2015 American Silver Eagle Bullions Will Return July 27

2015-Silver-Eagle-Apmex-Merged

The United States Mint will resume sales of the 2015 American Silver Eagle bullion coin on July 27, according to Reuters. The coin sold nearly three million units on Jan. 12, the day of its release, a number that grew to 21,786,000 by the time sales were suspended on July 7. The nearly three-week hiatus, instated to allow the West Point Mint to catch up on production, has been longer than expected.

The 2015 American Silver Eagle bullion coin has been hugely popular, due in part to a renewed interest in silver as gold prices flounder. The coin can be bought by authorized purchasers at a price determined by silver’s current value as listed by the London Bullion Market Association.

In related news, the recent drop in gold values increases the possibility that the U.S. Mint will lower its prices for gold coins this week.  You can learn more about how the U.S. Mint determines price changes here.

    I am not changing my guess. I still think there are a LOT of people that are Hoping this is the 2nd coming of the 2009 UHR and will Buy. I think 17,500 is a good middle ground. The opening weekend numbers are the only true numbers. The finishing number will Probably be determined by how many the Mint produces in 2015, how long they want to keep ’em around and when they choose to pull ’em…

    Hi cagcrisp,

    Just wanted to let you know I read your reasons to buy/not to buy in the other thread and it dovetails with my own thinking. I am one of those who have been persuaded to take a pass on it. I would like for it to be successful, but I just don’t think it’ll happen. it’s unfortunate given the design turned out better than I expected.

    I’ll go ahead and put in a prediction of 9,000 for opening week and 17,500 by the end of 2015.

    For Those that look at w/w changes in the Mint’s numbers. There is one numbers that sure looks Strange. The Jackie Kennedy Unc shows Total Sales of 4,120 -758. Hard to imagine an adjustment of 15% w/w. That would mean Only 48 unc have been Sold since Opening Week…

    OT: Anyone purchased the 2015 Wedge Tailed Eagle HR PCGS PR70DCAM from GM? I was wondering how much they were asking. Thanks!

    I have no reason to keep up with this series after overkill and exclusive rights to sell them by 1 company. Seems like a sucker buy but that is just my HO…

  13. thePhelps says

    @fm… if that doesn’t tell you that the grading companies have “relaxed” their grading nothing will. I recall probably 20 years ago reading that either NGC or PCGS had stated they would never grade the early coins above MS67 – because they claimed at the time the early mint presses were incapable of creating a higher quality coin.

  14. says

    This latest Mint concoction, also known as the 2015 Lady Liberty HR, is no second coming of the classic 2009 version. It took a long period of time for the ’09 sales to close, and I’m not even sure it met its maximum mintage. But, the aftermarket of the ’09 gradually escalated to high levels and it still sells for a big premium.
    I just don’t see this scenario playing out with this new ’15 version. It doesn’t look to be a winner, but rather more of a costly consolation prize for those who missed out on the ’09.

  15. gary says

    Hawkster… the only “play” presented by the 2015 HR will be submitting the coins to TPG services to get the coveted “Proof-Like” 1st strike label. Of course it bears repeating that (as with the ’09 High Relief) that proof like is obtained by DIE WEAR of regular non-proof (unc.) dies. These egregiously misattributed coins will go for big $$$ . A half ounce coin would have provided a more than adequate canvas size at half the cost and be quite popular possibly.

  16. GoldFishin says

    @Cagcrisp- I wish to change my opening weekend sales to 12, 434. I think the drop in gold prices may further dampen sales as folks wait for a lower purchase price from the mint. The big retailers also still have a large inventory of JK gold coins. I think they are going to be on the conservative side on this one. Also the addition of household limits was announced after my first guess, a sign of desperation in my opinion. I will keep my 12 mo. sales the same.

    Last week, the catalog entry for the March of Dimes Special Silver Set (DM5) was in peculiar state. It indicated “Back Order” but didn’t have a “Back Order” button. Instead, it also indicated “This product is currently Unavailable” and had a “Remind Me” button. It is still in that same weird state.

    Last week, the sales report for this product indicated a decrease of 144 from the previous week. This week’s sales report indicates a decrease of 48 from the previous week.

    Last week, this product was suddenly reported to be available for purchase again at 7:30 AM ET on Saturday, with over 100 sets initially available. This week, … who knows?

  19. Louis says

    Ikaika- You can buy an ungraded 1 oz WTE from Australian dealers now for $75 plus shipping or about $100 on eBay or from the dealers. Why pay double? In fact I got some from Downies that I am almost certain are 70’s.

