US Mint Sales: Numismatic Gold and Silver Coins Surge

by Mike Unser on August 21, 2013 · 0 comments

2013 Presidential $1 Four-Coin Sets

2013 Presidential $1 Four-Coin Sets appeared on the sales charts this week but it was U.S. Mint gold and silver coins that stole the show

Sharp gains in precious metals translated into surging numismatic sales of United States Mint coins struck in gold and silver.

American Silver Eagles and ATB 5 oz silver coins racked up sales of 22,237 compared to 13,432 previously. Every product option improved within the grouping, led by an almost doubling week-over-week gain in proof Silver Eagles which were most sought by collectors.
