Surely, several lower-grade 1921 Walking Liberty half dollars sold on eBay in September, but none was pricey enough to make it to this list, with the lowest-priced piece coming in at just over $900 last month.
In early October, it looked like the U.S. Mint was well on its way to achieving a monthly sales record for the American eagle silver coins. As we fall through October and look at some crisp new sales numbers released by the U.S. Mint, it’s evident that the monthly production figures remain strong for the American silver eagles, and the same can be said for 1 oz.
