Very Cool Coin. Similar Items From Other Sellers:.The mintages for modern commemorative coins issued by the United States Mint are dependent upon the total number of coins sold to collectors during the specified offering period. The number of coins issued under each program is also subject to a certain maximum mintage indicated in the authorizing legislation.
In general, coins with the lowest mintages are the most valuable for their respective denominations. Commemorative coins have experienced low mintage levels for a variety of factors.
Over the years, some programs have carried themes or designs that did not experience a high degree of popularity with buyers, resulting in lower sales. The number of other numismatic products offered concurrently has also played a factor. During and immediately following periods with a large number of different commemorative coins issued, the number coins sold for each program has suffered. Collector preference for proof versions compared to uncirculated versions also plays a factor.
In almost all cases, the total sales for proofs is higher than for uncirculated coins. Different packaging options can have an impact, as coins included in multi-coin sets or special collectible products can experience higher sales than coins only offered individually. Finally, in recent years, the price of precious metals seems to have had an impact.
Gold and silver coins have become more expensive, prompting some collectors to cut back on their purchases. The modern commemoratives with the highest mintages primarily consist of the earlier issues. After nearly 30 years without commemorative offerings, there was a high level of pent up demand and collector excitement. The George Washington Half Dollar sold more than 7 million coins across the proof and uncirculated offerings.

That's great, but many of those predictions will be hopelessly wrong by the end of March. That's why it's so fascinating that Ray Kurzweil, one of the leading thinkers when it comes to the future of technology, has had such a strong track record in making predictions about technology for nearly two decades. So how does he do it. The fact is, Ray has a system and this system is called the Law of Accelerating Returns. In his new book How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed, Kurzweil points out that "every fundamental measure of information technology follows predictable and exponential trajectories.
Thanks to paradigms such as Moore's Law, which reduces computing power to a problem of how many transistors you can cram on a chip, anyone can intuitively understand why computers are getting exponentially faster and cheaper over time. The other famous exponential growth curve in our lifetime is the sheer amount of digital information available on the Internet.
Kurzweil typically graphs this as "bits per second transmitted on the Internet. That's why "Big Data" is such a buzzword these days - there's a growing recognition that we're losing track of all the information we're putting up on the Internet, from Facebook status updates, to YouTube videos, to funny meme posts on Tumblr.
In just a decade, we will have created more content than existed for thousands of years in humanity's prior experience. And it's not just computing power or the growth of the Internet. Chapter ten in Kurzweil's latest book, How to Create a Mind, includes 15 other charts that show these exponential growth curves at work. Once any technology becomes an information technology, it becomes subject to the Law of Accelerating Returns.
Consider biomedicine, for example. Now that the human genome is being translated into a digital life code of 1's and 0's that can be processed by computers, it's also an information technology, and that means it's also subject to the Law of Accelerating Returns.
When you look at the cost of sequencing a human-sized genome, the cost started dropping exponentially around 2001 and fell off the genomic cliff in about 2007 -- about the same time that Craig Venter's genome project took off.
As Ray points out in How to Create a Mind, the reason why typical pundits and prognosticators typically get it wrong year after year is that the human mind has evolved to think linearly, not exponentially.
We conceive of 40 steps as a linear progression: one step after another, from 1 to 40. Ray thinks exponentially, though. That's why Ray's latest project - reverse-engineering the human brain - is so exciting.

So what can we count on for 2013. Think like Ray, and use the Law of Accelerating Returns to your advantage.Bets will stand on the official result provided at least one ball has been bowled. In the event of a tie then dead-heat rules will apply and bets on the draw will be losers. Bets placed on any player not in the starting 11 are void.
Bets on players who are selected but do not bat or do not bowl will be settled as losers. In the event of two or more players ending on an equal number of wickets then the bowler with the least number of runs conceded will be deemed the winner. Bets are struck on the 1st innings of the match the settlement of which is determined by the team batting 1st (as opposed to both teams).
The innings must be completed (declarations count) otherwise bets are void unless settlement is already determined. This market is based on a century (as opposed to 100 runs) being scored.
Declarations will be considered the end of an innings for settlement purposes. A minimum of 50 overs must be bowled unless All Out or team declares. Otherwise bets void, unless settlement of bets is already determined. Both teams must complete their first innings for bets to stand (including declarations). Bets void if the designated number of matches are not completed. For series batsman total runs and player matches runs scored in both innings of all the matches in the series will count.
For player performance the runs scored, wickets, catches and stumpings taken in both innings of all matches in the series will count. The over must be completed for bets to stand unless result already determined. For Test matches totals are settled on the1st Innings only. Bets stand once 1 ball has been bowled in each team's 1st innings. Bets are void if the innings is forfeited. The whole match counts. Bets will stand after batsman has faced one ball or is given out before first ball is faced.

Score counts if batsman is Not-Out including if innings is declared. All bets stand irrespective of delays caused by rain or for any other reason. Unless a price is quoted for a draw, in the event of a drawn match, bets will be void.
