Updated Final Sales Total for San Francisco Silver Eagle Set

The United States Mint has released an updated final sales total for the 2012 San Francisco Silver Eagle Set. This represented one of the Mint’s most anticipated offerings of the year, which included proof and reverse proof Silver Eagles struck at the San Francisco Mint.

Product sales began on June 7, 2012 and orders were only accepted until July 5, 2012. Rather than establish a maximum product limit, the Mint indicated that the sets would be produced to meet the total demand for orders placed during the four week window.  The sets were priced at $149.95 each.

Throughout the ordering period, sales figures were posted on a “sales odometer” placed on the product page. Following the official close of sales, the last number indicated on the odometer was 251,302 sets.

The new updated final sales total for the 2012 San Francisco Silver Eagle Set is 224,981 sets.

The US Mint indicates that this represents the “final unaudited sales.” While it may have removed a large number of order cancellations and/or returns from the previous total, it still does not represent the final audited mintage. However, I would not expect a significant change from the unaudited number to the final audited number.

When I last revisited this offering, prices on eBay for raw sets were around $180 to $190, NGC Proof-70 sets were selling for around $300 to $325, and PCGS Proof-70 sets were selling for around $425 to $450. A survey of recent concluded auctions shows prices for raw sets now mostly falling into the $170 to $180 range. Prices for NGC Proof-70 Sets have been around $270 to $290. The PCGS Proof-70 Sets, which show up with much less frequency, have sold for a wide range of prices between $450 to $600.

It will be interesting to see if the updated final sales figure contributes to a bump up in secondary market prices. The new numbers now make the 2012-S Reverse Proof Silver Eagle the fourth lowest mintage issue of the series (excluding varieties). The lowest mintage is still held by the 1995-W Proof at 30,125, followed by the 2011-S Uncirculated and 2011-P Reverse Proof issues from the 25th Anniversary Set at 100,000 each.

Previously, the fourth lowest mintage was held by the 2006-P Reverse Proof coin from the 20th Anniversary Set at 248,875. This issue now moves into fifth place.

    Thanks Michael for the information. Very useful indeed. Not only it will be interesting to see the prices for these sets, but for the 20th Anniversary too. They already seem to be coming down in the secondary market.

  2. simon says

    The anniversary sets are awesome – I have all three. The rarity is a great additional bonus. The question is if the Mint will find a reason to make a “D” mint mark set in the next few years, preferably with a reverse proof or high relief ASE. They could have done a Denver centennial set (first coin produced) issue in ’06 or a sesquicentennial set in ’12, for the year founded. Anyone know of any other commemoration?

  3. ClevelandRocks says

    This set looks nice (reverse and obverse) and low mintage should give added value. I think a rise in secondary market pricing will show this.

  4. JM says

    Only 5 weeks after the mint had told us they would have the mintage update available. Not bad for them. A drop of over 26000 sets should help the price for sure!

  5. Teach says

    Michael,

    I think you meant to say 2012 – S Reverse Proof, not 2011 -S……..

    “The new numbers now make the 2011-S Reverse Proof Silver Eagle the fourth lowest mintage issue of the series”

  6. vaughnster says

    Couldn’t the Mint sell the cancelled sets as a Last Chance opportunity or were they really “minted to order” and very few are left over? It would be a shame if 26,000 sets would be melted instead of sold. I’m also interested if this news has any bearing on secondary prices. I’ve been holding on to many of my sets waiting for the final numbers to come out. Wouldn’t mind flipping a few sets if premiums increase to put towards the palladium coin next year??

  7. Governor says

    If the Mint starts doing Last Chance sales, who would buy the first time around? About 10 years ago on some proofs, they did a Last Chance. It was a fiasco. Talk about angry collectors and a zapped secondary market!

  8. vaughnster says

    This is a little different than proof sets, which have no stated maximum mintage or one month ordering period. I’m just wondering if the Mint would melt 26,000 sets instead of selling them as long as they don’t exceed the 251,302 number sold at the close of the sales period. I’m glad they aren’t but I was just curious as what they will do with any leftover sets.

  9. Shutter says

    Previously, the fourth lowest mintage was held by the 2006-P Reverse Proof coin from the 20th Anniversary Set at 248,875. This issue now moves into fifth place.

    That’s true. However, the 2006 RP were graded 70 at a much lower rate. Something like 12% for PCGS and 20% for NGC. The 2012 RP managed about around 32% and 50% respectively. The 2011 set was lousy with 70 grades. So I think, in the long run, the 2006 RP will remain the most valuable of the 3.

