According to the US Mint’s website, the 2010 Proof Gold Eagle individual one-half ounce option has sold out. The product has been moved to the “No Longer Available” section with the ordering buttons removed and “Sold Out” in their place.
This is a very surprising development since according to the latest US Mint sales report, the individual one-half ounce option had sold only 10,131 out of the 15,000 product limit. This suggests that nearly 5,000 coins were ordered in the past few days.
If the sell out did actually occur (in some cases US Mint products have been marked “sold out,” only to later return later), perhaps the other available 2010 Proof Gold Eagles also experienced similar surges in sales during the past few days.
As of December 19, the individual one-quarter ounce coin had sold 7,930, leaving 8,070 of the product limit available. The one-tenth ounce coin had sold 17,871, leaving 9,129 available. The 4 Coin Set had sold 31,846, leaving 7,154 available.
The individual one ounce option had previously sold out on November 1, with the entire 25,000 product limit purchased in less than a month.
