US Mint Sales: Silver Coins and Presidential $1’s Stronger, Annual Sets Updated

by Mike Unser on January 5, 2012 · 1 comment

US Mint 2010 Annual Sets

New US Mint data offers updated sales for 2010-dated annual sets which went off sale Friday

It was almost back to basics for collectors as the latest United States Mint sales figures show improved demand for numismatic products containing silver coins, Presidential $1 coins and America the Beautiful Quarters. Updates sales for the 2010-dated annual sets which were taken off sale on December 30 are also available.

Demand for silver coins was augmented due to their price reductions on December 27. The Uncirculated American Silver Eagle, which had its price cut by $5, jumped forth 4,941 to 230,343. Each of the four America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins had their prices chopped by $25. Their weekly sales improvements ranged from 25% to 133%. Of note, the Mount Hood five ounce coin could sell out at any moment since a scant 431 of the minted 27,000 remained as of Tuesday.

James Garfield Presidential Dollar Coin Cover Sales Debut

Increased interest in Presidential $1 coins has picked up since the U.S. Treasury announced an end to their production. Sales were up for Presidential $1 coin covers, medal sets and some of the $1 rolls. The December 29 release of the James Garfield Presidential Dollar Coin Cover also helped contribute to sales of related $1 products. Garfield Presidential cover debut sales registered at 13,843, the slowest start in the American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series to date.

The US Mint never ceases to amaze me. Sometimes positively. Sometimes I just scratch my head. Okay, so their final 2011 sales figure for silver eagles was 39,868,500. Were they afraid of the 40 million mark? Very curious, because since January 1, 2012 was a Sunday and January 2 was a holiday, now they say that January 2012 sales (in just 2 or 3 days of work) has minted 3,372,000 silver eagles!!! There’s no way those were all made in 2012 and not 2011. But why play with the figures? Oh, I forgot. It’s a government thing. 🙂
