CoinNews photo of a 2018-W Proof Silver Eagle. The coin’s sales logged a weekly loss of 5,968 for a new total of 235,897

A number of U.S. Mint collectibles stepped back in sales last week. Altogether, 32 products saw their numbers trimmed compared to 15 products in the previous week.

About half of them decreased gently. The other half stood out because of either:

  • their depth of decline — like the 5,968 drop of the 2018 Proof Silver Eagle,
  • their youth on the market — like the 859 reduction in WWI silver medals featuring the Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Air Service, or
  • their status as already mintage low coins– like the 123 fall in products featuring the 2017 Boys Town Commemorative Coins.

In looking closer at the World War I Centennial products, the silver dollars rose by a combined 234 coins while the medals logged a net loss of 681 (only the Army medal advanced). This table shows their new totals:

I’m just speculating here, but is it possible that the U.S. Mint’s silver coin sales might increase appreciably if the Mint began to follow its own published original guidelines of promising to adjust its silver prices to at least come close to conforming to the current market value of the metal? Instead, the Mint has in fact been adhering to the practice of actually raising prices on silver coins and medals even as the melt value of silver has steadily declined over the past couple of months. To compound the already vexing disparity of this pricing scheme, it is also quite clear and painfully obvious that the Mint’s over-melt-value surcharge for silver products is at its base, at least proportionately so, roughly twice that which it exacts for its sales of gold products, thus inevitably penalizing the silver collector while simultaneously, intentionally so or otherwise, passing the financial benefit of this discrepancy along to the gold buyer.

Seth Riesling February 8, 2018 at 11:45 pm

Old Collector –

You must have read my post here the other day on this same subject. You got it right! That is exactly what the U.S. Mint has been doing for years! They are engaged in deceptive trade practices with their silver coin & medal products due to no pricing grid for silver products. And since they are a 100% U.S. Government monopoly, nothing happens unless Congress under their Constitutional control of all coinage matters tells the Mint to make this situation fair for all customers.

Seth Riesling –
While I unfortunately missed your recent post on this subject, we are clearly of one mind when it comes to feeling the need to castigate the Mint for its ridiculously unfair and patently underhanded practices regarding silver pricing. That being said, I wouldn’t suggest holding our breath waiting for the Congress to take the Mint to task regarding this issue, since if the powers that be cared at all about this type of governmental agency misbehavior they would already have taken action long ago. It’s my belief that while we are clearly free to grouse all we want about the aforementioned shenanigans, in the long run all of our complaints and protests will amount to nothing of note as far as any changes taking place in the Mint’s silver pricing policies. As the old saying goes, all of our efforts in this particular arena will, when combined with a couple of bucks, get us a cup of (watered down?) coffee.

Cincinnatus February 9, 2018 at 9:35 am

The commemorative sales are anemic at best. Bad designs and extremely over priced coins aren’t going to help. They are charging 3 times the spot price for a coin that in the secondary market will be considered bullion.

The military coins always do well and I was shocked the CCAC and CFA actually approved the WWI design.

For the around the same price of the Uncir. and Proof coins – I can get a nice 1919-D MS-63 Lincoln cent. Modern coins – for the most part are not worth it.

Chas Barber February 9, 2018 at 1:03 pm

The Mint is out of touch on silver pricing, raising it as it remains rangebound @ 16-17.75 for a couple YEARS! The designs are awful this year, the WW1 coin is odd, eyes close, left handed charge, with the artist’s own nose (!)……..whatever The Breast Cancer is a great idea, but who is the target audience, collectors or cancer survivors, etc. As with the Lions Club, BT, & other ‘charity’ issues the leg$ for the issue may be wobbly @ best inthe long run.

Tinto February 9, 2018 at 1:50 pm

With the Mint merrily messing up the regular collector for years, is it any wonder their sales are down .. the big buyers are probably qualified to buy a lot of the “numismatic” Mint stuff at a discount so they might not pay attention to the content of silver .. only that they can foist it ultimately on the regular collector who might not have a clue about the Mint not upping the silver content .. but sooner or later at least some will know and they will cut off their Mint purchases in protest ..

Old Collector February 9, 2018 at 1:58 pm

Tinto –
You hit the proverbial nail right on the head. Just wait a couple of years and this coin will – as many others like it have over the years – make a dramatically splashy reappearance on HSN or some other such ludicrous coin show ripoff spot as a “certified rarity”, and at a healthy premium over its current Mint price. And so it goes.

chuck February 9, 2018 at 4:26 pm

Agree about silver. The mint must not consider silver to be a precious metal (just the prices they charge are precious).
Also, if you look at their “Numismatic Precious Metal Products: Sales” the most current year they list is 2012. Perhaps, they are using a silver price from “back in the day” too when silver was more than twice its current price. Would the IRS let us wait over 5 years to update (file) our taxes?

