Taft Presidential Dollar Products

New Taft Presidential dollars and lower prices on silver coins sparked sales

Newly released Taft $1 coins and lower prices on silver products made some excitement out of what would have been a typical, lazy summer sales week for the United States Mint.

Last Thursday, July 11, the U.S. Mint reduced prices on nine silver products. Every one of them logged significantly higher weekly sales.
