2015-W $5 Marshals Gold Proof Coin

Standalone sales of US Marshals gold coins picked up from a week earlier

Coins honoring the 225th anniversary of the US Marshals Service continue to perform well with solid gains during their second full week of release.

Collectors scooped up another 26,713 coins, according to United States Mint reporting, taking their 18-day total to 195,644 coins for a revenue pull of more than $15 million.

It took more than 9 months for the 2013 5-Star Generals commemorative coins to reach $17.3 million. That said, sales are far from scoring near the Mint’s first curved-shaped coins, the commemorative 2014 Baseball coins.

Individually sold Marshals gold coins moved 401 backward in the prior report. This week’s stats have them forward by 592. Price decreases on Feb. 11 offered some support.

Here are the 18-day sales splits across all US Marshals Service coin products:

Every US Marshals coin has remained on "Back Order." The U.S. Mint is accepting orders for them but none are in stock so buyers have to wait 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).

I bought the silver coins and the UNC half dollar on the first day of release. Lucky me, they were delivered within a week. I was truly impressed with the design of this silver dollar in both varieties. But I really wanted one of the gold coins, however they were out of my budget.

On Saturday I received my tax refund and back-ordered a gold UNC US Marshal coin. The Mint states expects it to ship around May 5th.

The 3 coin set has returned to “back order” and can be ordered.
