US Mint Sales: Gold Eagles Top 1M, Proof Presidential Dollars Plunge

by CoinNews.net on October 14, 2009 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures Image A month ago our US Mint sales report headline said "Presidential Dollar Sets Pass 600K." Today that picture reverses as the proof dollars withdraw to fall back below the milestone. Several other products fell as well in a week where demand for collector coins trended mostly lower.

There were several exceptions, especially for coins of yellow complexion. Bullion American Gold Eagles passed 1 million, Ultra High Relief’s picked up slightly and seven out of ten First Spouse Gold Coins improved over the prior week. These and other highlights follow:

  • Whether it was a US Mint accounting correction or massive cancellation(s)/return(s), Presidential Dollar Proof Sets plummeted by 33,038 to fall to 576,211.

  • Other proof sets also disappointed. 2009 Proof Set sales increased by 6,406 compared to the previous 27,856. 2009 Silver Proof Sets actually declined by 1,001.

  • Braille products moved weakly. The newly released Braille Education set came in at 2,719 during the first four days of availability. The standalone uncirculated silver dollar picked up by just 343, and those within the easy-open capsule fell by 109.

  • 2009 US Mint Sets are still hot following their release on Oct. 1. In eleven days, 392,007 have been purchased.

  • UHR Double Eagle Gold Coins are still shy of hitting 100,000, but sales improved slightly. 1,334 were added versus the previous weekly gain of 1,172.

  • As for bullion coins, during the last seven days another 610,000 Silver Eagles and 24,000 Gold Eagles were added. Respectable numbers and reflective of record high silver and gold prices.
