The 1995-W Silver Eagle is the key date of the series and was once the topic of numerous headlines as PR70DCAM examples of this date crossed the auction block at stupendous numbers. The first of these headlines occurred in early 2013, when a PCGS PR70DCAM sold for $86,655 in a Great Collections auction. Later that year, a second PCGS PR70DCAM sold for $55,550. As the population expanded, the price began a steady march downward. In fact, if one looks at the APR for this date, every new sale sold for less than the previous -- without exception. In 2017, the price finally stabilized in the $15,000 to $16,000 range - still an impressive price for a Silver Eagle.
The lesson here is that the laws of supply and demand are immutable -- if the supply increases and demand remains the same, the price must come down. Conversely, if demand increases and the supply remains the same, the price must go up. In this case, it is probable that the supply of PCGS PR70DCAM 1995-W Eagles will increase over time, albeit slowly. Hopefully, demand will increase at the same pace.
