American Eagle gold Proofs and other U.S. Mint News

2017-Proof-American-Eagle-gold-set-APMEX

On March 2, the Mint made the 2017 American Eagle gold Proof coins available for sale on its website. The annual issues, all struck at West Point and carrying the W mintmark, consist of the 1-ounce (17EB, $1,560), 1/2-ounce (17EC, $795), 1/4-ounce (17EE, $410), and 1/10-ounce (17EF, $175) Proof coins, as well as the Proof Set containing all four sizes (17EF, $2,890).

A host of precious-metal coins will be released next week. On Tuesday, March 7, the Mint will offer the year’s first 5-ounce America the Beautiful Uncirculated silver coin (17AJ, $149.95). The design, which celebrates the subtle, difficult-to-capture Effigy Mounds National Monument, is the 36th in the ATB series. A collection of all 36 coins to date contains 180 ounces—nearly 12.5 pounds—of .999 fine silver.

On Thursday, March 9, the Boys Town Centennial commemorative coins will be released. Introductory pricing (which lasts for one month) has been established for the clad and silver coins. After 30 days, each item’s price goes up by $5. Prices include a $35 surcharge on the sale of each gold $5 coin, $10 on each silver $1, and $5 on each clad half dollar, with the proceeds going to Boys Town to help it carry out its mission. Introductory prices are as follows:

Silver $1, Proof (17CC) $47.95
Silver $1, Uncirculated (17CD) $46.95
Clad half dollar, Proof (17CE) $21.95
Clad Half dollar, Uncirculated (17CF) $20.95

Prices for the gold $5 coins (Proof, 17CA; Uncirculated, 17CB) and the three-coin Proof set (17CG), which contains one gold $5 Proof, have not yet been established. However, if the average price of gold remains between $1,200 and $1,249.99, the Mint’s pricing grid will set the introductory prices for the Proof coin at $400.45, the Uncirculated coin at $395.45, and the three-coin set at $461.45.

The last two products to be released in March are the American Eagle 2017 one-ounce silver Proof coin (17EA, $53.95), which will be released March 23; and the Mint’s annual Proof Set (17RG), released March 29. Last year, the Proof Set was priced at $31.95. This year, the set will be priced at $26.95, since it will contain three fewer dollar coins (the Presidential $1 coin program having concluded last year).

U.S. Mint updates its online catalog for April

In prior years, the Mint established its product calendar at the beginning of the year. This year, the Mint’s m.o. is very different: it has announced its tentative quarterly plans for 2017 and 2018, but is setting its specific product schedule just one month at a time. The April calendar is now out, and includes the following products (pricing will be established closer to the sale dates):

April 3 2017 ATB quarters, Frederick Douglass National Historic Site rolls and bags (17ABD, -E, and -F; 17ARD, -E, and -F)
April 4 2017 Congratulations Set (17RF)
April 6 2017 American Liberty 225th Anniversary Gold Coin (17XA)
April 10 2017 ATB quarters, Uncirculated Set (17AA)
April 24 2017 ATB quarters, Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, three-coin set (17AE)

Planned for May and June are the American Buffalo gold Proof coin; the annual Silver Proof Set and Uncirculated Set; the American Eagle gold and silver Uncirculated coins; and the American Liberty silver medal.

    Just a couple years ago one was able to download and print the entire years product schedule from the
    Mint early in the year. There were a few undetermined items on it but it was good enough for planning your years purchases and budget. Now the Mint just plays games with it. So far I have been boycotting them.

  2. DBR says

    I purchase a lot of coins from the U.S. Mint, and always will- especially the staple products and what I deem to be “must haves” for my collection. But I need some variety and I look for it in the commemoratives. Because I’m not enthused about so many U.S. commemoratives, I’ve started to purchase coins from foreign mints too: Australia, United Kingdom, México and Austria. Many readers here attest to their own purchases from the Perth and Canadian mints.

    Even if I think some recent commemoratives haven’t been appealing, I still liked the subject matter but just not the end design…and I don’t follow through on a purchase.

    So buy what you like, as is so often repeated here! Good and true advice.

    Cag – you recall over a year ago when I posted the Commemorative ranking list, and you made some predictions on new lows and recall which new lows you predicted?

    Care to see how you did? As I recall, you forecasted pretty much on the money.

    With the release of Boys Town, it start all over again.., I’d ask if you’d care to make any further predictions though it’s becoming rather trivial at this point further.., until 2019 anyway…

  7. cagcrisp says

    @KCSO, I’ve got at Least a couple of hours run

    …SO… I will post something when I get back…

  8. Keep Calm & Stack On says

    It’s interesting how 33, 35, & 36 ended up. #1 should have really been in the mid-3,000’s range per true demand.

