US Mint Sales: Quarters Coin Set, Olympic 5 Oz Silver and Lucretia Gold Debut

by Mike Unser on December 7, 2011 · 0 comments

2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set

The 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set in one of three U.S. Mint products to debut last week

Debut sales are in for three newly released United States products, including the 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set, 2011 Lucretia Garfield First Spouse Gold Coins and the 2011-P Olympic National Park Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin.

While none of the products were tip-top-sellers for the Mint, two of them did show up in the bureau’s top-ten weekly sales list.

2011 ATB Quarters Circulating Coin Set Debut Sales

Appearing in the third spot was the 2011 Quarters Circulating Coin Set. Released Tuesday, November 29, collectors scooped up 10,098 by Monday. The debut nearly doubles last year’s set of 5,684, but the comparison is uneven given the 2010 set’s opening sales were for a 3-day period and it was competing against the popular 2010-W Proof Silver Eagle which had launched on the same day (November 19).

Still available from the Mint and at the same price as the 2011 set ($9.95), the 2010 Quarters Circulating Coin Set improved by 726 with a new sales total of 23,089.

2011-P Olympic Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin Debut Sales

Showing up as the fifth best seller for the Mint was the new 2011-P five-ouncer featuring Olympic National Park. Also released on Tuesday, its debut sales were 8,662. That made it the slowest starter in the five-ounce uncirculated coin series.

Seven others have been released thus far — all this year, with the first four selling out and the fifth nearing the point.

Debut Sales for 2011 Lucretia Garfield First Spouse Gold Coins

Honoring Lucretia Garfield, the 21st issues in the First Spouse Gold Coin series and the fourth of the year registered debut sales of 2,352, with 1,478 for the proof and 874 for the uncirculated.

Here is a quick snapshot of how those sales stack up against the opening figures of several other recent releases:
