Weekly & Monthly US Mint Coin Sales Figures

US Mint SiteThe United States Mint is the most active mint in the world, producing billions of circulating coins, tens of millions of bullion coins, and millions of numismatic or collector coins every single year.

CoinNews.net publishes at least one weekly numismatic report of current US Mint Coin Sales Figures, as provided by the US Mint directly. These coin sales figures are indispensable to both coin collectors and investors for determining current demand, coin mintages, and more.

For a daily update on bullion gold and silver coin sales, jump to latest bullion coin news section of this site.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageFewer numismatic products are shouting out with noteworthy gains in the latest US Mint weekly sales report, but bullion coins are screaming along with the record highs in gold and silver prices.

More visible on collector’s radar were the debut of Zachary Taylor Presidential $1 rolls, clad US Mint Uncirculated Sets and US Mint Proof Sets, which are on a three week rise.

In fact, with the exception of the Lincoln and Silver Proof Set, all sets performed at least slightly better when compared to last week’s report.

US bullion coins burned the brightest, as the following highlights describe:

  • 2009 Buffalo Gold Bullion Coins hit 171,500 for the year, just 500 shy from matching all of those sold in 2008 — and the 2009s were released only on Oct. 15. The US Mint sold 26,000 during the last seven days alone, bringing the November total to 55,000.

  • 2009 American Eagle Gold Coins jumped up 49,500 in the same time frame for a November tally of 124,000. The month already ranks as the third best of the year.

  • 2009 American Silver Eagles are 7,000 away from reaching 26 million this year. Numbers soared 986,500 in the last seven days, reaching 2,586,500 for the month. November is ranking as the fourth best in 2009 with several days left to place orders.

2009 American Eagle Gold Bullion CoinGold prices are ablaze. The yellow metal in New York on Monday hit a new all-time record of $1,174 an ounce, rising for a straight seven days.

During that same time frame, demand for 2009 American Gold Eagle bullion coins shot up as well. The latest United States Mint sales figures show another 46,000 of the one-ounce gold coins were sold to Mint authorized purchasers from Monday, Nov. 16, to Monday, Nov. 23.

That overshadows the prior seven day sales of the 31,500 reported on the 17th, the 29,000 cited on the 10th, and the 39,000 reported on the 3rd. November has been a bullish month. 106,500 have left US Mint inventories, bringing the year-to-date total to 1,176,000. By comparison, 860,500 ounces of Gold Eagle bullion coins were sold in all of 2008.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageWith gold prices pounding on new highs, many of the US Mint’s gold coins enjoyed stronger sales last week, although $20 UHRs dropped back and proof Buffalo coins continue to slow.

The newly released Lincoln Presidency cent two-roll sets are visible in this week’s report. The initial numbers are solid. Braille Silver Dollars, which will go off sale in less than a month, also picked up nicely. These and more highlights follow:

  • 2009 Buffalo Gold Proof Coin sales continue to soften as compared to their first few days following their Oct. 19 launch. Another 4,316 were added, which is down nearly half from last week’s reported increase of 8,487. On the other hand, the bullion one-ounce versions climbed 13,500 versus the prior 11,000.

  • American Silver Eagles topped 25 million this week. Their latest seven-day sales rose by 750,000, which is down from the prior 850,000. American Gold Eagles are moving faster. 41,500 were sold in the last seven days compared to the previous 30,000.

  • UHR $20 Double Eagles snapped a two-week winning streak. Numbers came in at 1,098 and lagged behind the last gain of 1,453. The year-to-date tally is at 104,862.

Lincoln Presidency Cent and RollsThe fourth and final redesigned 2009 Lincoln cent launched in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Nov. 12. By the following Sunday and according to the latest US Mint sales report, 153,427 of the two-roll sets were scooped up by collectors. Crunching the numbers and moving the decimal point, that is 15.3 million pennies.

During the same initial days following the launch of the previous two pennies, 15.2 million of the third Professional Life cents sold, and 20 million of the second Rail Splitter pennies sold.

In contrast, it took almost two weeks for collectors to purchase 9.6 million of the first 2009 Lincoln Birthplace cents — although these set the demand tone for the next three cents when the Mint unexpectedly stopped selling them. The following table provides the latest sales data for the Lincoln penny rolls.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageGold coins are again the major talking points coming out of the latest US Mint sales data. Buffalo gold proof numbers are less spectacular than those from last week’s report. But they are far from shabby and a retreat from the earlier blazing sales was to be expected.

