US Mint Sales: Shawnee Quarters, Twain $1s and Nixon $1s Debut

by Mike Unser on February 10, 2016 · 10 comments

Rolls, Bags and Boxes of Richard M. Nixon Presidential $1 Coins

Early sales of the new Nixon dollars reached 2,856,925

The United States Mint last week introduced quarters commemorating Shawnee National Forest in Illinois, clad dollars depicting former President Richard M. Nixon, and silver dollars commemorating American author and humorist Mark Twain.

With the more than one dozen new product options available, the Mint saw an upswing in sales for both new and older collectibles.

Debut Sales of 2016 Richard M. Nixon Presidential $1 Coins

Dollars featuring Nixon, the 37th President of the United States, moved pretty much at the same pace out of the sales gate as those for the previous $1 coin featuring Lyndon B. Johnson.

Six products with Nixon dollars went on sale last Wednesday, Feb. 3. Available options include rolls, bags and boxes of circulating-quality coins struck in Philadelphia and Denver with mint marks of ‘P’ and ‘D’. A combined 2,856,925 sold, which is only 400 less than the debut of 2015 LBJ dollars.

Before then, the 2015 JFK dollars opened with sales of nearly 1.6 million and the 2015 Ike dollars posted starting sales of over 2.86 million, the quickest pace since the U.S. Mint stopped offering 500-coin boxes of dollars in 2013.

U.S. Mint products with circulating-quality Shawnee quarters launched a week ago Monday, Feb. 1. Product options include rolls and bags of quarters struck in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco with mint marks of ‘P’, ‘D’ and ‘S’.

The number of quarters sold during the opening seven days tallied to 2,131,840, down 8.2% from the previous 2015-dated quarter commemorating Saratoga National Historical Park in New York. It scored early sales of 2,323,000, the best sales start in the America the Beautiful Quarter series since the first 2013-dated design celebrating White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire.

For the $5 gold coins in proof and uncirculated, they logged weekly gains of 1,037 and 507 for new sales splits of 8,990 and 4,268. They combine to 13,258 coins for 13.3% of their maximum 100,000.

Thank you, Mike, for those numbers.

jim February 11, 2016 at 2:01 pm

Mike –
Just updating my own numbers I noticed your counts for 2013 proof platinum eagle show 5,746 old, 5,745 latest, no change.
I don’t remember how to find these numbers at the mint’s web site

Seth Riesling February 11, 2016 at 3:52 pm

Mike Unser & jim –

The 2016 official “Red Book” – A Guide Book of United States Coins – 69th edition lists the 2013-W Proof 1-ounce platinum American Eagle with a mintage of 5,763. But their numbers are based on old info sometimes due to publication deadlines for printing the annual book. Of course the U.S. Mint usually takes about 2 years to issue final official audited mintage/sales figures. Why it takes them that long to account for every coin & set sold in any given year is a big mystery. They should be required to finish a final audit within six months tops. They do a quarterly inventory at their fulfillment center warehouse in Memphis & even put off expedited shipping option during about a week while they do it, so I don’t know why they can’t get their accounting act together!
By the way, the 2014-W $5 National Baseball Hall of fame gold coins had a limit by law of 50,000 coins, but the Mint’s figures & the Red Book list a total of 50,102 sold, & it has been that way practically since they sold out on first day of issue! If this number is correct, the U.S. Mint once again broke Federal public law that called for no more than 50,000 gold coins across all options.

By the way the Mint issued its annual report for Congress recently & U.S. Mint Principal Deputy Director Matthew Rhett Jeppson said the Mint’s customer base has dropped off noticeably & he basically doesn’t know why! The 1.5 million customers on their mailing list is quickly dwindling down. Mr. Jeppson needs to take a big hint at that statistical fact starring him in the face.

@Seth Riesling

From the Mint’s 2015 Annual Report:
“As we continue our efforts to retain current customers and reach new audiences, we have to listen to the people who buy our products. That means making it easier for our customers to shop however, wherever, and whenever they want. To do that, we launched a new e-commerce site last year, which has made the shopping experience faster, simpler, and more reliable. ”

So they want to continue their efforts to retain current customers and reach new audiences and listen to those who buy their products and the ONLY thing needed is to make it easier for the people to shop? Amazing. Quite a plan they got there …….. totally one dimensional and delusional IMO. Of course the “people” he is referring to could just be the big buyers/dealers and AP’s, and not collectors.

