US Mint Sales: Presidential Set Blazing, Bullion Eagles Steady

by CoinNews.net on February 25, 2010 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures Image 2010 Presidential Dollar Proof Sets are at the top of the leaderboard in weekly sales for the second straight time, according to the latest United States Mint numismatic stats. After 1 1/2 weeks of availability and with the helping hand of a boisterous weekly increase of 75,626, the four-coin set has jumped over the 300,000 marker.

With the Lincoln Presidential $1 coin proof included within, it looks to be a sure bet that the 2010 sets will easily topple last year’s sets. Those were available for just over a year and have adjusted sales of 627,925.

The Millard Fillmore $1 coin launched into circulation one week ago. The initial roll sales are solid, although they are a tad behind the inaugural numbers of the prior two Presidential $1 coin releases. Collectors purchased 26,008 of the Philadelphia rolls and 25,521 of the Denver rolls.

Gold coins enjoyed decent weekly gains. The proof Gold Buffalo advanced 771 to 47,599. As a group, First Spouse Gold coins rallied by 446.

The uncirculated Anna Harrison coin was the biggest individual gainer, rising 118. Collectors are expecting these coins to go off sale with the upcoming release of the Abigail Fillmore gold coins. The Mint’s previous schedule had that set for March 4, but now the release date listed is a generic "March" time frame. Interested parties best buy while they can, as some obviously already are to get in on the low mintages. It would appear that these coins will take top honors in that category, with the proof and uncirculated numbers at 6,150 and 3,488, respectively.

As the current situation stands, next weeks figures for gold pieces could weaken. A not so perfect timing alignment of rising gold prices last week set in motion US Mint price increases this week. The irony is that gold has been on a marched decline since Monday. On Wednesday the Buffalo coins were increased by $50 while the First Spouse Gold Coins each rose by $25 based on higher yellow metal prices from the prior week. But as of the Thursday morning the gold spot price is at $1,091 an ounce, marking what looks to be four straight days of declines. That price is nearly $30 less than the market value of a week ago. Cheaper gold coupled with more expensive gold coins is an ugly match.

On the bullion side of the equation, Gold Eagles improved by another 22,000. Silver Eagles enjoyed a single day jump on Wednesday of 800,000. Prior to that, they were stuck in quicksand since the previous Wednesday. February Silver Eagle figures now stand at 2,050,000, which is currently 75,000 lower than February 2009. The 2010s did breach a new milestone, topping 5 million for the year.

As a reminder, the 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Coin will launch today at noon ET. The US Mint has set up introductory prices of $39.95 for the proof version and $33.95 for the uncirculated option. When released, the commemoratives may be ordered online through the Mint store located at http://catalog.usmint.gov/.

  • 2010 Gold Eagle Coin Value – CoinNews.net
    The price of gold is affecting demand, and seller inventory levels. The yellow metal premiered at just above $1,120 to start 2010. Prices rose to over $1,150 within the first week, but then retreated toward $1,058 by early February. Gold has since returned to the $1,120 area. Both buyers and sellers have been cautious given gold’s volatility. As a prime example, less than one hundred 2010 American Gold Eagles have been auctioned on eBay US. It is sketchy at best to scrutinize the eagles too deeply with so few sold, but the numbers are nevertheless worth noting …
