Editor's Note: The following is a statement issued by the U.S. Mint via email on Aug. 5:
Due to high demand for the American Eagle 2019 One Ounce Silver Enhanced Reverse Proof Coin (product 19XE), the United States Mint wanted to ensure that all sellable inventory was made available to the public for sale. A total of 97 units recently became available due to order cancellations. As transactions were cancelled, the product was inventoried and inspected per Mint standard processes. Today the Mint was working to move the inventory in our system to prepare it for sale. During that process, an error was made and the product was made available for sale via the Mint’s website and immediately sold out. All 97 coins were sold this morning. Our “Remind Me” features automatically activated and we notified 43,127 people via SMS, and 30,907 people via email about the availability of this product. We expect another small number of units to become available for sale in the coming days. They will be placed on the Mint’s website as they become available.
