US Mint Sales: Silver Products Return, Hayes Dollar Covers Debut

Hayes Presidential Dollar Coin Cover

The United States Mint this week reported the debut sales for the Hayes Presidential Dollar Coin Cover

Buyers opted to hand out more money for coins last week as 63 United States Mint products outperformed their previous weekly gains, the latest sales figures from the bureau revealed.

Friday’s returning silver coins and sets helped raise sales, although some silver products again had their totals cut lower than shown in the previous Mint sales report. The 2011-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle led those declines, dropping 424 to 182,100.

Improving silver products included the 2011-W Proof American Silver Eagle, the 2011 Silver Proof Set and collector five-ounce coins, as highlighted by the Mint’s top seven selling numismatic products:

  1. Hayes Presidential Dollar Coin Cover (+14,051)
  2. 2011 Proof Set (+11,398 to 856,820)
  3. 2011 Mint Set (+4,085 to 437,553)
  4. 2011 Proof American Silver Eagle (+3,674 to 755,777)
  5. 2011 Silver Proof Set (+3,450 to 465,216)
  6. 2011 Presidential $1 Proof Set (+2,175 to 238,255)
  7. Gettysburg ATB 5 Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin (2,134 to 11,177)

Mount Hood ATB 5 Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins also advanced 655 to 23,077 while the no longer available Grand Canyon ATB coin fell 69 to 27,444.

Hayes Presidential $1 Coin Covers were released Tuesday, October 4. Their debut sales came in at 14,051. That is under the opening performances of other recent issues, as illustrated in the following table.

Although collector gold coin prices were raised Wednesday, they previously had their prices cut for four straight weeks. Those lower prices lifted sales of gold products last week. The most notable improvement went to the one-ounce 2011-W American Eagle Gold Proof Coin. After several weeks of falling totals, its weekly sales jumped 1,265 to 29,651.

The latest US Mint sales figures for bullion and collector coins and sets are available in the following tables:
