The CoinNews photo shows a pair of 2022-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagles. The older-dated coin was actually the Mint’s best weekly seller.

For another week, in line with elevated silver prices, U.S. Mint silver products remained popular with collectors. All but one of the Mint’s top ten weekly sellers were silver products.

Buyers appeared determined to find them, even older ones, such as the uncirculated 2022 Proof Silver Eagle, which logged the most sales, and the Silver Proof Sets from 2019, 2021, and 2022, which ranked 5th, 6th, and 7th in popularity. This year’s Silver Proof Set has been delayed for a third time and is now scheduled to launch on June 27.

Here is the roster of the U.S. Mint’s most sought-after numismatic products for the week ending on May 26:

  1. 2022-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle (+2,899 to 163,281)
  2. 2024 Proof Set (+1,945 to 215,012)
  3. 2024-W Proof Silver Eagle (+1,571 to 250,828)
  4. 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set (+1,004 to 49,716)
  5. 2019 Silver Proof Set (+1,000 to 413,708)
  6. 2021 Silver Proof Set (+997 to 303,597)
  7. 2022 Silver Proof Set (+945 to 249,075)
  8. 2024 Congratulations Set (+490 to 22,582)
  9. 2024-P Proof Greatest Generation Silver Dollar (+475 to 24,996)
  10. 2023-S Proof Morgan Silver Dollar (+475 to 351,091)

In its latest report, the U.S. Mint published sales data for 455 numismatic products. The data revealed that 53 products outperformed their sales from the previous week, compared to 88 in the prior report. Five products experienced week-over-week increases of more than 1,000 units, compared to two in the prior report.

In addition, 9 products recorded negative weekly sales, compared to 10 in the previous report. Two of these logged significant losses: the U.S. Army 1 Ounce Silver Medal by 3,203 and the 2024 James A. Garfield Presidential Silver Medal by 662.

Major D

Whoa, here we go again. First off, where in the hell did the 2,899 2022-W Uncirculated Silver Eagles come from and who were they sold to seemingly under-the-table, being unavailable and all? Next, the reported cumulative sales figure for 22EG is now 163,281 and for 22EG040 it’s unchanged at 987 (x40= 39,480) bringing the total to 202,761. This, for a product (22EG) that had a stated limit of 160,000. If this isn’t false advertising, I don’t know what is. If this stands, I sure wish someone would bring a class-action lawsuit against the US Mint for fraud because I’d like… Read more »

Rick

I don’t know? It is weird. So am I missing something with the 22EG cumulative sales you mention? Wouldn’t the single Eagles be counted along with the Bulk 40’s together? Hence “Cumulative”? That’s how I take it. Number shuffling is their game, and they’re good at it. Under-the-table would not surprise me one bit, it’s probably been going on since the late 1700’s over there… So here we go again doing what Kaiser wisely states as “Sheer Speculation” on our part. Either way I wouldn’t fret too hard just yet. Things will settle down. As I’ve said before, it takes… Read more »

Rick, I say “cumulative'” because that’s how the Mint refers to them: “The following sales information represents a cumulative total of net sales demand reported from the launch of each product through the report date. These figures should not be considered final, and are subject to change as audited.” There are actually two products, 22EG which is the stand-alone product, and 22EG040 which is the Bulk-40 and they both have cumulative sales reported every week until they are officially sold out. The Mint never indicates if there is a product limit for the Bulk-40 which I don’t like because it… Read more »

Major D and Rick, Clearly there is a huge amount of information in what both of you wrote regarding the U.S. Mint and its particular pattern of operations, all of which you have so incisively stated, cited, recorded, described, dissected, explained, questioned and disputed and as such already put on exceptionally fine display here. I would in fact say that the two of you have already done an unquestionnably superb job of putting your “cumulative” (pun most certainly intended) fingers on the pulse of a veritable plethora of these Mint facts and/or suppositions. Therefore I find myself beyond hesitant to… Read more »

Major D,  I found the latter section of the second paragraph in your comment above to be very telling as to the likely and/or actual malfeasance by the Mint: “But, to see the stand-alone having recent sales out of nowhere which clearly exceeds its product limit is hard to take. Even if not the final number, if the recent sales are over the product limit why would you even sell them not knowing where the number will end up?” My own question would go yet a step further, Major D, which is why the Mint would even produce one coin… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,
My favorite part of all these “alleged” (just covering my legal rear here) shenanigans and dare we say even say “offenses” by the various powers that be at the US Mint is the self-mandated ultra-hush-hush keeping of the names of the re-seller entities that are the Advance Buyers; it’s like an NSA Top-Secret.

