US Mint Sales: Eagles, Gold Coins Improve

by Mike Unser on February 14, 2013 · 0 comments

Proof Gold Eagle

Sales of American Eagles, gold and silver, improved

Without new products from the U.S. Mint to excite buying, unit sales retreated for the most part. Exceptions included American Eagles, new and old.

Compared to its previous 21,592 weekly increase, the 2013-W Proof Silver Eagle advanced 23,506 during its second full week of sales. With that gain, it hurdled the 300,000 level and reclaimed the Mint’s top-selling spot — a place it had lost after White Mountain quarters debuted.

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

  1. 2013-W Proof Silver Eagles (+23,506 to 303,958)
  2. 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set (+3,237 to 67,769)
  3. 2012 Uncirculated Silver Eagles (+1,933 to 194,135)
  4. 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set (+887 to 54,827)
  5. 2012 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set (+756 to 42,328)
  6. 2013-P,D&S White Mountain Quarters Three-Roll Set (+716 to 4,101)
  7. 2013-S White Mountain Quarter Roll (+632 to 4,541)
  8. 2013 Birth Set (+617 to 7,078)
  9. 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set (+530 to 139,458)
  10. 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set (+522 to 144,832)

As discussed earlier this week, 2012-W Proof Gold Eagles are gone. The four-coin set was the last Gold Eagle product available before selling out. Its number increased 330 versus the prior 229 for a total of 8,957. The gain was low enough whereas each of the four-sized 2012 Proof Gold Eagles end with the scarcest mintages of all-time. This year’s 2013 Proof Gold Eagles are scheduled to debut in April.

Currently, the only other numismatic gold coins offered by the U.S. Mint are last year’s eight First Spouse Gold Coins. Their weekly sales as a group advanced 254 versus 113 previously.

Finally, sales ended on Jan. 28 for the 2012 Mint Set. The U.S. Mint has stopped adding to its total so its unaudited final sales figure is 392,224. That is the lowest since the uncirculated Mint Set from 1962.