  10. Don says

    Governor: I agree with you. It would definitely be a bad idea to sell any of the unsold 2012 SF proof sets as Last Chance sales. If any of these sets remain in stock they should, by all means, be melted down. The Mint had a more than adequate ordering window for these sets. All of the individuals that ordered these sets did so with the understanding that there would be a definite cut-off date with no further sales. There was no need for a waiting list, as was the case with the quick sellout of the 2011 anniversary silver eagle set.

  11. Dan in Fla says

    I too am holding onto my boxed sets until the dust settles. Shoot I still have my five 2011 sets in the box they came in. On the 2012 SF RP sets maybe it would be better to send them to PCGS for grading. But I don’t believe in grading.

  12. Don says

    With the unaudited final mintage of these sets in the 225,000 range this represents an approximate 26,000 shortfall from the 251,000 final odometer reading that the Mint posted when the sales period closed. Obviously there had to be a whole lot of order cancellations for the mintage figure to drop so much. I guess there’s quite a few collectors out there who are having regrets over pulling the trigger on the “Cancel” option, as the mintage will now be lower than the 2006 Silver eagle anniversary set (250,000). It will be interesting to see if there is an upward swing in the Ebay prices for the sets in the original government packaging.

  13. Samuel says

    for the 2006 set, basically it is $100 a coin. if same assumption applies, the 2012 SF set should be around $200 a box.

  14. john says

    Would it make since to buy some NCG-70 sets then send them to PCGS for “crossover” submission? Looks like you could make a few bucks if you were a flipper.

  15. EvilFlipper says

    Not much in flipping these. 224,000 way too high a mintage in these uncertain economic times. Rarity is gOing to be a bit more of a key factor but ultimately it will be rarity + popularity. First spouses will be rare but unpopular. These silver eagle sets will be popular but not rare. Gold american eagle proofs of this year will offer the most upside as well as the gold burnished eagle. 2009 UHR I feel has gone through its major post market moves and will now move up slowly over time pending some massive economic calamity. I’m still waiting on the palladium. Anyone have any ideas on standing liberty anniversary issues coming up in 2016? A 4 coin type I and type II proof and burnished set makes my mouth water!! Or maybe an ultra high relief version? And an ultra high relief Peace in 2021? The possibilities…..

  16. Louis says

    Shutter- Michael was referring to raw coins, and you are talking about 70’s.

    But you also did not provide any % for the 2011 coins and imply a relatively small number got 70’s. So how can we deduce from your comment that 2006 70’s are rarer in the absence of any hard data? My PCGS membership has lapsed so I can’t check the pop reports.

  17. Louis says

    John- You can not cross at 70. They don’t do that. But you could break it out of the holder and submt raw but you could well end up with a 69 at PCGS.

  18. says

    @Samual…I don’t think your assumption of $100 a coin for the 2006 or 2012 set is very sound.
    I just saw a raw/ogp 2006 set sell for $325…ebay item 251192691260. Basically the RP is $200, the regular proof $75 and the unc/burnished $50

    For the 2012 issue price of $150…they are not 2 $75 coins…the RP would be at least $90 and the reg. proof $60…or $95/55.

    I’m nor sure where prices are headed for the 2012 set, but I would think prices should go up from where they are now.
    The RP is now the second lowest RP mintage and the only one with the “S” mint mark.
    The mintage for the regular proof is still under 280,000 even when you add in the ones from the MAH coins…so, the 2012-S reg proof will end up with lowest mintage of any reg. proof besides the 1995-W.

    As far as graded RP’s go, I agree that the 2006 70’s are the rarest and should be worth the most. However, I don’t see why a 69 2006 should sell for $190-200 while the 2012 69 PR are currently around $115.

  19. says

    correction…”As far as graded RP’s go, I agree that the 2006 70′s are the rarest and should be worth the most. However, I don’t see why a 69 2006 should sell for $190-200 while the 2012 69 PR are currently around $115″
    Last part I meant to say…while the 2012 69 RP’s are currently around $115

  20. stephen m. says

    Demand, i think , determines the price of any ASE anniversary sets and the proof ASE coins. The 1995W is a good example. In pf 69 it’s $3200 and the pf 70 is $14,000 give or take a couple of hundred on either coin. I would also agree the low mintage also has a part in the prices. All the ASE are stars in my book.

