US Mint Gold, Platinum and Silver Coin Sales Figures, Jan 29

by CoinNews.net on January 29, 2009 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures ImageTwo US Mint collector coins sold out since the last reported sales figures — individual 2008-W American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coins and one-tenth ounce 2008-W Eagle Gold Proof Coins.

The former showed a zero increase in sales, as was the case in the last report and still noted as unusual. The latter gold proof coins expectedly rose. Sales increased by 2,503 coins, or by 18.4 percent compared to last week’s reported 16.4 percent increase.

Susan Headley from About.com: Coins wrote Tuesday of her finding from the Mint that Ultra-High Relief Double Eagle coin sold figures were at 41,664 (as of 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday), with 28,173 gone within the first day of the modern Double Eagle release. Reports were abound that sales were on fire, and that looks to be affirmed.

The 2009 Ultra-High Relief and remaining uncirculated 2008-dated American Eagle gold coins went up in price Thursday, in accordance with the Mint’s pricing policy and in line with recently higher gold prices. Prices increases were around 4 percent, ranging between $5 for the 1/10 oz eagle to as high as $92.50 for the four-coin set.

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