    Just got an email from the mint that they will be processing my order in about 2 weeks for these coins. Here is the price:

    NOTE: Due to the increase in the cost of silver, the 2008 American
    Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin is priced at $25.95.

    Only 4 bucks more than last year. Not to bad I guess considering the price of silver now.

    Hm...I wonder would it be a smart thing to do to order the 2008 Silver quarters now or to wait until the whole set is availbe with everything else?

    I was just getting on to say that I got that email as well. The only problem is I do not have a subscription to the unc. only the proof. Has this happened before?

    Sorry. Title should of been 2008 American Eagle Silver uncirculated Dollar. It is the 1 ounce bullion coin that the mint sells directly which has the W mint mark. Those are only availabe as a single item. Not in sets. Price this year $25.95.

    I've seen them screw up the quanity before but not the item. Well first for everything. Mine did say 2008 American Eagle Silver Uncirculated. Quantity only said 2 though (that's how many I get of the Proofs) when I have 15 on the subscription. Probably see a correction email out in a few days.

    I know, but I was saying that if they raised the price of that because of the price of silver, would it be wise to get the state quarter silver set now at its current price, vs when they come out with the complete set in (i think) august and a possible higher price?

    The 5 quarters melt for almost 18 bucks now and the sale price at the mint is 25.95. Guess if you really wanted the silver proof quarters now would be a good time before the jack the price up.

    am eagle vs: statehood quarter

    one ounce of 2008 american eagle (w) uncirculated silver dollar cost $25.95. while the 2008 five pieces statehood silver quarter proof contained 0.904 ounce cost also $25.95. which one is better?. you have one ounce vs: 0.904 ounce but then you get uncirculated vs: proof. well. i think it is fair to say equal for both. the only way to look will be the mintage of each other. and again. it seems both can have over 1,000,000 pc. in the end. i will pass it.
