2011 US Mint Sales: Army Commemorative Coins Start

by Coin Collecting News on February 10, 2011

US Mint Coin Sales ReportDroves of buyers gobbled up US Mint numismatic products, according to this week’s sales report. The 2011 U.S. Army Commemorative Coins started with a decent bang, and this year’s Silver Proof Set propelled another 20K.

The Army Commemorative Coins debuted with the silver dollars as their leader. 46,895 proofs sold along with 20,698 of the uncirculated. Together the silver coin total came to 67,593. The clad half-dollar, or 50¢ piece, was close behind the silver dollar. Enthusiasts purchased 30,162 of the proofs and 19,528 of the uncirculated, which meant the clads came to 49,690. Rounding out the commemoratives were the $5 gold coins. 7,861 proofs and 3,045 uncirculated coins were taken, totaling 10,906.

Each denomination of the Army Commemorative Coins has a different design than the others. The coins launched on Monday, January 31, and they are the first of two kinds of commemoratives to be released in 2011. The 2011 Medal of Honor Commemorative Coins will launch on February 25.

2011 Silver Proof Sets added another 23,151 in their first full week on the market. That addition brought their total to 232,518. Their sales began back on Tuesday, January 25. As for the other top numismatic sellers, the 2011 Proof Set followed with a jump of 20,473. The remaining items did not surge quite as much. The next highest was the 2010 Silver Proof Set with a gain of 3,213.

The pace of American Eagle bullion coins cooled just a little. Silver Eagles increased by 937,000 since January 31. Their previous jump was 1,698,000. Annual sales are now 7,359,000.

In the gold arena, the one ounce Gold Eagles rose 25,500 and their annual total is at 156,000. The fractional one-quarter Eagle picked up 2,000 and the one-tenth ounce tacked on 5,000.
