2013 US Mint Commemorative Coins

Commemorative coins showed wide gains in the last U.S. Mint sales report

Signaling a potential unwinding from the summer doldrums, numismatic sales for the United States Mint broadened for a second straight week. Annual sets, commemorative coins, and a good selection of gold coins were among many products scoring stronger weekly sales.

This week’s U.S. Mint sales report included one new product and updates to 200 others. Out of the older products, 114 outperformed their prior weekly sales versus the solid 103 noted in the last report. Ten logged unit sales of more than 1,000 compared to 7 previously.
