US Mint Sales: Gold Coins Pop, Fort McHenry Sets Debut

Gold Coins and Fort McHenry Quarters Three-Coin Set

Demand picked up for gold coins and debut sales are in for Fort McHenry Quarters Three-Coin Sets

A drop in prices followed by an immediate two-day run up in precious metals boosted sales of United States Mint platinum and gold coins.

On top of that, the release of Fort McHenry Quarters Three-Coin Sets sparked sales across a range of America the Beautiful Quarter products.

Last Wednesday, Sept. 18, the U.S. Mint cut prices on its numismatic platinum and gold coins to better align with lower platinum and gold values. Two hours later, the metals soared when investors learned the Fed would not taper its stimulus. Momentum tracked to Mint products with weekly sales of:

  • 2013 Proof American Gold Eagle products up 630 compared to the previous 411
  • 2013 Uncirculated American Gold Eagles up 84 versus 71
  • 2013 Proof American Gold Buffalo coins up 595 against 344
  • 2012 First Spouse Gold Coins up 60 compared to 47
  • 2012-2013 Proof American Platinum Eagles up 164 versus 100

Debut Sales of Fort McHenry Quarters Three-Coin Sets

Sales kicked off Thursday, Sept. 19, for 2013 Fort McHenry Quarters Three-Coin Sets. These sets include one uncirculated quarter from the Philadelphia Mint, one uncirculated quarter from the Denver Mint and one proof quarter from the San Francisco Mint. By Sunday, Sept. 22, sales clocked in at 9,398. That is a tad lower than the start for prior releases this year. For a quick comparison, here are debut and current sales figures for all three-coin sets:

Big jump in sales for the 2013 W burnished Uncirculated Silver American Eagle compared to previous weeks. Will it be a lower mintage year than last year?

Keith September 29, 2013 at 9:03 pm

Hi Joe that is a good question but very hard to answer. I can only give you my opinion for an answer. If sales continue to be 6,000+ a week for the rest of the year or for as long as they sell them then it will end up being a higher mintage than 2012. The UNC dollar set has not been released yet so that will drive the number higher. The number will never be as high as the bullion version but only time will tell on the final mint number for the burnished coin.

Joe October 1, 2013 at 12:52 pm

Thanks Keith for the answer. I forgot about the unc dollar sets that have not been out yet. That could make them a higher mintage than last years with or without the dollar sets. You’re probably right. I’m hoping for the 2013 W Uncirculated to be a lower mintage than the 2012 W. uncirculated so they will be more collectible than last years.

Keith October 1, 2013 at 6:01 pm

Yes I do as well, I still have mine in the shipping box to keep them qualified as First Strike coins per PCGS standards. The UNC set will probably send the mintage higher than last year because of the added premium to last years graded UNC set because of the low amount of sets made. All we can do is wait and hope the numbers stay low.
