The US Mint is left with two 2008-W American Eagles gold coins in the uncirculated collector series inventory. The 1 oz option sold out Wednesday. Sales were respectable with an increase of 799, or 9.3 percent.

The biggest jumper in the series was the 1/4 oz option, rising 11.4 percent. The 1/4 oz size settled down with an increase of just 0.6% following last week’s reported surge of 48.1 percent. After the current inventory is exhausted, these two coins will not be sold by the Mint again.

2009 Ultra High Relief $20 Double Eagle gold coins moved nicely, rising by 2,579, or 5.7 percent. Collectors have now purchased 47,999 UHRs since they went on sale Jan. 22.

Although not listed in the tables below, the commemorative Lincoln Silver Dollars had an excellent first week. 116,558 of the proof and 61,164 of the uncirculated were sold.

The Mint did not adjust gold coin prices Thursday since no threshold levels were breached during the last several days. However, if the trend in rising gold prices continues or should stay where they are now, the Mint will increase prices next Thursday.

Here are the latest US Mint sales tables for the currently sold American Eagle and Ultra-High Relief coins:
