The climbing "w"s

Last year with the 2020 silver set, which i buy annually, came a reverse proof West point one cent. This year, it will be a reverse proof nickel. First of all, if the nickel is as good as the penny was, I am certainly going to look into buying reverse proof mint sets (I do like cool looking mint sets, like the SMS, or more recently, the enhanced uncirculated for the 225 anniversary of Philly mint). Second, following the pattern, will next year be a dime? Thirdly, will West point ever make reg circ coins beyond ultra hard to find quarters? Fourthly, how cool would the sacagawea design look reverse proof? Fifthly, and finally, will there ever be a west point mint set? Sixthly, (yes, I was lying), will there ever be an end to free westpoints? (Which I like, who doesn't like freebies?) and finally, legit this time, will I ever find a West point quarter! (Last one really more of a lament, the rest are questions)

there is a reverse proof Sacagawea, the one in 2018.  I hate the idea of a W Roosevelt Dime.  In fact, I wish they would scrap that design entirely and give us a decent design instead of a very ordinary design.

I am all for a change in design of the dime; it's the longest running active design without mods

LWH, You bring up some good points. I think that the mint should just stop with the "W"s. It is getting too crazy. It was awesome for 2019, but this is not something that should continue.

The first West Point release, which I bought, was that in the 1996 Mint Set. So I think that one could probably be struck from the list as being next in line. You may be on to something, a West Point set in the coming years. What ever they have in mind I don't see any further "free" coins beyond the nickel. And by the way, I have not found any quarters yet either. Not for looking, though.
