Why Own an Entire "Date Run?" A Portfolio Within a Portfolio Understanding why owning a "Date Run" is more valuable than owning a few specific years is important. Besides the sheer enjoyment of knowing that you own ALL of the coins produced over a specific period in a certain metal class, there are three specific reasons as to why you derive a greater benefit from owning ALL of the coins minted in that particular class of coin.
1. Date Runs allow you to acquire premium coins at a better value
2. Having a complete Date Run is worth more money on a collective basis
3. Complete Date Runs are the rarest of the rare Premium Coins at a Better Value
If you were to go to the Chevrolet dealership and inquire about purchasing a new Silverado truck, you might expect to pay about $30,000 - depending on features, of course. However, if you walked into the parts department and requested to buy one of each part that makes up that same Silverado truck - you're not getting out of there for less than $90,000, or three times the cost of the same parts already assembled for you.
The reason that it costs more to buy individual parts is because the operational costs that must be allocated to that particular part (manufacturing, supply chain, inventory carrying costs, etc.) are only able to be spread over the singular part. The manufacturer, in this case General Motors, must make more money per "part" when sold individually in order to appropriately cover costs. And, let's not forget that our friends at GM (often referred to as "Government Motors" nowadays) also charge you more for that part....well, because they can.
The same holds true if you attempted to assemble an entire Date Run by yourself - it's going to end up costing you more time and money - and it's very likely that you won't be able to complete the entire set due to the rarity of a few key years. In nearly all situations, acquiring a complete set, or Date Run, saves you money because the dealer is able allocate a smaller portion of their fixed cost base over a larger collective purchase. (Fortunately for our clients, we don't run our business the same way GM runs its business.) And, it allows the dealer to turn the inventory faster, which cuts down on the cost to carry the coins during the time they're in the vault.

Owning a complete Date Run is worth more money in the long-run because, quite simply, it makes the portfolio more rare. It is not particularly uncommon for an individual to have a few complete sets of specific years; however, the likelihood of someone having a complete Date Run is very rare. So, as time passes and the individual four coins sets are acquired into collectors’ portfolios, it becomes extremely difficult to acquire ALL of the four coin sets necessary to complete a Date Run.
Complete Date Runs are the Rarest of the Rare There is a reason that a complete Date Run is the rarest of the rare - time has a tendency to absorb all of the highest quality coins available, and people aren't willing to give them up!
The 2004 four coin Platinum set is the second most rare set available due to the popularity of the $50 coin in that particular set. .
So, imagine for a minute that you are one of the few people on the face of this earth that happens to maintain in your portfolio not only the 2005 and 2004 year four coin sets, but also ALL of the Proof 70 four coin sets ever produced!
