US Mint Set 2012 x2

Posted in Blog, Coins on June 8, 2012 by slateman

This is my first blog post about coins, but it’s another of my (geeky?) hobbies. However, as my type-set collection has grown, I’ve hit a wall where most of the remaining absences in my collection are far too expensive for it to remain a hobby! However, each spring (or so), I get my mint proof set and I’m usually rather thrilled. This time, however, I opted to get a pair of sets and break up one of them. The 2012-S coins are utterly beautiful and I’ve already added the quarters to my collection. It’s so much better than getting uncirculated coins (which I did for several years) and ultimately completely worth it. With the 50 state quarters and 6 territory coins, the 44-coin set of America The Beautiful quarters will bring this tally up to 100. It’s madness. Anyways…just a blog update that I collect these too.