    The never mentioned Twain Gold’s – a superior Comm design in my opinion, stealthily now commands the #4 spot at the heels of the 5-Star General’s which experienced a ridiculously high spike in early 2014 and has subsequently returned back to earth. And the Twain Proof now commands the lowest Comm Proof of all time – love, love that steamboat design – so classic in a modern age. I personally think the Twain’s will be a sought after Commemorative if there should be a market for them going forward.

  9. Keep Calm & Stack On says

    What I predict for 2017 – a repeat of 2016.

    The past two-year trend will play out again and the expected laggers will lag again. We’re all ready seeing that with LC which is slowly approaching 20 SLV – UNC – 1996-D Paralympics Silver Dollar at 14,497.

    Wash, rinse, and repeat…

    I don’t buy for one minute that Boy Town $5 will experience stronger sales for a lack of sister Commemorative gold offering this year.

    Anyone with $380+ in their pocket has plenty of other attractive offerings and smart buy alternatives for the year to make. Besides, with the surprise announcement that we may see gold fractional Buffaloes.., all bets are off. Plus a potential proof Pd with a stellar design in the neighborhood.

    Leaning forward – 2017 forecast: more congregation among the Comms in their respective ranges shown above, and they’ll be a two new lows, possible three, for the year.

    2018 – WWI Comm likely to perform better than Twain, pending design. Breast cancer awareness I think will do quite well, perhaps comparable to the BHoF Golds and Silvers, at least I hope so.

    2019 – it’s Game On.

    Disclaimer – no pumping at all. I’m sinking every penny I have into emerging markets, health care, and value financial stocks and not chasing new lows, the aforementioned is merely offered as I find it entertaining and I do collect some of this stuff, call it my fun time.

    Now, let’s see how it plays out for ’17…

  10. Keep Calm & Stack On says

    Cag – have fun, if you find your way to Effigy.., bring back some Animal Crackers and enjoy some marshmallows on sticks.., oops, my bad, those are the trees…..

    “In prior years, the Mint established its product calendar at the beginning of the year. This year, the Mint’s m.o. is very different: it has announced its tentative quarterly plans for 2017 and 2018, but is setting its specific product schedule just one month at a time. ”

    The Mint has Finally done something Resembling a business decision by Not listing details of the yearly offerings but allowing buyers to see only a little over a month at a time schedule.

    The Mint really messed up by an email concerning the 2017 Fractional Buffaloes and articles being written about the 2017 Palladium coin.

    The Mint should have kept both quite so as to help the 2017 HR…

  12. Barry says

    OT- In 1997 one hr at the min. wage ( pre tax) would buy an ounce of silver. Today it would take over 2 hrs. at 7.25 / hr for an ounce of silver. In regards to gold, two weeks pay could have bought an ounce of gold and now it is over four weeks. So QE has really devalued the currency and people are feeling the effect of it. I don’t believe raising the min wage is good and I think people don’t realize that the cause of the problem is creation of excess fiat currency. In regards to coin collecting I think this is also having a impact on the number of collectors. As the cost of living rises disposable income becomes less and less for all wage earners.

  13. cagcrisp says

    Recent History the Mint has led with the strongest commemorative offering in January. The Lions club Silver is a Much superior design to the Boys Town Silver design.

    After having Really dismal sales early, the uncirculated Silver is not just dropping off the cliff on sales. Still behind the same time period of the dismal selling NPS Silver.

    …SO…I see the Silver BT’s being even lower than NPS.

    Even though the design of the $5 Gold Boys Town is worse than the NPS Gold, I don’t think it will be the Low Mintage Wonder.

    There is just So many people that buy a Gold commemorative no matter what, and as far as a commemorative goes, the BT has No competition this year unlike the competition the NPS Gold had.

    …SO…A week from now you should have a good gauge as to whether the NPS uncirculated Gold will remain the Low Mintage Wonder OR whether the Boy’s Town uncirculated Gold will reign superior (until Another dismal design in unleashed)…

  14. cagcrisp says

    @Barry, “In regards to coin collecting I think this is also having a impact on the number of collectors. As the cost of living rises disposable income becomes less and less for all wage earners.”

    A Very astute observation. Just wait 20 years and see what happens to Coin Collectors when the entitlement programs blow UP the deficit (you haven’t seen nothing yet).