  20. HarryB says

    @Hawkster: I seem to recall that the 09 UHR was mint to demand with no preset maximum, hence a large mintage. Concerning sales of the 15 UHR $100, I “feel” a sell out quickly, with good profits for flippers who receive their coins early. I am not a flipper, but will purchase 2, hoping for a 70.

  21. DCDave says

    Off topic, can someone please advise how to get the most money selling a coin on ebay? I’ve never done it before, but I have a nice graded Hawaiian commemorative that I’ve had for years, but just acquired another that is a little nicer. Looks like ebay has 10% fee plus PayPal fee. Seems like a lot, and not sure how much interest in classic commemoratives now, but wanted to put it on an auction so it will be done.

  22. thePhelps says

    DCDave – the early commemoratives do quite well on eBay. I am not a hard core seller – so I can’t tell you any secret ways to maximize your profits.

  23. Louis says

    Keep in mind the 50K is max mintage if demand is there. They have not struck 50K of them already.

  24. VA Bob says

    OT – Just heard on the radio yesterday that the NFL raked in over $4 billion (with a “B”) last year. Needless to say I will not be buying the NFL football coin when/if it is available. I can’t believe those cheap bastards haven’t ponied up to pay for the Football Hall of Fame museum that can only add to their bottom line, even indirectly. I liked the BHOF coins, but had reservations as well, later learning their huge take that year. Well the NFL coin could be shaped like a football, covered with glitter, and play a musical tune, I’m not buying. Not going to subsidize more multi-million dollar franchises and their wealthy players ego.

  25. VA Bob says

    LOL – Mint delays in shipping ASE’s… I call BS. The Mint was hoping the problems in Greece would have raised the price of silver, and they waited it out. Bet they are disappointed.

  26. says

    An old favorite just keeps on ticking — last week’s sales results for AtB circulating coin sets:
    N89 — 2010 ATB QTR CIRC SET — 37,390 — +220
    N91 — 2011 ATB QTR CIRC SET — 34,077 — +121
    N97 — 2013 ATB QTR CIRC SET — 26,258 — +236
    N99 — 2014 ATB QTR CIRC SET — 20,148 — +36

  27. says

    Harry B.,
    Sales of the ’09 St. Gauden’s UHR began on January 22, 2009. The initial price was $1,189 and there were about 28,000 sold the first day. The sales period lasted until December 21, 2009.
    I would be shocked if the new ’15 Gold Liberty sold even one third this amount on the opening day. I would be further shocked if this coin sold out of the maximum 50,000 mintage. You are very optimistic that it will do well. I don’t share that optimism, and believe that this product will fall far short of its maximum mintage.

  28. GoldFishin says

    @VA Bob- I am so ticked at retailers like APME$ for taking one little manufactured news story and gouging silver premiums I could spit silver bullets(pun intended). They won’t get one red cent out of me until they put them back to their normal already too high premiums.
    Back before silver took off and broke out above $20 in 2010 it was common to find ASE’s and Maple Leafs for between $1.49 and $1.99 premium for only purchasing 20-25 coins. They have yet to return to those low premiums even though spot silver has been below $20 for almost a year now…instead they are raising premiums to what they were when spot silver was well over $30.

  29. Erik H says

    Thanks Dave, looks like there’s still some Truman C & C sets to be had. Does anybody think that this years Buffalo will see a higher mintage than 2013 ????

  30. cagcrisp says

    @Harry B, Wow.. “I “feel” a sell out quickly”. Not only that but Double Wow with “with good profits for flippers who receive their coins early”…

    Bold Assertive Predictions… I like that… Don’t agree with it, but by golly you put it out there…

    I sure don’t see Many trying to flip a $1,500.00 coin that has Mintage of 50,000…

  31. says

    Thanks for some perspective. The morning London gold fix for Jan 22, 2009 was $847.75, which means the ’09 UHR initially sold (quite successfully) for a $341.24 premium over spot. And I suspect most buyers from back in January 2009 are still pleased with their purchases.

  32. VA Bob says

    GoldFishin – I’ve noticed that as well. While the big PM dealers have always done this (raise the premiums on falling spot prices) this year has been really bad. It’s like they are guaranteed their profit. Have you looked at their buy prices? Modern 90% silver dollar commens for $12.92. I guess sellers (to them) don’t get to set their profits. Personally, since the Mint sets a small percentage on them, they should agree to a small mark up too. Better yet, the Mint should sell bullion directly and cut these guys out. It’s the government picking and choosing who will make a boat load of money and who won’t. I can see a bulk discount, but make it available to everyone.

  33. cagcrisp says

    In my above post about Flippers. I think the Big Boys will mostly take a wait and watch approach on this and the only Flippers will be small boys…

    Assuming an issue price of $1,540.00 +$4.95 shipping = $1,544.95
    Assuming $11 shipping/insurance, 10% bay fees and 3% pal fees.

