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.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageDemand for gold coins and 2009 Proof Sets is turning out to be exceptionally high this September, US Mint sales data reveals.

The latest weekly sales figures also show collector coins were mixed compared to the week prior, with very narrow up or down changes. Several highlights follow:

  • For the third straight time, clad 2009 Proof Sets have outpaced their prior week sales. Collectors purchased another 42,077, which surpasses the previous weekly gains of 40.5K, 27.9K and then 18.4K. The reason for the surge? Perhaps the Fall US Mint coin catalog is reminding collectors to buy the popular annual offering. More than 1.1 million have sold.

  • Bullion American Gold Eagle coins are flying high compared to the last two months. More than 30,000 were scooped up per week this month. The new total is 92,500. That is already higher than figures from August or July.

  • Bullion Silver Eagles had their best week this month, surging 500,000. The month may turn out to be the slowest for the silver coins this year, but the 1.1 million already sold ranks it as the second best September ever (since ’86).

US Mint Sales Figures ImageThe latest round of US Mint coin sales is near a reversal of last week when activity had picked up almost across the board and several milestones had been breached.

This week there are just a few bright spots to talk about… many of the numbers are simply less than exciting. The highlights follow:

  • The 18-coin clad 2009 Proof Set was one of the standouts, with weekly sales higher for a third straight time. Numbers soared another 40,511. That compares to the prior 27,913 increase which followed an 18,448 gain.

  • 2009 Presidential Dollar Proof Sets also shined, albeit less bright. Numbers increased 3,196 versus the previous 2,805. They also topped 600,000.

US Mint Sales Figures Image US Mint coin sales increased across the board, except for a few gold coin and roll stragglers that fell behind their previous pace. Proof sets and silver coins shined the brightest. And a couple of notable barriers were smashed to rubble.

Several sales highlights follow:

  • 2009 Lincoln Cent Proof Sets hurdled over the 100 thousand mark with less than two weeks on the sales block. Between their launch on Wednesday, Aug. 26, and Sunday, Sept. 6, a total of 101,758 were scooped up by collectors. 35,408 more were sold since the last report.

  • UHR $20 Double Eagles couldn’t surpass their prior weekly performance which was the highest in months with 4,110 new sales. But they did leap over 90,000 and added another 2,979. Coin dealers may have liked the new 25-coin order limit, but the recent UHR $50 price increase looks to have been a detraction. The gold piece was one of the few coins to show slippage this week.

  • As we predicted last week in a pure common sense call, the 18-coin clad 2009 Proof Sets passed 1 million. Numbers jumped an eye-brow raising 27,913 versus the prior 18,448.

US Mint sales data this week provides a first glimpse into Lincoln Proof Set numbers. They also show higher demand for UHR coins even before the 25-coin limit increase. And they indicate the briefest of stopping points before 2009 Clad Proof Sets hurdle over the 1 million mark. Several sales highlights follow: UHR $20 Double […]


US Mint Sales Figures Image US Mint coin sales trended slightly lower last week with the exception of silver coin demand which was on the rise. Frankly, no numbers unexpectedly shouted and said "look at me."

Here are several highlights, plus a few topics that should make next week sales figures more interesting:

  • UHR $20 Double Eagle sales continue to flow strong with 2,259 added for a new total of 82,959. (News of the week is about the new 25 coin limit increase.)

  • Jackson’s Liberty First Spouse proof coin sold out last week and that proved to be beneficial for the uncirculated option. It rose by 261 versus the prior weekly climb of only 34.

  • American Silver Eagle Bullion coins settled down, no doubt thanks to the recent volatile movement of silver prices. While the last sales report showed the eagles had jumped by 475,000 in a week, the latest seven day gain is down to 275,000. Bullion American Gold Eagles fared slightly better although demand was still down with a rise of 15,000 versus the previous 22,000.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageSince many coin collectors spend their time outside of the hobby during the summer months, US Mint weekly sales can tend to be routine and borderline boring. That is not the case with the latest round of coin figures.

Highlights follow:

  • In a single week, August demand for American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins nearly doubled. 23,000 had been sold up through the 12th. By the 19th, 45,000 were purchased. For the year, the total has jumped to 801,500.

