US Mint Sales: 2010 Sets Soar, Bullion Gold Coins Anemic

by Mike Unser on September 2, 2010 · 0 comments

US Mint Sales Figures Image Demand for United States Mint numismatic coins picked up for a second straight week, but interest in bullion coins was limited.

The U.S. Mint’s release of the 2010 Silver Proof Set went well with four-day debuting sales at a respectable 241,656. Their launch lifted other annual sets also as many registered sharp weekly increases over prior sales, including the:

  • 2010 Proof Set which advanced 47,704 versus 30,669
  • 2010 Quarters Silver Proof Set which added 5,950 against 4,884
  • 2010 Mint Set which grew 39,617 over 19,981

In other numismatic products, bags and rolls of all the America the Beautiful Quarters™ ticked higher. Another big spike in quarter sales will occur this month when the next 2010 quarter is issued. According to the Mint’s September schedule, that will occur on the 20th when the Grand Canyon National Park Quarter is released.

2010 Buffalo Gold Proof Coins screamed higher. They soared by 2,167 to mark their best pick up since the week after their debuting sales of 15,071 in early June.

Gold coins did not move higher as a group, however, like they did two weeks ago. First Spouse Gold Coins are an example. The 24 karat gold pieces advanced 348, or 220 less than their prior gain. Still, the level was more than two times the 159 increase of three weeks ago. On the topic of first lady gold coins, Buchanan’s Liberty goes on sale today at noon ET. That also likely means the oldest Sarah Polk First Spouse Gold Coins will go off sale this morning.

Bullion coins have been mostly anemic between Wednesday and Monday (early September and official ending August sales are not yet available). Fractional 1/4 oz American Gold Eagles did enter the sales board for the first time in a month, rising 2,000. The 1 oz Gold Eagles advanced a modest 1,500. American Silver Eagles gained the most, as typical, but their 590,000 increase was less than many other advances this year. They did top 23 million in year-to-date sales.

The following sales tables provide a breakout of the most recent U.S. Mint coin sales figures.
