The 2021-W $100 Proof American Liberty Gold Coin was the U.S. Mint’s best weekly seller

The United States Mint released last week the U.S. Coast Guard 2.5 Ounce Silver Medal and the 2021 American Liberty Gold Coin.

Standouts from the Mint’s latest sales data include totals for the pair of products as well as adjustments to 2021 Proof Silver Eagles and 2021 Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars.

Coast Guard Medal Debut

Released Aug. 17 for $160 and limited to 10,000 pieces, the Coast Guard medal marks the second product from the U.S. Mint’s Armed Forces Silver Medal Program. The large, 2.5-inch diameter collectible logged a six-day sales total of 8,213 units, representing 82.1% of the mintage, making it the Mint’s third best weekly seller.

The first product from the Mint’s medal series honors the U.S. Air Force. It registered sales of 9,302 units through six days and shortly later became unavailable. The latest sales stats has the Air Force medal down 9 to 9,967.

2021 American Liberty Gold Coin Debut

Released Aug. 19 for $2,715 and limited to 12,500 pieces, the 2021-W Proof American Liberty Gold Coin lasted for roughly 24 hours before selling out. The U.S. Mint has it at 12,374 units, ranking it first in weekly sales.

2021 Proof Silver Eagles

Released less than two weeks ago, on Aug. 12, the San Francisco-minted 2021-S Proof American Silver Eagle, Type 2, saw a decrease of 109 units for the individually sold option (product code 21EMN) and an increase of 262 units for the 40-coin bulk option (product code 21EMN040). Combined, sales of the coin advanced 10,371 to 224,287.

Meanwhile, overall sales of the West Point-minted 2021-W Proof American Silver Eagle, Type 2, fell by 9,696 to 397,875 coins.

2021 Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars

Finally, the six centennial editions of Morgan and Peace dollars saw across-the-board declines that ranged from the low 20s to nearly 500. The two Philadelphia-minted coins dropped the most with 2021 Peace dollars down 442 to 199,547 and 2021 Morgan dollars off 499 to 174,478.

How is it OK for the US Mint to sell more of a product than the product limit? For example, Product 21EFN (“Type 2” American Eagle 2021 Gold Proof Four-Coin Set) has a “product limit” of 10,250. But the US Mint production report shows that 12,635 of those items have been sold. There are other similar examples.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Paul, Good catch, and yes, there are in fact other examples of the numbers of an item sold exceeding the Product Limit, and some of them in a much more egregious fashion than this instance at that. Except for those buyers of these coins to whom the final mintage matters in regard to resale value, this particular case is a positive in that it offers over two thousand chances for collectors who would have missed out on the prescribed release to acquire one of these sets for their own collection. Aside from the obvious detriment to flippers, the other possible… Read more »

Sir Kaiser, how do you interpret this sales report of “the two Philadelphia-minted coins dropped the most with 2021 Peace dollars down 442 to 199,547 and 2021 Morgan dollars off 499 to 174,478” as outlined above. I am a bit surprised by it considering how popular the 2021 Peace and Morgan Dollars seemed to be out of the 6 coin set.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich,

These cancellations have been taking place across all varieties of the Morgan Dollars and the Peace Dollar starting right after the first week this series went on pre-sale. It could be any combination of individuals experiencing buyer’s remorse, re-sellers rethinking their anticipated need for product, or some credit cards being rejected.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich,

I meant to say pre-order, not pre-sale, but I’m sure you already figured that out.

Rich

Thank you, that makes a lot of sense. I guess when you have pre-orders with up to 5 months time before they are fulfilled (actually paid for and delivered) anything can happen during that long duration.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich,

You’re very welcome.

Yes, that long pre-order interval certainly opens up many possibilities. Pointing out that anything can happen, especially when there is no financial commitment until the coin is shipped, hits the nail right on the head.

Daniel

Kaiser Wilhelm

Daniel,

Many thanks for posting these mintage/product charts as they have assisted me greatly in cementing my understanding of exactly what “None” means as it applies to either Mintage Limits or Product Limits.

One can immediately determine from looking at the four brackets above that “None” in all cases means “Not Applicable”; it does not on the other hand in any way have anything to do with “Unlimited”.

From what we have seen in the past several months, it seems the US Mint has “soft” limits for the American Silver and American Gold eagle products. However, they seem to follow the limits for the Armed Forces medals, Morgan dollars, Peace dollar, American Liberty, etc.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Scarecrow,

Exactly right. Kudos on that!

Scarecrow,

I’m sure you noticed that with a Product Limit of 300,000 the 2021-W Type 2 Proof ASE reached a sales total of 407,571 prior to this week’s 9,696 reduction in orders.

Additionally the 2021-S Type 2 Proof ASE with a Product Limit of 200,000 has with this weeks addition of 10,218 reached a sales total of 224,287.

It’s plain to see how very precisely the Mint remains within its set guidelines!

Spot on! So what is going to happen with the reverse proof ASE with supposed limit of 125,000? Will the US Mint follow their published limit as they did for the two coin-1/10 oz gold set (5000) or sell more like they did for the type 2-4 coin gold proof set (published limit of 10,250 but actually 12,600+)?

It doesn’t matter to me as I will be in the queue hoping that I can purchase the set, but it may matter to those who look more closely at total mintage.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Scarecrow,

I believe it is possible the Mint will adhere to the published Product Limit for the Type 1 & Type 2 Reverse Proof American Silver Eagle Two Coin Set; in fact, I think that it will.

On the other hand, all bets are off in regard to the 2021-W Type 2 Uncirculated American Silver Eagle with a published Production Limit of 175,000; that one will likely go as much over as demand (usually driven by the Mint’s cadre of favored re-sellers) requires.

Something i have never understood…what is it exactly that makes a “MANUFACTURED” rarity. We have Morgans …we have peace…we have ASEs….relatively 200,000 or so mintages….yet we have coins like law enforcement ,Christa Macauluffe, BASKETBALL… dollars ETC…that have INITIAL higher mintage limts…yet are selling WAY below that established for the other dollars and will likely be below that of the morgans etc…….hence and scarcer quantity in the end.

Kennygee

domenic, Here is what I believe and I been collecting for quite a few years. If it is a baseball, football, basketball, US Marshall, breast cancer, or any commemorative coin the mint offers, then decide if you like it or not. If you love the design and like the cause the extra $5.00 is going to, then buy it. Don’t worry if it will go up in value or not. (Unless you are a flipper) (Example) I bought a 2 1/2 oz. Coast Guard medal for $160.00 and I have never been in the Coast Guard. I have never bought… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

Your explanation of the ins and outs of collecting commemorative coins is brilliant. I don’t think you missed anything regarding this topic; I for one after reading it feel like I know most everything I need to know about commemoratives.

domenic, the best example of an instant “manufactured” rarity produced by the US Mint was the 2019-S $1 SAE Enhanced Reverse Proof. Knowing full well that the most valuable and rarest Silver American Eagle Proof is the 1995-W $1 SAE Proof coin with a mintage of only 30,125, the Mint purposely set the mintage limit for the 2019-S $1 SAE Enhanced Reverse Proof coin at 30,000 in an attempt to sensationalize it as the lowest mintage SAE (Proof) dollar of all time. Well this tactic worked, and the “little guy “collector”” could not even come close to successfully ordering it… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich,

First Kennygee regaled us with the complete lowdown on commemorative coins, now here you are with your at least as erudite and doubtless similarly thorough exposition regarding the Mint’s manufacturing (double entendre most certainly intended) of instant so-called “rarities”. Many thanks for that.

I’m glad you pointed out that until collectors fell victim to this brazenly overt con game and purchased these obscenely overpriced ducats they were only worth the Mint’s $69.95. It was the willingness to be a victim of this blatant grifting that served to validate the state of “rarity” and the consequent sky-high prices.

domenic, A “natural” rarity is a coin that has over the years as the result of an extremely low initial mintage and/or due to attrition over time seen its numbers (or at least the quantity in the highest grades) greatly reduced. A manufactured or intentional rarity is one that is consciously planned to meet the same criteria as a “natural” rarity but without requiring the usual passage of time, in other words a highly desirable coin immediately in very short supply due simply to the Mint’s production planning rather than purely by accident. The problem with the commemorative issues and… Read more »

