-Question from a listener:A few weeks ago you mentioned the Columbia 1/2 dollar and it sparked my interest because of their lower mintage and the fact that they seem to be available in graded conditions for around a few hundred bucks. My free cash for coin investment is generally $100 – $300 every other month; Should I focus on older US minted commemorative coins in a graded condition as my best strategy? Is collecting a set generally more desirable and will it fetch a greater return? For example, should I focus on collecting all of the Daniel Boone Commemorative coins in MS 64 or MS 65? What are your thoughts regarding modern US commemorative’s?
