Starting sales retreated for the 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set compared to the first three annual issues, the latest U.S. Mint sales figures show.
Debut sales were 49,051 between the set’s release on Jan. 8, 2013 through to Jan. 14, 2013, marking a drop of 12,130 units from last year’s start and off 26,705 units from the first America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Sets issued in 2010.
Opening demand is an indicator but it does not necessarily drive a product’s success. Based on the two prior releases, it appears eventual sales are leveling off near the 150,000 level.
