The single-coin 2022-W Proof American Silver Eagle sold out ahead of its scheduled April 14 release, the United States Mint told customers this week in an email notice, saying their inventory has been depleted by enrollments.
A screenshot of the US Mint’s enrollment page for 2022 American Silver Eagles. It shows that all the enrollments are closed.
US Mint enrollment programs work much like a magazine subscription. When you sign up to receive a family of products, they are shipped automatically to you when they become available.
The latest announcement comes on the heels of another US Mint notice that relayed earlier Silver Eagle sellouts. It told customers that their enrollments had claimed all West Point 2022-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagles and San Francisco 2022-S Proof American Silver Eagles.
The Mint advises customers to use their “Remind Me” tool found on each product’s page (https://catalog.usmint.gov/coins/coin-programs/american-eagle-coins/) in the event any of the coins become available following order processing and reconciliation.
Other US Mint products have been selling out on enrollments as well, like those featuring 2022 American Women quarter dollars.

Collectors will have a chance at buying those on their release dates since they have no enrollment options. The Congratulations Set is limited to 30,000 units and the 2022 Limited Edition Silver Proof Sets is limited to 50,000.
