Sales by the United States Mint of Proof 2014-W American Eagle tenth-ounce gold $5 coins and the four-coin gold Proof set are lagging behind those recorded for the 2013-W issues.

In contrast, the U.S. Mint’s sales of Proof 2014-W American Eagle 1-ounce $50, half-ounce $25 and quarter-ounce $10 gold coins are above 2013 levels.

The 2014-W coins went on sale April 3.

The individual Proof 2014-W American Eagle 1-ounce gold coin is no longer available. With a single-coin maximum product authorization at 20,000 coins, the last unaudited sales figures when the option became no longer available in late August was 19,853 coins.

The American Eagle 1-ounce coin is still available in the four-coin gold Proof set.
