US Mint Sales: Star-Spangled Banner Coins Make Noise

by Mike Unser on July 12, 2012 · 0 comments

A lack of new products coupled with the Fourth of July holiday break pulled U.S. Mint sales back from record 2012 weekly levels.

U.S. Mint image of Star-Spangled Banner Coins

This U.S. Mint image of the Star-Spangled Banner Bicentennial Silver Dollar Set was delivered in an email promotion around the Fourth of July

Still, last week was one of the better ones for the bureau this year as product sales were supported by the final days of the 2012-S American Silver Eagle Two-Coin Proof Set, the U.S. Mint’s mailed 2012 Summer Catalog and a few email blasts to Mint customers promoting products.

One email reminder sent on the 4th looks like it sparked sales of 2012 Star-Spangled Banner Bicentennial Commemorative Coins. Each of the six related products showed markedly higher week-over-week improvements. Two of Star-Spangled Banner products made it on the Mint’s top-ten bestsellers list. Not bad for products that have been around since March 5, 2012.

51 numismatic products last week outperformed their prior weekly sales. The two previous weekly reports had 76 and 84 overachievers, marking the two best totals of 2012.

Also last week, 16 products topped unit sales of 1,000. The level is high considering the lack of new products and the holiday. The previous report came in at 21 with the help of three debuting products.
