Did you get US Mint Silver Eagle proofs today?


Recommended Posts

I know most people on this forum are probably in UK.  I have annual enrollment for proof American silver eagles.  I just get 1 or 2 and don't sell them.  Today, I also ordered the Congratulations Set from the US Mint.  I haven't purchased the Congrats set in previous years but there seemed to be a lot of hype around them this year, so bought a couple when they came up for sale today.  Anyone else fall for the hype?  I thought this year might end up being a key date.

Update:  I see as of the time of this post, the Congrats Set is sold out and the proof ASEs are on backorder.

I bought 3 congrats sets from the uk, I cancelled my enrolment also as the demand for new proof ase over here have declined. last year with import fees, shipping and grading I basically got one free eagle for a lot of work so didn’t bother getting any normal ones.

The type 2 design (and insane premiums) really killed my motivation to acquire new eagles of any kind.  Additionally, I feel the U.S. mint needs to make some major improvements as an organization in order to convince me, as a customer, to give them any more business in the future.

I have greatly curtailed my purchases of ASEs over the last two years because of the premiums. Before that, it was my preferred coin.  Now, I have bought more Britannias and a few Maples but mostly generic rounds and bars.  I don't mind the type 2 design.  In fact, I wish they'd change the design every year.