Old Collector February 9, 2018 at 4:36 pm

chuck –
I wonder, Chuck, if they are indeed actually underhanded, totally incompetent, simply ignorant or just plain old lazy there? It would be interesting to find out!

Mouse February 9, 2018 at 4:50 pm

As a Canadian and avid numismatist / bullion stacker, I am no stranger to inflated premiums on proof coins. My Royal Canadian Mint has had inflated premiums on proof coins for years. As a result, I have shifted my focus to purchasing US mint products (numismatic and bullion) as well as international mint products.

When I factor in any conversion rate from the US to Canadian dollar, I’m still getting a deal. I will always have love for my mint, but at the end of the day, competition in the market is just that. My personal finances / responsibility to provide for my family / and coin collection comes before my loyalty to my mint. If they continue to not follow market trends or cater to their loyal patrons than there sales will continue to drop. The RCM has been losing money for years / the only thing keeping it afloat is their circulating coin and bullion manufacturing departments. Both our mints (US mint / RCM) have a country wide monopoly and I cannot see that ever changing nor should it / we just need a more focused leadership team that truly understands the consumer and produces quality product at a lower / fair price point. Its not about quantity, its about quality and fair pricing for the working class.

Very well said indeed, and it looks like we U.S. citizens aren’t the only ones getting shafted by our National Mint. I suppose this is where the old “misery loves company” dictum kicks in. 🙂
Many thanks for sharing in general and for the expanded enlightenment in particular; every bit of additional knowledge helps!

chuck February 9, 2018 at 5:29 pm

Old Collector,
Likely greed too. What they fail to take into account is they have been “killing off collectors” for years. Their “Golden Goose” will soon be gone but doubt they will lose their job, over that, so just more taxes for us to support them.

Mouse February 9, 2018 at 7:18 pm

Greetings Old Collector and Chuck –

I am in agreement with you both and sadly I am seeing our mints “killing off old collectors”.My family and I are avid numismatists. My father has taught me many valuable lessons along the way about collecting and when to move my focus to other mints and products (numismatic coins vrs bullion coins). Mints seem to be designing a lot of their products to cater to a new and younger market that sadly in my opinion does not exist yet. When modern coins become minted in mass / value of a trinket / my father has taught me to collect pieces of history / north American coins of investment grade and quality. Helps me to remain focused and wait out the poor in the moment decisions from our mints. I am passing down the knowledge to my boy as he will inherit both my parents and my collection to add to his own someday. It is a funny thing as some of the coins in my collection my pop has said “what were you thinking”, and I have said the same to my boy lol. Eye of the beholder, and my boy has lots of time on his side lol

Happy collecting my friends, and always pass down your knowledge.

Old Collector February 9, 2018 at 11:06 pm

chuck,
The problem with government agencies of any sort – and this applies to anything and everything from the military to the department of motor vehicles –
is that they do not answer to nor are they ever at the mercy of the imperatives represented by a profit structure. Taxes, which they see as “free money”, flow their way without impediment, which is why the brutal truth is that these so-called “public” institutions are essentially the most egregious entitlement guzzlers of the nation. The U.S. Mint, being an integral part of this long-standing quasi-socialist system, has no incentive whatsoever to improve upon its handling – or rather mishandling, to be more bluntly honest about it – of the Mint-to-collector relationship, most especially so because its operational expenses are guaranteed to be taken care of by way of the production of circulating currency and its lucrative mass bullion sales. The Mint is the lazy ruling Goliath, and the numismatic supplicant is but a slingshot-deprived, powerless David.

Old Collector February 9, 2018 at 11:09 pm

Mouse,
Thank you for your open, honest and heartfelt share, and trust me, I do feel your pain.

PA in Oregon February 14, 2018 at 1:57 pm

I was a US mint customer for many years, though was very selective about what I would purchase. I have decided to stop buying new US mint products. They have gotten so far inflated above the spot prices and the mint keeps coming out with so many different products, flooding the market. Plus the fact that with rare exceptions of a high demand product with low mintage (which is becoming less and less likely over time), or if the metal prices increase substantially, you wind up with something worth less than what you paid for, even 10-20 years down the road. It overall seems like a poor investment, and doesn’t make sense unless you are collecting mainly for the pleasure of having pretty coins that you enjoy. If it hadn’t been for the rising price of gold over the past 10 years or so, I would have had a substantial net loss over that period of time, since most US Mint coins devalue, in the long run, to just above their spot metal price.

Old Collector February 15, 2018 at 7:21 am

PA in Oregon,
You are right about both aspects of the US Mint situation. Most of the coins – whether individually or in sets – lose value as soon as “you drive them of the lot”, so to speak, but your other statement also applies, to the effect that they are still, in your words, worth acquiring if ” you are collecting mainly for the pleasure of having pretty coins that you enjoy.” As a retiree dependent on Social Security my funds are understandably rather limited, but I still very much enjoy adding the occasional new coin or set to my very modest collection, so the lower end (price-wise) of the Mint’s offerings are “just what the doctor ordered” for me.