    SO…you have to Buy a coin for $1,544.95 and SELL it for $1,800.00 to just make $10.05…

    You have to Find someone willing to pay $1,800.00 for a coin that they can readily purchased Directly from the Mint for $1,544.95????

    I know it can happen but I sure wouldn’t want to make a living trying to do it…

  34. Erik H says

    From mintnewsblog.com Aug 9, 2013:

    “There have been reports that sales of the United States Mint’s 2013 Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo are off to a strong start. Within the first 30 minutes of availability, orders were placed for 12,630 units”.

    Total sales for the RP Buffalo on day one – 21,009 units.

    If sales aren’t as strong as the RP Buffalo this years HR coin will be a flippers nightmare and sell for bullion. But as I said in an earlier post this could be the next “Stella”, what was once hated is now desired. Hopefully the mint didn’t strike all 50K at one time. If they let the market place determine how many will naturally sell by Dec 31, that will help long term appreciation of the HR coin. Also, it seems that the mint will not produce slow selling collector coins in the month of December, so if there is an abrupt sell out in late Nov. or early Dec. that will be it. Look what happen to last years Proof Platinum Eagles sales.

  35. says

    What if Rhett Jeppson is somehow a huge fan of marketing pop-ups? What if the Mint, as a test, is planning on a mint-to-order production run for the 2015 HR Liberty gold coin based solely on the first day’s orders? ONE AND DONE! YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE!

    There’s always that chance.

  36. says

    DR,
    Count me as one of the pleased purchasers that got in at the initial $1,189 purchase price, as this represented the lowest price this offering would sell for from the Mint. Soon after sales commenced, gold was on the rise as were the price levels for the coin.

    Back then, the price of gold was falling, just as the 2009 UHR was introduced, not unlike what is happening now in anticipation of the 2015 HR gold coin. Buying the UHR gold coin during the first week of availability back in 2009 turned out to be buying at the low point. Could history repeat itself (or, at least, rhyme) with the 2015 HR gold coin?

  38. cagcrisp says

    @KCSO, 14 left and Tomorrow afternoon will see the LOWEST price that the Mint ever Sold the Gold JFK for.
    SO… IF there are any left tomorrow, you can say you were the luckiest of 73,500…

    To maximize coin sale profits on ebay requires some research. I am in my 5th year selling on ebay and spent the first six months fine-tuning and lowering my packaging costs while paying very close attention to buyers habits on Friday & Saturday nights. That’s a free tip BTW.

    If you want to mix your items in where the expensive coins are time your auction closings with GSCs nights. That is a good way to increase your price per item if your coin is rare or a higher grade.

    As for the 2015 ASE I have stacked all the silver I can stand for the moment and will not purchase anymore from the mint.

    What else? I enjoy reading all the experienced collector’s comments. Much of it is beyond my experience but I have gained insight from many of you. I still buy “S” mint rolls of ATB quarters to spend all over Northern California and Nevada just to push them into circulation.

    Cheers from Jayjaspersgarage

  40. Ikaika says

    @ Louis, KCSO, FM

    Thank you for the input on the HR WTE. Prices have been dropping. I might stay on the side lines for a little longer. Got the proof and business already. May pass on the 5oz. I like the coin, but the premium and the monopoly is not favorable for me to continue with some of them.

  41. VA Bob says

    Cag – shhhh! Don’t give the TPG’s an idea for a new label. “Lowest Mint price paid”.

  42. Ikaika says

    @ cagcrisp

    And many of us paid $1240. At least it wasn’t 4-5K for that 70 graded. Some lost 3K or more on those already.

  43. KCSO says

    Damn blog ate my post.

    Ikaika – I don’t know. The last ’14 1 oz HR I let go went for north of $570, the next will start with a 6.

    Will the ’15s be the Powerplays that the ’14s have been.., ? Buy what you like…, though mintage on the 5s were reduced by half. See following link…

    jayjaspersgarage , I have noticed the same thing about selling on ebay. Though I’m not a regular seller, I do believe sells are better Thursday through Saturday. And, I would never recommend ending an auction on Sunday, but if I’m looking for a good deal, I would chose Sunday to look for one.

  46. Dustyroads says

    KCSO, $570. is a pretty good deal for the `14 UHR WTE. I say that because I have that one and and plan on holding it. I wish I knew if they can maintain the high asking prices. But I’ll probably be in as you are to deal in the 6’s.

