US Mint Sales Figures: Silver Proof Sets and Eagles Sail, UHR’s Top 70,000

by Mike Unser on July 22, 2009 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures ImageWhat a difference a week can make. Collectors partially awoke from a summer slumber and began to buy US coins.

Ultra High Relief $20 Gold coins surpassed 70,000, newly released 2009 Silver Proof Sets reached 271,372 in three days, American Eagle Silver bullion coins topped 15.8 million, and demand was higher for the remaining US Mint silver coins.

Aside from several straggling First Spouse Gold coins, the US Mint had a good week — at least better than the last. Even non silver 2009 Proof Sets emerged from a haze to rise 45,729 compared to the last reported 19,547. Tagging along were improved Lincoln Formative Years penny figures, jumping 5,179 from the prior 3,572.

American Samoa Quarters go on sale Monday, July 27. If tradition holds, the US Mint will take rolls and bags of Guam quarters off sale immediately prior.

Sales summations from sister sites of CoinNews follow:

  • First Spouse Gold Coin Sales Figures – FirstSpouseCoins.us
    US Mint First Spouse Gold Coin sales were mostly on par with typical summer figures of late — there was no coin to really brag about… Again leaders from a pure numbers stand point were Letitia Tyler First Spouse Coins issued July 2. Proof and uncirculated options increased by 376 and 173, respectively…
  • Silver Coin Sales Climb, Eagles Pass 15.8M – SilverCoinsToday.com
    Last week figures had silver coin demand declining across all US Mint offerings with the exception of red-hot silver eagle bullion coins. Not so for recent sales.
