New sales figures from the United States Mint show that there’s not a lot of remaining 2017-S Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Sets.
Collectors and dealers scooped up 217,514 sets, or 96.7% of the possible 225,000. That leaves 7,486 left, and that was as of Sunday, Aug. 6.
The collection, which launched Aug. 1 as a part of the Mint’s yearlong celebration of its 225th anniversary, includes 10 enhanced uncirculated coins. (See photos of the set.) Each is produced at the San Francisco Mint "using a combination of laser frosted areas and an unpolished field that accentuates design details."
Early demand was strong as the sets became unavailable within 7 minutes of their release. Their sales reopened early morning Aug. 3 after the Mint reconciled orders and cancellations. They have been available ever since then at catalog.usmint.gov.
In related news, the status Aug. 8 of the 20th Anniversary 2017-W Proof American Platinum Eagle turned to unavailable. The U.S. Mint’s figures through Sunday had its total at 9,226 of the allotted 10,000.
