US Mint Sales: Uncirculated Quarters and Explore and Discover Sets Debut

by Mike Unser on April 3, 2019 · 3 comments

The United States opened sales last week of two collector products — an annually issued set of ten uncirculated quarters and a collector’s set for kids with three proof coins, three uncirculated coins, a coin blank, a magnifying glass, an activity book, and a coin folder.

Released March 26 for $13.95, sales for the set of uncirculated quarters reached 16,218 in seven days. That’s one of the best starts in recent years.

Last year’s set logged four-day opening sales 14,502 and the one from 2017 registered sales of 14,230 in seven days. Going further back, the 2016-dated set started with 14,250; the set from 2015 kicked off with 12,593; and the 2014-dated set opened with sales of 12,085.

The set for kids, the second of three youth-oriented products from the U.S. Mint this year, launched on March 28 for $19.95. It opened with four-day sales of 8,468 units.

This set is most comparable to the Mint’s Coin Discovery Set from 2014. It posted four-day sales of 3,025 units. Still available for $24.95, it’s now at 11,738.

Mike Unser,
Thank you for the update.
Interesting the 5 oz Apollo sales are now 397 fewer compared to the sales at 1/27 (60489) and 3508 lower from the 2/3 report (63598).
At least, finally received a status from Mint that mine should come by mid May. Only took over 2 months after order to get a status and may yet get 4 months after ordering.
Wonder if they decided they better provide some type of update before more orders are cancelled?.
Also saw if you order today you might get in August instead of October.
Guess many of us (including Mint personnel) were wrong that the AU and the 5 oz coins would sell out.

Did any of you catch the article in coin world or read your coin news email from the mint? The mint is making 2 mil of each of the 5 2019 quarters at West Point for circulation and putting them in the P&D coins for use by the banks all over the country. Good Luck finding those 5 in your pocket change. And they do have the W mintmark.

Don’t let the number fool you, if you look back the mintage of 2017 S ATB quarter (BU) are less than 1 million minted, is it much more rare?
