Yesterday, the individual product option for the one-tenth ounce 2011 Proof Gold Eagle sold out at the US Mint.
Five different product options for the 2011 Proof Gold Eagle had originally went on sale at the US Mint on April 20, 2011. With the latest sell out, all of the individual options have sold out, leaving only the four coin set option available for sale.
The individual one ounce coins had sold out on October 14, 2011 after receiving orders for the entire product limit of 30,000. This was followed by the sell out of the individual one-quarter ounce coins on December 28, 2011 and one-half ounce coins on February 27, 2012.
The half, quarter, and tenth ounce coins all sold out with sales levels below the established maximum product limit.

|One Half Ounce||15,000||8,066|
|One Quarter Ounce||16,000||10,381|
|On Tenth Ounce||30,000||23,926|
|Four Coin Set||40,000||17,991|
Looking ahead, the US Mint will begin sales of the 2012 Proof Gold Eagles on April 19, 2012. Once again, there will be individual one ounce, half ounce, quarter ounce, and tenth ounce coins, as well as a four coin set available. The Mint has reduced the product limits for several options, which basically bring them into line with the actual sales achieved for the 2011 coins.
