Two United States Mint products made their first appearances on the sales tracking tables this week, the uncirculated 2021 Mint Set and the 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set. The sets ranked #1 and #2, respectively, on the weekly top seller list.

Released Sept. 28 and priced at $25.25, the 14-coin uncirculated 2021 Mint Set logged six-day starting sales of 153,895 for one of the slower starts in the product line.

In contrast, last year’s set registered one of the quicker starts with 191,076 sold in seven days. The 2020 Mint Set enjoyed an advantage of built-in demand as its production run was limited 213,000 (due to the effects of COVID-19 at Mint manufacturing facilities), which instantly made it the rarest since 1959 when 187,000 sets sold. Also, the price of this year’s set is a bigger barrier. Last year’s set was also $25.25 but it contained 6 more coins.

The following table lists starting and ending sales for sets issued since 2007.

2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set No Longer Available

Released Oct. 1 for $235, the annually issued Limited Edition Silver Proof Set was expected to sell out because, for the first time, it includes two proof American Silver Eagles — one bearing the classic design and one with the new design. The U.S. Mint earlier in the year offered each of the proofs separately and both sold out rapidly.

Limited to 50,000 and containing 6 silver coins in all, the set held out for about 9 hours before becoming unavailable. Mint stats have its sales at 48,286.

  10. 2020-S Reverse Proof Maryland American Innovation Dollar (+260 to 40,925)

In its latest report, the U.S. Mint published sales data for 310 numismatic products. Eighty-seven of them outperformed their prior weekly gains compared to 31 previously. Not counting the new products to compare apples to apples, 2 increased by more than 1,000 units just like in the prior report.

In addition, 28 products saw their sales reduced compared to 19 previously. The reductions ranged from 1 to 1,434 units with the latter tagged to the 2021-S Proof Silver Eagle, Type 2 — the same coin that jumped by nearly 60,000 in last week’s report. The 2021-W Proof Silver Eagle, Type 2, also fell, dropping 699.

Each of the Morgan and Peace dollar products again declined. Their reductions ranged from 25 to 160. Also, every 2021-W Proof American Gold Eagle, Type 2, product fell. Their reductions ranged from 12 to 156.

Ok,

I’m waiting to hear the cries aboot the reverse set eagles going negative like the privy’s. I’m looking at you Kaiser.

& of course, I kid.

Another x interesting to me was the Mr Ed coin gaining.

ymmv

JWP

BY THE WAY — where is KW?

Kaiser Wilhelm

JWP,

KW, Kaiser First Class, reporting for duty. Mother Superior (she of Blues Brothers movie fame) had temporarily dispatched me on a Mission from God, but I’m back!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Phil,

Caw, caw, caw, caw. For your personal edification, that is the sound of my plaintive cries bemoaning the Mint releases that ventured into negative sales territory this week. 😉

As I’ve recently learned, when the contents of a glass are at the 50% level and we feel the need to decide if it is half full or half empty, there is yet another possibility; pour the contents into a smaller glass and there is no longer any such predicament.

I just have to ask. Which is the Mr. Ed coin?

Kaiser,

Actually, there is a possibility you left out. The contents are 50/50. What one chooses to make aboot it after that is a personal decision. Basically, it is what it is & nothing more no matter how one tries to interpret it.

Mr Ed is my name for ’21 Liberty, & it’s meant in fun. I have one & dig it. I, in no way, mean to say it’s a bad coin design.

Mammoth

My vote is for a Mr. Ed movie. What with computer graphics, they could give Mr. Ed some hilarious facial expressions.

Kaiser Wilhelm

How about we make Mr. Ed and Big Bird into real Super Heroes?

Phil,

That 50/50 gambit may work for us in this parallel universe, but try to explain that unique concept to the entities in the next one over. !Krow ot gniog ton

I tried, you were correct. Didn’t work. But, it did the next one over from there. So that’s something…

And there you are, Phil, newly flush with the awareness of not allowing yourself to be limited to inadequate dimensional flexibility.

Kennygee

Phil,
There is only (7) Mr. Ed coins left as of 8:05 Eastern time. They will be gone by tomorrow. I got one also and I like it. He doesn’t talk to me though.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Kennygee,

If I were you I would raise heck with the Mint for sending you a mute Mr. Ed. The nerve of them!

Not to mention, The Coin Collector’s Guide To Talking With The Mint.

