Sales of U.S. Marshals Service commemorative products advanced by 7,368 coins during their fourth full week of release, the latest United States Mint sales figures show.
Their 32-day total hit 217,495 coins for a revenue haul of more than $16.5 million. Keeping to typical commemorative trends, fewer coins are selling as the date from their release lengthens. A sales bottom should form soon. Here’s a breakdown of weekly sales increases since the coins launched on Jan. 29:

U.S. Marshals commemorative coins in collector proof finish are still outselling the uncirculated ones by three-to-one. Proof coins always outperform uncirculated coins, but this ratio is higher than usual. It’s supported by the three-coin set which only has proofs. Only 435 of those sets remain.
