On June 6, the U.S. Mint will kick off the month with a pair of of uncirculated silver and gold American Eagles, each sold separately — $76 for the uncirculated Silver Eagle and $3,170 currently listed for the price of the uncirculated Gold Eagle. The Gold Eagle’s actual price can change weekly depending on the average price of gold, with the current price based on gold’s average of between $2,300.00 to $2,349.99 an ounce.

Like last year’s coin, the Silver Eagle has no mintage limit. This year’s Gold Eagle is capped at 13,000 units compared to last year’s coin which has a stated mintage of 10,000 units. For some perspective, U.S. Mint sales data through May 26 show totals for the still-for-sale individual 2023-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle at 138,210 and those of the 2024-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle at 6,412.

Originally scheduled for release on May 23, the 2024-W $50 Proof American Buffalo Gold Coin is now set to launch on June 13. Limited to 16,000, the coin is composed of 1 ounce of .9999 fine 24-karat gold and has been issued annually since 2006. Its price can also change weekly. If the gold coin had launched today, it would be $3,240.

On June 17, the Mint will introduce the 2024 Dr. Mary Edwards Walker quarter. Walker was a Civil War era surgeon, women’s rights advocate, and abolitionist. She is the only woman to receive the Medal of Honor.

This coin is the third quarter design for this year and latest addition to the U.S. Mint’s ongoing American Women Quarters™ program, which began in 2022 and aims to recognize the remarkable contributions of women to American history. Five new designs will be released each year until 2025.

Product options will include rolls and bags of the quarter in circulating quality, with prices ranging from $40 to $60.

Booted to later in the year for another time, the 2024 Silver Proof Set, initially set for release on April 23, then changed to May 15, and now scheduled for June 27, features the year’s circulating coins. The set includes a total of 10 coins, with 7 of them struck in 99.9% silver, and is priced at $130.

Product limits, product prices and product release dates follow.

REB

June should be the month of the Buffalo Proof & the Silver Proof Set for me. Of course, the Mint may just decide to delay their releases again.

Rick

REB I’m thinking you have the entire set of Proof Gold Buffs including the ’08 fractionals? If so I compliment you. That set seems much more achievable to many Gold Proof fans than your Proof AGE set..By a lot! I have one Proof Gold Buffalo(well sort of PF)in my keeper collection. I had ordered it week(s?)after its release from the Mint in 2013. Yeah that one, and I feel fortunate that it was a nice, non returned, non flawed piece given my delayed move to order it. It is no rarity by any means(maybe the highest mintage?), but beautiful nonetheless…… Read more »

Nice Proof-70 Buffalo! I do have the complete herd of Proof Buffaloes, including the 2008 calves. The old buffalo nickel design was my grandfather’s favorite. He did give me a 1923 Peace dollar when I was a kid but I think of him most often when I get the Buffalo each year.

Tony@GA

Kudos Reb for remembering. I think that is so important that we give out coins along the way and create memories and possibly a passion for coins.

Love that sir!

REB

“I think that is so important that we give out coins along the way and create memories and possibly a passion for coins.” Completely agree. I remember (and still have) the gifted coins from my youth – a dime from my birth year that I got from a guest speaker in elementary school, that 1923 Peace dollar from my grandfather, the 25 Eisenhower dollars I got for winning a chess tournament in junior high, and a set of the last coinage of the Soviet Union given to me by my mother. Most of the gifted coins’ values are a fraction… Read more »

Rick

That’s what it’s all about right there. Those youthful coin and other gifts & prizes to create great memories. Even a ribbon on “Field Day” felt great, whatever color the ribbon was!
Chess is fun. Back in my wild 20’s some buddies and I would have chess drinking bets/matches for fun. Similarly we would do the same with golf. Good times before settling down for a family. Now I really feel like a nerd lol.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,
If the term “nerd” is applied to those interested in pursuing unique activities most other people have no inclination to know about then I might suggest wearing the nerd badge with honor.

Rick

Spot on! And I’m finally getting old enough to not even “give a damn” what one thinks of me anymore anyway. I suppose that comes with maturity and age, as you must well already know.
When I was a kid, at some point I believed that Chess, Golf, and Coins = Nerd! But not anymore!

Kaiser Wilhelm

I know, Rick, it does seem to take quite a long time to get to the point at which we realize that what the value of what anyone else thinks of us amounts to less than a hill of beans as the the old saying goes, except of course in the case of our loved ones whose opinion we will always value and cherish.
As far as nerding out, I’m ready to go all the way and then some.

As “Cag” once said, “I’ve given away a boat load of coins.” That was one thing we had in common.

Cheers

Kaiser Wilhelm

REB, that is such a great story. I found it very moving that this annual event always takes your mind back to him. Even more so than your love of coin collecting it appears the biggest gift you received from him is that warm memory.

