US Mint Sales: 2009 Gold Proof Buffalo Coins Near 50,000

by CoinNews.net on March 18, 2010 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures Image Action picked up for numismatic coins, according to the latest US Mint sales report.

The prior report showed that only three products garnered week-over-week improvements. More than a dozen passed that barrier in the latest round of figures.

On the notable front, 2009 Gold Proof Buffalo coins increased by 598 compared to the previous 384 and are nearing 50,000 in sales. In fact, as of Sunday their total was at 48,994 which very likely means the 50K ceiling was actually topped by Tuesday or Wednesday. The proof Buffalo was released late last year on October 29, 2009.

Disabled American Veterans Silver Dollars advanced 16,323 for the proofs to 107,316 while uncirculated sales rose 5,779 to reach 46,620. The combined numbers are at 153,936. At the current pace it would take 9 weeks for the coins to sell out. The pace, however, is likely to slacken further as more days pass and then as the commemorative Boy Scouts Coins start to grab collectors’ attention following their Tuesday, March 23 release.

First Spouse Gold coins relaxed as a group, with a combined weekly increase of 127 versus the prior 193. Expect the Anna Harrison options to disappear before noon on Thursday with the release of the Abigail Fillmore First Spouse Gold Coin at noon ET.
