The individual option for the 2013-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle has now sold out at the United States Mint. The coin does still remain available for sale as part of a different product.
The US Mint had opened sales for the individual 2013-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle on May 28, 2013. This product represents a collector version of the coin struck on specially burnished blanks and carrying the “W” mint mark. This version of the Silver Eagle has been offered previously in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, and 2012.
This year’s coins were priced at $48.95 each for the start of sales. The price was later reduced to $43.95 following a decline in the market price of silver.
According to the latest weekly sales report, the individual 2013-W Unc Silver Eagle has reached sales of 178,572 units.
As mentioned, the coin is also included in the 2013 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set which began sales on November 13 and still remains available. The set contains the uncirculated versions of the four 2013 Presidential Dollars, 2013 Native American Dollar, and 2013-W Silver Eagle. This set is currently priced at $44.95 and has sold 18,006 units to date.
Once the 2013 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set eventually sells out, it seems fairly likely that the 2013-W Unc Silver Eagle will establish a new mintage low for an uncirculated coin of the series with the “W” mint mark.
When the collectible uncirculated version of the coin was introduced in 2006, it had a combined mintage of 466,573 across all product options. This remained the low until a lower total was seen for the 2011-W Unc Silver Eagle at individual sales of 309,927 plus an additional 100,000 coins included in the 25th Anniversary Set for a total of 409,927.
A new low was once again established with the 2012-W Unc Silver Eagle, which had individual sales of 202,504 units plus an additional 28,368 coins included in the 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set for a total of 230,872.
As it stands, the 2013-W Unc Silver Eagle has total sales of 196,578 and counting. Some collectors will be closely watching sales of the 2013 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set to see how much this total grows.
