US Mint Gold, Platinum and Silver Coin Sales Figures, Jan 6

US Mint Sales Figures Image

Since the previous US Mint sales figures were reported, the one-quarter ounce 2008-W American Eagle Gold Proof coin has sold out, and that happened Monday.

Fewer and fewer 2008-dated bullion collector coins remain. Only the American Eagle gold and silver uncirculated coins and the 1/10 ounce gold proof eagle are still sold by the Mint.

The one-half ounce American Eagle Gold Proof, which sold out Dec. 24, stands out for the second consecutive reporting period. Sales surged by 5,079 coins, or 87.4 percent. That follows its previous 83.3 percent jump.

To place these numbers in perspective, over 70 percent of its total inventory were depleted within the last few weeks. While these coins may have not been the collector’s first pick earlier in 2008, the lack of other options at least garnered their fifteen minutes of fame late in 2008. Will the final remaining 1/10 ounce proof option now see the collector’s spot light?

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