US Mint Image 2018-S Proof American Silver Eagle

U.S. Mint image of the 2018-S Proof American Silver Eagle. It sales accumulated to 77,467 coins in six days.

Highlights from this week’s U.S. Mint sales report include first showings of the 2018-S Proof American Silver Eagle and the George Washington and John Adams Presidential Silver Medals.

The San Francisco Mint’s proof Silver Eagle led the charge. Released a week ago Tuesday, Aug. 14, the collectible logged first-day sales of 52,494 coins and reached 77,467 coins by Sunday, Aug. 19.

The opening is solid, certainly, but well below the debut of this year’s regular proof Silver Eagle from the West Point Mint. Back in January, it posted a four-day sales start of 243,411 coins. As is usually the case, the "W" Silver Eagle was also one of the Mint’s top performing products of the week — though down a few spots and behind new releases, rising this time by 2,758 to 300,919 coins.

Another San Francisco Mint product ranked second in strength for the week. The no longer available 2018 Silver Reverse Proof Set moved up by 15,703 to 189,325.

The third most popular product of the week was the 2018 Proof Set, rising 13,825 to 316,342. The set is seeing a bit extra love, supported by a marketing postcard sent to some collectors.

Ranking fourth and fifth were the two new Presidential Silver Medals. Released last Thursday, Aug. 16, first-day totals for the pair came in at 5,466 for the George Washington medal and 4,506 for the John Adams medal. They advanced through Sunday to 7,386 and 6,253.

Lastly, in highlights, the climb continued for World War I Centennial 2018 Silver Medals following their sales reopening July 31. Gains were lower in this round at a combined 880 pieces compared to the last reported increase of 4,910 pieces. They now total 60,839.