Kennygee,

Wait, what, it doesn’t? Maybe I got a 1 of 1, lol

Kaiser Wilhelm

Phil,

Remember what they said in The Highlander: “There can be only one”, and clearly they were referring to the 2021 High Relief Liberty Gold Coin, but specifically and precisely only the one in your personal possession.

Kaiser,

It has become my Precious…haa

Kaiser Wilhelm

It is good to have at least one Precious. That being said, you’re not keeping it down in a pit having to rub lotion on itself, are you now?

Mammoth

Okay, so they have the 2021 Type 1 ASE Proof, the Type 2 ASE Proof, the ASE Reverse Proof set, and the Limited Edition Proof Set, which contains both types of ASE proofs.

For the 2021 ASE collector who has everything – what is left?
(Hint: See Below)

Word is that COA is so highly coveted it went for six figures at a Sotheby’s auction.

Enamel coins are very popular now, although I won’t own one. What a great investment for your proof ASE. : P

Antonio,

The Canadian Mint puts out pooploads of similar “carp”.

I really find it weird that Morgans and Peace continue to drop…..with none shipped yet…..

I also reaaally do not like how they acct for bulk as a separate number…… Example….isnt say bulk 40 at 600 really mean 24,000 more to the individual coin number. AND…..WHY is that allowed to appear to go over mintage limit??? There is definite fussing going on with the book keeping……. Just give us the numbers plain and simple….. Still appears… Read more »

Domenic V.,

Since as far as we know these coins haven’t been minted yet, perhaps the Mint will end each coin’s production run with the exact number that have been pre-ordered. We’ll see.

Mike Sleezak threw out some hints on his HSN comedy show Monday. His next show, which I believe is the 25th, will have the new Morgan/Peace dollars. He hinted the P,D,S set will be $1200. He didn’t mention CC/O or Peace pricing.

Rich

gman1964, that price Big Mike the Circus Barker threw up of $1,200 for the 3 P,D,S Morgans is about the same as one Texas dealer is selling all 6 of the Morgan/Peace Silver Dollars graded NGC Early Releses MS70 for $390 each (but they are not ANACS!!!!).

Rob S

I saw the mention, didnt hear the price. That much huh? Yowza. So, ~$400 a pop (maybe for the CC and O too?).
Cant wait to at least see them on the show tho.

I also noticed, with the palladium coins dropping a whopping $500, that the sales went back UP by ~300 that they reduced in the last report.
Too late for me, I already sent mine in for grading.

Coinman

gman, How’s this for a bargain? LCR Coins is advertising pre-sale:the 6 coin Morgan/Peace Dollar set in PCGS MS70 for $3695.00!!!!!!! That’s $615 per coin before taxes and (maybe a shipping charge). Let’s wait for the Barker, Mike “Not Enough Coins” Mezack, to set the most ridiculous price possible. He never fails to amuse.

Rich

Coinman, out of curiosity I checked out the LCR Coin web page for the pre-sale 2021 Peace and Morgan Silver Dollar pricing. Here are their individual prices for all 6 coins graded PCGS MS70 First Day of Issue: Morgan with CC privy = $865 Morgan with O privy = $765 Peace = $695 Morgan = $495 Morgan D mint = $495 Morgan S mint = $495 What struck me as most interesting are the much higher prices for the Morgan CC and O privy mark coins compared to the other 3 Morgans, as well as the higher price for the… Read more »

Well, Rich, so that is the price I have to pay for being such a highfalutin snotty-nosed poopy face and ignoring the Morgan Privy Dollars release event.

But upon further thought, as evidenced by my latest shared thoughts here (see comment below) on the price-pumping of the artificially scarcer Privy Dollars to create an entirely bogus and quite disingenuously inflated market, maybe I didn’t make any such big mistake after all. The game is truly afoot.

