2016 Will Be My Last Year

Augustus 70


All sets will have a 2016 end date

First let me say, that my 10 year journey into the NGC Registry Sets has been both fun and exciting. In addition to building some of the greatest Canadian Commemorative Silver coin sets, I have also made many friends and battled many competitors.

As with most journeys, a destination is reached at some point. Mine is the year 2016, the end date of all my Canada Commemorative sets. The Royal Canadian Mint has upped the number of coins released per year in my active sets to almost 200. At about $200 per coin (Canadian funds), you are looking at $40,000 annually just to stay current.

This level of spending (investing?) is not sustainable, and keeping up has become almost stressful. I will end all my active sets in 2016. No coins in my sets will be added with a 2017 date or beyond.

That being said, I intend to keep upgrading sets and staying active on the registry with new submissions and updates. I really enjoy it here! The registry is a pile of fun!

So check out my sets and have fun! Josh
