US Mint Sales: Some 2016 Commemorative Coins Mark Mintage Lows

by Mike Unser on January 4, 2017 · 14 comments

The United States Mint stopped selling 2016-dated commemorative coins last Thursday, Dec. 29. Some of them now rank at or near the bottom of mintage charts.

2016-D Uncirculated National Park Service 100th Anniversary Half Dollar

CoinNews photo of a 2016-D Uncirculated National Park Service 100th Anniversary Half-Dollar. The commemorative coin set a new mintage low.

Sales of the clad 2016-D Uncirculated 50c National Park Service Commemorative Coin moved up 1,687 to 21,335, marking the lowest mintage of its type among modern commemoratives. The clad 2015-D 50c US Marshals Service Uncirculated Coin previously held the title at 30,231.

The gold 2016-W Proof $5 Mark Twain Commemorative Coin also sits at a new low within its category, rising 117 to 13,271, ending below the 15,843 total of the 2013-W Proof 5-Star Generals $5 Gold Coin.

Some final adjustments are likely, and that could push another commemorative coin to the bottom. The 2016-W Uncirculated $5 National Park Service Gold Coin climbed 742 to 5,201. That’s just 27 coins above the mintage low ranking of 5,174 for the 1997-W Uncirculated Jackie Robinson Gold Coin.

RODNEY MOORE January 4, 2017 at 3:55 pm

In this case the low mintage is due to the fact that “nobody wants them”, I.E. there is no demand.
Commemoratives just don’t have any personal appeal to me and I feel like that they make way too many of them. Since they make them for everything under the sun, it devalues them. I’m sure some people will disagree with me, but if they reduced the number of commemoratives made, the money would still get spent on coins and you’d see more demand (from where it shifted) to regular proof and UC issues as well as gold , silver and platinum bullion coins.
Just think what would have happened if they hadn’t of taken the time and trouble to produce these low demand commemorative (that they presumably will have to melt) and focused more on core products. They may have had a suitable 30th anniversary silver Eagle set or something??

Springer January 4, 2017 at 4:51 pm

I always like to see new low mintage sales. If you remember 1997 the stock market was pretty hot, same as now. This was an opportunity to purchase low mintage US Mint coins at low relative gold and silver prices. The 2015 Silver Proof Sets is a new low at 387,460 also, not mentioned above.

Dustyroads January 4, 2017 at 4:54 pm

I don’t think the Mint is making too many commemorative coins, although they could scale it back to one a year, that should keep them more interesting. I think the real issue which has taken the steam right out of commemorative issues are all the numerous other issues the Mint has been releasing. And one other small reason…price of gold, commemoratives used to be way more affordable.
BTW, Has no one noticed the new low for the silver proof set. The 2015 has slipped in as the new king beating out the 2012.

Dwight January 4, 2017 at 5:34 pm

The 1997-W Jackie Robinson Commemorative $5 Uncirculated Gold half eagle had low sales as buyers were more interested in the proof version. Therefore the uncirculated version sold only 5,174 coins. It was only aftermarket, that collectors finally realized that it was the lowest mintage modern gold coin. Thereafter due to its scarcity and demand, their prices rose from their issue price of $205 to $1,000. For PCGS MS70 prices were as high as $4,000.

Ken T January 4, 2017 at 9:03 pm

Even though the 2015 silver proof set is now the key date, I don’t think it will do as well as the 2012 silver proof set. The consumer had over 19 months to purchased the 2015 silver set as opposed to 7 or 8 months for the 2012 silver set. Obviously, the demand just isn’t there. The premiums are at an all-time high (more than double) for these silver proof sets.
The 2015 set will undoubtedly be worth more than the issue price of $53.95.
It looks as though the 2016 silver proof set will have a HIGHER mintage than the 2015 silver proof set as they have already sold over 350,000 with basically the whole year to go.
The 2012 silver proof set will probably go down in price as it now is the second lowest mintage.

Dennis January 4, 2017 at 9:31 pm

In case you hadn’t notice the Clad and Silver Proof sets as well as the Uncirculated set are all no longer available at the US Mint… AND they are the LOWEST MINTAGE SETS since the mid 1950s for the Proofs and Early 1960s for the Uncirculated Set.

one fine dime January 4, 2017 at 9:59 pm

@Rodney Moore –
I think you have proven that there really are very different kinds of US Mint customers out there. Personally, I really appreciate some of the commemorative issues! For instance, I am fine waiting a few years until an issue really resonates with me. I have found some of the modern half eagle commemorative designs to be the most elegant ever produced by the US Mint. Others are truly lackluster. This year, I think both the Mark Twain and National Park Service half eagles were absolutely stellar designs, but I only bought the latter from the mint (my wallet can only stretch so far in a given year).

The price of gold often shuts many collectors out altogether. I think the US Mint goofed big time on the National Park Service silver dollar this year, and many collectors felt neither the silver dollar nor the half dollar designs were worthy of their money. I personally felt the half dollar design was waaaay better suited for the silver dollar. The NPS silver dollar showcased Old Faithful, which I feel is really a horrible feature for a coin (it’s just a big explosion of water). Old Faithful was already on the 1999 commemorative silver dollar for crying out loud! Truly embarrassing to see it again, when so many other features from great National Parks around the country could have been featured. How about giant sequoia trees?! No matter what the US Mint or the National Park Service have to say about it, the Latina Folklórico dancer imagery resonated with an extremely limited number of coin collectors, based on the discussions on coin collecting blogs…but people bought these coins nonetheless. And in general these half dollar commemoratives need to be struck in silver!…make a clad companion version if need be to bring in the kids.

