US Mint Sales: Vicksburg Quarters, Lucy Hayes First Spouse Gold Coins Debut

by Mike Unser on September 8, 2011 · 0 comments

Proof and Uncirculated 2011 Lucy Hayes First Spouse Gold CoinsVicksburg quarters and Lucy Hayes First Spouse Gold coins make their debut appearance in the latest United States Mint sales figures. The newest Mint report also shows wider demand across collector products, although the impact of suspending gold coins is evident.

Lucy Hayes First Spouse Gold Coins launched Thursday, September 1. Their debut sales were weaker than most previous releases, but then the gold coins were also only available for just over 24 hours in this reporting period since the United States Mint suspended their sale and that of other gold coins and silver sets on Friday, September 2. The gold coins returned to availability Wednesday at higher prices, which will provide about a half of the normal week of sales in the Mint’s next reporting period.

The following table shows how Lucy Hayes coins stacked up against the opening sales of several other releases:

First Spouse Gold Coins Debut Sales US Mint Issue Date
Lucy Hayes First Spouse Gold Coins 2,122 Sept. 1, 2011
Julia Grant First Spouse Gold Coins 2,598 June 23, 2011
Eliza Johnson First Spouse Gold Coins 2,108 May 5, 2011
Mary Todd Lincoln First Spouse Gold Coins 5,505 Dec. 2, 2010
Buchanan’s Liberty First Spouse Gold Coins 6,127 Sept. 2, 2010
Jane Pierce First Spouse Gold Coins 2,434 June 3, 2010
Abigail Fillmore First Spouse Gold Coins 2,881 Mar. 18, 2010
Margaret Taylor First Spouse Gold Coins 2,839 Dec. 3, 2009
Sarah Polk First Spouse Gold Coins 2,605 Sept. 3, 2009

 

Split across by type, collectors ordered 1,265 proof and 857 uncirculated Lucy Hayes First Spouse Gold Coins between their releases on Thursday through to Friday.

Also in the debut column this week are the first sales of Vicksburg quarters. The coins, which honor Vicksburg National Military Park located in the state of Mississippi, were released in bags and rolls on Monday, August 29. Maintaining a trend that began with the start of the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program in 2010, sales of the quarter bags continue to retreat during their debut. However, sales of the new two-roll sets firmed a bit over the previous rolls of Olympic quarters. The following table shows the new Vicksburg quarter products against past quarter debuts:

*The Mount Hood opening US Mint sales figures are suspect given erroneous order cancellations that occurred at the time.
