Milk Spots White Haze And Black Marks Update!!Live On T.V.

Coins | Mike

Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing well. I nave to update my blog on Milk spots. I was watching Rick Tomaska on Sunday September,3 at 12:10 P.M. What a shock!! He showed three Morgan dollars from the mint in there OGP. To my surprise a white haze covering the obverse of a new Morgan. He wasn't done on the reverse of another Morgan black marks. That's right black marks. You can see them with the naked eye. The third I had a mark right on the check of a Morgan.

Now I wrote an email about this and never got back. I always get a reply. Not last time. The mint has gone back in time to the 1950's. This problem has to stop. This is our hard earned money. So they send coins we might as well through away.


..Now this comes down to poor quality control or there buying low grade plan hats that have not been rinsed.These are 2021 last year! I asked everyone to sign on to the mint. Go to customer service and contact us. Please do this. I would hate to see someone get stuck with these cheep made coins. This is 2022. What will happen to these coins next year.? I see the same.

The RCM Maple Leaf was the worst problem.However they did test and a five year study and corrected there problem. Now you would figure they would share this. No way. So a big THANKS TO THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT FOR THERE HELP. You would think they would share this. No.

...Im one person. I need all of you to send an email to the mint. Call if you have to. They have got to know we will not spend good money for bad coins. If it's just me the next coin you buy will be one of those. The American Liberty was poorly struck. EBay has more 69 than 70's.

What's going on.? We have a right to know. And there not telling us! The Morgan 70's can turn in the slab. So please check your coins. We deserve better. These are like cheap knock offs. I will not stand for it. The Treasury Department is next. So please watch your coins and keep in contact with the mInt. Mike

It seems quite an issue. However, so far I have no regrets about US Mint services and customer quality efforts.

That's because this is new!. It shouldn't be happening in this day and age. Yes in the 1950:s and 60's. But not now. They showed it live on T.V. Others saw it. And I have seen milk spots or haze on that coin you showed.

That’s AMERICAN capitalism! Provide the lowest possible quality, for the highest possible price! Yes, they do need to hear a very loud outcry from the public, but that should also be combined with a HUGE decline in sales! You need to hit them where it hurts, in the wallet!! Stop buying, and when they hear the complaints, and can no longer push their cheap products, only then will something change. Fortunately, I don’t have that problem, since I collect OLD coins.

Wow, that is troubling, Mike. I am going to have to keep an eye on my 2021 Morgan and Peace Dollars. I would hate for the slabbed ones, especially, to develop that haze or black spots.

I'm almost afraid to comment on the fact that I have not noticed any "spots" on any of the silver coins I have purchased directly from the mint. I will definitely keep an eye on the coins for many years to come, and all of the coins as of this writing remain in OGP. With that, I am reluctant to contact the mint in regards to this problem, having not actually experienced it myself. I am curious to know how prevalent this issue is amongst recently minted coins (more so since 2019 when the mint switched to 99.9% fine silver).

Hey, I was watching that Rick Tomaska's show also! It's amazing all the different coins he tries to sell! Milk spots and black spots on coins... Should not be for sale in that condition without listing those imperfections! All good ideas about the Mint. We need to let them know when products are not as described. Thanks Mike! ; )

While I won't contest that some collectors have received these sort of coins, fortunately I have not over the many years of buying direct. Perhaps my Irish luck? I do, however, have a few early modern commemoratives which have developed that dreaded- and common- haze halo. Particularly in a few of my Prestige Proof sets. But I can not fault them for the lack of foresight as to long term packaging integrity. So to remedy the issue when I first noticed, all of my cases and capsules since have had a thin layer of silicone applied to the seam. No more issues.

Also The 50 Famous woman had milk spots on the obverse of the first coin. So something is very wrong with the new coins

Wow! I happened to be watching the same show. Milk spots are bad enough but those black marks were nasty. I have seen them on old copper coin but not new silver. I agree with Mike. WE all should send a message to the mint about this. I disagree with him being angry with the Royal Canadian Mint. This is capitalism. The paid for the study and they keep the results. BUT we can do our part to help make our mint better. Thanks MIke.
