2012 W Burnished Silver Eagle to become key date issue
Updated mintage figures have been announced for the 2012 W burnished silver eagle coin and the news is great for collectors who own them! This issue has been sold out in both variations in which it was offered; the individual coin and the 6 coin annual dollar set.
As of May 5th, the final production number for the 2012 W burnished silver eagle is only 230,872 coins. This sets a record for the 4th lowest minted silver eagle in the entire series across all die formats.
The burnished coin was first introduced into the marketplace back in 2006 as a part of the 20th anniversary 3 coin set. They produced them again in 2007 and 2008 as a solo offer and collectors grew fond of the low mintage numbers and the special collector finish. The Mint stopped offering the burnished silver eagle in 2009 and 2010, and resumed production again in 2011.
We assume the mintage numbers are so low simply because many collectors thought this coin was no longer available. Between the bullion, proof and burnished issues, the burnished coins carry the lowest mintage figures enticing knowing collectors to tuck them away.
The Mint’s announcement of a stop sell for the 2012 issue solidifies this coin in a very coveted category. We have seen the price on this issue jump from the ground floor offering of $100, to some companies are over $170 to own this coin. Unfortunately for those collectors that wait, they will most likely have to pay more in the future.
