US Mint Sales: 2011 Proof Gold Eagles, Five Ounce Silver Bullion Coins Debut

by Coin Collecting News on April 26, 2011

2011 Proof American Gold Eagle

The newest appearance in the US Mint sales figures include the 2011 Proof Gold Eagle coins and two of the 2011 America the Beautiful five ounce Silver Bullion Coins.

The US Mint sold 29,353 Proof Gold Eagles between their launch on Thursday, April 21 and Sunday, April 24. Broken out, it was 13,401 of the individual coins and 3,988 of the Four-Coin sets. The debut sales were not as strong as 2010’s opening numbers, but they were stronger than 2008’s debut. The US Mint did not strike proof gold Eagles in 2009.

The 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set was also released during the week, on Tuesday, April 19, but the Mint did not include it in their sales report. The numbers for the 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set, however, were finally noted. Three weeks after their debut, the Quarters Silver Proof Set officially entered the sales table for the first time. They went on sale April 1 and hit 78,054 sometime during the first 18 days. Sales of the silver quarters set was temporarily suspended back on Monday, April 18.

To get an idea of how popular the America the Beautiful series has become, the clad 2011 Quarters Proof Set, which has slightly more than five weeks of sales under its belt, brought its sales total up to 75,207 after adding 3,284 in this round.

As mentioned earlier, the US Mint began accepting orders for the first two of the 2011 America the Beautiful five ounce silver bullion coins from their established network of Authorized Purchasers on Monday, April 25. In one day, they sold 153,400 coins. The two that were made available were the Gettysburg Silver Bullion Coin (Pennsylvania) and Glacier Silver Bullion Coin (Montana).

Other silver bullion coins also rocked and rolled. Silver Eagles added another 718,000 to their weekly numbers, so their month-to-date figure surpassed March’s total by 52,000 when it rolled in at 2,819,000. Now the Silver Eagle’s year-to-date sales cleared the 15 million marker and is sitting at 15,248,000.

The bullion Gold Eagles charged ahead as well. The one ounce Gold Eagle climbed 22,500 and the one tenth ounce rose 15,000. Next came the quarter ounce version with a gain of 12,000.

The first three columns of the table below provide weekly US Mint sales increases between the listed time periods, offering a sense of recent trends. The final column provides the latest US Mint sales totals as of Sunday, April 24, 2011. Bullion coin tables are found toward the bottom, with the most recent sales as of Tuesday, April 26. (NLA = No Longer Available.)
