Maybe the Mint should list mintage limits for its 40 piece bulk sales as well as for individuals. 84,000 isn’t chicken feed…

Kaiser Wilhelm

Mjs1447, Excellent point. I am no longer surprised or amazed whenever the Mint pulls a rather distasteful stunt like this, by that I mean making a coin appear to be far more scarce and therefore valuable than it in fact is just to help drive up the public’s buying interest. In fact, these days I would only be shocked if the Mint didn’t do something sneaky and underhanded every single time it releases a new coin or other product. The powers that be at the Mint seem to lack any semblance of a sustainable ethical compass, so it is in… Read more »

Won’t these also show up in the Mint’s limited edition silver proof set later this year, adding another 50,000 coins to the total? Sounds like these are going to have a very high mintage. Do 425,000+ people actually collect this series?

Mjs1447

I think they have been putting an S mint eagles in those sets lately but you never know what the Mint has up their sleeve.

Seth Riesling

The Mint’s website says it will be a “W” $1 with other coins with “S” Mint mark in its limited edition Proof later this year.

NumisdudeTX

Kaiser Wilhelm

Seth,

That brings us to a total maximum mintage for the 2021-W T2 ASE of:
Individual: 300,000
Bulk: 85,680
LESPS: 50,000

TOTAL: 435,680 Coins

So I wonder, why is this such a sought after coin at that total mintage?

Kaiser Wilhelm

And still the Mint won’t send me my Back Order 2021-W T2 ASE!

Kaiser, I just received an e-mail from the Mint this morning informing me to check on my account as they are getting ready to ship me my enrollment order of two coins.The thing is I’ve already received those two coins! I wonder who’s in charge of the Mint? I guess it’s a consequence of being ranked 37th in the world as far as proficiency in education.

Larry T, I saw Sir Kaiser’s reply to your comment. However, I also received the same email from the Mint this morning regarding my enrollment order which is for the 2021-S Proof Silver American Eagle (Type 2) scheduled to be released on August 12, 2021.

Larry T

Rich, That would make sense! I’m going to check that e-mail and look for the “S” designation. I’ve been doing some long distance bike rides and maybe the sun’s getting to me! Lol.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Larry and Rich,

It’s definitely the “S”. This time I can relax since I’ve got an enrollment for three of those little beauties. And for three of the “Unc.” after that. Always best to think ahead (now if I can just remember that!).

I finally got through this morning and was informed that my 2021-W T2 ASE will be shipped August 13th. Fingers crossed.

Larry T

Seth, Does it state the W will be proof? It could be the W Burnished dollar they will use that is due to be released in late summer/fall.

Seth Riesling

Larry T. –

Since it is a Limited Edition Silver Proof set, it will not have an uncirculated burnished finish ASE $1. The LESPS only has Proof coins in it, as its name implies.

Unless the Mint isn’t satisfied with just vanishing the clamshell and would like to begin saving moolah on the very product itself now, as in the Limited Edition Silver Uncirculated And Proof Set.

Mjs1447 and morgan, I had forgotten about that added treasure trove of 2021-S Type 2 American Silver Eagles, but sure enough, that is where those will show up. Of course, that’s another story unto itself, since if the way the Coin Release Days have been going of late is any indication those Limited Edition Silver Proof Sets will quite likely also have ridden off into the sunset before very many of us individual collectors can get anywhere near them. I also noticed that the Mintage for the 2021-S T2 Proof Silver Eagle will be less (200,000 individual + 50,000 in… Read more »

Kaiser, The 2021 W Unc. SAE has a limit of 175,000 coins. But who knows really. Are they going to add this to the Limited Silver Edition set too? I hate to say it, but we have gotten too used to the deception, lying, and corruption that plaques our society. While I’m on a rant, I’d like to know why the Mint feels it needs to charge almost $900 over SPO gold to mint a 1oz coin? I bought several of the 2006 Proof Buffalos when they first came out and only paid $200 over SPO!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Larry, The 2021-W T2 UNC ASE can’t become part of the LESPS because that set can only contain Proof coins. It usually includes the San Francisco Proof ASE, but I think Seth mentioned that the West Point Proof ASE was going into that set instead this year. Okay, now as to why the Mint charges $900 over spot for a one ounce gold coin. The answer is cynically simple (or simply cynical, if you prefer): because it can. Clearly it didn’t have any problem selling out at that price and frightening as it may sound, they probably could have charged… Read more »

