US Mint Sales: Numismatic Products Weaken

by Mike Unser on August 7, 2013 · 2 comments

U.S. Mint sales retreated following higher prior weekly gains, markedly in precious metals products. Lacking new releases to excite buying and mixed prices in gold and silver, the summer doldrums amplified for the Mint.

2013 Proof Set Coins in Lenses

The 2013 Proof Set was the U.S. Mint’s most popular numismatic product. Its weekly sales advanced 6,610 for a new total of 482,895

Overall, 63 numismatic products outperformed their prior weekly sales compared to the 80 noted in the last sales report. Buying volume was also slower with 6 products logging sales of 1,000 units or more versus 11 previously. Core annual sets and Silver Eagles were most popular.

  10. 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set (+582 to 95,265)

Expect a pick-up in the next sales report as three new products debut this week. Also, gold numismatic products are more appealing since the Mint cut their prices today by $50 for every ounce of gold content.

The 2012 Making American History coin and currency sets are officially sold out. Making the 2012 S proof Silver Eagle the second lowest proof coin at a mintage of 285,294.

Joe -
It’s about time they sold out (of the 2012 Making American History Coin and Currency Set). It is good to know that at around 285k this will Still be the 2nd lowest mintage in the ASE Proof series.

A plus to one of the worst things the Mint has done to collectors (by making a second offering of the 2012 S Proof ASE in this set).

If you don’t have one get one soon before Demand drives the price of the 2012 “S” proof ASE way up!
