by Mike Unser on January 16, 2019 · 4 comments

As is always the case following its release, the United States Mint’s newest proof American Silver Eagle was its best-selling numismatic product of the week.

Released last Thursday, Jan. 10, the .999 fine 1-ounce silver coin from the West Point Mint scored four-day sales of 218,990 pieces. That’s a lofty early total other world mints would envy but it does represent the weakest start in the series over the last decade.

This set, which has been on back order for several days now, jumped out of the gate with four-day sales of 17,452 pieces — the second quickest start in the product line to date and just 1,815 away from matching the final sales from last year’s set. Issued annually since 2013, past sets logged opening sales of:

  • 9,015 in 2018,
  • 74,497 in 2017*,
  • 1,568 in 2016,
  • 733 in 2015,
  • 692 in 2014, and
  • 1,414 in 2013.

*The set from 2017 was unique in that it held a limited mintage American Silver Eagle from San Francisco instead of the traditional mint-to-demand edition from West Point.

Wow…a 2019 w proof silver eagle is only $5 cheaper than a 2011 w silver proof eagle even though silver is $30 an ounce cheaper than it was in 2011????
I guess the extra $25 went for packaging.
