US Mint Sales: Debuting Products Lead but Silver Coins Impress

by Mike Unser on May 31, 2012 · 0 comments

2012 Mint Set and Grover Cleveland $1 rolls, bags and boxes

Debut sales have been released for Grover Cleveland $1 rolls, bags and boxes and the 2012 US Mint Set

Debuting products led U.S. Mint sales but a number of silver coins and a few gold coins also appeared prominently on the sales charts.

Newly released 2012 U.S. Mint Uncirculated Coin Sets reached opening sales of 164,459 to lead all collector offerings last week. While other world mints would be thrilled to score such high sales for a new product, it represents yet another year in which opening demand has waned for a core annual set from the U.S. Mint. For more, follow the above link.

Grover Cleveland Presidential $1 coins are a hit, helped by the Treasury Department’s order to suspend their public circulation. More than 3.75 million sold within rolls, bags and boxes over the extended weekend, earning the best debut to date for the younger Presidential $1 coin products. Several showed up in the U.S. Mint’s top-ten seller list.

  9. Grover Cleveland Presidential (D) $1 250-coin box (+1,857)

In silver products, each of the America the Beautiful 5 Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins showed weekly improvements. The five 2011-dated silver coins got some extra eyeballs due to declining silver prices and news of Monday’s release of the first 2012-dated coin honoring El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico.

Also improving over their previous weekly sales were uncirculated Silver Eagles, the 2012 Quarters Silver Proof Set, the proof Star-Spangled Banner Silver Dollars and proof and uncirculated Infantry Soldier Silver Dollars.

Speaking of the Infantry silver coins, the Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar Defenders of Freedom Set cannot seem to catch a break as sales have moved backwards for three straight weeks. Now at 43,286 of the authorized 50,000 units, the sets dropped 2,709 in the first decline, 33 in the next and 408 in the most recent weekly results. Returns and cancellations have outnumbered new sales by 3,150 since May 7.

In gold coins, the few overachieving ones were two of the seven First Spouse Gold Coins and four of the available six 2011-2012 Proof American Gold Eagle coin products.
