Uncirculated Abigail Fillmore First Spouse Gold Coin

Weekly sales articles highlighted several US Mint products, but news headlines keyed on gold coins — collector First Spouse Gold Coins and the new bullion 2011 American Buffalo Gold Coins.

First Spouse Gold Coins were in focus because sales jumped nicely for the series and two of the 24-karat gold coins sold out, leaving only four remaining for buyers when there are usually eight. The two that sold out were the uncirculated versions honoring Jane Pierce and Abigail Fillmore.

In terms of weekly gains for all combined, 968 of the collector coins sold versus 336 during the prior week. The uncirculated Buchanan’s Liberty led all sales with more than half of the total at 493. The proof version sold out earlier this year, making the remaining uncirculated more attractive.

The 2011 Buffalo Gold Coin was released on March 14 and it has been in the news frequently since. Its freshness and sustained sales increases have helped. In the latest round of US Mint weekly sales, the gold coins had risen another 9,500 to bring their total to 31,500. They have since advanced another 4,000 for a 35,000 tally as of Friday.

On the silver product side of the equation in US Mint weekly sales, it was the 2011 Silver Proof Set that was brightest. It leaped up nearly 26,000 to register its best weekly numbers since the several days following its release on January 25. The set past 300K as well.