  21. Shutter says

    But you also did not provide any % for the 2011 coins and imply a relatively small number got 70′s.
    You misunderstood what I said. I use the word lousy as in infested with lice. IOW plentiful.
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/lousy
    d : amply supplied : replete (lousy with money)
    If someone didn’t know the percentages for 2011 RP, it’s 65% for NGC and around 50% for PCGS.

    Michael was referring to raw coins
    I did not contradict or disagree with Michael said. However, rarity and perceived condition rarity do have an impact on value. In the long run, I believe, that 2006 RP will be more valuable even raw, because there will always be a chance that it will grade at 70 and have a decent increase in value.

  22. JM says

    I for one think the a 2012 69 Reverse Proof should be a $150 coin by itself. If I hadn’t already done so, I would be selling the 06 pf 69 for $180 and buying the 2012 2 coin set in 69 for $160. You get a lower minted coin and double the silver. Just one anonymous persons advice on a coin blog which may admittedly only be worth what you paid for it, or less.

  23. Shutter says

    I don’t see why a 69 2006 should sell for $190-200 while the 2012 69 PR are currently around $115

    The prices will equalize over time, however, 2006 will remain more desirable and will probably remain somewhat more valuable. It will still be the 1st RP and part of the 1st anniversary set. Also, it can be “converted” to raw and sent in for grading, to see if it becomes a 70.

  24. simon says

    This is why I enjoy and keep my coins in OGP. It’s a mint original issue and I have the sales receipt with the COA in the box. No cracking, submitting, recracking, and resubmitting, see-sawing back-and-forth between PCGS and NGC and MS/PR69 and MS/PR70 a la musical chair numismatix. The pivot is of course the huge amount of hard earned money spent on TPG antics, which could be spent on, well – more coins ! Makes me really wonder 🙂

  25. Louis says

    Shutter- I was not suggesting you were contradicting Michael. I was saying you are talking about different things. It’s one thing to say this coin has the lowest mintage in raw form, and another to say this other coin is the rarest in top grade of all the coins submitted to the two services, which unlike the raw number, will continue to change over time. There are esp. lots of 2011 and 2012 sets that may be submitted later and 2006’s too. I was suggesting you may both be right because you were addressing different points. But I am still not convinced the 2006 70’s are rarer.

    So, to me the raw coin rarity, as described by Michael, is a solid number that will only change if the Mint issues another coin with a lower number, but the graded numbers need to be taken with a grain of salt.

    And the “first” factor is not a solid predicter in my view either. Look at the 1986 bullion and proof coins. They are worth the same as the others.

    Bottom line to me is the 2011 sets will always be the most desirable of the three because the overall mintage is much lower than the other two at least for now, and as Steve said it has the only so-far RP with an “S”.

  26. CB says

    Worth noting that the 2006-P reverse proof is a one-year type coin, as the only one with the Type 1 reverse. The later two have the reverse introduced in 2008.

  27. Louis says

    I am not sure if that matters much for value, but it’s an interesting point. I think the sleeper is the 2008 with reverse of 2007, which is the second rarest overall in the series, and the rarest mint state coin.

  28. Hidalgo says

    I think the revised mintage is still too high to make a significant impact on secondary market prices/values for the two coin set. The key reverse proof coin would be the 2011 ASE one. So any ASE with a mintage higher than that one would always be viewed as a runner up.

    Regardless of value, I am happy to own a set of these beautiful coins. They were worth the $150 I paid for them. Any appreciation they may accrue over the years (if any) would be icing on the cake. What a sweet thing that would be!

  29. ClevelandRocks says

    Well under the ’06. I think they will sell for well over $200/set raw within 6 months. I’m keeping mine, but really makes me happy when my stuff is worth a lot more than I paid for it.

    Do we know for sure another reverse proof will be made again anytime soon?

  30. G says

    I think this is a good number and I doubt anybody predicted that many cancellations. There’s some UHR potential to jump up in about a year or so here. The old “well, it’s been out for a while but hasn’t jumped way up in value so it must not be a great deal… wait it’s a great deal” scenario. This is a beautiful set and it sure feels like it will be worth double the price listed in a year, with 70 staying around 500 in PCGS, 400 in NGC. Thanks for the updated figures, Michael.

  31. rpw says

    Can anyone explain to me why PF 70 PCGS graded coins have a higher secondary market value than NGC graded coins?

