Between the Gold Eagle’s release on Thursday, May 22, through to Sunday, May 25, collectors ordered 1,844 coins. At $1,575 for each, the U.S. Mint took in orders totaling $2,904,300. Last year’s release logged debut sales of 1,448 coins at $1,725 each for a total of $2,497,800.

Lower pricing supported the early boost in sales this year, and the 2014-W Uncirculated Gold Eagle will remain at $1,575 for at least another week. Gold has declined, last near $1,263 an ounce compared to near $1,300 an ounce when the Gold Eagle was released. Still, the precious metal has not fallen enough to place its average within another tier that would trigger a change in the Gold Eagle’s price. Its current price is based on a London Fix weekly average gold that is within $1,250.00 to $1,299.99 an ounce. The next chance at a possible price change is Wednesday, June 4.

Here is a breakdown of final sales for all the uncirculated Gold Eagles since they were introduced in 2006.