Kaiser Wilhelm

PF70, Rick! Bravo, hurrah and hoozah! By the way, the grade is where my eyes always go to first, which is rather funny considering I’ve never had a coin graded. 😉

Rick

Thank you! The coins that I personally send in and that’ve been processed, I go straight to the photo since I’ve already seen the grade via email. If the photo has been paid for that is?=($5.per coin). That price is well worth it to me as it enhances the overall experience. Not to mention a “verification” in a way for me to recognize the unique markings that I’ve noted on said coin(s). Also present are the “surprise” markers that always appear under that online high magnification! Imaging is also a solid ID for any future owners/heirs of the coin(s). They… Read more »

It’s a keeper!

AKBob

Definitely a Keeper!! When that Rev Proof came out, I purchased 5 of them, I love RP coins!! I sold ALL of them. I was really disappointed in the Mint, if I remember correctly, there was a 30 day window or something like that and it would be produced at however many were produced. I thought there’d be way too many for any real upside. I think I was right as it’s seems it’s basically gone up as the Mints gold prices and spot prices have risen. In that respect, it’s been a good investment. I think it sold for… Read more »

AKBob,

I’ll preface this comment by saying that I may just be looking at things from a perspective that has gradually been altered by the common and typical effects of getting ever older. I can’t, however, help but have a rather steadily growing belief that far too many participants in the labor and/or professional ranks no longer take their work as much to heart as they perhaps ought to be and/or likely once did.

even the reverse proof presidential “golden” dollars?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick, I wouldn’t even be able to find the right words to describe the total beauty of that coin. I will say, my friend, you’ve got yourself a true winner in every meaning of the word right there!

And an upgrade from a ribbon to a Medal! Thanks!
Love the coin, it’s been ‘rediscovered & refreshed’ in a way!?
Sort of like my ‘Junk’ silver box, it just keeps on giving after being in the dark for so many years….

Kaiser Wilhelm

Sorry I wasn’t able to bestow a Gold Reverse Proof 70 Medal upon you, so I’m hoping this Gold Chocolate will do the trick.

E 1

That’s an insane beauty.

Cheers

Rick

It is thanks, and I couldn’t be happier to see it in it’s friendly new home. It’s in a place that I can access with ease, with a smaller footprint to boot. No more risk of tearing up the outer sleeve of its former brown coffin. It has come out of the dark and shines brightly…

Here’s another Reverse Proof that has awaken from the depths of its former big blue coffin. The 2011 25th 5 coin set, and looking quite chipper I might add. It just “flew in” today Eagle one…

We can’t allow the -P coin to be left alone. The 25th 5-coin companion -S coin must stay near…

I know this -S coin below brings back the “bad deal memories” that you were sucker-punched with, as this coin and others(Top ASE Registry set ruined by surprise milk spots), but I wanted to share with you my fabulous, spot free 2011-S ASE fresh from my “Lucky Batch” submission…

Rick,

Fabulous for now. 2009-2015 are the years to be cautious about.

That darn toilet seat add is getting to me. My wife has her own toilet and keeps the seat down to prevent her from falling in at night and breaking a hip. I have my own toilet and I keep the seat up so I don’t pee all over it at night. I had to look through 90 gadget adds to get to the toilet seat. I remember how my grandmother called it the “Turlit.” I remember asking her if turtles lived in there. So, she bought me a bunch of pet turtles and an aquarium. I think we scared… Read more »

E1, I would just like to Thank YOU, for sharing your collection (photos), insight and experience with us here! What I am really enjoying, even tho I’m not a Cent/Penny collector, is the information about the cent/pennies! I wish I was a collector of them as they truly are collectibles, not really that expensive for the most part compared to other denominations, lots of history, etc. I have some of the “V’s” now, both raw and graded, mostly because of YOU. A lot of what you share can be used for collecting other coins as well! I just find there’s… Read more »

AKBob,

You are welcome, Thank you.

Also, collecting pennies can teach one the finest disciplines in numismatics without breaking the bank. I like to be thorough. I collected other types of American coins too. But, they come and go over the decades. Long gone are the Saint Gaudens, Gold Indians, and CC Morgans. I was just a custodian of those beautiful artifacts and passed them on. But the knowledge of numismatics, I’ve been able to keep.

Cheers

Kaiser Wilhelm

 “I was just a custodian of those beautiful artifacts and passed them on.”

Those words of yours, AKBob, are indeed a lovely metaphor for life in general and a great vision for what passing through it with the proper grace is all about. Besides, as the vastly underappreciated band “The United States of America” declared on their eponymous debut album in 1968, “Reality is only temporary.”
