With only 4,000 Proof 2015-W American Eagle platinum $100
coins available for sale Dec. 3 from the U.S. Mint, it was
only a matter of time before the limited mintage was gobbled up at
$1,200 per coin.
It reportedly took less than 10 minutes for the coins to be bought
by collectors, dealers and speculators, even with a household ordering
limit of just one coin.

Mint officials confirmed the sellout in response to collector
Anthony Hicks' inquiry on the Mint's Facebook page within minutes
after the noon Eastern Time sales launch.
No other details were provided by Mint officials Dec. 3, but
additional specifics were intended to be collated and released
sometime Dec. 4.