Seth,

Could you please let me know how and/or where to find the webpage on the Mint’s site that provides the information regarding the 2021-W T2 as being the ASE that is going into the Limited Edition Silver Proof Set. Thank you.

Rich

Sir Kaiser, interesting history for the United States Mint Limited Edition Silver Proof Set. The year 2012 marked the release of the first-ever United States Mint Limited Edition 2012 Silver Proof Set. Regarding the “W” mint mark $1 SAE Proof coin contained in the sets, 2012 Multi (S)(W), 2013 Multi (S)(W), 2014 Multi (S)(W), and 2016 Multi (S)(W) had the “W” Proof Silver Dollar. The 2015 set was not released, it was delayed and then canceled. Then the sets, 2017 S, 2018 S, 2019 S, and 2020 S contained the “S” mint mark $1 SAE Proof. Finally the upcoming 2021… Read more »

Opps! Correction at the end of comment, should be 299,521 regular sales + 27,440 bulk sales = 326,961 total sales (not 326,521).

Don’t know why I renamed you “Rick”. My fingers are much faster than my thought processes, I suppose. What a calamity!

Seth Riesling

Thanks Rich, you saved me a lot of time explaining this LESPS history. I have purchased them since the beginning in 2012, in spite of their being typically overpriced, but beautiful sets/packaging. I also buy them for my 4 nephews. The earlier sets had the coins inside a large hard plastic holder, but the Mint had problems with the vendor & got rid of that & the coins are now just in individual plastic capsules & come out of their spaces easily.

NumisdudeTX

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich, Wow! That is certainly the most complete history by leaps and bounds and a longshot of the USM LESPS I have ever had the very good fortune to come across. Thank you so very much, Rich! There are at least two kinds of history when it comes to coins and I get excited about both of them. One of course is the history of the world as represented by the coinage. The other is the history of the coins themselves, and that is the part I got from reading your essay on Limited Edition Silver Proof Sets; most excellent… Read more »

Kaiser – Talk about what the Mint does & doesn’t do…they just refused to release the names of the 18 coin dealers/companies in their new Authorized Bulk Purchasers Program…How rude is that?! FOIA filing time… we taxpayers have inquiring minds. This U.S. Mint Director David J. Ryder has set up his own city-state as ruler & he is going to get a “pink slip” if fair-minded President Biden finds out about his many shenanigans. His position is a Presidential appointment with Senate approval needed & he was traditionally supposed to tender his resignation on January 20 for the new administration… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

Seth,

Very interesting info there; thanks for all that.

By the way, I wonder if that is the very FOIA already in progress regarding this issue at the Mint, and which so far the Mint’s powers that be have categorically refused to comply with. By now it’s abundantly clear that this particular Trumpling has picked up some of his original Generalissimo’s extremely bad habits, as in being inclined to totally ignore the law whenever it suits him to do so.

You’re welcome. Not sure if you saw/read my comment just above posted about 8 hours ago about the refusal of the Mint to release what should be public info. about the advanced bulk purchaser program…What is your opinion about this situation?

NumisdudeTX

Kaiser Wilhelm

Seth,

The Mint has never had a problem with revealing the names of the Authorized Buyers for its bullion sales program so what’s with this sudden reluctance to release the names of the Bulk Purchasers also? Since the general lack of transparency at the Mint gets more annoying and aggravating all the time, I think things will eventually have to come to some sort of breaking point. Let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.

Maybe the U.S. Mint management has something to hide or feels guilty??!! – no, that couldn’t be the answer could it??

