US Coin Sales: Silver Eagles and Core Annual Sets Top 5 Sellers

by Mike Unser on August 9, 2012 · 0 comments

2012 Uncirculated American Eagle Silver Coin

New 2012-W Uncirculated Silver Eagles made U.S. Mint coin sales a bit more interesting

New coin sales reported by the U.S. Mint were far from exciting but they were a tad more interesting with 2012-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagles debuting.

Released one week ago with starting sales of 123,801, the Silver Eagles leapt to the top selling spot among U.S. Mint collector products. The level, however, was sharply lower from past years, as described in this coin news article.

Right behind to claim second place were 2012-W Proof Silver Eagles with a stout weekly pick-up of 21,288. The sales pace was expectantly slower from the previous +34,061 increase which had been stoked by the coin’s return from suspension and reduced price.

Rounding out the top five sellers were three of the Mint’s core annual sets. The following list highlights:

U.S. Mint Top Selling Collector Products of the Week

  1. 2012 Uncirculated Silver Eagles (+123,801)
  2. 2012 Proof Silver Eagles (+21,288 to 548,094)
  3. 2012 Proof Set (+10,467 to 480,896)
  4. 2012 Mint Set (+4,847 to 268,827)
  5. 2012 Silver Proof Set (+4,490 to 271,240)
  6. 2012 Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set (+1,471 to 192,645)
  7. 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set (+1,025 to 107,402)
  8. 2012-S Chaco Culture Quarters 40-coin Roll (+930 to 7,037)
  9. 2012 Uncirculated Gold Eagles (+741 to 4,779)
  10. Grover Cleveland Presidential (P) $1 Coin Rolls (+695 to 45,024)

Overall, 52 products outperformed their previous weekly numbers compared to 62 in the last report.

Upcoming Numismatic Products

Firmer sales next week are expected as a result of Tuesday’s launch of the Coin & Currency Set coupled with Thursday’s scheduled releases of the 2012-W Proof American Platinum Eagle and numismatic bags and rolls of 2012-S Acadia National Park Quarters from San Francisco.
