American Eagles Sales Suspended
By Numismatic News September 19, 2007
Sales of some 2007 gold American Eagles were suspended by
the U.S. Mint late Thursday, Sept. 13, due to the rising price
of gold bullion on international markets.
Uncirculated American Eagles with the "W" mintmark
went off sale with the expectation they would be repriced
and returned to the market on or after Sept. 27, according
to the U.S. Mint.
The $749.95 price for the one-ounce coin was barely above
the highs reached by gold bullion this week.
Also suspended were bulk sales of four-coin sets of proof
2007 gold American Eagles. These sell at a discount to bulk
dealers. Sales of individual gold American Eagle proof sets
to collectors continue at the $1,499.95 price.
The Mint will honor all orders for which confirmations have
been received by bulk dealers.
