Following the complete sell-out of the 2012 US Gold Proof Eagle issues, the United States Mint has today announced the release of the Gold Proof Eagle coins for this year.
Despite the success of the 2012 issues, the United States Mint has taken the surprising decision to reduce the edition limits on all the major annual releases. For example, just 10,000 Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Eagles will be issued in 2013 – 2,000 less than the sell out for last year.
The combination of sell-out success in 2012 and the reduced edition limits will surely only increase the levels of demand further
Indeed, whilst the beautiful design and exceptional provenance attract many collectors to the United States Gold Eagles, it increasingly the low edition limits and the continued sell-outs that catches the eye of collectors throughout the world. It is for the these reasons that we recommend the Gold Proof Eagles to our clients, which can be viewed here.
