US Mint Coin Sales Eased During Summer Break

by Mike Unser on July 9, 2009 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures ImageCollectors had more on their minds than buying coins last week, the latest US Mint figures reveal. Sales were modest, held in check by diversionary summer travel and the celebration of an extended 4th of July holiday weekend.

As has been the case for several weeks, the Mint 2009 Proof Set led in sales. Another 101,409 were purchased on top of the last report, bringing the total sold to 785,821. It looks like the million figure will be breached by month’s end.

In other sales:

  • Braille Silver Dollars, Lincoln Rail Splitter pennies, UHR $20 double eagles and Guam quarter figures retreated.
  • On the bullion side of the equation, silver eagles sprinted past 14 million for the year, and gold eagles reached 682,500 on Monday.
  • Silver coins and sets crawled ahead. Four of six silver Mint offerings were especially slow compared to the prior week.
  • Inaugural Letitia Tyler First Spouse Gold Coin sales were solid given the recent series trend and their competition with the holiday weekend. Also, the no longer sold Louisa Adams proof coin jumped by 504 to 7,454. The uncirculated version was unchanged.

Here are the individual breakouts for many of the coins discussed above:
