US Mint Sales: Gold Coins Jump; Mercury Dime Dips

2016 Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin, Presentation Case

US Mint figures show that there are just over 5,000 more 2016-W Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coins to sell

Most of the U.S. Mint’s gold coins saw markedly higher sales last week, but the most talked about coin, the gold Mercury dime, actually posted a lower overall total.

The new 2016-W Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin had published sales last week of 122,510. After some consolidating, the U.S. Mint pulled that number down by 2,590 to 119,920 coins, or 95.9% of the possible 125,000. The Mint now needs to decide when it will sell the remaining 5,000+ coins.

Elsewhere, some of the week’s better performing gold coins included:

  • four of the five proof 2016-W American Gold Eagle products,
  • the uncirculated 2016-W American Gold Eagle,
  • the proof 2016-W American Gold Buffalo, and
  • about half of the Firsts Spouse Gold Coins.

As an aside, the U.S. Mint earlier today increased prices on all of its collector gold coins.

Tom Jurkowsky of the U.S. Mint has basically stated the Mint doesn’t know yet how it will sell the more than 5,000 gold dimes left over unsold from the first day of issue last month! How about just offering them to anyone who wants one on their website. This is not rocket science! Are they incapable of doing their jobs at Mint headquarters in Washington D.C.! ?

-NumisDudeTX

Joe#2 May 4, 2016 at 8:16 pm

Seth, From what i heard in one of the rooms, These 5000 or so didn’t get 70’s from the (top dogs) And were sent back to the mint? hmmmmmmmmmmm. Could it be???????

Seth Riesling May 4, 2016 at 9:03 pm

Anything is believable at this point! Are they impotent at the Mint without a leader! ? How sad is that for the largest Mint in the world! ? Embarassing.
LOL

-NumisDudeTX

Joe#2 May 4, 2016 at 9:08 pm

You got that right..

Christopher Williams May 4, 2016 at 9:12 pm

I also noticed that sales for the “2016 NPS” coins are sad at best.

Christopher Williams May 4, 2016 at 9:14 pm

HSN and Mike “Sold Out, Limited Edition” Mezack will be on this weekend.

I’m curious how he explains how the majority of his “2016 Mercury Gold Dimes” in ANACS SP70 graded condition are still available.

Seth Riesling May 4, 2016 at 9:41 pm

Christopher Williams-

Lol. I hope Mezack gets stuck with his third-rate ANACS gold dimes at HSN! Even the Mint has more than 5,000 left to sell. They are everywhere! At least he can’t return any now since the 7 day return period is over.

-NumisDudeTX

Steve b May 4, 2016 at 11:33 pm

I hate to ask this question but….. I’ve recd my Mercury gold order. Somewhere I read that the big dealers may have gotten them early or returned after grading so I was cautious in looking at mine. I noticed on one the capsule was ajar and easily opened. On the others there is a little nub on both the top and bottom piece that did not touch. Could it be these were opened, graded less than 70 and returned? Anybody else seeing those?

Christopher Williams May 5, 2016 at 5:55 am

Seth-

I hope he gets stuck with them also.

He’ll be selling them for months. In my opinion, I don’t think he will ever sell all of them.

jim May 5, 2016 at 9:28 am

Seth –
re: impotent – maybe more dormant or in a coma. With Jeppson “in charge” the collector is at the bottom of the mint’s non-existent to-do list. We’re already in May and yet the product schedule has no dates beyond May 18 and 12 TBDs still. This is an abysmal performance, even worse than his predecessor Peterson. The Senior Executive Service program has failed when it comes to managing the US Mint. I hate to see what will happen if his appointment is approved by the Senate.

Seth Riesling May 5, 2016 at 12:24 pm

jim –

Amen! Would it be too much to ask for an actual numismatist to be appointed as U.S. Mint Director?! That would be too logical for our government.

-NumisDudeTX

jim May 5, 2016 at 11:24 pm

Coin collecting was not even a thing back in 1792 so it’s no surprise that the stand-ins we get these days as director are only interested in making billions of pennies for the general public to hoard. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the standard mint collectables are not even minted this year because managing the operations of the mint are too much for these guys to comprehend. As I said before look at the product schedule to see how far ahead they’re thinking. (OK, that’s not fair, I’m sure they’re thinking at least a year ahead, just too lazy to tell the public about it.)

Karl May 6, 2016 at 3:55 am

I ordered 10 dimes 6 minutes after the sale began, but had them shipped economy. It took 12 days to receive very bad condition coins. No doubt at all they’ve been picked through. I’ve learned my lesson! Overnight definitely.

jim May 6, 2016 at 9:27 am

Overnight shipping for a smaller, thinner gold replica of a dime, one of 125,000, that should have been an actual silver dime only with a date of 2016 instead? I think you’re putting more value to this coin than what it’s actually worth.

