagle coins. The way it enhanced Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty design makes it a great looking collectible.