Rick

Indeed, a lot of ultra-hush-hushes over there, too many to count! For example just who was it that scratched a “V” into my $.01 Coin!? Was it Vinny, the P-Mint Hubsman? or Ventris herself!? Perhaps Congress should investigate this atrocity, this defacement!? And while they’re at it–It’s time to blow the PCGS/Mint scam cover-up wide open!!(where’s that foil hat of mine, right when I need it the most)!? Advance Bullion/Bulk Buyers & shenanigans abound! But I’m sure it’s the ones that we don’t see on the Mint’s official list that we should really worry about, no? Well, I’m off to… Read more »

It’s all too ironic, Rick, that the Standard Industrial Strength Tin Foil Hats can protect us from the Alien Brain Eaters but not nearly so much from the various underhanded tactics of our own United States Mint.

Rick

I’m going to agree with you on that Kaiser!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Hooray! Another vote for Kaiser, another step closer in his progress toward membership in the Tin Foil Hat Hall of Fame.

weird-al
c_q

note the 3200 returned army 1oz silver medals (18% of total sold!). what’s up with that?

I’m guessing that perhaps some ‘sales’ don’t actually materialize (people don’t pay) and they sell the same item again, thus counting it twice (it not having been ‘returned’ in that case), basically bad accounting. maybe that happened with these 2900 coins, some dealer went bankrupt and these were tied up in court or something awful like that, then eventually able to be sold. but if that’s true, it seems to happen far too often.

Kaiser Wilhelm

c_q, I can of course only speculate as clairvoyantly as the next guy, but I really don’t think sales are counted twice when returned items are re-sold by the Mint, otherwise those products wouldn’t be counted (and reported, for that matter) as ever having been returned in the first place. My gut feeling is that such excessively large returns can most likely be attributed to the usual suspects, which is to say those particular Big Buyers who have since their latest mega-purchase from the Mint once again encountered the not all that unusual reality of being unable to sell off… Read more »

Tony@GA

100% agree! We should NEVER see sales over the stated limit. Some make their purchases based on the limit.

In other news – silver back over $32 oz –

Stock market and economy up? Precious metals up at same time? Hmmmn!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Tony@GA,
It’s possible that putting a lot of faith in the sanctity of mintage limits might not, from past and ongoing experience with the Mint, pay off all that well. Just saying.

HarryB

The Kaiser is spot on with his observation on mintage limits……always variable where the US Mint is concerned…..Frustrating as it is….

Kaiser Wilhelm

HarryB,
The Mint apparently sets mintage limits of its own accord but the connection between those limits and what eventually happens generally appears to be somewhat tenuous. Frustrating to say the least.

Major D

HarryB, the Mint stated a product limit of 160,000 for 22EG and the sales report now says 163,281. To me, that’s a big problem. I would likewise feel the same if there was a stated mintage limit that was exceeded.

Kaiser Wilhelm

What I find myself wondering regarding all of these egregious production overruns, Major D, is whether the Mint is in fact habitually sloppy, painfully lazy, pathetically careless, innately ignorant, or, and this would in my considered opinion be the far and away worst reason of all, just plain doesn’t give a damn.

Rick

HarryB,
It is great to “see” your voice again! Welcome!

Major D

Kaiser, I agree with Tony@GA about “Some make their purchases based on the limit.” To me, the product limit is a declaration not unlike the percent of silver or any other spec.

Kaiser Wilhelm

This is one of those instances, Major D, when it becomes painfully obvious to me that perhaps I sometimes haven’t at all succeeded in expressing myself the way I really meant to. Which is to say that I was in point of fact implicitly in a state of complete agreement with Tony@GA about the mintage limits being a sacrosanct promise by the Mint to its customers, something I obviously neglectly to adequately convey. As it is, the actual point I was attempting to get across was that regardless of such a stricture on production totals being supposedly etched into place… Read more »

Major D

Kaiser, I stand by my earlier assertion that this is fraud. Proclaiming in a sale it’s one thing then doing/providing another. The Mint gets away with doing this time and again because there are never any repercussions.

Rick

Major,
As I’ve said before, “Things will settle down”. And it’ll work itself out. I would bet that you see the Mintage/sales that you expect to see come around in the next several weeks. I think that I’ve been doing this with the L&B(overly sensitive to #’s)lately…
Here’s something that you said to me recently(paraphrasing)…
“There’s going to be some ebb and flow”…..

Thanks for walking me back, Rick! I actually had a message from the other day that is now lost into the ether– I tried to edit one too many times, first a word here, then a comma there, and after the third time, poof — it was deemed spam. The funny thing about limits is that if the Mint exceeds one that was set by Congress in authorizing legislation, then it would be against the law. But not that anyone at the Mint would be arrested or anything — but it’s fun to daydream.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Wouldn’t it be hilarious, Major D, if the Congress were to make it an absolute requirement for the Mint to produce every single one of the 50,000 Gold (Five Dollar), 400,000 Silver (One Dollar) and 750,000 Clad (Half Dollar) coin varieties Congress has prescribed for each and every Commemorative Coin issued?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Time to get out the pitchforks and light the torches, Major D. 😉

Major D

Kaiser, I don’t think that I’d be allowed anywhere near the lobby of the Mint holding a pitchfork or a torch. But it would make for some excellent TV coverage to try!

