2007-W & 2008-W Burnished Silver Eagle Mintage Figures


The ongoing recap of the most recently published sales figures for some the Mint's 2007 and 2008 precious metals products continues.

Today we take a look at the 2007-W & 2008-W Burnished Silver Eagles. These are collectible versions of the bullion coins offered directly by the Mint. The coins are struck on burnished blanks and carry the "W" mint mark. Figures included below come from the last published sales figures from Numismaster.

The 2007-W Burnished Silver Eagles sold out at the Mint near the end of February. However, the coins are still for sale as part of the 2007 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set. The product page on the US Mint's website can be found here. Sales of the coin were relatively high compared to last year, when the smaller mintage caught many by surprise.

Single Coin 563,711
2007 Unc Dollar Coin Set 83,763

The 2008-W Burnished Silver Eagles went on sale at the US Mint in mid-March. Sales have been relatively strong despite a sharp drop in the price of silver. Contributing factors may include coins ordered in lieu of the regular bullion 2008 Silver Eagles which have been in short supply. Also coins may have been purchased in larger numbers in order to search for the 2008-W Silver Eagle Reverse of 2007 Variety. In July, the US Mint will release the 2008 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Set, which should also include the 2008-W Unc Silver Eagle.

For comparison purposes mintage figures for the 2006-W Burnished Silver Eagles are included below. The coin was offered as a single option and was also included in two different 20th Anniversary Sets. Contributing factors to the lower mintage were the short sales period and an unexpected sell out of the single coin option before year end.
