    Hi
    Is there a shortage of how many 2020W Silver American Eagles produced? I ordered one on July 8th and it came today. It was a beautiful coin and went on line to order panther one and it said unavailable. Could they of sold out so fast?

    If you listen to Mike "The Mouth" Mezack on TV, he states that the West Point Mint has suspended operations because of COVID-19. ~ Chris

    The last email I received from the mint said they were holding up production on numismatic items and focusing on business strikes while we deal we Covid. I would imagine there are shortages of 2020 numismatic coins at present.

    First day sales were reported at 98,682 pieces.
    They were available for about 3 hours that day.

    I don't know if they'll make more or not. I would think that they will try and make more but who really knows what will happen to this years coinage.

    @Preif18 According to the mint website, those coins are on Backorder. You can still order them, but you'll have to wait awhile for delivery. It says they are making more.

    I withdrew all my subscriptions. I've decided that the mint is putting out so much junk that I will no longer try to keep up. Good luck to all who are still trying to keep up.

    We are talking about the W Uncirculated.

    I haven't been on here for several years but i had to sign up to vent at the mint. i know they have a monopoly here and can do what ever they want but still it burns me up. i have a subscription for this coin and they processed it, sent label to FEDEX, and charged my credit card for the coins shipped on the 9th. FEDEX tracking shows estimated delivery pending, (still says that today). called the mint yesterday and got the response "that i should wait another week to see if it will show up" i asked is this because of the covid-19 crap making slow to ship product, she said sure so i hung up. i looked at the next order that i had for the quarters placed on the 10th and it showed from pending just before i called the mint to arrived at fed ex location on the 14th. well now i started to get a little upset so i called again and insisted to speak to a manager and she told me after searching for a little while that the coins did not leave the fulfillment center and were lost (i find that hard to believe, 5 ounces of silver lost for over a week) so she goes and tells me to file the non receipt form so they can refund my money or as she put it investigate the situation. (i want the coins not a refund) and that i would have to reorder so like an idiot i took her advice, filled out the form and emailed it in, then i go to the web sight and discover that the coin was no longer available now i am pissed because with my luck it wont come back on sale. (hopefully it will though) and if i do decide to continue with my eagle collection i will have to get one from the after market at an unreasonable mark up. any ways i just wanted to know if any one here had a similar experience with this coin sale or is this a unique situation just for me? i have had no problems with the mint over the last fifteen years i guess i was due. i have read a lot of people have had bad experience with the mint now i feel you. any thank you for the venting.

    update to previous post above, first I apologize if I am high jacking this post and bringing it back from the dead, but because I vented my frustration at the mint I also have to praise the mint for coming through with finding my misplaced package on Saturday 7/18/20 and continuing with its journey to my address.I just received it today and all is well with the world again for me anyways.

    Mine are stuck in LA-LA land. My credit card that I had been using for years expired.
    I called and they said to update the card but weren't sure how to release it for shipping.
