2008-W Uncirculated & Proof Platinum Eagle Sales Figures

http://mintnewsblog.blogspot.com/2008/12/2008-platinum-eagle-mintages.html

The 1oz Plat proof finished at 2,432. Some 400 more than the 2004 Platinum Eagle (2,017 pieces).

For those of us who paid $2300 for the 1oz earlier in the year, if the mintage would have beem the same or less, that would have been nice!

Please note, these figure do NOT include the 1 oz eagles in the 4 coin sets!

Mintage numbers I've seen for the 2008 4 pc proof plats is just a few units over 2600. So add that to the 2432 and you have approx 5,000 one ounce proofs--- which is a terribly small number.

The bullion version of the 08 plats did however sell in much, much larger numbers--- I saw the mintage for the bullion version somewhere recently but cannot remember where.

I picked up two of the 4 pc 08 proof sets. They are the prize of my collection!

Mqracing.... Nice buy on the '08 proof sets. I bought two also, and then followed up and and bought a set of PCGS PR70 DCAM's on Ebay. The set goes for less than they ask for an '04 1 ounce 70 by itself. It just seemed like a common sense buy. The 08's are rising rapidly and should really skyrocket if platinum starts moving up
I also bought five each of all the fractionals and they are close fo doubling. I may just sell some of those and keep the PCGS 70's, although it may be crazy to sell any of them. Good luck
