The United States Mint has just revealed the pricing and ordering details for the 2013 American Eagle West Point Two-Coin Silver Set (S40).
Each set will include one reverse proof Silver Eagle and one enhanced uncirculated Silver Eagle struck at the West Point Mint and bearing the “W” mint mark. There have been previous indications that both of these coins will remain exclusive to the special set.
The price for the two coin set will be $149.95. This is the same price that was charged for the 2012 San Francisco Silver Eagle Set, available from June 7, 2012 to July 5, 2012.
There is no stated mintage limit and no household limit imposed for the upcoming sets. Rather they will be available for ordering only during a four week window from May 9, 2013 at 12:00 Noon ET to June 5, 2013 at 5:00 PM ET. The sets will begin shipping in late June. Last year’s San Francisco Set was also offered during a four week window and reached final sales of 224,981.
The product details for the 2013 West Point Silver Eagle Set make no mention of a specific anniversary being commemorated. Previously, there had been indications that the set was intended to mark the 75th anniversary of the West Point Mint or the 25th anniversary of the West Point facility gaining full mint status. Instead, the product description indicates that the set follows the Mint’s tradition of offering special American Eagle coin sets. This perhaps suggests that the special two coin sets will become a recurring annual event.
The pricing, release date, and other details were revealed on this preliminary product page on the US Mint’s website.
