How many 2011 proof silver American Eagle coins will collectors buy with an issue price $14 higher than the 2010 version?
That was the question every collector was trying to figure out as the coins became available June 30 from the U.S. Mint.
In the last seven weeks of 2010, collectors purchased 860,000 of the coins for $45.95 each. The 2011 offering is priced at $59.95, reflecting the escalating
cost of silver bullion.
All orders from the Mint are charged $4.95 for shipping and handling. To place an order, visit the Mint’s website at www.usmint.gov, or telephone toll-free (800) USA-MINT.
