First-day sales of the dual-dated 1792-2017-P Proof American Liberty Silver Medal reached 24,233 pieces. Buyers claimed another 8,842 up to and through the weekend, bringing the medal’s total to 33,075 sold.
The collectible launched on Wednesday, June 14, for $59.95. Struck in an ounce of 99.9% pure silver to a proof finish at the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia, the medal is a companion piece to the high-relief 2017 American Liberty gold coin. It has no mintage or household order limits.
Both the silver medal and gold coin are minted as a part of the U.S. Mint’s celebration of its 225th anniversary. The gold coin scored first-day sales of 14,285, debuting on April 6 for $1,640.00. Its price and sales have since climbed to $1,690.00 and 22,879 pieces.
Last year, the U.S. Mint released a pair of 2016 American Liberty Silver Medals. Each was $34.95 and limited to 12,500. Their cheaper price and low mintages helped in spurring quick sellouts, which happened within 10 minutes of their Aug. 23 launch.

The U.S. Mint will also release a 2017 American Liberty Silver Four-Medal Set.
