US Mint Sales: Updated Figures To Dec. 16

by Mike Unser on December 20, 2019 · 9 comments

It’s been awhile since collectors have been able to study numismatic sales reports from the United States Mint. The Mint hasn’t released their weekly stats since Nov. 3, and doesn’t expect to resume their publication until January, according to U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White.

White did provide news editors the opportunity to publish Mint figures for 2019-dated coins as of Dec. 16. This data offers a first look into the performances of several newer products like quarters depicting Idaho’s Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness and dollars honoring innovations from New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.

Of course, there’s also an updated figure for the 2019-S Enhanced Reverse Proof American Silver Eagle which essentially sold out within minutes of its Nov. 14 release.

Limited to 30,000 coins, the Mint continues to reconcile orders for the silver dollar and has its latest total at 29,731.

River of No Return Wilderness

Newer Mint products featuring Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness include quarters in circulating quality (released Nov. 4), an uncirculated five-ounce silver coin (released Nov. 14), and a three-coin set (released Nov. 26.)

Their performances are pretty much on par with other recent releases through similar sales periods. As for their totals, the Mint has sold a combined 2,127,500 in circulating quarters; 12,170 in silver coins; and 12,250 in three-coin sets.

Mike Unser,
Thank you for your reply to my post of 12/19 under “gold and silver finish at more than two-week highs” and this update. Guess we will never know if in fact there were “early sales” of the enhanced $. Thanks for getting news for us.

One of the TV coin guys claims the US mint in 2019 has released an additional quantity of over 183,000 2016-W proof american silver eagles from a hoard found at the West Point mint. Is this just hype to sell another label or has the actuall mintage figures changed for this item?

Sounds like Mike Mezack the “KING” of coin collecting he has a lot of scam ideas to sell. Repeat Repeat Repeat……

They were Proof 2016-W ASE $1 coins, with the 30th anniversary incused edge lettering. They still hadn’t melted as per proper prorocol more than 183,000 of those coins that the Mint still had at its warehouse & they auctioned them off to 4 coin dealers for about $26 each & still made a profit!! The issue price was like $54 each. It shows you how much the Mint screws customers on its silver products! They have a weekly pricing grid for gold, platinum & palladium product prices, but have never had a weekly pricing grid for its silver products. Sad!

I wonder if the US mint has a “small hoard” of 1995-W American silver eagles that could be released in 2020 as a 25th anniversary edition of the 1995 issue, they did not sell out at the time, and the mint could probably ask more than $1000 each.
Or could a collector order several rare 2008-W reverse of 07 burnished American silver eagles from a possible US mint stash. Reminds me of the GSA CC Morgan dollars. How many hoards of past issues does the US mint hold?

ASE Collector –

Now that this unseemly (against proper U.S. Mint protocol) practice has been revealed by Coin World, G-d only knows what coins the squirrels at the Mint (including Mint Director David J. Ryder) have stashed away & unmelted as required! Sad!

Maybe they should impeach the US Mint!! LOL

Lol

I don’t care for Trump’s style (or lack thereof) lol & didn’t vote for him, but, to be fair, I bet if he knew some of the things happening at the Mint behind the scenes, he would take proactive action! I have a feeling he knows nothing about the Mint.

Is there going to be an update to the Dec 16 update that includes the final sales for 2018 coins? Why is the US Mint having so much trouble with the sales information that should be available, in their OPEN BOOKS?
