2011-P Glacier National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin

Collectors were clearly more focused on American Silver Eagle 25th Anniversary Sets last week as the maximum 100,000 sold out within five hours while the more 35,000 limited 2011-P Glacier National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin registered sales of 10,680 during the several days since its release.

According to the latest sales figures from the United States Mint, the anniversary sets were easily its most popular numismatic product of the week despite their steeper $299.95 price. In contrast, the Glacier 5 Oz Silver Coin, sold for $229.95, ranked fourth. The following is a list of the top five selling United States Mint collector products:

  1. American Silver Eagle 25th Anniversary Sets (100,000)
  2. 2011 Proof Silver Eagles (+22,110 to 805,897)
  3. 2011 Proof Set (+12,860 to 894,714)
  4. 2011-P Glacier National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin (+10,680)
  5. 2011 Silver Proof Set (+4,961 to 481,153)

Overall, 54 numismatic products offered by the Mint outshined their previous weekly sales versus the 48 out-performers noted in the prior sales account.

Ironically, the United States Mint reported that the sales total for the uncirculated 2011-W American Silver Eagle dropped once again — that occurred 3 times in October. The collector coin, sold individually by the Mint for $50.95 but also contained within the 25th anniversary sets, had its sales decremented by 12,464 to 183,043. In reality, given that 100,000 are within the sold out anniversary sets, the new total is actually around 283,000.

The proof 2011-W American Silver Eagle, sold individually for $58.95 and also included in anniversary sets, advanced 22,110 to 805,897. Again, that total should mentally get kicked up by 100,000.

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