US Mint Sales: 2010 Proof Sets Top 1 Million, Quarters Coin Set Debut

by Mike Unser on December 16, 2010 · 1 comment

New US Mint sales figures include two debuting products and a milestone for 2010 Proof Sets.

Mint CoinsThe Mint’s most popular set offering posted a weekly advance of 22,086 and topped the 1 million marker in sales. It has been available since July 22, 2010 — less than five months, which makes the achievement impressive.

Yet, 2010 Proof Sets have a way to go to even match the 1.4+ million in sales the previous two issues achieved. They are also up against a higher wall when considering that collectors’ attention may shift away from them when the US Mint releases the 2011 Proof Set in January.

After missing an appearance in last week’s US Mint sales report, the 2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set showed up with its opening sales. The set launched on November 23, 2010. It debuted at 16,307, making it the most popular product of the three new quarter coin sets. In contrast, the quarters circulating coin set now stands at 10,832 and the Hot Springs quarter three coin set is at 13,436. Both of those products were released several days prior to the quarters uncirculated coin set.

America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins opened last Friday with sales of 75,000, as a previous column discussed. There were only 165,000 of the five ounce bullion coins minted this year.

2010 Proof Silver Eagle sales enjoyed a weekly jump of 89,108 to nearly 797,000 in just over three weeks time. Next week’s numbers may top 850,000. If that does happen, they will rank as the third most popular Proof Silver Eagle. The debuting 1986 Proof Silver Eagle stands at the top with over 1.4 million in sales.

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