    (Giving tax cuts now, only to have your children and grandchildren pay for your tax cut. Shame. Shame.)…

  15. earthling says

    This morning I contemplate the dismal condition of the US Mint and all I can say is G** D*** the Pusher Man. I’m talking about the Pusher Man that pushes Money as our God. Specifically I’m talking about the activity that led to that collapse in the economy in 2008. That was the time things got really bad for everyone, everywhere. How crazy was it to flip Housing back and forth like Cards in some silly Monopoly Board Game? It only collapsed the economy and countless lives.

    We’re still in it but the unemployed still suffer especially bad. Numismatics suffers also. Every year only produces more low mintage marks and the business of chasing the numbers seems to be about the only business still going on.

    Of course these uninspired Coins are not helping matters at all. Thank God for Dan Carr and the Moonlight Mint . I’ve ordered around 8 times since Thanksgiving. Ordered maybe 2 times from the US Mint in that same time.

    Any chance we can get Dan Carr into Jepsons old job? The man would be a natural for the position.

  16. Barry says

    @cag- I believe there is a domestic spending problem and not a revenue one. Spending should be adjusted to revenue and not the other way around imo.

  17. So Krates says

    “Just wait 20 years and see what happens to Coin Collectors when the entitlement programs blow UP the deficit ”

    At least those are designed to help people.

    What about “defense” spending? Haven’t you heard we need more nukes? Pouring $1,650,000,000 every single day into the Killing Business ain’t gonna help the deficit any. It is unnecessary to spend more on arms than the next seven countries combined. Considering the level of hunger among our population and the poor condition of the infrastructure at home, it’s obscene.

    Plain & simple…. The old school ( the real coin collectors ) are dying off or have died off. These were the real folks before the grading companies where everybody went according to the grey sheet for prices.
    Today, It’s a new generation. Everything is fancy. What was, was. Reminds me of growing up in south Brooklyn NY. Haven’t lived there in about 47 years or so, And you wish you could go back home again, And everything would be the same. Well, It’s true what they say. ” You can never go back home again.” JMHO for what it’s worth.

    I’m pretty much on board with what you say, although others stay the course.
    proof sets, historic designs and since we can buy, denomination pure Au and Ag.
    The commem’s and stacking coins, along with label are have some fans.
    I’ll stick with metals, and some pre33’s.

    I was looking to dump a handful of baby gold coins to streamline my stack a bit, so I scheduled a meeting with a prospective buyer yesterday. Even though I had sent pics of the 1/20th oz. gold before our meeting, he was shocked to see how tiny they were in person. I tried to explain that size doesn’t matter(lol) but its’s the weight that’s most important. He apologized and left without buying.

  28. So Krates says

    @ Tinto – Yeah it’s a good song – a real song, written by John Sebastian of Lovin’ Spoonful, not some Hollywood jingle factory. Holds up well and is a great window into the feel of the time and place.

    @ joe#2 – My roots grow only a few blocks NW of there. I left in ’72 and can relate. While you are right on about not being able to ever go back home again, it seems the rate of change is much faster in cities than in small rural towns …some of which seem almost stuck in time.

  32. data dave says

    @cagcrisp – “this is precisely the time to be buying” – I agree. That is one reason I enjoy having my collection of bullion 5 oz pucks. It forces me to buy on a regular basis whether I think it is a good idea or not. I have no idea of where the market is headed but it is harder to buy when it is dropping than when it is rising. Having a regular purchase plan helps counter that feeling.

    “America’s currency is a statement about who we are as a nation. Our modern money honors our history and celebrates our values. Building on tremendous feedback from Americans across our country about the theme of democracy, the Treasury Department will create new design concepts for the $20, $10, and $5 dollar notes.”

    The front of the new $20 will feature the portrait of Harriet Tubman, whose life was dedicated to fighting for liberty. The reverse of the new $20 will depict the White House and an image of President Andrew Jackson.

    The new $10 will celebrate the history of the women’s suffrage movement, and feature images of Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul, alongside the Treasury building. The front of the new $10 will retain the portrait of Alexander Hamilton.

    The new $5 will honor historic events that occurred at the Lincoln Memorial in service of our democracy, and will feature Martin Luther King, Jr., Marian Anderson, and Eleanor Roosevelt. The front of the new $5 will retain the portrait of President Lincoln.

    Today is Launch Day for the Effigy (animal cracker) 5 oz. “P” puck

    I’m looking for a Decrease in sales of about 7% from the recent past for the 5 oz. “P” pucks

    Anything close to a Decrease of 10% would be a Major concern IF I was a “P” puck person and I was concerned about the viability of the series going forward.

    For me, the series is already doomed. It’s just a matter of when and not if. Today could answer the ‘when’ question…
