Released earlier today, December 12, the set has a total of eight silver coins. Seven of them are struck in 90% silver while the other one is minted in 99.9% silver.

Most U.S. collectors will be familiar with the coins since they were previously issued within other United States Mint products. Placed within improved packaging are the following eight silver coins:

  • One 2013-W Proof American Silver Eagle Coin
  • Five 2013-S America the Beautiful Silver Quarters with designs commemorating White Mountain National Forest (New Hampshire), Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial (Ohio), Great Basin National Park (Nevada), Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine (Maryland), and Mount Rushmore National Memorial in (South Dakota)
  • One 2013- S Kennedy silver half-dollar
  • One 2013-S Roosevelt silver dime

The combined weight of the silver coins totals 2.34 troy ounces, which means the set’s current melt value is about $45.68 (2.34 x the latest spot price of silver at 19.54 an ounce).

The American Silver Eagle was struck at the U.S. Mint facility in West Point in 99.9% pure silver. It had been available by itself until selling out in November and it is also inside the 2013 Congratulations Set that sells for $54.95. The smaller 90% silver coins were struck at the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco. They are the same silver coins as in the 2013 Silver Proof Set which sells for $53.95. Performing the math, the Congratulations Set and Silver Proof Set priced together is $31 less than the Limited Edition Silver Proof Set.

Buyers do find value in the packaging of the 2013 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set, based on past sales. This is the second annually issued set. The product was introduced last year and sold out at 50,169 units. The Mint’s website was very busy when this year’s set launched at noon ET. For a time, the Mint was using its waiting room feature to route potential buyers and stop the website from crashing.

Orders for the set may be placed online at www.usmint.gov/catalog. The US Mint indicates there are no household order limits. The product limit is 50,000 units.