  32. simon says

    The reason is ambiguous at best. The claim is that PCGS is “stricter” than NGC no doubt making the impression that they (PCGS) are redoubtable in the business. In reality, PCGS is highly suspect for their grading consistency, and the handling of customers coins, processing coins at their discretion (cleaning, etching, etc.of coins if they mishandle them, for e.g. leave fingerprints). Their customer service is also generally either aloof or arrogant.

    So it’s all a case of numismatricks !

  33. Shutter says

    But I am still not convinced the 2006 70′s are rarer.

    There were nearly 51K of 2006 RP submitted to NGC. Of that number roughly 40K were submitted sight unseen, and the remainder could have been cherrypicked. It is a big enough sample to assume that if the entire mintage was graded, only 10-12% would receive 70. That would work out to around 50K. For the 2011 set, around 29K were graded, mostly sight unseen. Again, a big enough sample. Using percentages of grades received, we should expect 65K to be 70. Applying the same to 2012 set, the expected number of 70 could be as high as 112K. One caveat: 2012 coins could be examined before the submission, so there is a chance that the actual population in top grade would be lower. Still it seems to me that 2006 RP would still be more valuable.

    And the “first” factor is not a solid predicter in my view either. Look at the 1986 bullion and proof coins. They are worth the same as the others.
    None of the factors are solid predictors. With 1986 proof mintage was close 1.5M. Bullion over 5M. Even a totally unique coin with low mintage like 2008 with reverse of 2007 (as you pointed out) is a complete sleeper. It commands a decent premium, but nothing like the 1995W proof, which has half the population but sells for several times more money.

  34. Louis says

    The issue with the 2008/reverse of 2007 is not just a matter of mintage. It is whether a collector considers it necessary to a complete set. A strong argument can be made that the 1995-W is needed for a complete set. The argument that the error coin is an absolute must for a complete set is not quite as compelling, but future collectors may look at this differently, which is why I plan to hold on to my two examples until they pry them from my hands.

    With the SF set, I would advise patience. The 2006 sets did not go up overnight, and neither will these, but remember that millions of people collect ASE’s and they all need these anniv. coins so several years from now they should be worth more, but how much is hard to say. Don’t take out a second mortgage to get more!

  35. Ralph says

    I just saw a set that sold for $214.95 on ebay. The price is on it’s way up and it’s probably due to the new low mintage number. I will bet they will increase fast. I have raised my price.

  36. ClevelandRocks says

    Sorry to burst Shutter’s and anyone with a bunch of ’06 RPs, but I actually bought quite a few ’06 for my family (not to flip) and 100% of them look like PF70s with my loupe! Remember, the vast majority of ’06 RPs are NOT submitted to TPGs. The ’06s are still worth a lot more than I paid for them, but at the end of the day, the ’12 SF sets have lower mintages and ultimately will be worth more.

  37. stephen m. says

    While i do so love the ASE’s any values today will change when and if the series dies. Every one here is a lover of them also and i thank you for your interesting knowledge and opinions of a great coin.

  38. Shutter says

    Sorry to burst Shutter’s and anyone with a bunch of ’06 RPs, but I actually bought quite a few ’06 for my family (not to flip) and 100% of them look like PF70s with my loupe!
    If the 2006 RP worthy of 70 grade were so common, don’t you think that some enterprising dealer would be buying them up and submitting for grading? Not a huge profit, but steady.

    Remember, the vast majority of ’06 RPs are NOT submitted to TPGs.
    Between the two of them NGC and PCGS graded close to 30% of all 2006 RP. I think that that’s a meaningful enough sample to make some educated assumptions about the issue. You may have received 10 sets with all 70 coins in them, but that just means that someone else got a shipment of duds. Whatever the case may be, I have serious doubts that the unsubmitted coins are magically of better quality than submitted.

  39. Shutter says

    The argument that the error coin is an absolute must for a complete set is not quite as compelling, but future collectors may look at this differently
    I already look at it differently.

    Incidentally, 2008 with 2007 reverse is not an error coin. It’s a die variety. That makes it desirable to more collectors.

  40. Louis says

    Fine, but if that were really the case, the coin would be worth more. It has done nothing since the initial fast increase after it was discovered.

  41. Gary says

    Overall..this is a beautiful set with a decent low mintage..should be a winner in the long run!

  42. Robertson says

    Personally, I don’t understand why reverse proofs are so popular. Besides being not very aesthetically pleasing to the eye, they also have an artificial look to them. Perhaps this is due to how the typical modern-day proof, with frosted devices and a mirror-like field, came to be about. As I recall, the Mint began to intentionally create frosted devices on their proof sets sometime in the late 1970’s. If memory serves, this was in direct response to the growing collector appeal to a scarce number of older proofs that exhibited this visual effect due to having been struck from new dies. I can understand the attraction to these coins – they were 1) scarce, 2) naturally occurring, and 3) quite attractive.

    So, what was once a delightful and natural occurrence from striking proof coins was turned into a fabricated step by the Mint in the production of proof coinage, only to have this already fictional nonsense flipped on its head in 2006 with the advent of “reverse” proofs. What’s next… colorized proofs? Give me a break.

  43. hi ho silver says

    I have to agree with CR on this one. PCGS and NGC are just insurances to sell coins online,I too have some 06,11,12 sets put away in OGP.

  44. Jeff in TX. says

    What if the total for this set gets even lower on the final total mintage. I never thought it would have gone this low. One night I was watching the coin vault on TV and they stated they had bought a pallet from the mint. No special pricing involved. This was some time in October. They where only offering it in OGP. I thought the Mint sold them returns and damaged sets.

  45. Gary says

    @Dave…great post? no idea what that even means but good try..its nice to see our special members trying to post and share…
    Anyway…i dont think anyone can go wrong with 2006, 2011 and the 2012 Sets..Graded or OGP…i believe all 3 will carry some nice premiums over the years!

  46. ELLIOT G says

    it looks like many folks are buying coins for the bump up and are disappointed when the prices slid down. what ever happened to the collector who buy cause they want to.

  47. Samuel says

    lets give it some time. i am new, anyone remembers when the 06 set price started to take off?

    another thing, the people who owns 06 set, should have bought the SF set, but the people who bought the SF set, does not necessarily own the 06 set. this will make the 06 set more desirable.

    and, even the 2011 25th set, after it was sold out, the price still stayed around $450 for quite some time. so, have some patience.

  48. hi ho silver says

    I sold 1 set at the Baltimore coin show in the spring of 07 for $300 sight unseen,but there was only 1 vender willing to buy it. He was a smart one LOL

  49. hi ho silver says

    Also took a 2006 PCGS MS69 unc Gold and silver set…was offered a little over spot @ $900. That one came home with me.

  50. Brad says

    Samuel,

    The 2006 20th Anniversary Silver Eagle set sold out at the Mint in mid-November 2006, and by May of 2007 sealed cases of 10 sets briefly touched $9,000 before starting to slide. Loose sets briefly brought $600 each at that same time. Both of those peak prices were reached following a couple months of steady increases. It didn’t take very long for prices to fall quite a bit, though. For several years afterward, the loose sets could be had for under $300 each, and sealed cases of 10 were under $4,000. They finally rebounded again somewhat in late 2011 and early 2012, undoubtedly the result of re-kindled interest by the 2011 25th Anniversary set.

    All of these silver sets are nice, but truthfully I still like the 2006 20th Anniversary Gold Eagle set. It’s a VERY attractive set (that black wooden box with gold embossing is STRIKING), and with only 10,000 made (with many submitted for grading) it’s a pretty tough one to find in OGP. You really need to see one in person to truly appreciate it’s beauty. Despite that, the set doesn’t get the collector respect that it deserves, with much of it’s value today due to the dramatic increase in the gold spot price from the time it was sold. I’ve read other comments here that have mentioned what a bargain the 2006 Reverse Proof 1 oz. Gold Eagle is, and it’s true.

  51. Samuel says

    Brad, thanks for the summary. If I have known this, I would have taken the 25th set more seriously.

  52. Silver Sam says

    Michael….thanks for your time on all the updates and work you put into this blog!!!!…very appreciated!

  53. KEITHSTER says

    12 20 12 last day if your Myan and first day for the last spouse of the year or the four medal set if your the mint!!! Good luck in luck “13”

  54. Blair J. Tobler says

    Just saw the Frances Cleveland 2nd term and the 4-pc FS medal set are on the schedule for the 20th

  55. Brad says

    Attitude is uncalled for, I’m simply recalling peak prices paid on eBay auctions before the sets started to slide. I don’t personally know anyone who paid those price levels, but it did happen very briefly.

  56. hi ho silver says

    Maybe you should try a grey sheet instead of ebay. Refer to my last post and try to understand.

  57. old folkie says

    Michael, have I missed something? The new 2013 quarters usually are on sale by mid-January. Have they even picked the final designs yet?

  58. Dan in AZ says

    I am thankful that the US Mint proceeded with a limited time offering of this set and hope that they continue to do so in the future. I realize this may not be popular with some folks who would rather have a limit of 5 per person and who can line up their friends and family to purchase 25 or more sets and then sell them to the folks who were otherwise unable to purchase the sets in the first 6-8 hours of them being on sale.

    The set and the earlier RP sets have a good chance to appreciate in value more especially if the US fails to get it’s economic house in order.

  59. VA Bob says

    A lot of talk about prices in the comments. Something else to consider is that a dollar isn’t worth what it was, even as close as 2006.

    One could go crazy analyzing all the variables, especially with collectibles, like coins. Collect what you like an hope you stay above inflation when it comes time to sell. If the economy ever moves away from coins and bills (and I believe it will one day, not necessarily in my life time). Either one or two things will happen, coin collecting will become a hobby of the rich, or none but a few will care and the hobby will tank because of that lack of interest ala beanie babies.

  60. Louis says

    Brad,
    My recollection is similar to yours though I did not realize sealed sets of 10 2006 sets got that high. I sold 3 for around $350 to my local dealer when they were retailing for something like $450. I needed the money and it was a good profit.
    There is nothing wrong with collecting for both fun and profit, folks! Without the motivation of profit, the hobby would be a lot smaller and American coins would not be worth so much or be in such demand. People in other countries are not quite as profit-oriented in general, but hey we are Americans and we like coming out ahead!
    I really would like one of those 3 coin 2006 gold sets but it’s too rich for me. I saw one on sale recently that did not last long for under $6K, which is a really good deal given spot prices and the RP being worth $3K alone. There will be coins in the future that will be even better I think.

  61. Brad says

    Louis,

    Well, it was VERY brief for those price levels. There was only one auction that reached $9,000 for a sealed case of 10 sets. When that happened, you could almost hear the brakes squeal as the immediate reversal began. I was watching very closely, since I had bought three cases at the $4,000-$4,200 level in March and was trying to decide when to unload. I ended up selling two of them in mid-June 2007 for $7,400 each, and finally sold the third one in April 2012 for $5,700. In hindsight I should have sold all three of them back in ’07, but I didn’t realize prices would dip as low as they did before they would recover somewhat. Oh well. I still did pretty well.

    I think we all should know by now how this works. Prices always skyrocket out of the gate and then cool off! Just look at the 2011 25th Anniversary Sets..i sold my 5 set case for $5700 and now your looking at maybe roughly $3800 for the same thing…

    Samuel,

    Yes, I did buy some from the Mint. I bought the limit of ten sets for my household early on, and once it became apparent the Mint had no intention of lifting the household limit I reimbursed my dad to buy ten sets under his name and billing address shortly before the sellout. However, after prices started to rise I decided to buy more on the secondary market, since I had faith that I was getting them early enough that I could make some pretty good money on them. That particular gamble I won.

    If you wish hard enough, Brad may fly one of his jets to your State on Christmas and check out your small collection Samuel. Lol

    I watched a sealed box of ten 06 anniversary sets sell recently on e-bay for $5150.00. I was raising 2 kids and a wife when the 06 anni. came out. I was into the ASE since 2001 and ordered 2 sets(1 for each kid). Overtime came from work and i later ordered 3 more sets. Money was tight in those days but that $500 was well spent. I still have the 5 sets in the 2 mint sealed boxes and consider them to be a very special page in our lives. The sets haven’t anywhere in price to go except up.

    The point here is spot gold was around $650 in the spring of 07. The price of the 06 silver set never reached $900 at that time, sealed graded or loose. Your pretty much right on the money with your ebay quote by todays standerds stephen.

    ho hi silver, these sets may catch todays 06 set prices in the future. They really are nice and with the s mintmark are different for sure and a must have for any ASE collector.

    You may be right Stephen, and this will give a boost to the 2011 anniversery set.Don’t forget about the low mintage proof coin in the 2012 set either. The 06 set had 1 each over minted unc & proof along with the 1st RP…….I think spot silver will direct 06 set in the long run.

    Looks like there hasn’t really been a bump as people are still dumping positions on ebay. Anyone looking for price appreciation has to wait for the guy selling 20 sets at auction with no reserve to be done selling. Hopefully the S Proof will sell out shortly and we’ll know how good that coin really is.
