US Mint Sales Figures ImageUltra High Relief (UHR) $20 gold coins break a new threshold and Braille Commemorative Silver Dollar sales soar, according to the latest US Mint sales report.

Ultra High Relief (UHR) $20 gold coin sales cooled off compared to the last figures, but rose above the magic 60,000 barrier. With an average price of around $1200 each, the total is quite impressive.

In a surprise for the second straight week, sales of Louis Braille Silver Dollars shot up… really shot up. Proofs jumped by 38.1 percent over the prior numbers, with 21,636 additional sold. The uncirculated options rose by nearly 30 percent, with 10,200 more purchased by collectors.

The cumulative total for the series is now just over 125,000. If the trend over the last two weeks continues, an eventual sellout is not unthinkable.
