Today at Noon, the United States Mint issued a press release with some shocking and disappointing news. The collectible 2009 Proof and Uncirculated Gold and Silver Eagles will not be offered this year. As partial consolation, the press release also announced plans to offer the 2009 Proof Gold Buffalo, the 2009 Proof Platinum Eagle, and fractional weight Gold Eagle bullion coins.
As it now stands, the following collector coins are now canceled:
2009 Proof Silver Eagle
2009-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle
2009 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set
2009 Proof $50 Gold Eagle (one ounce)
2009 Proof $25 Gold Eagle (one-half ounce)
2009 Proof $10 Gold Eagle (one-quarter ounce)
2009 Proof $5 Gold Eagle (one-tenth ounce)
