US Mint Sales: $1 Coins Lead; Proof Silver Eagles in Reverse

by Mike Unser on March 5, 2014 · 6 comments

2014 Harding $1 Coin Cover, 2014 Presidential Proof Coins

Top sellers for the U.S. Mint were 2014 Harding $1 Coin Covers and 2014 Presidential $1 Coin Proof Sets

Weekly figures from the United States Mint show that new products with Presidential $1 Coins are doing their job of ringing in sales.

They also show a reversal in sales of the 2014-W Proof Silver Eagle that wiped out more than a week’s worth of previously reported gains.

First, let’s talk about the youngest Mint products and how they’re doing. Most sought after by collectors was the new Warren G. Harding $1 Coin Cover, released as the 29th issue in the American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series. Holding two Harding $1 Coins from the first day of production at the Denver Mint and Philadelphia Mint, opening sales reached 9,588 of the maximum 20,000 units. That is down 315 from the sales start of the previous coin cover featuring Woodrow Wilson dollars.

And in their first full week of availability, 2014 Presidential $1 Coin Proof Sets scored a sales increase of 4,706 to 113,995. Issued on Feb. 18, a set includes a proof of the four 2014 Presidential $1s honoring Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt. These sets were the second most popular U.S. Mint product of the week.

Sales Retreat for 2014-W Proof American Silver Eagles

It’s common for weekly U.S. Mint sales reports to have some products with negative adjustments as a result of returns, cancellations and the like. In fact, this week’s report has 9 products in which their sales totals shifted down. It’s uncommon, however, for a product to fall by several thousand. That’s exactly what happened with the 2014-W Proof Silver Eagle. The U.S. Mint trimmed its sales by 9,420, bringing the total down to 365,188.

As always, below are tables showing the latest sales for U.S. Mint numismatic products. The sales period covers Feb 24 to Mar 2, 2014. Products with an asterisk (*) are no longer available.

Mike Unser March 5, 2014 at 2:19 pm

Boz, sorry about that. The sold out * should not have been there. We removed it.

Charles K. Miller March 6, 2014 at 1:27 pm

When will the 20214 Unc. Silver Eagles come out for retail purchase?

The 2014 American Eagle One Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin is scheduled for release in April for $43.95.

Won’t be around for the 20214 release. lol

Mike U,
Thank you for updating the Mount Rushmore set.
I believe that the 1/4 oz 2013 Proof American Eagle Gold Coins are also sold out.
Thank you
