2010 American Eagle Gold Bullion CoinThe latest United States Mint bullion coin sales figures have been released and the stats show authorized buyers purchased 84,000 American Eagle Gold coins during February 2010, which was 1,000 less than the prior month.

Atypical from other years is that the tally includes both 2009 and 2010-dated coins. This year was the first time in the U.S. Mint’s history of selling the gold coins that a current year’s eagles were not offered during the first week of January. Exceptional demand for the eagles in 2009 resulted in a delayed release of 2010s.

The 84,000 total makes last month the fifth best February ever for the gold series that dates back to 1986, but the level is below the output from 2009. Better same month sales include:

US Mint Sales Figures Image 2010 Presidential Dollar Proof Sets are at the top of the leaderboard in weekly sales for the second straight time, according to the latest United States Mint numismatic stats. After 1 1/2 weeks of availability and with the helping hand of a boisterous weekly increase of 75,626, the four-coin set has jumped over the 300,000 marker.

With the Lincoln Presidential $1 coin proof included within, it looks to be a sure bet that the 2010 sets will easily topple last year’s sets. Those were available for just over a year and have adjusted sales of 627,925.

The Millard Fillmore $1 coin launched into circulation one week ago. The initial roll sales are solid, although they are a tad behind the inaugural numbers of the prior two Presidential $1 coin releases. Collectors purchased 26,008 of the Philadelphia rolls and 25,521 of the Denver rolls.

Gold coins enjoyed decent weekly gains. The proof Gold Buffalo advanced 771 to 47,599. As a group, First Spouse Gold coins rallied by 446.

The United States Mint headquarters in Washington, D.C. was shutdown for most of last week thanks to the two blizzards that blew through the East Coast. The wintry havoc not only closed the Mint and other federal agency doors, but left collectors high and dry when it came to the weekly coin sales figures. This […]

The numismatic landscape for US Mint 2009-dated coins has remained on the sleepy side of sales since mid-December. The attention-grabbing action surrounds the new 2010 products. 2010-dated Gold and Silver Eagles made waves in January. The eagles swaggered last month toting prolific numbers. But then sales appeared to dive into nothingness as not a single […]

American Eagle Gold Bullion CoinThe United States Mint has closed out the month of January, publishing strong sales figures for its precious metals bullion coins.

American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin demand hit a record pace. Interest in American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins was elevated, reaching the top ten in all-time January sales. The numbers are more than interesting considering several factors, including New York gold prices falling 1.1 percent in January and silver prices plunging 3.9 percent.

Silver Eagle sales tallied up to an amazing 3,592,500, making it the best January ever for the one ounce silver coins. In comparison, only two months in the history of the program have ever seen numbers topping the 3 million mark. The most recent was March of last year with 3,132,000. The all-time leading month is December 1986 at 3,696,000 — the first full month in which the coins were available under the new American Eagle Bullion program.

The amount of money coin collectors have been spending on numismatic coins has fallen since the middle of December, as a holding pattern is apparent by those who have already made their 2009-dated purchases and are awaiting the US Mint’s new offerings. The latest weekly sales report from the United States Mint is the least […]

American Eagle Silver bullion coinUS Mint American Silver Eagle sales have already scored their best ever January. Who would have thought? After all, there is still a full week left in the month. On top of that, the bullion coins are rationed, they were unavailable for seven days, and U.S. silver futures tumbled 8.1 percent last week (6.7 percent in London).

Yet, January 2010 is now in the history books. It is the best starting month of a year for the series that dates back to 1986. Despite all the aforementioned obstacles, authorized buyers scooped up 3,090,500 Silver Eagles from the United States Mint as of Friday, Jan. 22.

January is a traditionally strong month for these always popular coins, with over one million in sales registered in all but two years since 1999. Making this year’s three million plus start all the more impressive is the fact that even reaching the two million mark would have been historical. That happened only once before in Jan. 2008.

In what has become almost a weekly routine of late, the United States Mint again reported unimpressive sales according to their latest figures. A few bright spots did emerge, however. The most impressive gains come not from a numismatic item, but from the US Mint’s bullion coins. Recall that the bullion 2009 American Silver Eagles […]

US Mint Sales Figures Image US Mint numismatic coin sales dipped, marking the third general weekly decline in four weeks. The excitement level of the 2009-dated coins is waning as eyes begin to turn toward upcoming series, like the America the Beautiful Quarters products, 2010 Lincoln cent and 2010 silver dollars — especially the Boy Scout commemoratives.

Sales were not completely sour. Last week’s rising gold and silver prices were beneficial to most US Mint precious metal products. Momentum picked up for American Eagle Gold and Silver bullion coins, the proof American Buffalo Gold piece, and several First Spouse Gold Coins. Highlights from the most recent United States Mint sales report follow:

  • Final sales figures for the UHR $20 Double Eagle Gold coin are now known. During their availability from Jan. 22 to Dec. 31, collectors purchased 115,178 of the 24-karat, .9999 fine gold coins.

  • 2009 American Silver Eagle Bullion coins sold out earlier this week. In total, 29,134,000 left US Mint inventories, earning the 2009s first place in annual and overall sales across every other eagle dating back to the series launch in 1986. Companion 2009 Gold Eagle Bullion coins jumped 14,000 during the last seven days, bringing their January sales to 20,000. The Mint will not offer them much longer. Tuesday is the scheduled release for the one-ounce 2010-dated eagles — both gold and silver.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageSales of collector coins from the United States Mint appear to have stopped their three week slide, but not by much. According to their latest report, no new drastic drops are apparent. Unfortunately, also equally missing from that data are significant gains.

While not huge in numbers, the First Spouse Gold Coins saw almost across the board improvement, not that this was hard to do after the previous week’s disappointing sales.

Leading the pack was the Margaret Taylor First Spouse Proofs with a 110 unit increase. The only spouse to show a set back was the Letitia Tyler Uncirculated Coin, declining 11 from the week prior to 9 new sold. You may recall that each of these coins are struck from 1/2 ounce, 24-karat gold. That sets their price points of $729 for the proofs and $716 for the uncirculated coins, which is steep for most casual collectors.

2009-dated American Silver Eagle bullion coins are showing consistent demand with 131,000 sold so far in the month of January. Gold Bullion Eagles came in at 6,000. As a reminder, the 2010-dated versions will not be offered by the US Mint until January 19.

A few other striking items from the weekly sales report:
