US Mint Sales: Gold and Silver Coins Slow

by CoinNews.net on October 21, 2010 · 1 comment

US Mint Sales Figures ImageCoins left U.S. Mint inventories slower. Only a handful of products peaked over their previous weekly gains, according to the latest coin sales figures from the United States Mint.

The 2009 Quarters Silver Proof Sets stood taller for a second straight week, rising 1,762 against 1,070. The set remains the best Mint bargain considering it is priced at $29.95 and includes over an ounce of silver worth $26 at a silver spot of $24.

In contrast, the $32.95 price of the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set with its five coins has a melt value of $21.70, making it less of a buying bargain.

One of the few outperforming coins was the uncirculated Margaret Taylor 24-karat gold piece, advancing 180 over the top of last week’s reported increase of 28. The uncirculated Abigail Fillmore also did better. First Spouse Gold Coins rose 539 as a group, which was down from 683.

Mint buyers ordered fewer American Eagle bullion coins in the last seven days. One ounce Gold Eagles advanced 16,000 versus 38,000 while Silver Eagles gained 650,000 against 835,000. The Silver Eagles did reach 2 million for the month, passing the 1.88 million sold in September. Year-to-date Silver Eagle sales will surpass the 2009 annual record of 28.76 million in less than two weeks at their current pace.

The following tables show the latest coin sales figures as reported by the US Mint:
