US Mint Sales Figures Image

There has not been any new sellouts in bullion collector coins since the Mint’s last reported sales figures.

Then, the quarter-ounce 2008-W American Eagle Gold Proof coin was the biggest mover, with a 144 percent sales increase and a jump of 8,722 coins. The option sold out Monday, January 5. The newest figures show a 2.9 percent increase.

Strangely, now the half-ounce proof has jumped up by 3,905 coins, or 35.9 percent. The last figures had a zero percent increase, which was understandable considering the option sold out December 24. And stranger, the 4-coin proof set also increased by 3,503 coins, and those sold out nearly one month ago. A look back through sales numbers indicates the tally for this coin should have likely been updated in Mint figures several weeks back.

The remaining 2008-dated American Eagle and Buffalo coins were suspended for a part of Wednesday through Thursday morning to adjust pricing in accordance with the Mint’s new policy. Eagle coin prices declined between 3.7 percent and 4.4 percent, which should help boost sales.

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