US Mint Sales Figures ImageLincoln Rail Splitter cents are still in demand, Braille Silver Dollar sales surge, Puerto Rico quarters are expired and UHR $20 gold coins continue mostly at their regular pace.

Repeating what most coin collectors already know, the Lincoln Rail Splitter cent went on sale Thursday, May 14. By Sunday, 200,055 of the two-roll sets were sold, equating to more than 20 million pennies. Flash forward more than a week to the lastest US Mint sales data… 22,771 more sets have sold for a total of 222,826. For background, read the CoinNews article from earlier this week entitled Lincoln Rail Splitter Sales “Normalizing”.

Two Braille Silver Dollars returned from their flight aboard space shuttle Atlantis on Sunday. During their orbital trip, sales of the coins experienced their own mini launch here on earth –although not to the 50,000 level the NFB wanted from the public. Still, 10,000 more Braille dollars were sold, which pushed the gas pedal down some. The proof jumped the most, rising a healthy 8.0 percent over the prior numbers. To date, 165,741 of the allotted 400,000 silver coins have been sold.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageLincoln Formative Year cents are on fire, UHR $20 gold coins are selling at a level pace, demand for Braille Bicentennial Dollars has picked up slightly, and Puerto Rico quarter sales are mixed.

The second redesigned 2009 Lincoln cent went on sale Thursday, May 14. By Sunday, a mind-blasting 200,055 of the two-roll sets were sold. (See 20 Million Lincoln Rail Splitter Pennies Sold.)

Although the public is happier with improved access to the new pennies, collectors are generally disappointed as US Mint sales continue with no apparent end in sight, making the cents far from "scarce." In the Log Cabin penny launch, the Mint concluded sales after 96,000 of the two-roll sets were sold. Then, more than one collector was taken aback by the unexpected stoppage. With this series, the Mint is in an apparent no-win situation.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageCoin collectors have shifted into a lower buying gear during the last several days. While US Mint sales of UHR $20 gold pieces inched, or more aptly millimetered higher, demand fell for Braille Bicentennial Dollars and Puerto Rico quarters.

Ultra High Relief (UHR) $20 gold coins had just come in 27 short of 61,000 in the previous report. That number has been breached, plus 757 more. Sales increased 1.3 percent compared to the prior 1.0 percent rise. As a side note, the Mint increased the UHR price Wednesday by $50 and that is likely to play into next week’s sales figures to some degree.

For the second straight time, Braille Bicentennial Dollar sales have declined. However, the newest batch of numbers is down substantially while those from last week remained impressive for a collection of coins that have been on sale since March 26. The tables below shows the tale, but suffice it to say, total new sales were down by more than 75 percent to just 4,617 compared the prior 20,306.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageLincoln Silver Dollars and Lincoln Birthplace cent rolls look to have settled into their final figures, according to the latest sales report from the United States Mint. The numbers have remained constant for two consecutive weeks.

The proof Lincoln silver dollar officially sold out Tuesday morning, although new orders had been on a "waiting list" since March 27 — meaning the Mint would process a new order only if an old one prior to the 27th was cancelled.

Ultra High Relief (UHR) $20 gold coins picked up slightly, with 1,300 sold compared to the prior week’s reported 491. Likely helping somewhat was the Mint $50 price reduction on April 8.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageThe latest US Mint sales figures has data shifting not only up, but down. Lincoln $1s and Birthplace penny roll totals were clipped lower. Braille Silver Dollars improved nicely, and the pace of Ultra High Relief (UHR) Gold coin slowed even more.

A magical correction has appeared for the Lincoln Silver Dollars. Whether it was customer returns, cancellations or Mint accounting tweaks, the proof and uncirculated sales figures are now aligned with the stars. Combined sales dropped by 15,614.

A perfect 325,000 sold is listed for the proof and an all-natural 125,000 for the uncirculated option. And with those numbers, 50,000 are left for the special 5-coin proof set the Mint will release later this year. Last week the numbers were twisted in what appeared to be an apparent oversell of coins, leaving less than 35,000 coins free for the special set.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageThis week there is a huge surprise in the Lincoln Silver Dollar sales figures. Additionally, we learn how the new Braille commemoratives are performing, say goodbye (again) to Lincoln Birthplace cent rolls and watch sales of the Ultra High Relief (UHR) Gold coins sputter to a near crawl.

First to the surprise. When the Lincoln Silver dollar availability date was announced, the US Mint said 50,000 of the proofs were allocated for a special five-coin set. In an eyebrow raiser, we learn that amount is likely to be substantially less.

The law authorizing the bicentennial Lincolns permits a maximum mintage of 500,000. The latest US Mint figures show 465,614 Lincoln Silver dollars have already sold. Unless something gives, that leaves less than 35,000 for the special set.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageIn this week’s reported US Mint figures, Lincoln Silver Dollar sales sprinted toward the finish as one coin sold out, sales of Lincoln Birthplace penny rolls were hopping mad, and Ultra High Relief (UHR) Eagle Gold coins picked up steam. To the numbers…

The Uncirculated Lincoln Silver Dollar sold out Tuesday. Orders may still be placed, but the chance for any to go through is based solely on an older order being cancelled. The latest Mint stats show a total of 135,793 have been sold, with an increase of 8,830 over the last numbers.

Sales of the proof Lincoln version will end soon. As of this writing, there are likely just hundreds left. 312,075 have been purchased. With both silver and proof options combined, 447,868 are now gone. Only 450,000 are permitted, plus another 50,000 proofs reserved for a special set yet to be announced.
