2013-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle Coin

Sales ended for the individual option of the 2013-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle

Individually sold 2013-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagles are no longer available from the United States Mint.

Earlier today, Dec. 19, the Mint tagged the American Silver Eagle as sold out, though it’s still available as one of the six coins packaged within the 2013 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set.

Coin News Update: Later on Thursday, the U.S. Mint removed the ‘Sold Out’ tag from the Eagle’s product page and instead said coins would be available for shipping on "01/01/2014." By Friday morning, it was listed again as sold out.

Last priced at $43.95, sales of the uncirculated Silver Eagle through Sunday, Dec. 15, reached 178,572. The just mentioned annual coin set is $1 more at $44.95, and actually the better deal since it also includes five other uncirculated dollars — the four 2013 Presidential $1 Coins and the 2013 Native American $1 Coin. More recently issued, its sales through Sunday were 18,006. That brings total sales for the 2013-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle to 196,578. At that level, there’s the potential for this year’s coin to mark a new mintage low.

The table below offers sales for West Point struck uncirculated Silver Eagles since their introduction in 2006.

Year Sales / Mintages
2006 466,573
2007 710,299
2008 533,757
2009 Not Sold
2010 Not Sold
2011 409,927
2012 230,872
2013 196,578

 

Sales figures above include all uncirculated Silver Eagles, including those sold individually as well as those purchased as part of numismatic sets. The 2013 total will continue to climb until the 2013 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set is taken off sale or sell outs. As a reference point, last year’s annual set launched in September and sold out in May with a final reported sales total of 28,368.

Well the mint played games on Thursday. First they listed the 2013-W uncirculated silver eagle as sold out. Well low and behold Thursday evening the coin was listed back on sale with product availabllty first of January 2014. Now this morning (12/20/2013) the coins now again listed as sold out. This is about as bad as the Obama care, moving the market.

My last order for these was Wednesday and it’s still pending. I hope I get it. This sellout should produce a jump in prices in online auctions.

I went ahead a bought 25 of the 2013 annual dollar uncirculated set just in case it will be the end of the 2013-w eagle…

I wonder if the orders for this coin is so light or the treasury just stopping production and sales much earlier than before?

Bullion version sold so well it had to be rationed, and proofs sold well too. So Bob I don’t know why. But I’m sure the NSA will note your question and pass it along to the Mint. 🙂

Yes, and Snowden should have at the very least leaked it to us before the NSA shut it down. (as Miley Cyrus would say)

The mint has to order the packaging. If they don’t reorder, they must estimate how many they want to make early on. Then when they strike that number they stop. Somebody at the mint must plan the number they estimate that they want to sell for the year. It would be interesting to know what the estimates are.
