US Mint Sales: 2010 Proof Silver Eagles Close to Third Best Ever

by CoinNews.net on January 6, 2011 · 0 comments

US Mint sales figures eased higher following the Christmas holiday break. 2010 Proof Silver Eagles advanced more than 21,000 after their numbers unexpectedly remained unchanged for a week and they were declared sold out on December 28.

Mint CoinsDemand was exceptionally strong for the Proof Silver Eagles immediately following their November 19 release. In just over two weeks they had jumped past previous issues and attained the ninth best ranking.

Their new tally stands at 856,356, making them the third best ever seller since the series launched in 1986. Their debuting first year and succeeding second year of issue remain number #1 and #2, respectively. The following table shows how the 2010 Proof Silver Eagles stand up to their peers:

1986-2010 Proof Silver Eagles Sales / Mintages

1986 1,446,778 1
1987 904,732 2

2010 856,356 3

 

US Mint sales figures also provide more clarity for the recent sell outs of the one-half ounce and four-coin set of the 2010 Proof Gold Eagles. The top number for the one-half ounce Gold Eagle has wobbled slightly since their sell out on December 22. Two weeks ago the US Mint sales report had them up 35. The latest figures show they have declined 166 to 10,000. The even count may indicate a finalized number. The four-coin set sold out three days ago. They advanced 3,002 versus the prior 1,181. Totals sales are at 36,029.

Finally, the latest US Mint sales reveal the debuting performance of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Dollar Coin Cover. It was released on the final day of last year. As expected, they outshined prior openings from last year.
