Sales of silver bullion American Eagles passed the 10-million mark. With the first quarter of the year nearly finished, it makes a handy point to stop and consider how many coins might be sold this year. Resist the temptation to simply multiply the number by four to reach 40 million.
The Lincoln Coin and Chronicles Set arrives this week with a sellout number of 51,000. That’s 1,000 over the maximum allowed, but not to worry. That will be whittled back to the 50,000 by the time all credit card and other problems are worked through.
More big jumps occurred in the proof American Eagle numbers and then they went off sale. The six-quarter clad proof set has been added to the page and 2001 Kennedy half dollar bags removed. More changes are coming.
