American Eagle Sales Figures: 2007 vs. 2008 Coins

by CoinNews.net on December 26, 2008 · 0 comments

Small American Eagle Coins2008 US Mint American Eagle gold and silver coins are quickly disappearing. Several sold out, some face elimination, and 2009 replacements are on the horizon.

Tables comparing 2007 and 2008 Mint sales figures emphasize coins that look to have been good buys. Plus, potential opportunities that may still exist. Before analyzing the tables, consider also:

  • US Mint discontinued coin products include the American Eagle Gold Uncirculated 1/2, 1/4, 1/10, and Four-Coin Sets. Only the one-ounce option will remain in 2009.

  • The Mint has scheduled several 2009 product releases, but no dates have yet been listed for American Eagles. 2008 coins that do not sell out will stop with 2009 launches.

  • The latest Mint sales figures comparing December 2008 week 3 to week 4 indicate high demand for American Eagle gold proof coins, and even greater demand for the uncirculated options.

  • The proof one-half ounce and four-coin set have sold out within the last eight days. The gold proof one ounce sold out the week prior. It would seem more coins would likely join the sell out list.
