2011-2012 Silver Proof Sets

United States Mint sales updates have ended for the last two annually issued Silver Proof Sets. The 2012-dated set ended with sales that are the lowest going back to the first annual one issued in 1992.

The 2011 Silver Proof Set went on sale January 25, 2011 and went off sale on December 31, 2012 — just like the U.S. Mint said it would in a message on its website several weeks earlier. The 2012 Silver Proof Set launched on June 4, 2012 and surprisingly sold out on January 2, 2013.

Final sales are listed below for silver proof sets issued by the United States Mint since 2008. As mentioned, the 2012 set notched the lowest sales in the product line. The previous low occurred with 1995 Silver Proof Set that had a mintage of 549,878.
