So many commemorative sets at a time and too costly setswill discourage coin lovers. I think, it is not a healthy practice by mint.Behaving like a professional is good but commemorative coins should be mintedwith consideration of cultural enrichment (Recording of historical events and remembranceof famous personalities and institution). Mind it after few centuries, thesemay be a source of knowledge about present era). So mint should encouragepeople to buy it, more minting may enrich our national integration.
