Are buyers losing interest in the proof 2011 silver American Eagle? Only 52,050 more were taken in the latest week, bringing the ongoing tally to 460,041. To equal last year’s sum, the Mint needs to move another 400,000 coins. Will it do it? Perhaps some big buyers will help it out. Sales limits were lifted July 15. Now you can purchase any quantity you have the cash to pay for.
Collector interest continues high in the Yosemite and Grand Canyon 5-ounce America the Beautiful 2010 collector coins. Yosemite has reached the sellout stage and the waiting list notice on the Mint’s website is now the real deal.
For Grand Canyon, it is likely that the remaining coins will be snapped up in short order. After all, how long can 4,874 coins last?
Some strong numbers were registered by the proof American Eagle gold coins. Nothing like a pending price increase to move the fence sitters into action. Some 2,262 one-ounce coins were bought.