  47. mattarch says

    One more item on selling through eBay is to take good photos of the coins. Buyers are willing to pay more when they are sure of the product. Coin photography is difficult but there are m any online articles, even some at eBay.

  48. The Real "Cool" Brad says

    I’m confused. Is there a reason why everyone on this blog uses “sale” in the place of “sell”? Is this some inside joke that became standard? It’s not possible that this many people don’t know how to use the verb to sell…

    @capcrisp, you own any kennedy half gold? you are doing the counting on a daily basis. you think there will be price appreciation after it’s been sold out at mint?

  51. Jeff says

    Bottom of the barrel who wants one over priced scratched, fingered, dirty gold bullion coin. NOT ME

  52. jj says

    like others have said, i’ve also now decided against buying this HR gold. i was excited at first, but all the points made concerning it the last few days have changed my mind. for now, i’d much rather pick up a good UNC $20 gold liberty or st. gaudens…maybe even a silver kilo kook or koala? those things look pretty cool.

  53. cagcrisp says

    @Joseph, Yes I own the JFK Gold. Paid $1,240.00 for some. I think there will be price appreciation at Some Point. Not necessary once they go off sale. At SOME point the Mint will quit making Kennedy halves. At That point, I think you will see price appreciation. There have been over 4 billion Kennedy halves produced. It’s the only .75 Gold piece ever minted and it is the Highest costing/Lowest denomination coin ever Minted. 73,500 Golds or close to that with over 4 billion silver or clad haves minted. I like that vs. the HR Liberty which has no history behind it…

  54. Mr. Kairu says

    Hi Ikaika, I have two of the PR70 HR WTEs on ebay at $185 right now. with just under 24 hours left. Couple of watchers but no bidders yet. I lost money on two others that I sold. The 15s do not seem as popular as the first year, partly due to what has been said before I assume that many do not like dealing with Govmint. Sad for me as I missed the PR70s for 14 and got the 15s but no one wants them as much. I too may have to just stick with the bullion and proof version for my album.

    You are confused — they’re actually using “sell” and “sells” when “sale” and “sales” would normally be used. They don’t seem to be embarrassed about it.

  56. Ikaika says

    @ Mr. Kairu

    Another problem is too many “flavors”. The premium plus the number of coins for the series adds up $$$$$. I do not even think about the gold version. Some on the bay are selling for about 2K with no takers. Going forward, I might also stick with the 1 oz bullion and proof. Still pondering on the HR.

  57. thePhelps says

    Thats interesting Zaz… maybe they took all the feedback we provided last year and will include the $2 bill this year.

  58. A different Jeff says

    Could this be the ‘mysterious’ RP Ike that had the description modified to remove the ‘only found in the C&C set’ clause?

  59. says

    DR,
    I completely agree with you in regard to the incorrect use of the word “sell(s)” when it should actually be “sale(s)”. It seems that this has been more of a recent issue on this Blog site. I’m at a loss to figure out why this has now become more commonplace.

  60. says

    There will be a reverse proof versions of all four Presidential $1 coins this year, so it makes sense there might also be a reverse proof version of the Native American $1 coin, too. This Coin & Currency set should be a lot less expensive than any of the Presidential Coin & Chronicles sets, unless the included currency note has a picture of Ulysses or Benjamin on it.

  61. Larry says

    Next year there will only be a Coin and Chronicles set with an RP coin of Reagan. Nixon and Ford get nothing. Sure seems political to me. I can see why they wouldn’t do Nixon, but Ford wasn’t a bad guy considering what he followed.
    I wonder if anything will come after the presidential dollars or that ‘s it folks. Maybe vice-presidential dollars? Just kidding.

  62. Ends in Error says

    I want reverse proof, enhanced Unc, 24 kt Gold, and Kennedy Looking at ….. ,
    versions of the Lincoln Cent.

    It would only be fair, after all.

  63. says

    I’m hoping there is some validity in regard to the Mint issuing a Native American RP dollar this year. This is the one non-precious metal coin that I would actually buy in a RP version.

  64. says

    Can’t the Mint just do a stand alone Native American $1 RP packaged in Mylar without throwing in a meaningless dollar bill and calling it a coin and currency set? These “sets” take up too much storage space.

  65. Joe #2 says

    Looks like the Jackie k. Proofs are available now from the u s mint for immediate shipping. I guess a lot of folks probably cancelled because the upcoming price drop.

  66. thePhelps says

    John…it is a simple way for the mint to generate cash… hmmm another double… I actually have no problem with them selling these sets – they are generally inexpensive and yet profitable for the mint.