So while sometimes both the obverse and reverse of a commemorative issue will showcase utterly fantastic designs (as this year’s Mark Twain and NPS $5 issues, in my opinion), other times neither will be very good (as this year’s NPS $1, in my opinion). So, similar to another saying, you can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.

Alternatively, I would be bored to death as a collector buying every year’s AGE or ASE. Same obverse AND reverse design every single year, ugh. Too bad the platinum proofs aren’t more modestly priced (e.g., why not offer a companion silver version), as I could see being very motivated to collect these bold reverse designs that alternate annually (if I could afford them).

joera January 5, 2017 at 4:47 am

I think we really won’t know which coins or sets are worth buying right now in the present as far as what are good investments. We can’t see into the future so what are we to do? Buy everything that comes out of the mint? Not all of us can do that. For me right now all I can do is to just buy what I like.

Roxie January 5, 2017 at 8:54 am

Really like the NPS and very surprised how much I like the Mark Twain. The Mint did great job on these commems. But along with some of the other 2016 offers like the beautiful Centennial coins I have used up any 2017 budget , and maybe 2018 lol, for 2016 coins I wanted.

BTW, Mint still hasn’t lowered as of 9am the gold coin prices they increased yesterday. They are all still at original issue price which is not consistent with their pricing schedule….maybe they ‘know’ something about the near term price of gold lol

Dwight January 5, 2017 at 12:21 pm

As of 11:40 AM EST Thursday January 5, 2017, the U.S. Mint website now shows their gold coin price increases.

“… I personally felt the half dollar design was waaaay better suited for the silver dollar. The NPS silver dollar showcased Old Faithful, which I feel is really a horrible feature for a coin (it’s just a big explosion of water). Old Faithful was already on the 1999 commemorative silver dollar for crying out loud! Truly embarrassing to see it again, ..”

I bought the NPS gold unc since I liked the design and the proof NPS half because I wanted to see the bigger NPS logo. As for the NPS dollar, couldn’t agree more it’s a crappy design with that cloud of broccoli and a tiny buffalo which by the way is similar to the buffalo in the NPS logo only it is facing in the opposite direction …

“..Alternatively, I would be bored to death as a collector buying every year’s AGE or ASE. Same obverse AND reverse design every single year, ugh. Too bad the platinum proofs aren’t more modestly priced …”

Truly boring and the Mint just wants to keep it that way .. they can’t even bring themselves to have a one year design change for the 30th Anniversary .. and of course for proof ASE collectors there will always be hole for the year 2009 …
The platinum proofs are nice but yeah very expensive … but the yearly design changes and the limited series attracted me and I gritted my teeth (and wallet) and bought each year of the platinum Preamble series …. now I’m mostly done with the Mint … will probably keep buying the NA $1 C&C sets (yearly design change), the moon landing in 2019 (only one coin since the designs are going to be the same for all denominations) and any Enhance Unc and reverse proof coins so I can have a complete type set ..

@Tinto –
Other than venting about such things here (as we are obviously in agreement about that silver dollar), I struggle to understand what outlets are available for formal feedback on such things. Emails to the US Mint and CCAC?

I really love the NA dollar coins, and I may one day buy a complete proof set, but again certain things just irk me as a collector. For one, it’s the literally microscopic edge lettering. There seems to be plenty of room for the year and mint mark on the obverse…and it had been there from the beginning (before the alternating reverse designs commenced). I think E Pluribus Unum should also be on the face, not the edge. I just don’t think edge lettering on a coin this size was the most creative solution to what they perceived as not enough room. Maybe they had just wanted to do edge lettering and they picked this coin as that opportunity, but it doesn’t seem necessary in the least, and moving the year and mm off the obverse was just down right foolish. Every coin collector wants to see the year and mm front and center!

Also, I can’t for the life of me understand why the silver proof set stops at the half dollar? Meaning, dollars were traditionally minted in silver, so why the heck not make silver Native American dollars to include in the silver proof set!

Maybe I’m nit-picking, but these just seem like such obvious things. Oh well.

Totally agree about the nice big NPS logo on the half dollar reverse. Definitely should have been the obvious choice for the silver dollar!

I don’t think the US Mint cares about any complaints from collectors … so long as their salaries and pensions aren’t affected that is .. I’ve basically given up on them since I completed the Pre-amble series … I was somewhat interested in the 2015 (U)HR gold which the Mint ballyhooed as Ultra High Relief only to ramp it down without any explanation (as far as I know) to a High Relief … same thing with the silver medal version which was supposed to come out the same year but mysteriously gets moved into the next and to drum up excitement they deliberately came out with a low mintage .. and that gold was supposed to be a ONE year thing …

I think the US Mint is doing the barest minimum for the salary they get ..I mean they talked about the tribute coins but they didn’t have to change the designs one bit aside from adding the bullion .. and they just used existing gold blanks which meant that the coins weren’t the same sizes as the originals .. same thing with the 30th Anniversary ASE it took well over half a year to work out the edge etching ??? And then they stuffed it into the Reagan C&C set in order to get more sales and the folder doesn’t even mention why it’s there etc etc

Glad the Mint helped me get away from habitually buying their stuff ….
