Proof Silver Eagles, Girl Scouts Coins Compete for Top Sales

by Coin Collecting News on March 22, 2013

While no new US Mint coin collecting products debuted last week, 2013 Proof Silver Eagles and 2013 Girl Scouts coins seemed to compete for the top weekly sales, and a 2012-dated item slid into one of the top three positions.

2013-W Proof Silver Eagle Coin

2013-W Proof Silver Eagles again led weekly sales among all US Mint coin collecting products

This year’s American Silver Eagle Proof Coins from West Point climbed by 11,982 in the latest sales report. That number was slightly higher than sales taken in the previous week, which as 11,471. When all the orders going back to its launch date of January 24 are tallied, its new total came to 375,740.

Proof versions of the commemorative 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar Coins added 8,117 new orders in their third appearance on the US Mint chart. This level of demand quickly outpaced sales of the uncirculated version that garnered 2,913 orders. All together, 74,119 of the 350,000 maximum Girl Scouts coins have been scooped up by collectors to-date.

The 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set, the last remaining offering from the U.S. Mint to contain a 2012-W American Silver Eagle Uncirculated Coin, suddenly awakened from a ho-hum weekly sales pace of a few hundred to a remarkable 5,864 per the latest US Mint sales report. This jump easily placed the dollar coin set in third place among the weekly numismatic best sellers. The collectible product debuted last September, and its new total is 23,919.

A coin collecting product to lose sales in this round was the 2013 White Mountain Quarters Two-Roll Set, having 80 coins from just Philadelphia and Denver. Its numbers usually increase by at least one hundred per week since it is so new, but this time it fell by 11,824 to land at 13,391. In percentages, it was a fall of nearly 47% compared to the previous week. The dramatic change could be due to returns, cancellations or accounting adjustments, but a correction in the next report is also a possibility.

All available sales on US Mint coin collecting products are reported below. The first three columns of the table provide weekly United States Mint sales increases between the listed time periods, offering a sense of recent trends. The last column provides the latest United States Mint sales totals as of March 18, 2013. Bullion coin tables are found toward the bottom, with the most recent sales as of March 21, 2013. Of note, the 5 oz. bullion coins for 2012 sold out.