  67. Tinto says

    And RP Sac? Say it’s so, Mint. Gotta get it … to keep my RP collection up to date … hopefully I can get the Ike C&C first …

  68. cagcrisp says

    You will get one level Gold price drop today and IF things stay in the same range as they Currently are, you will get another one level Gold price drop next Wednesday just before Launch of the Liberty HR. Assuming Gold stays Between $1,050.00 and $1,099.99 you will pay $1,490.00 for the HR…

    I am going to Try and see how fast the JFK Gold sells out today after the price drop. Currently 11 available (2 coins just Couldn’t wait)…

  69. MarkInFlorida says

    GoldFishin, I think the Mint raised their premiums on silver eagles to wholesalers, from something like $1.50 to $2.25 a few years back. Then the wholesaler added like 25 cents to the dealer. Maybe someone else knows the exact prices. A dealer I used charged me like 25 cents over his cost from the wholesaler (per eagle) when I got a monster box. But you are right, the premiums are ridiculous, and there is little available.

  70. cagcrisp says

    For those that Haven’t watched a price change, they don’t just flip a switch and all Gold is re-priced. They do Each one Individually…

    IF it was ME, I would adjust the JFK last…That’s just me…

  71. maddogdday says

    @DCDave- Off topic

    Besides the other good Ebay auction suggestions you have received from bloggers on this board, I would suggest you upload nice quality close-up photos of your Hawaiian Commem, obverse and reverse, in addition to the usual full front and reverse photos of the slab. As we know, sometimes there are slight over or under grades from the TPG and it’s helpful to have close-ups for the potential buyers to confirm the grade for themselves.

    I have been looking for a nice unc Hawaiian for a while. May I ask you what TPG and the numerical grade the one is you are interested in selling ?

  72. Erik H says

    They are moving slowly when it come to decreasing the price. The old prices are still showing.

    I hope we get a reverse proof Sac. with the same 50k mintage and 5 per household limit.

  73. Leo S. says

    Checked the Mint site and there is still no price reduction. I thought that they did this around 12 noon on Wed.???

  74. says

    Earlier in the year there had been speculation that the Mint would issue a 2015 RP set. Well, aside from the 5 ATB quarters, most of the other 2015 coinage has been or will be issued in RP. There’s only one thing: collectors will have to put these sets together themselves, such as Tinto (12:16 p.m. comment) is doing.

  75. cagcrisp says

    One of the Bigger online players just increase his Truman Coin & Currency set from $194.50 to $224.50…

    This is OGP…

  76. maddogdday says

    @DCDave-

    Thank you very much and congrats on such a nice coin. Would you mind giving me a heads up when you put this up for auction? I would love to have a crack at it.

  77. JBK says

    Just to clarify a bit of confusion in another post, the Presidential RP are in a Coin & Chronicles set, and the possible Sac/NA RP $ would likely be in a Coin & Currency set. Two separate series.

  78. Zaz says

    Since it’s a $1 coin in the coin & currency set, they could trot out an old favorite, a RP or EU ASE but dated 2015. The frontrunner guess is still a special NA coin though.

  79. Louis says

    C&C sounds intriguing.

    @Ikaika- Re; the WTE’s- I was referring to the raw 1 oz coins, but the raw 5 oz will be available in early Sept. from Aussie dealers. I have not been given any prices but despite the mintage reduction I am still expecting it to be in the range of $400, which is a lot more reasonable than the graded ones. Those big slabs are a pain to store also. That’s why I only get some ATB’s that way, usually the ones that are special in some way.

  80. Zaz says

    @Louis:

    Can you ask your Mint source about the mystery coin & currency set to be released next month? If they’re willing to spill the beans? Lol.

    The three choices for the $1 coin are the NA dollar, one or more Presidential dollar, possibly in RP, or maybe a special ASE?

  81. Sith says

    Effective October 1, 2010, the United States Mint has increased the premium charged to their network of authorized purchasers for American Silver Eagles from $1.50 to $2.00 per coin.

    The 2016 ATBs look more like coins honoring American’s than showing the actual parks

  82. cagcrisp says

    @Louis, “Still no price reduction, WTF?”

    Maybe they’re lazy. Anticipating another price reduction next week. Just wait and do them both at the same time…

  83. Louis says

    Zaz- The Mint will not reveal anything before it’s public to anyone outside the Mint.

  84. thePhelps says

    cag…perhaps they took your suggestion earlier…and are dragging their feet for the last Kennedy out the door at the old price.

  85. merryxmasmrscrooge says

    I first thought the headline read: “2015 American Silver Eagle Walker Bullions Will Return in 2016”.

    meaning no change in design for 50th Ann.

  86. merryxmasmrscrooge says

    walker w ’15 digits in date almost looks like coin thatnever was, a 1915 pattern for the 1916.
