UPDATE: The US Mint has started taking orders, and will do so for one month (June 7 through July 5). Mintage will depend on how many are ordered. For me, this is problematic. If I don’t know the mintage beforehand, I can’t gauge the value. At $149, the 2012 American Eagle San Francisco Two-Coin Silver Proof Set is too risky and presents little opportunity to make a quick buck.
According to the US Mint website:
“The United States Mint at San Francisco plays an important role in our nation’s coinage. Although it does not currently produce circulating coins, it is the exclusive manufacturer of regular proof and silver proof coin sets that set the standard for numismatic excellence with their brilliant artistry, fine craftsmanship and enduring quality.”