NumisdudeTX

Kaiser Wilhelm

Seth,

Guilty? I doubt that Ryder & Co. even know what that means. Something to hide? Now that’s more along their typical line of work and “thinking”; I’m guessing they have more things to hide than their former (now Floridian Maitre d) Big Boss has offshore tax havens.

The first part refers to True Believers, the second part to their Feckless Leader. Talk about being stuck in a monumental denial rut. Since you have to be deceased to be on a coin, the Mint should be able to put a representation of Reality on a Commemorative Coin by next year.

Seth,

That extremely high cumulative mintage total makes me think that the inflated prices all the biggest re-sellers are currently charging for the 2021-W Type 2 Proof American Silver Eagle are way beyond ridiculous. Besides, who would want to pay so much for what is in fact a rather common coin?

Agreed Kaiser – Coin collectors have historically paid more for, & bought more of a first year of issue new design coin & a last year of a coin. It seems to be a “fad” that the marketers (the Mint) & dealers take advantage of (the “I must have some if they are new ones or the last year of issue ones). Unfortunately, these Type 2 ASE $1 coins are common. The $73 price isn’t too unreasonable for a Proof silver coin. But, paying $125-150 or more to a coin dealer for these raw coins or paying much more if… Read more »

Carl Warren

Seth,
I think you just gave 3rd party graders a new label designation – first year of issue, last year of issue. Add that to the first strike, first release, early release labels, now you really got a primo coin.

I also don’t like the new reverse. The olive branch looks like a dead twig and the eagle doesn’t look proportional. Like the left wing did some serious weight lifting.

Larry T

Seth and Carl, I agree about the “eagle landing” design. Its right wing looks weird and incomplete. We either need better artists (don’t hold your breath for that) or go retro.

Rob S

I like the design better than the gold Type 2 “parakeet”. I’ve grown accustom to it. At least it HAS wings.

Larry T

Good one!

Carl Warren

Rob,

While I’m not fond of the type 2 silver reverse, I’m glad, so to speak, that they didn’t go with something similar of the type 2 gold. I wasn’t fond of the type 1 gold reverse either. Eye of the beholder thing you know.

Seth Riesling

Carl Warren –

Some of the grading services have such labels for awhile now. First year of issue & last year of issue – but you don’t see them that often for some reason. Just another way for them to make an extra $5 or more for a few words that don’t really mean much per se.

Ahem. Left winger in the house. Anyway, how’s about a “Quit the mint,” slab insert? Or, maybe, “Gouged by the mint for the last time!” slabbed BS70 or FU69 graded $1 innovation brass slug?

Um, sure — whatever you say. I like the foot-stomping Panzerlied song in “Battle of the Bugle” — although I never could figure out where they found mountains in Belgium. I know how to say, “Thank you,” and “onion” in Tagalog. Why is it “99 LUFTballons?” I mean, doesn’t “luft” mean “air” and balloons generally, although obviously not always, are filled with air and float in the air? Seems unnecessarily redundant, duplicative and repetitive (you can say that again). Is it the whole ink pen/pig pen thing all over again? Does one really need to specify that it’s an “air”… Read more »

Oh, and I still don’t understand why it’s necessary to distinguish that they’re “air” balloons. It’s a writer/word fetishist thing. I’m not the only one. English translations of the title call it, “99 Red Balloons.” Can I even trust Kraftwerk any more? Edith Piaf? Madonna? Does the Ring Cycle really have to be so long?

I think I know how they will correct this.
For the 5 different family member’s accounts I secured coins for, I got 5 order emails, and 5 confirmations.
as detailed in the other thread, I had 7 pending charges against my credit card (classic mint shenanigans).
anyway … all those errant charges have now disappeared, and I only have charges for the two sets which have changed status to SHIPPED.

So it would appear that even with an order, and a confirmation email, the mint still has the ability to just not bother fulfilling the order.

Chris Terp

Yep, got “charged” twice for shipping on the Morgan New Orleans Silver Dollar. PayPal doesn’t process anything until item ships; so I’ll need to monitor charges come October when coins are scheduled to ship.

