The United States Mint on Friday, May 3, 2013, placed the set’s product page in the no longer available section of its website and tagged it with the words "sold old."

Two Rounds of Suspensions and Re-Pricing

Last year’s coin set went on sale September 6, 2012 for $54.95. Its price was set when silver was sitting very close to $32 an ounce.

On October 3, it and other silver products were suspended for re-pricing after the U.S. Mint noted silver had been "trading in a range of $30.00-$35.00 per ounce" for an extended time. The U.S. Mint pushed its price up to $59.95 on October 10 when the coin set went back on sale. Then, on April 15, it went off sale again for another round of re-pricing when silver plunged to $23.54 an ounce. It returned Thursday, May 2, with new pricing of $49.95.

The set was susceptible to suspensions and re-pricing since one of its included coins is a one-ounce, 99.9% pure 2012-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle. The other five coins are the Native American dollar from Denver and Philadelphia minted Presidential dollars featuring Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland (first and second terms) and Benjamin Harrison.

Latest Sales

Information from the United States Mint as of April 29 has its sales total at 27,324. It seems likely that the U.S. Mint had capped its production level at around 28,000. This page will be updated with the final sales total when it is available.

Sales Update: The U.S. Mint reported a new sales total of 28,368 as of May 6, 2013.

This year’s 2013 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set has a scheduled release in July.
