Thread: TYPE2 AGEs

  1. #1

    Default TYPE2 AGEs

    I'm behind the curve on this, but I just now saw the new reverse for the AGEs, and I must say, I'm not a fan. Not impressed.

    they are ok. the mint just released the Proof versions today. the 4 coin set, (1 ozt, 1/2 ozt, 1/4 ozt and 1/10 ozt.) sold out first at $5055. the same crap with their so called "revamped and enhanced" url. BULLS HIT! I had the 4 coins set in my bag and all ready to confirm the sale... all was going great and then BAM. sold out yet again.
    I was able to get a one ounce AGE, and a 1/10th ounce AGE. My son was able to grab another 1 ozt, 1/2 ozt and 1/10 ozt for me too shipping to another house.

    So, altogether I got 2 x full Type 2 Proof AGE's, 1 x Type 2 Proof half AGE and 2 x Type 2 Proof 1/10th AGE's. Lets see what kind of premiums these bring.

    my last post was shelved quickly. I thought I would re-vitalize this thread again to maybe get a little feedback on this yesterdays usmint release of the Proof Gold AGE's. Anyone? Pros or cons?

    They sure need to revamp their website for taking orders.

    Glad that you at least gobbled up a few Max.

    Have you any info on the mintage numbers for the different sizes? As you know I'm a fan of the 1/2 oz'ers. your own Health Care System... grow your own and eat well

    Hey Max,

    I have to agree with digbird here; the U.S. Mint has lost tons of customers due to their seeming inability to process orders in a fair and orderly fashion. I mean, we can put men on the moon and split atoms, but they can't find some computer geek (and I mean that in the nicest way) who can fix their online issues? Like beating the "bots", and such? Or making it so that the true collectors instead of the greedy dealers can actually get ahold of some of these low mintage issues? I have pretty much stopped buying from the Mint because of things like these and in the rare occasion that I do want something from their latest issues, I just buy it at a shop or a show.

    As for design, I believe that the AGE type 2 design is much better than the ASE type 2 design (with the clipped wings), but is still lacking overall. The eagle looks like it was poked in the eye with a sharp stick and is desperate need of an eye doctor. I will say this, though. Proof AGE's are generally very attractive coins and someone will want them. I myself don't generally go for them mostly because of mintage figures. Believe it or not, the bullion versions have actually gained numismatic status for several different dates- mostly due to low mintages for those particular years. Also mostly relegated to the 1/4 ounce and half ounce fractionals. I think you've done well to get what you did since it's nearly impossible to buy from the Mint when they have something low mintage and many collectors want them (like their latest Morgan and Peace dollar fiasco). In that case, while everyone was clamoring for what I consider restrikes, I went out and bought another genuine, Brilliant Uncirculated Carson City Morgan Silver Dollar, dated 1882 in the original GSA holder with box and papers, and it's probably an MS-63 or 64 (at best). Of course, grading standards being what they are today, it could be an MS-70! Lol

    The following is from Coin World regarding mintages:

    The 2021-W American Eagle Tenth-Ounce Gold Two-Coin Deluxe Edition set to go on sale July 29 from the U.S. Mint will be restricted to a release of just 5,000 sets.

    The set will include the year’s two versions of the American Eagle tenth-ounce gold $5 coin: one example featuring the Reverse of 1986 and one with the Reverse of 2021 design.

    The single Proof 2021-W American Eagle, Reverse of 2021 gold $50 coin (mintage 5,625, order limit one) and the gold four-coin Proof set (product limit 10,250, limit one) will go on sale July 8. Other single Proof gold coins are the half-ounce coin (mintage 2,000, limit one); quarter-ounce coin (3,375, limit one); and tenth-ounce coin (10,000, limit one).

    The Uncirculated 2021-W American Eagle, Reverse of 2021 $50 coin goes on sale Oct. 7 with a maximum mintage of 9,100 coins and orders limited to one coin per household.

    Overall, I think the U.S. Mint HAS to be able to find some sculptors and/or designers who can come up with better revamped designs. I mean I still like the Augustus St. Gaudens obverse, but if they were to change that, they had better come up with something classic looking, but in an updated way. On top of all that I've mentioned, their "new security anti-counterfeiting measures" are extremely lame. I mean, leaving off one of the reeds on the edge? That just falls way short of what anyone expected of them regarding that. I had heard that they were doing a lot of talking with the RCM (since they seem to know what they're doing) and thought that the Mint would follow suit, but nope. A couple very minor design changes to Liberty and a new eagle. Meh. I think that many stackers have been picking up the Royal Mint's gold Britannia's instead. They also have a beautiful design AND have real anti-counterfeiting prevention on their coins. I'm considering picking up some myself, TBH.

    Bronkster, I agree with digbird. Thank you all for your input and information. This year seems to be a low mintage year from what I can observe. Of what I got I am glad mostly about the half ounce coin. I'll send one of the full ounce and both tenth ounces to ngc for grading. fingers crossed for proof 70 results.

    Max: I'd send one of the 1/2 oz'ers as well. Worth the gamble. your own Health Care System... grow your own and eat well

    Max, I'm quite partial to the 1/2 oz size also. Those and the 1/4 oz'ers seems to have the best price appreciation- much better than the full ounce and 1/10 oz counterparts.

    As always, it's my pleasure if and when I'm able to offer either information and/or opinion that can help another stacker (or collector) in their endeavors.

    Btw, the latest figures I have for the Type 1 bullion version AGE's (as of 6/23/21) are as follows (and keep in mind that they've been pinned at these numbers for a little while now, yet haven't released the Type 2 numbers:

    1 oz- 430,500 (seems to be pretty standard numbers and might become collectible due to being the last of it's "type" for that weight- probably not though

    1/2 oz- 31,000 (seems to be a small mintage and is already commanding a premium)

    1/4 oz- 56,000 (also seems to be a low(er) mintage date and will probably increase within a few years possibly, if not sooner)

    1/10 oz- 150,000 (also relatively high numbers as you well know)

    1 oz Type 1 ASE- 13,106,500 ( basically 9-10 million more than the lowest mintage- the 1996 which does command a premium for sure, so no big deal here)

    1 oz Gold Buffalo 173,000

    Platinum Amer. Eagle 1 oz 75,000
