V75 Silver Eagle

Coins | user_79911

The V75 Silver Eagle came out November 5, 2020. The U.S. Mint said that it would be a proof coin. I had just gotten into coin collecting when this coin was coming out. The mintage of the coin was supposed to be 75,000. The lowest mintage for a silver eagle EVER! There was A LOT of hype for this coin. But not only this coin. There was also a twin. A V75 GOLD EAGLE! Even better, this gold coin would have a mintage of only 1,945! The lowest mintage coin ever made by the U.S. mint! On Ebay, there were a lot of pre-sales. The value on these coins were in the thousands! But how much would they cost from the U.S. Mint? Well the V75 SIlver Eagle would be only $83! The V75 Gold Eagle would cost $2,600! So there was a lot of cash to be made. But let's talk about the coin more. The V75 coins were made as an anniversary for world war 2. It had been 75 years since world war 2, so that is the V75. The V75 on the coin is in the lower right hand side of the coin. The V75 mark itself is called a privy mark. The V75 coins were only minted in the Westpoint mint. Fun fact, in 2019-2020 the Westpoint mint made some quarters! The ones made in 2020 have a V75 privy mark on the obverse of the coin! On the day the coins went live, some big coin dealers were asking a ton of people to go and try and buy a V75 coin, then when they had it the big companies would pay them more then the people paid for the coin, and make some cash. What the people did not know was that the big companies would not pay them a fair price for the coin! I was one of the people lucky enough to get a V75 coin. I got the V75 Silver Eagle. I am a kid, so the Gold Eagle was out of my price range. There was a household limit of 1. There were thousands of people online that day trying to get a V75 coin from the U.S. mint. Only a few of the people that set out to get a V75 coin got one. It is now, and will be for a long time, one of the most rare eagle coins ever made.

If I ever try that kind of purchasing experience again with the mint I'm going to need a psychiatrist!! I finally did get the SAE V75 but not before trying to get my order through for about 90 minutes and my nerves on edge. I'm never putting myself through that again so they can keep the Morgan & Peace dollars...lol. Cool blog though....thanks!!

Quite the Silver Eagle for sure. I have one myself, but not through the Mint stampede. 2019-S enhance reverse I thought has a lower mintage at 30,000 coins. 75,000 coins is a low mintage for such a popular series. I hope to get in on the next mint frenzy and try to buy a low mintage product. Might as well give it a try.

Another ridiculous marketing fail by our Mint. When will they learn they are not a market maker, they are a government entity that should provide an example for ANYONE who desires it.

I had my mind set on both and failed to get through the debacle they created. While I still wish to own them, it will not happen any time soon because of the greed created opening day. In short, I out right refuse to contribute to the problem.

Good work getting one! Not many can say the same... I hate, hate, HATE the mint for the utter bullcrap they pull with these new releases. Maybe one day they will learn how to stop shooting themselves in BOTH feet.
