A CoinNews photo of a 2018 Proof Set. The set was the Mint’s most popular weekly seller for a second straight time.

The U.S. Mint’s 2018 Proof Set was its best seller for a second week in a row. The set advanced by 5,903 units in this round after jumping by 8,798 units previously.

Released on March 6, the 10-coin proof set now has a four-month total of 275,898 — a figure other world mints would love to see for one of their core annual sets.

Still, demand has retreated for these sets in recent years. The latest one will need to move quicker to catch last year’s set. The 2017 Proof Set reached 323,401 units through its first four months of sales. It’s still available, rising by 214 units from a week earlier for a new total of 558,952 sets. The set from 2016 ended with sales of 595,184.