Hopefully, the IG investigation will include why the mint was/is going over their stated limits (and who benefited and why) and sales of coins subsequently sold (to who and why) that were promised to be destroyed instead. Not only a violation of their rules but most likely various laws. The mint’s credibility is far from being good. Many of times I was not able to get something wanted even with increased limits. Do we need to have coins assayed to see what they really contain? Years ago they apparently did away with such safe guards at the mint. There is… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

chuck, Clearly you are bringing up several different issues, so I’ll respond accordingly. The why of the Mint going over stated limits is tied to who benefitted. The Mint likes to keep its bulk customers happy and the best way to do this is to provide them with a lot of extra product; it’s no more complicated than that. Possible Violation: Exceeded published mintage limits The “expired” coins that were sold at auction instead of being melted down. Possible Violation: Coins past their sell by date should be melted, not sold. The increased limits were not shared with the individual… Read more »

Sir Kaiser, your last point mentioned above is most important. All collector precious metal coins come with a Certificate of Authenticity from the US Mint and all investor bullion coins are coins whose weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the United States government.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich,

I understand the primary issue you are shining a spotlight on here, which is that if these certificates are worth no more than the paper they are printed on and the government guarantees are totally unsupported, then who has any way of knowing whether anything coming from the Mint is what it in fact is supposed to be and certified as such. Quite frankly, it’s no surprise the Mint is under such intense scrutiny now considering all of the not so very nice tricks they have been playing on us over the last couple of years or so.

To Kaiser Wilhelm,
Thank you for your reply. I was thinking about possible criminal law violations, in part, Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud (see Title 18 U.S.C. 1341 and 1343). If investigated by IG and deemed appropriate then referral, to the DOJ for possible prosecution might be warranted. IMHO some form of accountability is needed and long overdue. But as the old saying goes: “it is slim to none and slim left town.”

Kaiser Wilhelm

chuck, You are more than welcome; it was indeed my pleasure. The Mint has been piling up a list of misdeeds that can only exacerbate the lack of trust it has earned for itself of late. It has refused to reply to a Freedom Of Information Request as to the identities of the eighteen Authorized Bulk Purchasers who buy 10% of each Mint item’s Production Limit one week before it goes on sale to the public. In addition, it makes the utterly ludicrous claim that these advance direct to aftermarket sales reduce the usual attendant pricing squeeze, which is an… Read more »

As an example of how the Authorized Bulk Purchasers’ “advance direct to aftermarket sales reduce the usual attendant pricing squeeze,” check out these current credit card sale prices from one of the ABP online dealers for the recently released 2021-S Proof Type 2 $1 American Silver Eagle graded NGC PF-70:
Advance Releases label = $599
First Day of Issue label = $299
Early Releases label = $279
This compares to the US Mint OGP/COA original sale price of $73. Talk about slim pick’ens…

Rich, Thank you so much for these precisely on point details! They speak far clearer than the Mint’s obvious balderdash as to how removing 10% of the total allotted from the reach of the buying public well before Release Days only serves to significantly raise rather than lower after-market prices. The one element of this entire sad charade that appalls me beyond belief and demonstrates an unspeakably onerous degree of down and dirty chutzpah on the part of the ABP re-sellers is that they are charging an extra $300 per coin for the very ones they receive early in what… Read more »

I can’t help but ask, although such an inquiry may in the era of political correctness with trigger warnings and micro-aggressions be considered totally taboo, who on earth is so completely devoid of any functioning gray matter that they would quite happily hand over an additional $300 for a “provenance” that means absolutely nothing?

As the evidence mounts, your already true words ring ever wiser.

Sir Kaiser, maybe someone like this: Italian Artist Sells Invisible Sculpture For Real Money.Salvatore Garau has sold his latest invisible sculpture. The work, titled “I Am,” doesn’t exist except in the artist’s imagination. The buyer gets a stamped certificate in exchange for $18,000. Move over nonfungible tokens. An Italian artist, Salvatore Garau, recently sold his latest invisible sculpture, a work titled “I Am.” It isn’t. The art does not exist except in the imagination of the artist. Garau says the sculpture may be displayed in any light since it’s not there. The buyer gets a stamped certificate in exchange for… Read more »

Rich, It seems to me that an artist who can sell a sculpture that doesn’t exist – or appear in this dimension in any measurable way – except in the artist’s imagination has taken the next step toward post-post postmodern art; that is truly a work of unrestrained ingenuity and limitless creativity! And all for the paltry sum of $18,000, a bargain especially by today’s standards, not even taking into account that it is accompanied by an Official Stamped Certificate of Invisibility. Now, since everything is relative, let us consider that one of three identical “sculptures” of a three foot… Read more »
