Modern coinage is always in a top league. You just need the experience on grading and picking top pops to get graded.

Except for silver and gold collector coins, US coinage has been horrible since 1965.

What you mean?

January 1, 2026, the 250th Anniversary or Sestercentennial of the United States 🇺🇸 and only by an Act of Congress, much in the manner approval was sought and gained for issuance of the centennial Morgan and Peace dollars in 2021.

Congress does, with a Presidential signature. All designs over 25 years old can technically be changed by the Secretary of the Treasury, but no SecTreas in our lifetime has had the guts to take on entrenched political power.

With one notable exception (which I assume required special authorization): the introduction of the Kennedy half (1964) which effectively superseded the Franklin half introduced only 16 years earlier (1948).

Congress passed it in record time. President Johnson signed the legislation on December 30, 1963.
