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.

UHR $20 Double Eagle Gold Coin2009 $20 Ultra High Relief Gold Double Eagle sales exploded with a sizzling 28,183 purchased by the end of its Jan. 22 launch day. Action continued to be strong despite the initial $1,189.00 price, which is now considered a dreamy bargain for buyers in today’s market. By the following Tuesday, Jan. 27, the number jumped to 41,664. How have they done since? A week-by-week analysis paints the picture.

After Jan., orders settled. As spring started, summer began and then July ended, there were only four times when UHR orders rose above 1,000 a week. In fact, average weekly sales were hitting 875 — a far cry from the early days.

A higher price for the coin — up $100 by now — and the US Mint’s mandated one order limit per household was stifling sales. The former was a result of surging gold prices. The latter was proven true on July 27 when the Mint increased household limits from one to ten. Following the change, sales shot up another 3,800 in less than a week. The numbers later moved with several peaks and valleys, but weekly gains easily topped 2,000 until the final days in Sept., or for nearly two months. (In between, the Mint increased order limits to 25 on Aug. 31 and lifted them entirely on Sept. 21.)

US Mint Sales Figures Image The first round of sales figures for US Virgin Islands Quarters are now available, as are the numbers for the newly launched US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set. The quarters are doing fine, the sets are off to the races.

Last week’s report showed that the Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set had unexplained fiery sales. This week’s numbers are colder. Several of the US Mint’s proof sets, however, warmed up. These and other highlights follow:

  • The first round of numbers are in for bags and rolls of US Virgin Islands Quarters. Sales are strong. Compared to the prior inaugural American Samoa quarter figures, the 100-coin bags and two-roll sets are moving faster. Both the P & D 1000-coin bags, however, are trailing.

  • 2009 US Mint Sets have experienced exceptional collector demand during their first days on sale. Collectors purchased 297,842 between Thursday and Sunday. For more on this story, read 2009 US Mint Set Sales on Fire.

  • Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Sets are back to normal. Last week’s report showed an irregular super leap of 11,217. The latest increase is 1,181, which is inline with typical weekly demand.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageBullion American Eagle Gold and Silver Coins ended September in shining fashion, but recent demand has mostly weakened for collector proof and uncirculated coins. That is, except for uncirculated 2009 Presidential Dollar Sets. Their sales inexplicably blasted off like a rocket.

These and more highlights follow:

  • Bullion American Gold Eagles marked the end of the month by registering the 3rd best September since 1986 with 115,500. The month was also the 4th best of this year — just missing the 3rd slot by a mere 501. At year’s end, 2009 annual eagles sales should rank 4th or 5th best of all time. One million is within very close reach. 954,000 is the current count.

  • 2009 bullion American Silver Eagles have already assured their place in history. It is the second best September ever for the coins, but more impressively, annual sales are locking in to a record all time high. 20,467,500 silver eagles have already been sold this year. 2008-dated eagles earned the top spot last year with 20,583,000. Say goodbye to that, and soon.

  • For no apparent rhyme or reason, Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Sets exploded. The tally soared 11,217 to 85,478. At $15.95 a pop, the Mint pulled in a cool $179,000. Last week’s report showed a sleeping increase of just 1,278. As mentioned before, the US Mint Fall catalog arrived on collector’s doorsteps to help boost sales, but other coins/sets didn’t have similar astronomical, above and beyond increases. This one is a bit of a mystery.

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.
