Strong Uptake

The 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set seems to be very well received by collectors, especially considering the technical problems experienced and the fact that the set went to backorder within more or less an hour after sales opened at the US Mint. This special silver proof set include: 1 x proof 2015-W March of Dimes Proof Silver Dollar (West Point Mint), 1 x reserve proof 2015-P Roosevelt Silver Dime (Philadelphia Mint) and 1 x proof 2015-W Roosevelt Silver Dime (West Point Mint).

Will the demand for the 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set remain high?

It seems that the product limit of 75,000 has so far not placed a damper on sales, something the mint must have anticipated, especially if one considers the household order limit of 5.

However, I believe it is too early in the game to say with certainty whether the demand for this special silver proof set will remain high or not. I mean, most new coin releases seem to be earmarked by an initial phase fuelled by hype, earmarked by extremely high demand, which normally quickly inflate prices in the secondary market and just as quickly deflate prices as the market becomes over-saturated.

Despite the above, I feel the 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set has a lot going for it, especially if one considers the silver content, the overall appeal of the set and what this special silver set is all about, namely:  the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes. In addition, it is the first time that the US Mint is issuing both a reverse proof silver dime and proof silver dime. In fact, the mentioned coins will only be available in the 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set.

Original Government Packaging (OGP)

If you intend to buy a set or two of these special silver sets in OGP, then look no further than the US Mint itself where sets can currently be bought for $61.95 per set, excluding shipping and other costs. Orders can be placed here.

Certified and Encapsulated

If you’re in the market for a certified and encapsulated 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set, whether the complete set or individual coins, then be sure to wait for these to become available at reputable coin dealers.

Beware of the Sharks

Don’t make the mistake to jump onto eBay and buy the first set that becomes available. You want to be patient and stretch your money’s worth. Now of course if money is not an issue, and you’re prepared to buy 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Sets at any price, then feel free to jump on the nearest shark.

Now needless to say, I am not against the fact that sellers need to profit or get rewarded for their efforts, but sharks and their shenanigans are a different story altogether. Sharks are not good for business as sharks ultimately scare potential collectors and buyers away.
