    You read the headlines. You know that troubled economic times have put global currency on a rollercoaster ride. But millions have found a smarter way to build long-term value with high-grade collectable silver. And right now, those people are lining up to secure some of the last 2012 U. S. Mint Silver Eagles, America's Newest Silver Eagle Dollars. Today, you can graduate to the front of that line. Buy now and you can own these brilliant uncirculated Silver Dollars for only $38.95!

    What does "graduate" mean here? Is it a typo?
    Is it naturally used?

    Re: graduate

    See graduate - definition of graduate by Macmillan Dictionary (#4). I don't know whether it is natural. Marketing and advertising do sometimes use such words for effect, I guess.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