The two 2021 Proof W Type 2 ASE’s I ordered, arrived in the mail yesterday. The coins are beautiful. Despite all the ordering hassles and complaints about mintage numbers, etc., if you are a collector and appreciate these coins as works of art – then you will be quite pleased when you finally see one of these with your own eyes.
I haven’t yet set them side-by-side to compare the original vs. new reverse. Something to look forward to.

Having said that, the 2021 Proof Gold coins which go on sale today also look beautiful…but at $315 for the most affordable (1/10-oz.) one, I will pass.

Welp, received my 2021-W Proof Silver Eagle (Type 2) today. Coin terrific! Disappointed in its packaging. Cheap, thin plastic base that coin sits in. Gone are the days when getting felt covered hinged box w/a small metal Federal Eagle on it.

Pay more money for them now and packaging looks substandard. When I get coin from Royal Mint, etc., packaging well done and gives you some semblance that the minters take pride in their product to put it in quality packaging.

So, you can buy velvet boxes from the Mint for bullion coins. $299 for 100 boxes. Just $3 per box … and they couldn’t include that with a premium/limited coin?

That’s exactly right. If you need proof, just do a little shopping at your local grocery store. Buy a pint of ice cream and you get a 12 oz. container of the product. Most consumers don’t even notice and are just happy the price hasn’t gone up.

You’re welcome Carl. Good decision. This packaging is a disappointment.

Fearful though the bean counters will see the profit and make this standard though.

Wonder what my Morgan packaging will look like when ships out this October?

Why isn’t US Mint Advisory Board suggesting better packaging? Who is Advisory Board representing – collectors or someone else?

Big increases in pricings we’ve seen for US Mint products. Royal Mint packaging still up to snuff though from Music Legends coins I’ve purchased.

Yes, higher for two reasons:

1) Exchange rate
2) Royal Mint produced many more collector items and at lower mintages than US Mint, raising RMs costs.

US Mint raised their prices to reflect what their competition is doing but producing only mass quantities of fewer products (yes even collector items) and only raised prices for profit not to be in line with what competitors doing.

2021 is an exception in some sense with the mintings of commemorative Morgan’s and Peace Silver Dollars but still much less than a typical year in what US Mint’s competition product line.

You mentioned the US Mint’s price increases as being purely for profit rather than to maintain a competitive balance, and I totally agree with that. What made the inanity of the price jumps so obvious was not just their size but which products they were applied to. Specifically, the fact that bronze medals had their prices quadrupled speaks to giving no serious thought to any awareness of customer needs and/or preferences and was a dead giveaway as to how extremely… Read more »

Daniel, What struck me was how large the coin box is for a single coin. Maybe if those in charge were really concerned about our environment they would consider a smaller footprint (packaging.) Is the coin of similar size to our ASE coins? And are you required to get authorization from someone to dispose the container? What are your ‘environmental regulations” or is that their way to say recycle?

Daniel

Ha, I hadn’t thought of that. But yes, it would be about recycling (or lack of). The product isn’t actually cardboard, so wouldn’t be able to be put in your cardboard garbage bin. Rather it would need to go in regular garbage. That said, they are putting any disposal concerns straight back onto the consumer. Nice.

yep, our 1oz coins are the same as yours (40mm). Stupidly big packaging is why I’ve run out of room in my safes.

I bought the Mints 5 oz. ATB P Silver Quarters and know how much space they need. But at least they are 5 oz’s!

Color me silly, but I’ve always found it exceedingly peculiar for a five ounce silver coin to sport a 25 cent face value. Seems absurd to me.

True enough, a beautiful coin should have an attractive holder.

Received my type II silver eagle today and at first glance, it looks like there is a turkey leg for a wing! Moving forward, I will always refer this coin as the turkey leg instead of a “type II”.

Considering the amount of headaches this coin caused, and a need for a good lie down afterwards … maybe “turkey leg” is more than appropriate