Chris May 7, 2016 at 9:19 am

Jim, If they stuck with the traditional coinage composition of 90% Gold 10% Copper maybe the dimensions would have been closer to the original dimes. Leave the .999 compositions for the bullion coins. Collector coins should use the traditional composition.

joera May 8, 2016 at 4:48 am

I was hoping more of the Mercury Gold Dimes were sent back before the “7-day return” time. If we were lucky enough, the mintage of the Mercury Gold Dime may have a final mintage that will make it worth owning. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking. But it sure would be great!

jim May 8, 2016 at 7:11 am

Chris –
Tell that to your Congressman. This wasn’t the mint’s decision though with the way things are going at the mint they probably wouldn’t even have thought of a 100th anniversary coin. Look at what they’re doing for the 30th anniversary of the American Eagle coins – nothing for the gold eagle and as little as possible for the silver eagle. And no mention of the 10th anniversary of the gold buffalo at all. Collector support from the mint is almost nonexistent.

Christopher Williams May 8, 2016 at 8:12 am

I DVD’rd HSN and Mike “Sold Out, Limited Out” Edition” last night and he stated that 500 of his “2016 Mercury Gold Dimes” in SP70 (ANACS) have been sold so far.

He didn’t spend a lot of time on it.

He’s not going to waste time on an item that he can’t sell.

Seth Riesling May 8, 2016 at 1:25 pm

Christopher Williams-

That is great news! Ripoff Mezack may have to dump his gold dimes on a wholesale dealer to get rid of them. He also bought almost 2,000 gold dimes for his Cable Shopping Network infomercials in addition to the 1,789 he bought to offer with a different ANACS label for his HSN coin shows. He had to pay $12 each coin to have them graded at a special rate for dealers at ANACS plus major insured shipping fees both ways. He is losing badly at this point. Especially since the Mint still has over 5,000 gold dimes leftover unsold. I think some of his naive show viewers might be catching on to his nasty, unfair Ripoff tactics finally.

Happy collecting Mr. Williams !

-NumisDudeTX

Christopher Williams May 8, 2016 at 1:46 pm

Seth-

Mike “Sold Out, Limited Edition” also claims “He is still waiting for his ten (10) coins from the US Mint.”

It really is great news; especially after last week when he stated “That he expected a total and complete sell-out.”

Love it!!!

Seth Riesling May 8, 2016 at 2:03 pm

Christopher Williams –

LMAO. That is too funny! I fell asleep very early & missed his P.T. Barnum carnival coin show. His orange fake tan face must be red with anger now! What goes around, comes around at some point.

Thanks for keeping me informed on Mezack.

-NumisDudeTX

Christopher Williams May 8, 2016 at 3:47 pm

Seth-

I DVDr’d it, so I got to watch him this morning.

There is no way he will sell all 1,789 to his viewers.

Sturgeon May 10, 2016 at 3:50 pm

My Dime arrived—Placed order 6 minutes after opening bell—Received Dime today 5-10-16 after a couple of calls to the mint—Minor dent on blue box corner–coin looks OK–Not very much detail on this one in my eyes. Maybe it’s the finish–I don’t mind the size. The pics of the quarter and half look kind of washed out for detail also.I was sort of disappointed. Maybe it will grow on me but I am thinking –do I want the Quarter and Half?

Alvaro Rodriguez May 10, 2016 at 5:21 pm

Mike Mezack still has 2/3 of the mercury gold dimes or about 1200 coins still. he was on last night and said that is a mercury dime? rarer than the 1916-D? no its not its a commemorative not even the same size of the original dimes. trying to push his coins out with fake info .He stated ” if you are a mercury dime collector you need this one to complete your set.” Rigthhhhh mike

Christopher Williams May 10, 2016 at 7:21 pm

Alvarado-

That’s one of his favorite lines to say “You need this to complete your set.”

And “I expect a complete and total sell-out.”

Yeah right, Mr. Sold Out, Limited Edition.

Ed May 11, 2016 at 7:40 am

I do not think Mike is returning any coins to the mint. I believe most of the coins he gets are 70 or 69. He will sell the coins he has grated at 69. No problems with the coins I got from the mint. I do agree that Mike’s price at $500 for his third party grades coins repeat third-party grader is way over-the-top. People go buy them for less on eBay. I don’t begrudg Mike for making a big profit on his coins. This is America. But if people want to pay that amount without looking elsewhere well that’s their fault.

James Madison May 11, 2016 at 10:13 am

Why are you guys so upset with Mike? Selling coins is the business he’s in and making a profit is what every one wants.

Seth Riesling May 11, 2016 at 2:26 pm

James Madison-

The problem is Mike gives out misinformation & outright lies about his coins on HSN to a naive audience. Just one question: Would you buy any coin from him at HSN?

