The United States Mint this week published release dates for products that are scheduled to launch this summer.
They include some highly-anticipated and brand new products like the 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Proof Set, the 2018-W Proof American Palladium Eagle, and silver medals featuring former presidents.
Recognizing the 50th anniversary of regular silver proof sets from the San Francisco Mint, a reverse proof edition launches on July 23 for $54.95. Reverse proofs are opposite of standard proofs with mirror-like artwork and inscriptions that contrast against frosted backgrounds.
On Aug. 14, look for another proof American Silver Eagle — this one from the San Francisco Mint carrying an ‘S’ mint mark. This year’s regular version from the West Point Mint went on sale Jan. 4. (See photos of the coin.) Priced at $55.95, its sales so far are at 274,607. The ‘S’ proof Silver Eagle will also be $55.95.
Two days later, on Aug. 16, two 1-ounce .999 fine Presidential silver medals become available. As we wrote about earlier this year, they complement the already available Presidential medals in bronze. Their prices have yet to be announced.
Last year, the U.S. Mint introduced the bullion American Palladium Eagle. (See photos of the coin.) All 15,000 sold on their Sept. 25, 2017 release day. An edition in a collector proof finish will go on sale for the very first time on Sept. 6.
