The American Eagle Platinum Proof Four-Coin Set is the last remaining 2008-dated platinum collector product available from the U.S. Mint.
The single proof one-tenth ounce coin sold out Wednesday, with all previous options — in both proof and uncirculated — already depleted. The last reported mint sales figures for the single coin was 2,694.
The four-coin proof set includes one ounce, one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce, and one-tenth ounce coins struck in platinum for the price of $2,179.95. The Mint’s website has a delayed shipping notice of December 25 for the set, likely indicating its inventory level is already very low.