-NumisDudeTX

Christopher Williams May 11, 2016 at 4:53 pm

Seth is spot-on.

I, personally, have nothing against anyone making a buck, but his lies and misinformation is what angers us.

One of the segments on my video about Mike “Sold Out, Limited Edition” Mezack was about Mezack claiming (live on-air) that a particular coin he was hawking was “Sold Out” at the US Mint site.

Immediately after, I logged on to the US Mint site and made a purchase. That is just one of many instances.

One of the first words out of Mezack’s mouth tonight is that (paraphrasing) “There are only 500 of his 2016 Mercury Gold Dimes remaining.”

He called it his “closing quantity.”

Only 500 left? Really?

Anyone believe that?

Christopher Williams May 11, 2016 at 6:07 pm

I stand corrected, Mezack stated “Final quantities.”

Seth Riesling May 11, 2016 at 7:27 pm

Christopher Williams-

Lol. “I only have 500 gold Mercury dimes left” says Mezack, but the Mint has more than 6,000 left as of their latest sales report!
I bet his vault is full of them, since he bought at least 3,705 for his HSN & CSN TV coin shows.
Amazing bs from his filthy mouth.

Mike Unser-

Thank you for posting the numbers.

Astonishing: The 2016 Mark Twain Gold Proof Coin has a mintage limit of 100,000 and yet only 11,471 have been sold.

Also, the “2016 NPS Three-Coin Set” is only 2/3 sold.

Christopher Williams – you DVR’d his show?!?!
Face it – you guys just love to pick on somebody and complain.

The dime has never been a hot collector’s item. Somebody convinced Congress to make the anniversary coins in gold – a big mistake, commemorating a small silver coin in gold when it should have been in silver all along. The others may fare better since they’re bigger but they too should have been in silver.

Also, the Twain gold number is sitting in the normal range for for these commemorative coins. The 2012 Star-Spangled Banner coin only sold 18,000+ and the gold proof 5-star general sold less than 5,900; par for the course for unpopular coins. Tells you how many real collectors are out there, not including flippers and dealers.

Jim-

You have something against me DVR’ng his show?

Everyone has their own opinion and we respect each individual’s opinion here.

If you’re a fan of Mezack, more power to you and thank you for posting your opinion.

No, DVR whatever you want as often as you want as much as you want.
I just think this whole conversation has gotten ridiculous to the extreme when you DVR Mezack’s show just so you can pick on him and ridicule him. I’m not a fan of Mezack, I don’t even have cable TV. I’m just trying to point out how far off topic (well I think it’s off topic) this conversation has gotten.

jim –

I respect your opinion, but if you ever watched a HSN coin show with Mezack you might change your opinion. Consumer awareness & protection against numismatic predators is VERY on topic. We all need to share info for beginners especially. Christopher Williams & I are not alone on this subject as many similar posts by others over the years here proves. Sharing info that is correct is caring & part of the hobby we enjoy. I feel it is my responsibility to do so.

Happy collecting jim!

I actually appreciate the comments about the HSN sale. I normally do not collect gold coins and this one only peaked my interest because it was affordable. I had been tracking the sale date of the coin for awhile but once I get to work, things happen and the next thing I knew it was Friday. Since I had long since missed the deadline, I resigned myself to secondary market purchase. As luck would have it, this Mike guy had a show shortly after. I noticed he was selling this coin but when I saw the price, I balked. Because I came here, I was able to ascertain that his prices are actually not good and I should look elsewhere. So to JIM, I found this conversation extremely relevant and on topic since it has to do with the interest of obtaining this coin. It quite possibly saved be a nice chunk of change. Thanks to all who posted.

Jim

You can post your opinion here just like the rest of us. But how can someone give an opinion on something they do not even watch?

I stand with Seth and Christopher Williams because they know what they are talking about because they have seen Mezak’s shows as have I. It sounds like you know about coin collecting and if you would watch Mezack you might have the same opinion as the rest of us. Seth and Christopher do not pick or complain, they just want us to know just how far out Mezack really is.

I wish Mezak would post his opinion. I would like to know on how and why he does what he does. Now that would be fun.

Christopher Williams May 12, 2016 at 6:33 pm

Jim-

That would be fun to get Mezack to comment here.

And “Thank you.”

Seth Riesling May 12, 2016 at 10:03 pm

Robert Wright –

Glad you didn’t get ripped off by Mezack. There are approximately 6,000 coin dealers in the USA & most are above board, but not the television dealers! I have watched their tv coin shows for 11 years & haven’t seen a good, fair price on any coin on tv yet! Shop around and compare is the best advice I can give you. Good Luck Robert.

Happy collecting!