Rich, I would be careful not to look at that out of context or in a vacuum. At first glance it might appear that the two Privy Morgan Dollars are priced so much higher due to some implicit superiority in the coins themselves. However, if we review what happened during the Mint sale of those two coins we become aware of how completely jammed up the Mint’s website was that day thanks to the massive BOT attack launched by a certain Buyers Group in Brooklyn. Combined with the tens of thousands of purchasing surrogates employed by that very same entity… Read more »

Sir Kaiser, I totally concur. The launch release of the privy Morgans was the last great attack of the Brooklyn Bots, leaving a greater number of collectors empty handed compared to the other Morgans. So now the greedy dealers will try to exploit the circumstances of the perceived higher pent-up demand for the privies (especially for those collectors desiring to complete a 6-coin set). As I mentioned above, at least one dealer in Texas is not discriminating and is charging the same price, $390, for each of the six Morgan/Peace silver dollars (graded NGC Early Releases MS70). The only other… Read more »

Antonio

On the other hand, how many of us will see our Morgans/Peace dollars graded at MS70? Most will be MS69 or lower.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich, We already know what the gambit as played by Pinehurst amounts to; buying original Mint purchases from individuals while offering them a tiny profit on them. For example, if you acquire an $85 dollar Morgan from the Mint, Pinehurst will in their generosity compensate you with a $75 dollar bonus, of which they will take $40 right back for shipping and insurance, leaving you with a grand total of $35 profit. Pinehurst will then in turn re-sell that coin for $400 or so, kicking their own profit up to at least $340 or roughly ten times what they paid… Read more »

So true, Sir Kaiser. Many thanks for the very informative insights and information pertaining to the 2021 Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars at a most important time just prior to their shipping release to the public and being put up for sale by the wheelers and dealers. As you have said many times, “Caveat Emptor!”

Kaiser Wilhelm

That’s 7.24 times the original Mint price. This is precisely why the profiteers such as the dealers, buying groups and flippers try so very hard to clear out as much of the stock as possible every coin release day, so that we collectors have to go to them if we still want the coins. By succeeding in this endeavor they accomplish two things: 1) they drive up the coin prices due to the scarcity they have engineered and 2) they inherit a captive consumer base for their outrageously priced coins.

Great site. Very helpful in collecting. Always on top of the new releases.

Heads Up – Just noticed today, Oct. 8th at 2pm ET the 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set – American Eagle Collection is back on sale and available to purchase with 344 sets still available,

Kaiser Wilhelm

I wonder if anyone has had their 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set shipped yet; mine is still stuck in “Processing” as of Oct. 11.

10648814.jpg
Rich

It looks like most of the 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Sets are still hung up in processing, as well as the 2021-S Proof ASEs ordered outside of the enrollment program. I’m also still waiting for mine.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Thanks, Rich, for the reassurance regarding my obviously unwarranted concern that I somehow was the only one still waiting for my 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set; that is a fairly typical intrusion of common paranoia. “Processing” it is.

I hope you get your 2021-S Type 2 Silver Proof ASEs soon and that we both receive our 2021 LESPS (with two ASEs) before the cows come home or Santa shows up, whichever event happens first.

Yes, shipping notice just received. Looks to be UPS.

Sir Kaiser, I just received my shipping email from the mint (10/12 at 4:30pm ET). So your set should also be shipped out today. Cheers!

Rich

Failed to mention the Mint is shipping the sets the slowest way possible – UPS Ground. So be on the lookout for skid marks.

Rob S

Well, theres UPS / USPS snail mail Smart Post, where they just leave it in your mailbox. 😉

Oh, too late for me, I already received mine. Waiting to send it to be graded.

Rich

Thanks for the precise update, gman1964. By the time I looked, they were gone.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich,

I hope whoever read your notice was very quick to respond as announcements of items becoming available again are typically valid for less than the time it ordinarily takes to get to the relevant item’s web page. And so it goes.

Antonio,

No matter how fast the poor little feller runs, he’ll never make it to the “Place Order” button in time before the item is sold out once again. After all, not even the most ardent numismatist can outrace a BOT, can he?

Here we are….almost mid October…the Morgans and Peace Dollars are still “back-ordered”…….When will we see them start shipping???…..OOOOOh the suspense!

Ooh…now you may have jinxed us, domenic. After all, in realistic terms do you have any idea how long it is between when the Mint will “start shipping” and the moment that each of us actually gets our delivery? As in for-ev-ah!

Questions for soliciting advice on the new 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set and the limited-edition 2021 Reverse Proof American Silver Eagle Two-Coin Set? Is it recommended or advisable to keep these special sets sealed and unopened in their original Mint shipping packaging box as received directly from the mint? If so, why? Is it advantageous to do so if one intends to submit them to PCGS or NGC for grading and slabbing, or for resale purposes? On the flip side, if one decides to do so, it’s disappointing to not be able to verify and view the beauties inside.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rich,

This won’t help you a bit, and I’m sorry about that, but there’s about as much of a chance of me leaving one of my coin deliveries sealed in its packaging as there is of my getting a posthumous Ed McMahon Publishers Clearinghouse Jackpot tomorrow.

