US Mint Sales: Annual Sets, Uncirculated Silver Eagle and Commemoratives Lead

by Mike Unser on November 30, 2011 · 0 comments

US Mint 2011 Silver Proof Set, 2011 Mint Set, and 2011 Proof Set

Annual sets held 7 of the 10 top selling positions in the latest weekly sales update from the United States Mint

Buyers keyed on annual sets, the uncirculated Silver Eagle and commemorative coins in the absence of new product releases, the latest sales figures from the United States Mint revealed.

With the popular proof Silver Eagle sold out — its individual sales total remained at 850,000, the companion uncirculated Silver Eagle received a bit of a bump. Collectors ordered 5,142 versus the previous 2,784. That brought sales of the uncirculated Silver Eagle to 199,848 since its September 15 launch. The collectible was not the Mint’s best-seller, but it did rank fourth.

Leading sales were United States Mint annual sets. Of the 13 still available, 6 of them put up slightly better numbers than their previous weekly totals. 7 annual sets made the Mint’s top-ten selling list.

  1. 2011 Proof Sets (+20,997 to 973,878)
  2. 2011 Silver Proof Sets (7,306 to 507,701)
  3. 2011 Mint Set (6,808 to 475,777)
  4. 2011-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle (+5,142 to 199,848)
  5. 2011 Presidential $1 Proof Set (3,379 to 257,019)
  6. 2011 Presidential $1 Uncirculated Set (2,548 to 55,154)
  7. 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set (2,354 to 126,924)
  8. James Garfield Presidential $1 (P) Roll (2,169 to 20,963)
  9. James Garfield Presidential $1 (D) Roll (1,901 to 20,287)
  10. 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set (1,407 to 127,014)

Overall, 39 United States Mint products were more popular than the previous week. In contrast, 69 products had outperformed their previous weekly sales in the prior report.

Other improving products included the Medal of Honor and U.S. Army commemorative coins. 6 of 10 commemoratives registered modestly higher numbers. Their sales no doubt improved due to their featured presentations in the Mint’s mailed 2011 Holiday Catalog and their upcoming December 16 sales deadline.

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