Only two options are left for collectors when it comes to the four various sized 2013-W Proof American Gold Eagles. The U.S. Mint’s website noted a sell out today for the second most popular size, the one-tenth ounce or $5 denominated coin.
The most popular was the one-ounce 2013-W $50 Proof Gold Eagle, which sold out at the start of this year. Before it was gone, the four-coin set, featuring all sizes, departed from Mint store shelves near the end of 2013. That leaves two coins for sale.
Still available from the Mint are the one-half ounce 2013-W $25 Proof Gold Eagle for $795 and the one-quarter ounce 2013-W $10 Proof Gold Eagle for $410.
So far, the two sellouts have had sales totals above the series low which occurred in 2012 for all sizes. The two versions still available, however, have sales that are below the series low. The following table offers a quick breakdown of 2012- and 2013-dated coins based on available U.S. Mint sales data. For easier reading, an asterisk (*) has been placed by the 2013 coins that are sold out.
