    *Bullion Eagles are intended for investors while uncirculated and proof Eagles are intended for coin collectors.The United States Mint does not directly sell bullion American Silver Eagles to the public, but instead they are sold through a network of Authorized Purchasers (AP's) who then resell them to coin dealers, precious metals providers and directly to consumers. As such, the prices vary depending on the seller, the daily silver spot price, demand and other factors. The U.S. Mint charges the AP's a $2 premium per coin above spot. As a very general rule, however, single new bullion American Silver Eagles may often be purchased for about $3 over spot, which is the price shown above.  
 
    **The sales above include all bullion American Silver Eagles sold in a calendar year, not the number of year-dated Eagles sold. (The United States Mint continues to sale prior-year dated coins into a new year until their old inventory is depleted.)  
 
    ***The 25th Anniversary American Silver Eagle Set included three of the normal annual Silver Eagles (bullion, 2011-W proof, and a 2011-W uncirculated) as well as two special collector Silver Eagles (2011-S uncirculated and a 2011-P reverse proof).  
 
    ****December 6, 2012, the U.S. Mint released an update for the 2012 American Silver Eagle San Francisco Proof Set figures, stating that final sales (but still unaudited) were 224,981 after returns and cancellations.
