US Mint Sales: 2018-W Uncirculated Gold Eagle Debuts

by Mike Unser on July 18, 2018 · 4 comments

2018-W $50 Uncirculated American Gold Eagle ReleasedThis year’s uncirculated American Gold Eagle from the West Point Mint moved faster out of the sales gate than past issues.

U.S. Mint sales figures published today show collectors grabbed 4,149 of the coins in the four days since its Thursday release. That more than doubles last year’s debut, and ranks at the top of the pack against other recent starts.

Here’s a listing of early sales performances for the annual coin series since 2011:

  • the coin for 2017 opened with 1,881
  • the coin for 2016 opened with 2,968
  • the coin for 2015 began at 2,157
  • the coin for 2014 started with 1,844
  • the coin for 2013 opened with 1,448
  • the coin for 2012 debuted with 1,949
  • the coin for 2011 began at 1,098

Earlier today, the U.S. Mint reduced pricing on its gold coins. The uncirculated Gold Eagle went down $50 to $1,540 from $1,590.

How can the WWI medal sets show an increase. I thought they had to be pre ordered and were minted to that number?

Anyone considering this set? Wish there was more info. Hefty fee for bundling when you can bundle yourself.