  • Silver Eagle Bullion Coins continue their blazing sales trail. 17,739,000 have been sold this year. Another 475,000 left US Mint doors in the last seven days alone.

  • Collectors purchased 2,901 more UHRs in a week (see UHR Double Eagle Sales Top 80K.)

  • 2009 Lincoln Formative Year Cents sold out at 300,000, as inaugural sales of the Illinois Lincoln penny two-roll sets reached 152,146. (See 15.2 Million Professional Life Cents Sold in Four Days.)

  • Freshly minted Julia Tyler First Spouse Gold Coins reached 2,087 for the proof and 1,125 for the uncirculated. At the same time, the proof Jackson’s Liberty First Spouse Coin sold out. The latest US Mint figures show their total at 7,806.

  • And for the final highlights, 2009 Proof Sets are gliding along. The clad set climbed another 19,906 and is heading toward one million. The silver set rose by 17,277 with an eye toward 500,000.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageDominating American Silver Eagle sales reach 630,000 in less than two August weeks. 2009 Lincoln Rail Splitter Cents make their final push over the 300,000 barrier. And UHR $20 Double Eagle Gold Coins swing toward 78,000.

Impressive? Certainly. But so are 2009 Proof Sets numbers. The 18-coin clad set jumped another 21,006 to hit 936,674. The million mark looks to be a few short weeks away. Silver proof sets rose 20,716 to settle at 406,455.

In other related news this week, Lincoln Formative Years penny rolls sold out. The latest two-roll set tally is 300,246, which will be close to the final sales figure for the second 2009 penny. The US Mint timed the sell out as the third 2009 cent, the Lincoln Professional Life penny, takes center stage Thursday. The coin is ceremoniously launched and two-roll sets go on sale. Collectors will anxiously await next week’s figures.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageUHR $20 gold coins roared, Silver Eagles soared, American Samoa quarters performed and US Mint Proof Sets marched forward.

The latest US Mint sales figures also include a fair share of average and sub-par numbers, but the highlights are more interesting:


  • Ultra High Relief $20 Gold coins awakened from a several month slumber. Lifting the one-coin order limit to ten helped prop the gold pieces up by 3,799 to reach 75,048. The weekly number jumped fivefold.

  • Bullion Silver Eagles are coins to watch. They recorded the best July since the series launched in 1986. More than 2.8 million were sold. 200,000 are already gone in a young month of August.

  • American Samoa quarters also made headlines. New Mint production figures show them to be the least minted quarter in generations. Their inaugural week quarter-dollar sales were also impressive. Buyers scooped up more than 17,000 two-roll sets.

  • 2009 Proof Sets are cooling, but their weekly increases are still worthy of notice. Collectors purchased more than 915,000 proof sets since June 1 and nearly 386,000 silver sets since July 17.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageProof sets could hardly perform better for the US Mint and bullion silver eagles continue to flash forward at a striking pace. The numbers do the talking…


  • In a single week, 37,232 more Mint Proof Sets sets were sold, bringing the total to 888,329 since June 1.

  • As of July 17, collectors purchased an arresting 350,572 Silver Proof Sets with 79,200 added in a week.

  • And to top it off, American Eagle Silver bullion coins sprung past 16 million for the year and 2,585,000 for a yet to be completed July — already registering the second best month and continuing at a record-setting yearly pace.


Other US Mint coin sales were less brag worthy. Ultra High Relief $20 Gold coin demand was nearly unchanged. 865 more were sold compared to the prior 868. Better numbers should kick in next week as a result of the Mint’s coin limit unleashing on Monday.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageWhat a difference a week can make. Collectors partially awoke from a summer slumber and began to buy US coins.

Ultra High Relief $20 Gold coins surpassed 70,000, newly released 2009 Silver Proof Sets reached 271,372 in three days, American Eagle Silver bullion coins topped 15.8 million, and demand was higher for the remaining US Mint silver coins.

Aside from several straggling First Spouse Gold coins, the US Mint had a good week — at least better than the last. Even non silver 2009 Proof Sets emerged from a haze to rise 45,729 compared to the last reported 19,547. Tagging along were improved Lincoln Formative Years penny figures, jumping 5,179 from the prior 3,572.