Sir Kaiser, I think I already knew what your response would be even before you wrote it.

Precisely!

Antonio

You may already have won a $1,000,000!

Carl Warren

I agree with Kaiser as far as any grading purposes, however, on the resale or even auction side I’ve seen items auctioned in the shipping boxes that have gone for some really insane, and I do mean insane, prices.

This particular item went for $400 plus the 20% buyers premium.

Carl Warren

image is blurry – this is 5 1976 proof sets that you can pick up for 10-15 dollars each

Rich

Thanks for the reply, Carl. Your information on resale and the auction examples are noted. Regarding submission to PCGS/NGC for grading and labeling it most likely is a concern for special sets like the Limited Edition Silver Proof Sets, or for example the 2021 American Eagle One Tenth Ounce Gold Two-Coin Set Designer Edition, which contains coins also released separately on their own (e.g., the 2021-W Type 1 Proof ASE and the 2021-S Type 2 Proof ASE, both released separately and in the 2021 LESPS). So for the grading label to read … from the “Limited Edition Set” on the… Read more »

Carl Warren

Rich, if certified is what people go for with those types of sets then the unopened box is a prerequisite to get that type of label designation.

Personally, I’m not a fan of grading and prefer OGP even with the lower quality packaging the mint has been putting out this year. I just can’t see breaking up that kind of set though, but that’s just me.

Daniel

I keep a lot of stuff in original unopened boxes, but space is now too much of a premium. I’m never going to grade them, so I need to consolidate

Carl Warren

the extra cost to grade and hoping all the coins are graded PF70 (the only grade that matters) just isn’t worth it, IMO

Carl, thank you for the timely reply and all the helpful comments.

Rob S

As one who does get my stuff PCGS graded (have 4 orders that just got there recently), IF you want the label to indicate the coins are from the LE set, THEN you have to send the LE set in unopened. The Designer Set doesnt matter because of the reverse proof / the minting process of the coin. Its obvious, the type of coin. I got a 2018 LE Silver Proof set aftermarket – needed the ASE-S coin, and needless to say it was no longer in the box. So I’d have to get it graded as a “regular” 2018-S… Read more »

Just an aside, and a sort of benchmark –
I just sent over 60 coins in to PCGS (NY to CA), cost over $99 registered mail (a requirement, for security), and a “good” (?) $1800 PCGS grading cost, at various levels (due to potential value – they have service “tiers”). That included some “freebie” vouchers – but still have to pay handling, return shipping.

So that will average to over $30 per coin; some will realize that increase in value, some definitely will not.

Rob S

And a mini-gripe about the PCGS service tiers …
You used to be able to send in 1 oz gold coins under their $2500 value-cap tier. But some have their “blue-book” over that with the base metal price (especially palladium) + the current rarity going on all this year.

They kept their cap at $2500. I felt (wished) they shoulda (woulda coulda) changed their caps –
$300 -> $500
$2500 -> $3500.

But whadda I know??

1 more FYI thing about coins grading perfect 70 … in summary, dont count on it – not all of ’em anyway. Its been bad, especially in recent years. I’ve had proof coins from the 80s grade just about the same as some recent ones. I think the Mezacks and early-release dealers get the best, and maybe even send back their 69s or sub-69s “for us”. Just a hunch. grrrr If I sent more than 2 of any type, I doubt I got all 70, and if there were 2, maybe sometimes both were 70. In 2020, due to the… Read more »

Rob S, thank you so very much for all the useful information and advice, and valuable insights and lessons learned from your experience.

Rob S

No problem, glad to help. This is only my 2nd year as a PCGS member – still figuring some of it out myself, so I’m no expert. But I went into it cold, just followed what help they have online and emailed with ?s and such. They’ll take your money. 😉
I kinda went all-out once I started, kinda the way I can be sometimes.

Antonio

Some coin shows, PCGS and NGS will grade coins onsite. Save on postage and other costs. Of course it’s the larger coin shows if they attend.

Rob S

Good point. Also, if theres a dealer in your area thats a registered member, they can submit for you. I think the nearest one to me was a whole state away. So I went solo, got the experience for myself.
