2012 Commemorative Coins and September 11 National Medals

Sales improved for most 2012 Commemorative Coins and the September 11 National Medals

Several U.S. Mint commemorative coins and the September 11 National Medals logged higher sales as their ordering deadline approached, but there was not a lot of excitement elsewhere in the Mint’s weekly sales report. Most collectors are already looking at 2012 through the rear-view mirror.

Sales ended Monday, Dec. 17, for the 2012-dated commemorative coins and for the 2011-dated September 11 National Medals. The following table offers what could be their final reported sales figures. Products shown in blue are those that posted week-over-week improvements.

Debut Sales for Harrison Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set

Debut sales reached 1,111 for the Benjamin and Caroline Harrison Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set. The sales figure accounts for orders between its release on Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012 and Monday, Dec. 17.

The amount marks an improvement over the 1,025 start for the Arthur $1 and Paul Medal Set released in October. The U.S. Mint is yet to report how well the first term Grover and Frances Cleveland set is doing, having launched back on Nov. 20. The second term Grover and Frances Cleveland set debuted today at noon.

Overall, Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Sets since 2011 have struggled to reach individual sales of 6,500.

As for U.S. Mint top weekly sellers, the list is mostly limited to major annual sets.

Thirty-seven numismatic products registered better week-over-week sales compared to the 74 noted in the last U.S. Mint sales report.

Two products stepped backwards. The proof Alice Paul and the Suffrage Movement Gold Coins dropped 65 to 2,737 and the Making American History Coin and Currency Se fell 1,327 to 52,318. The U.S. Mint does not offer specifics for such decrements. It is assumed they come from order cancellations, returns or accounting corrections.

The mintage for the 2012 SSB $5 unc didn’t rise too much the last week. As a result it is the 2nd lowest minted $5 uncirculated gold coin by 2. The 2001 Capital Visitor coin had a reported mintage of 6761. I’m not seeing many raw ones on Ebay.

steve1942 December 21, 2012 at 12:32 pm

The Mint no longer is selling the Commemoratives. It will be interesting to see the final sales count of the SSB Uncirculated. As Homer mentioned, the latest report shows that it had sold 2 less than the 2001 Capitol Visitor. On Ebay, someone is asking $3,500+ for that coin in MS70. I’m glad I have mine, although it’s raw. I hate to think I must sent to NGC to increase it’s value. Funny thing is, I purchased it during the Early Releases time frame. It’s already lost value because I didn’t take advantage of having the label reflect that. Yet, we all keep saying, collect the coin, not the slab. I guess the real coin collectors pay less for their hobby.

Homer December 21, 2012 at 1:35 pm

If everyone gets them graded, they might become rare in raw form someday. I sent coins in one time and got 3 -70’s and 2-69’s and the coins looked exactly the same to me. 69’s in general sell for around raw prices. Those were the last ones I sent in. You could have just as easily got a 69. I think grading companies have a purpose. I just don’t think it is modern commems unless there is a concern about fakes. Otherwise it is just splitting hairs. Grading is subjective, so one person’s 69 is another person’s 70 and vice versa. My view probably isn’t that popular right now based on the number that get graded. My concern with grading companies is that you could have corruption based on the amount of money involved. Grading companies have a financial incentive to give higher grades to larger customers. I don’t know that they do that. There just isn’t anything to stop them from doing it since they have the ultimate say so. With the 25th anniversary sets, you had to send them unopened. How do you even know if you got the same coins back?

legend December 21, 2012 at 10:49 pm

With the SSB Proof coin it will not matter whether it is graded. It is truly a scarce coin in Unc as well. These coins will appreciate in large chunks, and even raw coins will do exceedingly well. It does feel like a few too many choices, but now it feels like some of the lesser mintage coins, namely the Spouse coins, are going to have one stellar price rise when we get to Mrs Kennedy. The mint is doing some truly superior work on the ATB quarters, so they will eventually pull in awards, so long as they put jewels in the eyes of the wildlife like Mongolia did. LOL
The voters for the coin of the year are kind of like the Grammy voters, who took 30 years to give Steely Dan their due. Maybe they are related.

The gold commemoratives have never been in great demand. I have bought and sold a number of them over the years but never made much. Lost money on a few. The number of people that collect the gold commem’s are the problem. A lot of collectors do not even know that they exist so the low issue numbers do not matter much.

RonnieBGood December 28, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Hello Collectors, Investors and Hobbyists,
I do not have as much time lately as I have had in the past to post here but I hope to share a bit of knowledge from time to time.

I have seen posts about raw vs. graded coins and that a raw coin could be rarer (then more valuable) than graded. While in fact that can become the case if many are graded the problem then becomes the value of the coin. A raw coin grade is then truly in the eye of the beholder. When a new issue from the Mint it could grade in a range from Mint State 67(Unc) to MS 70. The issue is that most collectors are not qualified to make a grade call on their own. The pricing difference from a 67 to a 70 makes a rather large difference on a low mintage issue and a 70 is always the most valuable no matter the number struck.

How does a collector protect his/her self with many transactions occurring on-line? How do you address counterfeiting? This is where Grading Companies come in. The two that have risen to the top are PCGS and NGC. They exist and are given respect in the collecting industry because of their skill at grading (3 graders are used for each coin and the lowest grade of the 3 is given to the coin with NGC). They also have a very good guarantee to back this up. Many graders have failed and the reasons are obvious.

There are many willing to sell you a coin for much more than it is worth or give you much less than your coin is worth. I have had many come to me with coins purchased from a TV show, a coin show, auction or on-line only to see their face when I tell them the value of their coin. Buying a raw coin can be a gamble. Protect yourself.

jim December 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

It would be beneficial to the coin owners and the graders if the graders were required to justify why a coin rated one number over another. Point to the flaw or identify where and therefore why the coin is just missing the next higher score. This would make the scoring more objective and force the graders to be more open.