Standing out also were Ultra High Reliefs, bullion Eagles, Braille dollars and the Mint’s traditional annual sets. All improved over the prior week. Our bullet point analysis follows:

  • In less than two weeks, collector 2009 Buffalo Gold Proof Coins surpassed the 2008 sales figures of 25,896. Another 8,487 were added, raising the total to 27,955. In the same family, the sister bullion versions are now at 132,000 for an increase of 15,500 in the last seven days. They are 40,000 shy of topping the same sized 2008-dated sales.

  • American Silver Eagles climbed 850,00 during the same seven-day period, which was 151K better than the last. American Gold Eagles spurred ahead 30,000 — more than double the prior figure. November is historically one of the better months of the year for bullion coins.

  • UHR $20 Double Eagles advanced for a second week. Weekly numbers came in at 1,453 for a year-to-date tally of 103,764. Last week’s report showed a pick up of 1,045 while the week prior was a lowly 562.

2009 American Buffalo Gold Proof CoinInaugural sales of the 2009 American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin are exceptionally strong, according to newly released figures by the United States Mint. Four-day sales of the 24-karat, .9999 fine gold collector coin came in at 19,468 — a tad shy of surpassing figures for the one-ounce 2008 Proof Buffalo Gold.

The proof coin went on sale Thursday, Oct. 29, at 12:00 noon ET. Few issues were reported in ordering — via the phone or the US Mint’s website — during the first several hours of availability, unlike the recent launch of the Lincoln Coin and Chronicles Set where the 50,000 authorized sold out within 30 hours.

The Buffalos were released at an issue price of $1,360.00. That was expected to hold some collectors at bay. Further complicating a decision to order was the falling gold prices last week. The US Mint prices its collector gold coins based on a weekly average of the London Gold fix. If the gold price falls below $1050 an ounce, the Buffalo and UHR gold piece will be dropped $50.

US Bullion CoinsOctober was explosive for US bullion coins. Unprecedented demand for gold and silver coins elevated the month with US Mint recorded sales levels that are either at or near the top of the all-time high charts.

Bullion American Gold Buffalo and American Silver Eagle coins enjoyed their best October ever.

For the Silver Eagles, more than double the amount were sold last month at 2,939,000, than in any previous October. The month also stands out as the time when 2009 became the best selling year ever for eagles — dating all the way back to their launch in 1986. The latest numbers pad the tally further with 23,406,500 delivered in the first 10 months of this year.

The following table displays the annual sales figures since the series began in 2006, placing a perspective on how strong demand was during those two October weeks.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageUS Mint collector coins moved like molasses when compared to sales figures of two weeks ago. But bullion coins — especially gold — still had a little swagger in their step. October will be a robust month for American Eagles and American Buffalos.

These and other highlights follow:

  • UHR Double Eagles took a significant hit, rising sadly by only 562. Since they went on sale Jan. 22, there has been one single instance when weekly sales were lower. The reason? Gold has been on a five day losing streak, which started last Thursday. It makes sense for collectors to be cautious in buying with expectations of a $50 price decline. We missed that reduction by just 28.8 cents.

  • In the Lincoln category, the Chronicles sets were taken off standby status last week with the max 50,000 officially allocated. Lincoln Cent Proof Sets climbed by 4,900, which was less than half of the prior 10,921 increase.

  • 2009 US Mint and US Mint Proof Sets were the biggest unit gainers, rising 21,826 and 22,613 respectively. The proof sets were actually up a tad bit. Not so for the mint sets which previously climbed by 74,474. The 500,000 milestone is still nearly 11K away.

2009 Gold Buffalo Bullion CoinThe United States Mint has sold 110,500 one-ounce American Buffalo $50 Gold Bullion Coins since they were released on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2009.

To place that in perspective, in less than two weeks bullion dealers have purchased 64.2 percent of the total (172,000) that was sold in all of 2008.

There appeared to a touch of dry spell in sales for several days. The US Mint generally updates bullion figures daily. The Gold Buffalos remained at 86,000 from last Wednesday morning until Tuesday morning when the tally jumped to 106,500. By close of business Tuesday, numbers were at 110,500.

The Mint will begin selling the collector proof Buffalo coins this Thursday at noon ET. Demand is expected to be fierce. No order limits are in place.
