Something we’re going to be watching over the next few months are sales of the 2019 War in the Pacific coins. They released after the American Memorial Park coins, but sales are increasing at a rate that indicates they will exceed those of the previous. Could it be the design?The Mint has been putting more and more emphasis into the importance of good coin design.Time will tell.
