Studies have shown that New Year’s resolutions do not last long, but that doesn’t mean it is a bad thing to re-evaluate things you are doing from time to time.

When silver was rocketing ahead to its 2011 peak I suggested collectors take a look at their modern commemorative silver dollars and use the opportunity to get rid of coins they no longer desired to own.

A loss of interest might have occurred because retail prices on the secondary market had fallen, or simply that a set that begins in 1983 with the Olympic commemoratives (1982 if you include silver half dollars) was growing too big.
