As has been the case lately, 2021 silver American Eagles are at the forefront of U.S. Mint product releases this week. You will see two new items added to the charts: the 2021-W uncirculated silver Eagle with the new design (listed under Collector Eagle Sales) and the 2021 silver Eagle reverse proof two-coin set of both old and new designs (listed under Sets and Singles).

Released on Sept. 9, the silver unc. Eagle posts an initial sales total of 173,247, though the quick sellout means it hit its maximum mintage of 175,000.

Available to collectors on Sept. 13, the reverse proof Eagle set came in at 124,251 in sales. Similarly, it has reached its mintage limit of 125,000. The Mint is in an adjustment period.

On the bullion side, we are also seeing an uptick in Eagle sales for the month of September. Both 1/2- and 1/4-ounce gold bullion Eagles are now on the board, and the silver Eagle has reached an impressive September total of 2,735,000.

The final addition this week is the Coin and Chronicles Set for George H.W. Bush. It contains a George H.W. Bush Presidential dollar reverse proof coin and silver Presidential medal, a postage stamp and a Barbara Bush First Spouse bronze medal. It has logged 7,103 in sales since its Sept. 17 release.
