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.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageCollectors had more on their minds than buying coins last week, the latest US Mint figures reveal. Sales were modest, held in check by diversionary summer travel and the celebration of an extended 4th of July holiday weekend.

As has been the case for several weeks, the Mint 2009 Proof Set led in sales. Another 101,409 were purchased on top of the last report, bringing the total sold to 785,821. It looks like the million figure will be breached by month’s end.

Despite that, a few milestones were achieved as we so often like to point out in our weekly heading. 2009 Proof Sets again retreated from their launch week highs, which is naturally normal.

US Mint Sales Figures ImageNew UHR $20 gold coin sales double up, Guam quarters soar, Braille Silver Dollars sink, and Lincoln Rail Splitter totals approach 24 million. To the US Mint numbers…

Bags and rolls of Guam quarters went on sale May 26 and in less than a week their numbers outshined the first weekly performance of the Puerto Rico quarters. And that happened prior to collectors learning of the extremely low Guam quarter mintage. Instead of rehashing the same details here again, read the CoinNews article entitled Guam Quarter Mintage & Sales Figures.

Sales of new Lincoln penny rolls continue to slow, yet an additional 14,539 of the two-roll sets were purchased just last week. An amazing 23.7M Rail Splitter Cents were sold from May 14 to May 31.

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.
