US Mint Sales: 2011 Sets Draw Solid Numbers

by Mike Unser on February 10, 2011 · 0 comments

Newly released coins and sets dominated the sales charts in the latest round of figures published by the US Mint. Several older-dated numismatic products also picked up a touch.

Mint CoinsAlthough the new US Mint annual sets have started slower, weekly sales increases continue to top the 20,000 level.

2011 Proof Sets added 20,473 versus the previous weekly gain of 21,784. Collectors have ordered 321,280 at a price tag of $31.95 each since their release on Jan. 11, giving the US Mint a $10.2 million boost in revenue. Last year’s issue, which is still available, rose 2,752 against 3,043. Their tally stands at 1,060,329.

2011 Silver Proof Sets rose 23,151 in their first full week of sales following their release on Jan. 25. Priced at $67.95 with 232,518 now sold, the sets have added $15.8 million to US Mint coffers. The weekly gain for last year’s set, also still on sale, picked up from the prior weekly increase of 2,868 to 3,213.

2011 Mint Sets launched on Feb. 8 for a price of $31.95, but their debut sales figures will not be in until next week. The lowest opening sales for these sets over the last several years was just above 200,000. Recent trends suggest that the 2011 Mint Sets will start slower than that.

The 2011 United States Army Commemoratives opening sales have been added to the tables below. They went on sale Jan. 31. The silver dollars were most popular with total sales at 13.5 percent of their authorized 500,000 maximum. The 50c clads came in second place with a total of 49,690, representing 6.6 percent of their 750,000 maximum mintage. The $5 gold pieces brought up the rear with 10,906 sold, which is 10.9 percent of their authorized limit of 100,000.

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