“To think that one of the U.S. mints would just layer a number on top of another is incredulous by today’s standards,” said Stack’s Bowers President Brian Kendrella, in the statement. “But that’s what gives this quarter its character and sets it apart from other years. It’ also part of why it’s so valuable and sought after.”
