For United States Silver American Eagles, the demand and volume sold in the first quarter of 2013 is a record, exceeding the previous first quarter record in 2010 by approximately 14%. The total mintage for first quarter 2013 exceeded the total mintage for any entire year in the program history from inception in 1986 until 2007.
