2011-W $25 Proof American Gold Eagle Coin

United States Mint 2011-dated Proof American Gold Eagle products are down to two as the individual $25 coin sold out Monday, joining the previous $50 and $10 sell outs.

Two proof American Gold Eagle products now remain — the smallest $5 coin for $220.50 and the four-coin set which includes all sizes but at a steeper $3,678.00 price. As the United States Mint is no longer striking 2011-dated coins, sell outs of these two products could occur at any time as their inventories dwindle daily.

According to the latest available U.S. Mint sales figures as of Monday, February 20, buyers had purchased 7,855 of the 2011-W $25 Proof American Gold Eagles individually and 17,697 with the four-coin set for a combined total of 25,552. When all the Eagles were released last year, the Mint had announced a maximum mintage of 55,000 for the $25 gold piece. However, actual demand levels during the first few months of a product’s release often dictate how many of them are actually minted, and the final $25 Eagle mintage will fall far short of 55,000 as a result.

American Gold Eagles made their debut in 1986 with bullion versions produced for investors and proofs struck for collectors. The 2011 proofs were released on April 21. The Mint has not announced when it will begin offering this year’s issues.

The 2012 bullion versions launched on January 3. These coins do not carry a West Point "W" mint mark nor have a special finish. Additionally, bullion coins are distributed through a network of "Authorized Purchasers" or AP’s, while proofs are sold directly to the public by the Mint.

After watching gold and silver coins on the US Mint’s website for about 6 years, it seems to me that many times when the red font words advise that ‘there will be a delay in shipping’… that’s a signal that the coin is about to sell out. So place your order and hope for the best at getting it filled. I thought about the 1/2 oz gold proofs a few times recently before they sold out. I checked their low sales figures as an individual product (not as part of the set of 4 gold proof coins). But I failed… Read more »
