US Mint Sales: 2009 Proof Sets Top 975K, UHRs Near 83K

US Mint Sales Figures Image US Mint coin sales trended slightly lower last week with the exception of silver coin demand which was on the rise. Frankly, no numbers unexpectedly shouted and said "look at me."

 

Here are several highlights, plus a few topics that should make next week sales figures more interesting:

  • UHR $20 Double Eagle sales continue to flow strong with 2,259 added for a new total of 82,959. (News of the week is about the new 25 coin limit increase.)

  • Jackson’s Liberty First Spouse proof coin sold out last week and that proved to be beneficial for the uncirculated option. It rose by 261 versus the prior weekly climb of only 34.

  • American Silver Eagle Bullion coins settled down, no doubt thanks to the recent volatile movement of silver prices. While the last sales report showed the eagles had jumped by 475,000 in a week, the latest seven day gain is down to 275,000. Bullion American Gold Eagles fared slightly better although demand was still down with a rise of 15,000 versus the previous 22,000.

  • 2009 Proof Sets continue to perform. The clad set climbed another 19,066 and is less than 25,000 away from one million. It looks like the threshold will be breached within two weeks. The silver set rose by 17,845, which was several hundred better than the prior week.

  • Lincoln Formative Years Rolls are back on sale this week. They were placed off sale by the Mint just two weeks ago when the two-roll sets had reached 300,246. A week later the number was revised down to 300,000. The most recent figures now show 296,000 have been sold.

  • On the same topic, Lincoln Professional Life roll sets jumped up another 24,899 to 177,045. Next week the sales news will focus on the inaugural day figures for the 2009 Lincoln Cent Proof Sets, which became available for $7.95 on Wednesday.

    First Spouse Gold Coin sales mostly declined with only three of the nine U.S. Mint gold commemoratives showing improvements compared to the prior report.