This guy has been there for a while and it doesn’t take rocket science to start getting familiar with the job, unless he doesn’t care or is incapable of doing the job …or both.

Way past time for the feds to start knocking on the Mint’s doors, I wonder why it hasn’t been done already. Imagine stuff like a dime struck on a nail getting through to auction, how did it get off the Mint’s premises? And how many people were involved? Seems this is okay with the Mint because I haven;t read anything about their reaction to this sale …. Maybe the Mint attitude is if it has left their premises or is sold to a customer (speaking of their regular products), it doesn’t care anymore

Seth Riesling February 11, 2016 at 7:49 pm

Tinto –

You make some great points! When I originally went over the U.S. Mint’s Annual Report for 2015 released recently, I laughed out loud at U.S. Mint Principal Deputy Director Matthew Rhett Jeppson’s totally clueless comments! He actually said in a public ANA coin show Q&A open session last year responding to a question from a collector in the audience worried about U.S. Mint products being misrepresented (fraud) by t.v. coin show dealers – “I can’t worry about what happens to our coin products once they leave the Mint.” That is his irresponsible, clueless attitude! He truly thinks that he knows the numismatic marketplace in just a relatively short time on the job (he is NOT a numismatist!) when it takes at least a minimum of 10 years IMHO to get exposed to all aspects of the numismatic hobby/industry/science (a $5 billion a year business just in USA each year not including foreign coins, precious metals ingots/bars/rounds rounds & not including U.S. Mint sales totals). Jeppson has a lot of explaining to do for sure for losing so many Mint customers since he came onboard the ship he is now sinking quickly, but Congress is busy trying to turn the economy around & their constitutional oversight of the Mint is the last thing on their minds! I hope to G-D Jeppson is never confirmed as U.S. Mint Director! Write, call & e-mail your elected officials in Washington D.C. CoinNews readers – it really can make a difference & it doesn’t take too much time. If we are going to complain then we need to be a part of the solution! Thanks all.

Happy collecting!

Coins are an investment (that is also enjoyable), and as such, investments are supposed to rise in value or be abandoned.
This is something the US Mint has not seemed to care about since 2007 AD, what with all their sabotaging of good products inherently valuable, ie killing the 1st Spouse line with 1 per hh limit, Killing ATB 5 oz line by raising mintages, killing the platinum line by raising mintages and prices (significantly), killing the AE 2-coin and Reverse Proof Buffaloes with unlimited mintage windows, killing the Kennedy-related coins with insanely high mintages…

Why do people buy US Mint coins? As an investment, which they also enjoy collecting, but no one will collect anymore if the product loses value after purchase or stays about the same.

Value is produced via rarity, just like why coins from the 1790s are worth so much, because they didn’t make many. But everyone wants them because they keep going up in value because o low mintages.

If the MINT would adopt a strict 1st come, 1st serve policy for ALL products and a household limit of at least 5 every time and a max mintage of 50K for gold coins and 150K for silver, they would sellout every product they produce and people will keep coming back for more annually.

Deviation from the above plan of proven success (every product they have done that with has increased in value (20th and 25th anniversary AE, baseball coins)) is why they have lost 100s of 1000s of customers since 2007 (that and raising the price of their collectibles by about 50% to 200% over a few years’ time with zero reason beyond greed (a 5 or 10 % increase at most would have been accepted).

Audits are typically done on an annual basis for tax reasons
Results of surveys submitted to the public should be published so we’re all talking to the same numbers
US Mint Principal Deputy Directors are bureaucrats not intended to run the US Mint and take responsibility but are there just to keep it going until a real Director is approved by Congress. Again, blame Congress for sitting on their duffs and not acting on Presidential appointments

JTheLionofJ,
You are absolutely on point!

Very good points being made here.

What the Mint staff have completely missed are purchases that are made for aftermarket sales. There are a number collectors that also purchase additional coins to sell at some point in the aftermarket. These are the customers and additional sales that the mint are losing. When lower mintages are quickly sold out to whom did the Mint think were making these purchases. Yes, there are just the collectors but the additional are going to the collector / dealers. I am not talking about the corrupted TV coin shows. I am talking about the true collector base.

To the US Mint staff, for the future of our hobby, please listen to our commentary.

RonnieBGood –

Your comments are very insightful, concise & relevant to the current situation of a lack of reasonable U.S. Mint’s sales strategy. You said it here better than I could. Please forward your comments outlined here to the Mint’s Office of Communications because from the comments of many CoinNews readers on this coin blog website, you sum up the thoughts of many of us very well. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
