US Mint Gold, Platinum and Silver Coin Sales Figures, Dec 24

US Mint Sales Figures Image

Two US Mint gold coins have sold out since the Mint sales figures were reported last Thursday. The proof American Eagle Gold Four-Coin Set went late last week and the one-half ounce option disappeared from Mint store shelves by this morning.

The former appears to have already been accounted for in Mint stats given no increase was reported. However, sales of the one-half ounce Eagle proof were on fire with a 83.3 percent rise, or up 2,639 to 5,808 total. The remaining proof sizes are showing strong numbers as well, but are in the shadows compared to the demand for uncirculated gold Eagle coins. (Only the one ounce uncirculated version will be minted again while all American Eagle gold proof options will return in 2009.)

It is now much quicker to talk about coins still available versus those that are gone — and in many cases for good, since the Mint slashed gold and platinum coins for 2009. Coins that have been sold out for more than a week show no or very little number movement.

Here are the latest US Mint sales figures for the major American Eagle and American Buffalo collector products:
