US Mint sales figures as of Sunday show three-coin sets of proof US Marshals Commemoratives Coins at 12,041, leaving 2,959 for sale

United States Mint sales of U.S. Marshals commemorative products moved up by 37,272 coins during their first full week of availability, lifting their 11-day total to 168,931 coins or $13,473,508.

US Marshals coins in proof quality are outselling the uncirculated ones by three-to-one. This ratio is higher than typical, helped by the three-coin set which only includes proofs. Less than 3,000 of those now remain.

It’s too early in the their sales cycle to make too much out of all these numbers. Yet, it’s clear that the commemoratives are performing well. They’re not selling at the pace of last year’s curved Baseball coins but they’re about to blow past totals of the 2013 5-Star Generals coins. That is, if negative turns are abated. In the table below, notice the weekly declines in the individually sold gold coins.

*There’s a good chance that the U.S. Mint will reduce gold coin prices.

Currently, all US Marshals coins are on "Back Order." The U.S. Mint is accepting orders for them but none are in stock so buyers have to wait longer to get them in hand. Orders may be placed online from this U.S. Mint page, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
