Excitement is building again for 2013 West Point Silver Eagle Sets as photos of some that have already been delivered are beginning to appear around the Internet. I thought I’d throw a few more out there.
To get a sense of the quantities ordered and of the varying shipping times, we placed several orders at different times in the day when the Silver Eagle sets launched on May 9, 2013. Our first order went through within five minutes, and that one was shipped and we received it on Wednesday.
The box of Silver Eagles sat for a few days unopened, teasing like a present under a tree. Today made for a good day to open it. It was great holding the reverse proof and enhanced uncirculated coins in hand. I gazed upon tons of them earlier this month when visiting the West Point Mint — just two days before the sets went off sale with orders at 281,310, but there was a lot going on then and the scene stealer that day turned out to be all the gold bars.
But anyway, and without further ado, here are several photos showing the packaging and coins for the 2013 West Point Silver Eagle Set. For comparison purposes, at the very bottom are photos of the new enhanced uncirculated Silver Eagle coupled with a regular proof and a regular uncirculated Silver Eagle.
