25th Anniversary Reverse Proof VS the true S mintmark

1 post in this topic

Both are the the 2nd Rarest but which one is the most collected


I have been doing my homework since the making of the 25th Silver eagle Set. Every month I would chart out the number of perfect 70's available especially on ebay, because that is where the most of these coins are sold.

Everything you may know about these 2 coins are completely backwards.

Mintage in NGC perfect 70 are as follows

Reverse Eagle is 18,668

S mintmark Eagle 20,004


I have been trying to figure which one is more collected

Not including the complete sets ,just individual coins


On ebay the Population are as follows

Reverse proofs are 19

S mintmark is 11


Every month the S mintmark eagles are getting scarcer.

Since being released in October and a sell out in 5 hours,

10 months have seriously scattered these coins to the wind.

Only 4000 collectors can truely have 5 perfect S eagles since NGC has the 20,000 perfect mintage. I will update the auction populations on the 1st of every month. In the next 6 months the 2 eagles should have only 4-6 individuals for sale. The S eagles are cheaper and more sought out than the Reverse Proofs.Time will tell soon if I am right that the S eagles will be worth less than the Reverse eagles
