US Mint Image of 2011 Proof American Silver EagleThe latest round of US Mint sales figures highlights several product milestones and the debut performance of the Grant Presidential $1 Coin & Medal Set.

Notably, 2011 Proof Silver Eagles and 2011 Mint Sets topped 400,000 in sales.

The popular Proof Silver Eagle achieved the milestone much quicker, having only been released on June 30. The collector .999 fine silver coin advanced 40,368 during its first full week of availability. It now sits with US Mint sales of 407,991. At $59.95 a pop, the Proof Silver Eagle dollar total is a smidgen under $24.5 million.

Uncirculated 2011 Mint Sets snuck over the milestone with weekly US Mint sales of 2,421. That lifted its total to 401,772. The 28-coin uncirculated Mint Set was released on February 8 and is priced at $31.95. Its weekly sales have been in the "modest" range of several thousand for some time, much like the 2010 Mint Sets have been around several hundred. That set launched last July and is also available for the same $31.95 price. Its latest 239 increase brought the set’s current sales to 574,277.

The Ulysses S. Grant Presidential $1 Coin & Julia Grant First Spouse Medal Set was released one week ago. US Mint sales reached 1,569. The shocker, if the numbers stand, is the Lincoln Presidential $1 Coin & Julia Grant First Spouse Medal Set. After putting up sub-100 numbers for several weeks, its weekly sales surged 5,063. That nearly tripled the set’s total which is currently at 17,763.

Last week’s top six numismatic product sellers were:

  1. Proof Silver Eagles (+40,368)
  2. 2011 Proof Sets (+5,202)
  3. Lincoln Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Sets (+5,063)
  4. 2011 Silver Proof Sets (+2,703)
  5. September 11 Silver Medals (+2,611)
  6. 2011 Mint Sets (+2,421)

Bullion coins have been sprinting in the last seven days. The 24-karat Gold Buffalo coin matched its previous pick-up of 2,000. All other bullion products that sold effortlessly surpassed their previous weekly gains, as shown in the following US Mint sales tables:
