US Mint Coin Sales: UHR’s Top 75K, Eagles Soar, Proof Sets Climb

by Mike Unser on August 6, 2009 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures ImageUHR $20 gold coins roared, Silver Eagles soared, American Samoa quarters performed and US Mint Proof Sets marched forward.

The latest US Mint sales figures also include a fair share of average and sub-par numbers, but the highlights are more interesting:

 

  • Ultra High Relief $20 Gold coins awakened from a several month slumber. Lifting the one-coin order limit to ten helped prop the gold pieces up by 3,799 to reach 75,048. The weekly number jumped fivefold.

  • Bullion Silver Eagles are coins to watch. They recorded the best July since the series launched in 1986. More than 2.8 million were sold. 200,000 are already gone in a young month of August.

  • American Samoa quarters also made headlines. New Mint production figures show them to be the least minted quarter in generations. Their inaugural week quarter-dollar sales were also impressive. Buyers scooped up more than 17,000 two-roll sets.

  • 2009 Proof Sets are cooling, but their weekly increases are still worthy of notice. Collectors purchased more than 915,000 proof sets since June 1 and nearly 386,000 silver sets since July 17.
