It was reported yesterday that the 2012 US 1oz Silver Eagle has now been officially sold out by the US Mint – with a total 33,742,500 coins struck.
In the 27 years that the coin has been struck, this is the 3rd largest mintage confirmed by The US Mint for the 1oz Silver Eagle. Proving once again that the popularity of silver – and specifically silver coins – remains extremely high across the world as we reach the end of the year.
Furthermore, with the sell-out of the 1oz Gold Eagle that we previous reported in November, it is apparent that Eagle coins in general remain the flavour of the month – both bullion and proof issues.
And with the 2013 Eagles to be launched in January, expectation is already high that another very successful year for the United States Eagle coinage will occur.
