US Mint Sales: Dollar and Quarter Products Debut, Gold Coins Higher

by Mike Unser on May 3, 2012 · 0 comments

2012 Native American Dollars, Quarters Set, and $1 Proof Set

The introduction of three new coin products last week helped spur U.S. Mint sales

Three debuting collector products and cheaper prices for gold coins helped spur sales, based on the latest sales figures from the United States Mint.

42 collector products improved over their prior weekly sales as compared to 26 out-performers in the previous sales report, and unit sales spiked as a result of the introduction of the 2012 Presidential $1 Coin Proof Sets, 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Sets and 2012 Native American $1 Coins.

Debut Sales for 2012 Presidential Dollar Proof Sets

2012 Presidential Dollar Proof Sets were most sought after by collectors last week, earning the Mint’s top numismatic product of the week.

U.S. Mint sales figures had the debut at 146,097 between its release on Tuesday and through to Monday. The level is down from the 163,129 sold during a comparable debut period for last year’s set. The older set is still available with weekly sales up 467 to 288,675. This year’s dollar proof set is priced at $18.95 while last year’s set is $1 more.

Sales Debut of 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Sets

2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Sets were also released last Tuesday with opening sales of 14,840, making it the Mint’s second best seller of the week. Sales were also quicker than last year’s set as it took nearly two weeks for 14,622 of them to get claimed.

This year’s sets are less expensive at $12.95. The 2010 and 2011-dated sets remain available for $21.95 each, with their current sales at 34,004 and 32,769, respectively.

Sales Debut of 2012 Native American Dollar

Rolls and boxes of Native American $1’s were released Thursday and a total of 967,775 dollars were sold by Monday, accounting for 17.3% of the 5.6 million produced. Unit sales and number of coins sold by product are offered in the following table:

Product Price Unit Sales $1 Coins
25-Coin Roll (P) $32.95 9,748 243,700
25-Coin Roll (D) $32.95 9,753 243,825

500-Coin Box (D) $550.95 94 47,000
Total $1’s 967,775

 

Demand proved higher for rolls and boxes of Chester Arthur $1 Coins which rolled out on April 5 as more than 2.86 million were ordered during the first five days. Sales moved past 6.19 million by the following week and the U.S. Mint had to produce more.

Native American $1 Coins did make it on the Mint’s top-selling product list.

Sales increases followed across two of the three Star-Spangled Banner Commemorative Gold Coin products, all of the First Spouse Gold Coins and the 2012 Proof American Gold Buffalo.