Kaiser Wilhelm

I could suggest, Major D, since it has been said there is no such thing as bad publicity, the Mint might welcome the attention.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Major D,
As has so often been the case you once again hit the proverbial nail right on its big flat head. I looked up the legal definition of fraud, and bingo, that’s precisely what the Mint is engaging in when it ignores/exceeds its own mintage limits.

How is this possible?

2024 Silver Proof sets are still not available from the US Mint.

PCGS Cert Number 941826.70/50303485 does not exist in PCGS database.

Unauthorized release?

High quality fake?

Not a presale.

Real or Fake?

There are about 4 of them on eBay today.

This product will be available for sale on June 27, 2024, at 12 noon (ET).

E1,
I see 45 of them in the link below, the cert matches up to said link. Somebody at the Mint has put their hand into the cookie jar.

Welcome back my friend!

Rick,

Ok, I can only assume they are genuine at this point.

As to their current secondary market availability, when currently unavailable from the mint, that is the question?????

Cheers

E 1

Rick,

There are now 100 2024-S Proof Silver Kennedys in the PCGS database. The mint may have started an early roll out of the Silver Proof Sets to preferred customers before the public.

Rick

I agree, and it may also have something to do with the customers that have a subscription? A possible premature subscription release?
I put this question, and a couple of other questions to that seller. Stand by…

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,
In reference to the “possible premature subscription release”, where is the numismatic version of Dr. Ruth now that we need her?

th
Rick

Yes, I forgot about Dr Ruth! As a young man her and I always “came” to the same conclusion! Honesty and openness is key to a great relationship! Numismatically speaking? I think the Ancient Greeks had that one in the “sack”, lest we forget the Romans of course!

Rick,
There’s nothing like referring to a powerful old image on an ancient Greek coin to drive your point home. And with that our discussion is “brought to conclusion”; Bill Clinton’s words, not mine.

Rick

LOL! ✔️

REB

Many years ago when I lived in NYC, I saw Dr. Ruth standing in front of Carnegie Hall. I remember her as a tiny woman. The Google machine indicates that she was 4’7″.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Which is funny, REB, considering that as we men age we lose “height.” In fact, it becomes harder then to stand up tall at all.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick and E 1,
It seems that some of us didn’t get an invitation to the party.
Or…
It is long past June 27 in a parallel but connected universe.

Rick

Yep, the latter, that was it. I’ve been feeling a little “off” all day!

E 1

Rick,

I wonder if there is a difference between the early subscription release coins and the June 27th release coins. The 90-day delivery delay is unusual, and I am curious as to the reasons behind it. There might be something there variety wise. It could just be typos in the COA. However, something caused this unusual delay.

NVDA = more money for coins

Cheers

Kaiser Wilhelm

E 1,

Not that anything isn’t possible, but this option would surprise me.

Kaiser Wilhelm

We’ve likely stumbled onto a quantum mosh pit thanks to the Mint’s tendency to pull our gravitational rug out from under us.

black-hole-gravity
Rick

Indeed they do pull & tug. Some might argue that that, may be a good thing on occasion. To shake things up a bit, or perhaps they are just doing a little housekeeping!?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,
That’s an excellent point. When you’re doing the same thing over and over and over again, like the situation the Mint perpetually finds itself in because it is required to conduct the likely monotonous business of pumping out an umptillion number of coins (especially those ever disappearing cents), it may do the folks at the “coin factory” a bit of good to occasionally perform some hopefully distracting (albeit quite possibly to the outside world rather unsettling) sleight of hand along the way. 😉

Kaiser,

Three Possibles:

1.      It is not what you know, but who you know.
2.      Big Money talks and little money walks.
3.      It’s a good old boys club.

Just as long as I get my FDI Presale. It was 60 days out as of today. Maybe it will get here a little sooner. Hopefully, my guy in Sarasota is on the list.

Cheers

Rick

E1, (Me)… “Hello, I was just curious as to how you managed to get your hands on this Kennedy Coin? It is not available to the public for another month. Do you have a special source? Was this the result of a premature subscription release? Were some of these available at a Mint Gift Shop or a Mint Booth at a Coin show? Thank you very much for any insight that you have in regards to these coins. Thanks!” (The seller of the coin you linked above)… “I bought them on a presale”  ?Ok… If that’s the case E1,… Read more »

Rick,

Ok, that is kinda vague. However, the coins and the slabs are genuine. Well, thanks for your help Rick. I am feeling a bit off today myself. Maybe because I am off today. I’m gonna go sit in the garden for a while and have a couple of cold ones. Nice day today here in the valley.

Cheers

Rick

Rick,
The problem with asking someone a question(s) like that is the inherent uncertainty regarding the reliability of the respondent. It’s like when they ask in court as to whether you promise to tell the truth, since in all likelihood an honest person would tell it no matter what while a liar would lie no matter what he/she promised.

Major D

E 1, man that must have been a long walk for fresh air! Just kidding, glad you’re back! I’d say if the big boys like APMEX and JM Bullion are not selling them, then they don’t have them- and if they don’t have them then chances are these smaller sellers don’t have them either.

Rick

The big boys like APMEX will flood the market with them after the regularly scheduled release. 10s of thousands of these sets will be broken up. It is like clockwork. This is just an observation and an opinion of mine…

Kaiser Wilhelm

Let’s not forget the Advance Purchasers; always first out of the gate!

Rick

Indeed, there are even dedicated “Advanced” TPG labels for the label dedicated!

Major D

Yes, I should have said “don’t have them… yet”.

E 1

Major D,

Thanks

Kaiser Wilhelm

E 1,
One could even think of that array of possibilities as a trifecta since if you have one it leads you to eventually have the others also.

Kaiser Wilhelm

E 1,
My instinctive initial response is that someone is trying to pull a fast one. Of course, my spontaneous reaction has been conditioned by years of experience with people who did not merit trust, so I might just be inclined to come down a bit hard on the cynical side.

Major D

Divine Investments, indeed. Only (713) transactions. I’d stay far away, speaking for myself that is. I wonder, E 1, what PCGS would say if you called or emailed them about this cert number? Does PCGS have a fraud division? And if it’s fake eBay should be notified to shut them down- and I would hope PCGS would do this to protect the integrity of their certs.

As is my habit I did some research on “Divine Investments”. There is enough suspicion-arousing info about them to make you shake your head and hide your wallet!

Rick

AKBob, I received a shipping notice from “our” L&B First strike Gold seller in Miami. My coin will be delivered tomorrow(Thurs)via 2 day FedEx..Yourself? Interestingly, since the coins were delivered to everyone around 10 days ago, I can only surmise that the seller chose the the highest available grading tier? The “walkthrough” service(to the front of the line)at $150 per coin(3-5 days shipped). Add in the First Strike expense at $18, shipping & handling both ways at a reasonable estimate of $10(multiple coins)per coin for a PCGS charge of $178… So the seller spent $3020 per coin at the Mint.… Read more »

REB

A third way the seller comes out ahead: the coin is stolen, thus saving seller the $3,020 purchase price.

Rick

Thanks for that very “calming” 3rd option that you have presented REB!
.·´¯(>▂<)´¯·. (◎﹏◎)(¬_¬ )

Kaiser Wilhelm

The coin is counterfeit, PCGS can’t tell the difference and eBay doesn’t care.

Rick

And now I can finally rest in complete peace tonight! Much obliged Sir!!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Then, as the old saying goes, my work here is done. You’re welcome!

These coins which have not been released yet are graded and verified by PCGS make me terribly suspicious about the management at the mint. Congressional oversight is obviously needed. I would also wonder if PCGS has a person inside who picks first strikes by grade on an inside deal.
The whole operation needs to be looked at VERY closely. It would not be the first time that there was shenanigans going on at mint facilities!

Kaiser Wilhelm

DAVESWFL,
It’s interesting you should bring up the possible culpability of PCGS in this saga of premature coin release, grading and sales, as I was just thinking the very same thing. After all, if the Mint has its finger in this rather questionable pie as the first link then it would make sense a TPG would be required, in fact absolutely essential, as the “middleman” between the Mint and the seller to the public. It’s beginning to seem ever more so that what we’re dealing with is a veritable chain of numismatic impropriety!

Rick, I too received an email from them it’s being shipped!!! Thx for your update/heads up too. I’m hoping my medal will be with my coin too. I was without cell and internet all day today so I’ve got to get a bunch of stuff to do to get caught up. Pretty busy right now, lol!

Well, as always, Good Luck ALL,!!

Rick

It’s good to hear that you have a package coming AK! You would think that your Medal would be on board, eBay order details should reflect it. Besides, 2 day FedEx shipping from FL to AK is a hell of a haul!.. As an aside my coins that I handed PCGS way back in mid-March at the coin show have finally been graded/certified/imaged. You have seen a couple of the coins that I submitted with these coins, but they were on a different order tier and came back quickly. They have not posted these new images yet(20 coins), but the… Read more »
